I found my visit to Ahead of the Curve to be pleasantly ""out of the ordinary"". After having my self esteem trampled on by a few other salons in town, I was overwhelmed not only by the array of beautiful gowns but also by the sincerity of the whole staff in trying to help me find what I wanted. The gowns there do kind of live up to the store's name and; as a result, are a little on the pricey side...but for this type of decision the old saying never rang truer...""girls, you truly get what you pay for"". Anyways, I felt I walked away with a deal considering the quality of the dress and the whole experience. I'm glad I paid them a visit.
