I had the most amazing facial done by Johanna. She was soft and gentle at the same time the massage really released all the knots and tension. If you’re skeptical about a student esthetician facial go to this school and ask for Johanna. She will not disappoint. She was always asking if this felt okay or if the pressure was okay. She will definitely make sure you have a relaxing time in her care. At the same time make your face glow like the sun.

Chelsea did my mom’s hair and did a great job! She did a major cut from long to a short bob. She also did highlights and thinned out her hair and styled it. It took 5 hours and she took her time to make sure it was what she wanted. Got it all done for super cheap. Highly recommend!❤️

I had a facial with Ruby T today and it was great. She tailored everything for me! The neck and foot massage felt heavenly. She also gave me great feedback for my skin and what I can do to improve my skin. My skin felt amazing when I left and I definitely recommend booking with her! ✨
