Serving our clients since 2003
I have been going to 180 Degree Hair Studio hair studio for many years now. The warm reception and greeting you get from all the stylists is a refreshing and most enjoyable experience. I delight in getting my hair done, on a regular basis at 180 Degree by my stylist Chelsea. She keeps herself up-to-date with the latest product and styles. If I’m hesitant on what I should do with my hair, Chelsea will out shine when it comes to ideas.
The 180 Degrees Hair Studio staff truly cares about you, and treats you with respect and kindness. You get a great vibe when you walk in the salon, that the staff truly loves working there.
The stylists always listen to exactly what I want, and on those indecisive appointments when I know I want a change, but am not entirely sure how or what to do, they always have the most amazing ideas.
I always have people coming up to me and asking me where I have my hair done and I am always elated to tell them about 180 Degrees Hair Studio.
I have been visiting the salon for a number of years and have been treated tremendously not only by Amanda, but also the reception staff and the other stylists.
I have never left the salon looking, or feeling, less than fabulous!
Thank you 180 Degree Hair Studio!
