My experience with Ella was amazing. Her knowledge, friendly vibe and welcoming spirit, allowed me to relax and feel confident in transitioning from long to short hair. She took the time to ensure my new look was easy to take care of and perfect for me. I would highly recommend her services and that of the Guide team to anyone! Thanks for a great day!
