Never had problems at the Eden Prairie location and always had low prices but the Bloomington location has higher prices and all my relaxers here have gone wrong with them leaving chemicals in my head to burn. This last time was the far worst leaving me with balding and chemical burns on my ears and scalp

I work near Empire and frequently deliver food there. It's always busy, which made me curious... was it THAT great of a place? I took a couple of different brochures which included a list of services and their cost (SUPER reasonable/cheap!). I made an appointment for the next day. Everyone I talked to was super helpful and friendly. The place was clean and there were no chemical smells! I had my hair lightened and recolored and never had to breathe in any unpleasant odors normally associated with hair treatments. I love how my hair turned out and have gotten many compliments on it. I will definitely be back as well as recommend anyone to Empire. Thanks guys!
