"Thank You for all your help and working with me. I really do appreciate your great customer service, with a smile always! I believe we are on track; I really do like the new base color! I hope it doesn’t fade much before my next appointment, it is perfect right now! Thank you again for taking so much time with me. Oh and the hair cut is great too!"

"Hi Brittani, I just wanted to say thank you so so so much for doing my hair last Saturday! The blonde color is bright just like I wanted it and I have gotten quite a few compliments on how good it looks! Thanks again! See you in 6 weeks or so!"

"Hey Brittani! I wanted to let you know I have recieved tons of compliments on my hair today from coworkers and clients at the clinic I work at. Thank you so much! I absolutely love your new salon location. It's very professional while still being fun and relaxing. Before going to Elle Marie I bounced from salon to salon because I never found the right place. Now, I won't go anywhere else. I have already referred you to my friends and coworkers and I never hesitate to pass out your business card. Thanks again for the new hair!! ;)

"I washed my hair this morning and let it air dry (with some product). It is almost dry now, and is very soft with no frizz and more relaxed curl. Feels really good!! Everyone loved my straight hair yesterday, and even though I had it in a pony tail most of the weekend didn’t even really have a kink in it when I finished it with a flat iron yesterday. So far so good!!!"

"I wanted to let you know that I have seen less breakage and less hair in the sink and shower since we switched to the Chi method. I think it's great as I don't have that much hair anyway and to lose any of it sucks. I really love the way my hair looks."

"Hey - I have to give Brittney Kudos for an awesome foil and cut today. You should know also that she is an Amazing Artist of Customer Service. Every second someone new walked in the door, she excused her self to ensure that they were taken care of. She was awesome and would have made you proud. You guys run an amazing salon and I love that place more everytime I am there. Nice work Lorry! It is really first class there. Thanks again for your Elle's Angels aways making it a GREAT hair day! Cheers!"

"Everyone loved the way you did my hair. The fam, the boy, the friends, schoolmates and even one of my really good friends at school was behind me, and he didn't even recognize me at first. It was really funny. Thank you so much, you are definitely my new favorite!"

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for making my hair look so good. You have an amazing talent. My fiance' said he wants you to be the one who does my hair for our wedding. I will recommend you to everyone I know."
