    Needed someone for my 9 and 11 year olds as they had long-outgrown kids Kuts and the like. Super quick and great. We will be back for sure. Thank you!

    Heather is magic. As new parents, we don't really know much about cute hairstyles for little kids beyond what we search for in Pinterest. And a lot of those haircuts won't even work for my 2yr.old's super fine/thin (but long) hair. I came in asking for a bang trim and "some kind of hairstyle that keeps it long," but Heather proposed an A-line bob and I went with it. Well, I'm so glad these 50+Yelp reviews are true because my daughter's hair now looks amazing and thicker. Heather is such a pro with her craft and of course, working with kids. My daughter was immediately comfortable and I can see that she trusted Heather right away. It was such a pleasant experience and I look forward to coming back. Thank you!!

    Took my 3yr old for his very 1st haircut with Heather today. Researched a lot prior to taking him because he had long curly hair down his back. I was super nervous prior to the appointment and it didn't help that I couldn't find her spot in the building so I was late She was more than we expected and super friendly making me and my son feel very comfortable and welcomed although we were late for our scheduled 20min appointment. She definitely more than delivered and I will absolutely bring him back to her. In fact, I just booked her for my other son. Thank you so much Heather. Sorry again we were late. Such a bad first impression from us!!

    Before we first started seeing Heather, my five-year-old son at the time was so nervous and scared to get his haircut. But when we went in to our first appointment, Heather was super friendly and treated him like a big kid. As she started, he was incredibly nervous and almost brought to tears, but as she progressed, she explained each step to him and she helped him realize that it didn't hurt at all! She turned a very scary experience for him into an exciting one, and now he loves getting his haircut, but ONLY by Heather!!

    Honestly, we were nervous. Our little buddy was born with a crazy mane of hair and we avoided getting it cut until after his first birthday...four days ago. Like a magician, Heather was able to cut our buddy's hair without him even really noticing. He was laughing, curios, smiling, and in the end totally looking like a rock star. She did an amazing job. We highly recommend her services for anyone who is also nervous about that first hair cut. We will certainly be back.

    Taryn is a magical unicorn with scissors who is capable of operating with extreme precision. Her surgery-like procedures she will conduct on your hair will leave you feeling prettier than when you arrived. When I'm depressed, lost, and forgotten; I visit her to absorb her positivity and get a hair cut out of it too!

    I would highly recommend Tayrn to everyone!! First, she is ready for you at the start of your appointment unlike other places. Her work is quality and the customer service she provided from start to finish was more than expected. She was very friendly with my daughter and went the extra mile to make our experience wonderful. The prices were very reasonable and I was in and out before I knew it.

    Taryn is amazing! Not only does she do a fantastic job of cutting and styling hair, but she makes it a comfortable and fun experience every time. She has a great personality and we always have the best conversations! My only regret is that she can't be my everyday personal stylist!

    Heather is so talented! She has a great way with the kids, she does awesome trendy hair cuts for the boys in our family, husband and two boys, and her place is just cozy and comfortable to be in. Not yet another chore but a fun visit with like an old friend. We've been going here for two years now and we're never disappointed. Highly recommend!
