I'm so glad we (husband goes to her as well) found Chrystal! She is so good at recommending what she thinks would look good and also in listening to what I would like. Her attention to detail and the way she explains what she will be doing is great. Takes her time. I love my hair!
Chrystal, is an amazing stylist. I followed her from the previous salon and I'm so glad I did! She is detail oriented and always anticipates any hair needs. Before coming to Chrystal, I had quite the hair journey. She has helped bring back my beautiful blonde color that I love, while maintaining the integrity of my hair. Chrystal is what you wish every colorist could be: Honest, meticulous in their work and easy to talk to.
Having my hair cut in an individual room makes it feel super comfortable especially considering COVID and the environment in the salon is lovely.
I love my cut and Chrystal is so fun to chat with while she does my hair. She really knows what shes doing and takes her time to make sure I leave happy with my hair.
