Favorite Products and Why:
- Redken Guts - Best rootlifter of ALL time! Has a nice dry finish and gives you volume right where you need it!
- Sexy Hair Soy Renewal - Because it adds smoothness and shine and moisturizes the hair without leaving it greasy. Much better than a silicone-based serum.
"My friend Kris V. referred me to Ally. I always liked her hair but was reluctant to leave the girl who had been styling my hair for the past 3 years. I decided to make the change and had Ally cut and highlight my hair and it looks great! I am very happy with the outcome! I would happily refer anyone to her and your salon."

"The Brazilian Gloss product is the best thing I have ever done to my hair. My hair has never looked so healthy and shiny. I no longer have to deal with the frizzy hair. The time it takes to fix my hair in the morning has decreased significantly. If there are any other clients that are considering having the Brazilian Gloss treatment, I cannot recommend it more. Thank you Ally for suggesting it for me. I cannot thank you enough! I love my hair now!”

"When I first went to Ally I had long boring hair that I did not know what to do with. She suggested the perfect cut and color for me. I left my first appointment loving my hair! I have had so many compliments on my hair now. I am not used to that! I would recommend Ally to anyone and I do!! I brought my 12 year old daughter to her the next day and now she always says, "I just want my hair to look like when Ally does it!" Thanks Ally we love getting our hair done now!"
