At first Raven provided quality service with a smile and brought a sense of calmness to a day that could have been chaotic. Instead we all felt relaxed and beautiful with the work of her hands. Thanks for making our special day so great.Jun 11, 2018Verified

Amanda, is a lovely person with a great personality! I felt like I had known her forever. We talked my hair, that it was fine, and the fact that I was in a big rut with having pretty much the same hair style for ever . I wanted something that when my friends saw me would go WOW! She spent time with me looking through magazines and pictures on her lap top. I liked a few but had always been told my hair was to fine to wear that way but Amanda told I could. As I watched my hair(what little I had) fall to the floor. She was going to turn me into this Wild, Sassy or professional looking woman. Could she really do this? I was so scared but whiling to give it a shot. I needed some spunk back into my life. After the cut came some white looking highlights. Very few because there was little hair. Then came the the drying...and then she educated me on how to style it and some ideas on what to use. She went over everything with me showing me how each product worked. Then the finally me! WOW, I didn't even recognize myself. Was that really me. The style was exciting and fun to play with. Wearing it so many different ways and loving them all instead of that same boring look. Amanda, thank you for giving me that pick me up that we all sometimes need in our lives! I love it!Sep 27, 2017Verified

It was wonderful meeting you and starting your next hair journey! See you soon!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing was set to be in the range of all the other local stylists in the area when I moved here earlier this year. They are set because of my hours of training and my accomplishments. I also book up quite quickly allowing me to maintain my business without dropping my prices too low to make a profit. I am willing to negotiate cost during slower months such as January, March and other unpopular months if need be.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to learn as much as I can through text or social media so I am prepared when we meet for the first time. usually first time meetings are for a trial run but I can meet just to chat as well. I then go over the timeline and make sure that we have plenty of time on your big day!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I finished beauty school at 18 years old and continued on with The Charles Penzone Family of Salons in Columbus, Ohio. With their help I traveled all over the world taking continuing education hours and also educating groups of people myself. I have worked behind the scenes for Columbus Fashion Week and with many local bridal shows. my work has been featured in Columbus Brode Magazine as well as the Home page of Brides.com
