Definitely worth the money! I would much rather spend my money on someone who actually know what they are doing. I have gone to alot of salons in the past, and I am never 100% satisfied when I walk out. I got a full highlight, and a haircut and walked out feeling amazing!! I got compliments all the time on how great my haircut and color looked even weeks after I had gone in! Marilyn actually listened to what I want, explained all the benefits/disadvantages and actually took the time to show me how to style my hair when I go home. I was greeted nicely when I walked in, offered a soda, got a relaxing scalp massage.. All the employees were very friendly and didn't feel like I was in a catty atmosphere.
