After the salon I was going to raised their prices 3 times in a year, and adding a "service charge" every time I walked in the door I took a chance and bought a Groupon for a haircut, foil, and blowout at Van Strand. I was so nervous to have a new person I knew nothing about do my hair, but I have 2 boys in college and was tired of feeling ripped off where I was going. Well, everything happens for a reason, Ashley immediately put me at ease, I could tell she knew her stuff :) My hair turned out amazing!! Plus, I saved $290 for the same services! Their regular prices (without the groupon) will be only $60 more. I'm so excited to have found Ashley and Van Strands!
