"What's the difference between Balayage and Highlights?"
Balayage is a uniquely customized, hand-painted highlighting technique that blends into your root, giving a seamless "lived-in" look. It is lower maintenance upkeep since your roots are blended into the highlight, avoiding a distinct grow out line. Traditional Highlights start right at the root and tend to follow a more consistent pattern.
"Do you accept walk-in appointments?"
We accept walk-in appointment based on availability. It is not usually likely that we have day-of appointments but you are always welcome to call or come in to check availability.

"Do you carry products designed for curly hair?"
Yes we do! We carry DevaCurl products as well as some Moroccanoil products for curly hair. We have a few stylists that specialize in working with curly hair that can help prescribe the right hair care products for your specific hair. Terri and Lynda are our Deva Certified stylists but Drea, Brooklyn, Kiera, and Kenton also have experience working with curly hair.
"Should I come to my appointment with clean or dirty hair?"
It is a myth that hair color does better on dirty hair so if you are getting color done, definitely come with clean hair. Think of coloring your hair like painting a wall; you have to start with a clean base for the color to stick.
If you are getting an event style or updo, it actually is best if your hair is not freshly clean as it can make your hair too soft to hold a style. Day 2 hair is best for it to have a little grip without looking dirty.
A shampoo is included in most of our haircut services so if you are just getting a cut, your hair doesn't have to be perfectly clean; just clean enough that your stylist can see your hair texture, where it naturally falls, any cowlicks, etc.
