I love everything about Salty Waves Salon. Great customer service and great hair, and nails professionals. Even though I go to Tonya Carter regularly, she always takes time to ask what I want done to my hair, what worked last time, what may not have, do I want another style? She listens, then uses her professional talents to make me feel and look special!!!
