WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Katya has magical hands! She transformed my super straight hair into a masterpiece with layers on front to shape my face, side swooping bangs and layers in the back to cater to texture.
I didn't have any photos to reference, I just explained what I was looking for and she went above and beyond! She gave me some tips to help with creating texture on super straight hair, which I have not been patience to try. Since it's been some time since I had bangs, she gave some recommendations on how to get them in 'place'
Absolutely loved her place, super cute and clean. I plan on coming back again for another trim in the near future.
