Went from shoulder length thinning hair to a pixie cut. Even before Kerry had finished I could see he was doing a great cut, I could feel my smile widening with every snip! I was absolutely over the moon with the finished cut. Couldn’t believe a haircut would make me feel so good - expensive-yes - but worth every last penny. Thank you so much Kerry.
