I drove from Nashville because I heard of a student by the name of Toya. When I arrived to the school she had the most amazing personality. We discuss the needs of my hair and when I say she did my hair so fye 🔥like she was a celebrity stylist 💪🏽. Toya had my blonde waves looking like I had an Ocean on top of my head😳 My hair was soft, Empire use expensive products not cheap products like most school. And prices there are the same as a chic fila combo😂 I will be returning back🙌🏼Toya you have a new customer for life. Continue to do what you do Ma’am because you’re that lady💯 Mrs.Holmes😉
