The staff were welcoming and so accommodating. They seemed to really know what they were doing, and made me look better than I have in years. I was aiming to try salvage my hair but they really did so much more than that, it was awesome.

Nichola M.Happy Customer

I had an extraordinary experience at this salon. My friends kept referring this salon to me and boy oh boy, did I ever do the right thing coming here; came out with glamorous hair!!! Thank you l’essence for everything, I will definitely be coming back!

Pinar A. Satisfied Client

Worth every penny that I payed for my hair, I had never colored my hair before so for a change I got a balayage done and it turned out beautiful! Balayage and ombre look the best when they are done by experienced stylists because there is truly a special technique 🙂
