I went today for a haircut and had a wonderful experience. Jerry gave me an outstanding haircut. He was fun, and made the experience very enjoyable. It was as if I was someone very special or a dignitary. I left feeling good. Jerry is an outstanding young man that has some major skills. Thank you again Jerry for a great time in your chair.

I cannot believe the cruelty I encountered at this establishment at 2:16 pm Saturday September 30, 2017. First I need to say that Google Search puts your Saturday hours 8:30 am - 5:00 pm. I walked into your establishment using my walker (I am only 49 years old) which took me more energy than you can imagine, as I was in the hospital for over a month where during a simple procedure a medical mistake made me have 30 strokes, I went blind in one eye and ended up with bacterial meningitis. At this time I cannot shower because I have a semi-permanent I.V. So today Saturday I took my sponge bath and told husband to take me to your school to get my hair washed, nothing else just a simple wash, no blowdry, nothing. I arrived at 2:16 pm. The very rude obnoxious lady at register says "Sorry we don't take clients after 2:00" I tell her all I need is my hair washed. She says we close at 3:00. I told her web says you close at 5:00. I say please, all I need is my hair washed and it took me so much energy to just get from my car to front door. She says, "well Policy, is policy" You had several students standing around doing nothing. I say "please" She says "nope, policy is policy" Your establishment is HEARTLESS. that woman is HEARTLESS. 44 minutes before you close and you couldn't do one simple hairwash with no other services. SHAME SHAME SHAME on your business. I will make sure that I will spread word of this treatment to everyone I know. I can't believe you turned away a sick person who took all her energy to give you business. I will pray for you and the heartless woman who turned me away.
