I love this place! I started coming to get my hair cut & colored when I lost my 3rd stylist at a local salon and have never regretted the move. The students are enthusiastic and well supervised and a lot of fun. I like to do "different" things with my hair and the 3 students I have had have been eager to try new ideas, colors and techniques. I am especially enjoying my current stylist student, Kari. She's confident, competent and is ready to run with any suggestions I might have. Thank you Elite!
