I want to say what an amazing and friendly school! Every time I’m here I always have a great experience! The teachers are friendly and are always there when a student needs help so they don’t mess up on a client’s hair. I just recently got a touch up and every time I go I ask for Vaso. She’s always friendly and does her best to make you feel comfortable. She always does an amazing job! They all do! Thank you for this wonderful experience!

Sandra did a great job on my hair trim and scalp treatment with the tea tree mint products, and it felt so relaxing and refreshing walking out with confident, healthy hair. She also completed my look with a great nail polish color. I was originally going to go with a nude color, but she recommended a beautiful shade of purple and I'm in love with it! She has great taste in style and knows how to make the client comfortable and relaxed. Will be going back for sure to do an all over hair color with her in the near future!

I brought my girls to the Princess Party here and I was blown away! The staff and students went out of their way with making this event wonderful. My girls loved their hair, makeup, and nails. The students were so kind and talented. The decorations, music, games, snacks, all hit the right mark on making it a cute and fun atmosphere! I’ve never been to Hair Professionals before but I am definitely coming back!

I went and got my summer highlights done here and I'm so glad I decided to go to a salon this time instead of doing them myself. Being a school I was a little nervous but my stylist Sandra made me so comfortable seeing how confident and comfortable she was. She honestly did so much better than a stylist for 20+ Years did on my hair!!! I showed her a picture of what I wanted and SHE DID EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED!! I will be going back to her when I want to go lighter!! Highly recommend this place!!!
