“Missi is sooo great!! She is so patient and got it done in whatever way was most comfortable for us and was infinitely understanding and accommodating! We will definitely be using her regularly and would recommend her service to anyone that dreads going the hair salon!”
“I don't even think my daughter noticed her hair being cut! What a great experience! Thank you so much for making her first haircut special.”
“Missi was great with my son who has difficulty in going to salons because of the smells of hair products and soap. She played with him, listened, and we got the hair cut done with a happy kiddo and Mom!”
