There are so many lovely things I could say about Vanessa as a person and as a stylist but to not take up so much time I will start with how not only is she a good person to know but she is also an extremely talented and gifted stylist! She knows her craft very well and seeks to make sure her clients get the best look and services that they need from her as their Master Stylist! I have received countless compliments and very favorable remarks on my hair every time I get it done, due to Vanessa's expertise. My guy friend, (sweetie), even has taken pictures of my hair and new look because he was so enamored and impressed with my look! Thank you, Vanessa, for being a connoisseur in your area of style! May God continue to bless you and yours!!! Kindly, Stephanie C.
Vanessa is very passionate about hair and hair care which makes a huge impact in the services she provides. She is very detail oriented and gives you what you want, but she also provides excellent hair care suggestions. I enjoy the privacy and intimate setting the loft provides, and especially the promptness of being serviced. My hair looks beautiful at each visit, I appreciate the convenience and excellent client services she provides! Thank you Vanessa !
Vanessa did a great job on my hair. It was my first time going to her and I had a specific style I wanted for vacation and she nailed it. Her products were good they left my hair feeling clean and luxurious. I will definitely be returning soon. Thanks so much!
It's very rare these days to find someone who has the great qualities that Vanessa has without breaking the bank. She's knowledgeable, trustworthy, and passionate about her work. After my first visit my hair was brought back to life and I left with tips on how to keep it healthy, and a warm heart from great conversation. Vanessa has been my hairdresser for over a year and I plan to continue to use her services for many more. You're the best!
