What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? I was once donating my time for a charity event. The event was to help women with breast cancer. As I finished my guest's hair, I noticed that she was crying. She said that she never thought that she would feel pretty again until that day. We hugged and cried together. THAT was the best feedback.

Serenity Salon not only respects its clients, but also the earth.

These products accompany stylists' skills during signature cuts, styles, conditionings, and shampoos that seal in moisture and block out humidity, which can cause mold and unruly flyaways. To complement styling services, the salon offers color services, Babe hair extensions, and Brazilian keratin treatments.
