Samantha was a dream to work with for my wedding. She created a calm, happy, efficient environment for the morning of the wedding And the hair was simply gorgeous. All of the bridal party looked absolutely beautiful and she was so versatile and accommodating for each person's hair style preferences. I got compliments all night long about how natural and beautiful I looked. I couldn't be happier and would highly recommend.​

WOW! I had been thru a disaster trial with another salon and I was starting to worry!  Worry no more as soon as I found Samantha.  Her calm, sweet personality combined with amazing skills made my trial a pleasure and gave me confidence that my wedding hair would be perfect!

The style she helped me choose (which was nothing like I thought I wanted) was amazing. Samantha made me feel like a movie star!

​Samantha is a joy. She has a calm presence and clearly loves her work. At the trial she showed me several options and took photos so that I could consider my options. The day of the wedding she arrived at the venue on time and did a beautiful job. My hair looked elegant and natural all at once. She's really fantastic and I happily recommend her to anyone.

​​Samantha was perfection from the trial to the day of my wedding. She styled my Mom's hair, my sister's hair and my hair. We all had different styles and they all looked amazing! She knew exactly what I wanted. It was like she read my mind. My hair is very thick and heavy, but somehow it stayed styled from the ceremony to the last dance (and we did a lot of dancing). She is not just a talented hair stylist, she's also a total sweetheart. Her relaxed attitude and big smile were just what a bride to be needs on the morning of the wedding. I would go back to her in heartbeat!
