Professional Progressive Salon

I have been coming here for 8 years and Gina has created short hair, long hair, blond hair, dark hair, up dos, wedding do's.. She and her team are versatile and proficient. I've never been kept waiting , even when they are short staffed. Im particularly impressed by the way Gina mentors her young team. They are always practising things in the back ground, or talking about competitions they are going to enter ( and often win!) Gina herself has magic scissors, not all hairdressers are 'good' at cutting hair! I can't recommend highly enough
