Dear valued clients,
I’ve been back in Berkshire County for over the past 10 years servicing you. Words can’t express enough of my gratitude to those who have supported me throughout my educational journey as well as followed me from other salons. You all have allowed me to grow and become great at what I do.
My goal is to own and operate my own salon and day spa. I am in the process of doing just that. Every single one of you has helped me achieve this goal through your support. Sadly, none of you will get to share this success with me because I am opening in Martinsburg, WV. This location is close to my brother and his family.
Hair Express & Day Spa is my home. I started there in 2002, then ventured out, and came back in 2010. It’s where my heart is. It would mean a lot to me for you to continue to go there for your services. I have selected a stylist that I personally feel will achieve the best satisfaction for you as I have. The receptionist has a list with your name and your referred stylist. Give a call and she will book you accordingly.
I am very excited for my next journey. Feel free to keep in touch and reach out to me with any questions or concerns. I leave you in the hands of my Hair Express family and feel confident they will take good care of you. You all have been wonderful to me and I will always remember that. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be creative doing what I love. I’m forever grateful….
