Natalie is absolutely wonderful. She did such a great job layering mine and my daughters hair. She was so kind, friendly, and left our hair so nice. We liked her work so much that we referred my sister. My daughter can’t wait until she’s old enough to have blue and purple hair just like her favorite stylist. Thank you Natalie!!!
