I'm so sorry that you were not pleased, I am not in the business of dissatisfied clients. However, the prices clearly state that they are starting prices. Also, this was your first visit with me, with no history of your hair. Your beautiful hair does require more care than I can provide in one visit, even after a conditioning treatment. I did only trim your ends at your request, when an actual cut is necessary. I did advised you as to how to better care for your ends at home. I wish you well in the future and wish that you'd been more satisfied. You are more than welcome to allow me to properly care for your hair more consistently Thank you.
