What To Expect
You'll receive a text the day of your appointment with instructions of what to do when you get to the salon location. You'll be able to choose your drink, music, and essential oil of choice before walking into the salon.
We'll have a thorough conversation about your hair to make sure we're both confident on how we should proceed with your service. You will feel listened to, excited, and taken care of as we explore solutions and plans to create your perfect custom hair color and cut.
We'll make a plan for when and what your next appointment will be, get you checked out, and send you off to go turn heads with your beautiful new hair color. After leaving your first appointment with me, I'll send you a post visit email with notes from our appointment. I will also be an available resource for you for more specific questions/support.
