      Cynthia gave me a wonderful haircut, fantastic products, and color that I love. My hair was unruly and very dry Cynthia helped me know how to treat my hair and with what products. It was well worth the visit!

          Cynthia taught me SO much about caring for my curly hair - all within our one appt time. I had wanted a Ouidad stylist for many years. I love my cut, it's easy to care for and style. Everyone with curly hair should automatically visit a Ouidad stylist and no other!

            My first cut was today and I will be coming back. Cynthia listens to you and really understands curly hair, When I got home it was the first time in many years my husband liked my hair and I love it. She taught me how to manage my curl. Thank you Cynthia!Diane
