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

I received the greatly anticipated Carve and Slice cut from Cindy. The whole experience was fantastic! I absolutely love my curls now and Cindy showed me how to take care of my hair to get the same results that she did. The atmosphere in the salon was upbeat and friendly. Loved every minute!!!!!
