Close to my home. Relaxing, clean atmosphere, front desk welcome, offer of a drink, short wait time, good hair wash, friendly conversation, good music, thoughtful cut and styling, efficient checkout and appointment scheduling. And I can schedule appointments. Staff does not push product sales. The cost, tip, etc., can be pricey and that does concern me. I cannot recommend to friends because most use low cost salons which offer fewer ammenities. Most are satisfied with what they get. Thanks for the advice re a suspicious growth on my hairline. I made a Dr. appointment to have it checked. Appreciate. Hope this helps.
