Both me & my husband have gone to Headlines recently. We both had Dee Gibson & she is great. I got my first all over color & she helped me pick the right color. She made me feel comfortable while she was doing it & it turned out great. My husband got a hair cut & beard trim. She did a great job. I liked her service so much that I am going back for a perm & a relic nails. Thanks Dee for a great job.

I was approached by Tanayah Clark to try a european facial and a body wrap. Never done anything like that before. I wasnt sure about it. But i am so glad i did listen to the young lady. She really knew her products and did an excellent job. I have never had such smooth and clean face. Thanks to Tanayah i get facials now. 👍

I always have a very pleasant service here. However I feel you should be informed when getting a service done, then asked, if you would like add ons that they do not tell you cost more than just the service you requested. Also, this is so embarrassing. Don't, I repeat don't ask the customer in front of the student if you would like to tip, RUDE. Some people cant afford it, some just don't want to, what ever the reason, It is rude. Why is it you think people come there? Because its pretty reasonable and the students are very nice. We would like to tip on our own free will, not be put in a very awkward position...............Thank you
