Hi Gail! I use to work directly across the parking lot from you at Hailey Travel off Piedmont Rd. You did my hair once and converse from time to time. If I’m not mistaken, you use to drive this white Trooper… I am so proud of how much you’ve grown in the hair industry (not surprised)! You’re an amazing ⭐️ So keep shining…
BTW, I am interested in getting the micro links done and will make an appointment soon.
