What Our Clients Say
Although we are new to South Tampa, we aren’t new to the salon industry. Learn what our clients say about working with us.
“I just love Jessica. She’s a fantastic color specialist and hair dresser. She listens to my wants and needs and makes it work as best she can. I’m older so she takes that into consideration too. One day I’m going to say just do it. Do what you think would make me prettier and happier. I need to take risks and come out of my shell. She’s the one who can and will make this happen. I’m already looking forward to my next appointment!!”
“I’ve been going to Jessica for almost 10 years. I have never had a bad experience. She’s amazing with color and knows exactly what to recommend for my face shape and complexion. Highly recommend!!! I’ll keep going to see Jessica as long as she’s doing hair!”
“Jessica is fabulous and saved my hair! I came to her with damaged hair and a color I wasn’t really a fan of- she has gotten my hair restored and the color perfect. She always makes you feel welcome and pays close attention to detail. She’s the best!”
