    Stay FAR away!! Snobby, overpriced, not to mention they FRIED my hair beyond repair and offered less than nothing to help my SOS.

    Fun salon with staff that don't force you to buy their products. Sign me up.

    Love this place but they're "running late" every time I've ever been here...

    I've been going here for 4 years and have never been unhappy with my hair. However, stylists tend to leave often so its hard to build a relationship.

    Horrible customer service!! This place is a rip-off! Got a mediocre hair cut and bad color job that they REFUSED to fix. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere.

    Tried to get an appointment here and got THE WORST customer service. They hung up on me! Will never use this salon. They don't appreciate new business.

    Carlos gives straight hair an awesome cut; he made my thick hair feel totally weightless and cut it so that the ends naturally turn under ... magic! And drinking a Stella while kicking back = clutch.

    Carlos is the BEST hands down. I don't trust anyone with my hair except him. He also is the sweetest!

    If you want a masterful cut, see Carlos. He's thorough, precise, and really listens to his clients. I wouldn't trust my hair to anyone else.
