Think that lather is the only choice for shampoo?

Little known fact that detergents in shampoo aren’t always necessary to clean your hair.  In fact, oils can be some of the best ways to purify and break down dirt and oils.  So we now have some lather-free shampoo options for you!  Keep in mind that these new products take a bit of getting used to and a little bit of training, but once you start you will love the results!  They give you shiny and luscious locks and are perfect for anyone who has fragile, curly or dry hair.  Come in and ask any of the team members about the Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Cleansing Milk OR the L’oreal Professional Cleansing Conditioners!!

We have changed our hours, so you can now find the entire team working Wednesday’s through Sundays!!  We are closed Mondays and Tuesdays.  You can find us Wednesday and Thursdays 10-6, Friday 10-8, Saturday 10-6 and Sunday 11-7.
