It was my first visit, and my first haircut since moving back to Maryland in July. I had no difficulties getting an appointment. The reception staff was friendly and welcoming, and the setting was lovely and relaxing. The shampoo staffer, whose name I am embarrassed to admit I cannot recall at the moment, was friendly and skilled. My stylist, Lisa Cronk, was a a pleasure with whom to work. She did a great job in working with me to get the right cut for my needs, especially considering the shagginess of my hair! I am pleased that I made the right choice for my haircut. It is a pleasure to watch professionals do their jobs well, and Hudson & Fouquet are professionals I highly recommend.
