Meet Trinity!! Trinity is one of our amazing support staff girls, and also just so happens to be Jen’s daughter.  She is a student at Central, and has worked with us for 6 years, not counting all the time she spent in the salon with us before becoming official (holy cats time flies) 😆. She loves meeting all of the guests and getting to know them. Since she basically grew up in the salon, she just loves the environment as a whole. Her caffeine of choice is an iced americano with honey, and if you can’t find her at the salon she is probably in the gym playing volleyball☺️ Go dutch!
Sometimes after a long day on your feet, you just need to lay down and hug. 😂💗 

This group of girls never fail to work hard and have so much fun while doing it. Truly love our crew so so much!
We’re thinking the warmer weather might be here to stay…who’s ready for some brighter hair??☀️🌻
