“Contrast Hair and Makeup was fantastic!! Rachel is such a sweet person, but more importantly.. she really knows hair! I'm not a very picky person and I like to leave some details up to the hair stylist. She asked me how I want my highlights and I told her that I didn't want them too blonde and very thin and subtle. She did a wonderful job on the highlights and with my new bangs too. I would definitely recommend Contrast Hair & Makeup.”
