I appreciated the attention to detail at my first cut at this salon, from the observation of tilt of my head, where I parted my hair, how my hair dried naturally, where my hair was more wavy at the bottom versus the top, etc. Wow! Appreciated the care and attention that Kim showed, and love my new haircut!
Loving my new cut and color! Kim just gets my hair. She has a great eye for what will work well with my face shape and hair texture and always makes great recommendations. She even went the extra mile and showed me how to style it myself at home.
