Beth Block-“My experience with Lori and the salon was exceptional. I was greeted when I arrived and made to feel so special on my first visit. Lori was amazing and spent a great deal of time helping me choose a hairstyle. She took so much care in ensuring that my hair was cut and styled to perfection. My experience was simply wonderful. I look forward to my next scheduled appointment. I give this salon my highest recommendation.
