Leilyn made it a pleasure getting a cut and style. Her positive attitude and friendly demeanor made me feel at home from the moment I walked in the door. She truly cared about my hair and showed me new styling strategies that I’ve been using ever since. I’ll be back, no question. - Karen Laukaitis

The students and teachers at Hair Professionals do an amazing job at making you feel welcome and listened to! They make sure to ask questions to clarify exactly what you want. My hair stylist, Lexi, made sure I was getting exactly the cut that I want. Checked in on the length and any changes that I wanted made. And all for a great price! Highly recommend
