We use only top-of-the-line coloring, hair care and styling tools along with techniques and carefully selected products that promote the health and beauty of your hair while protecting the environment.
Understanding Your Vision
First and Foremost - We Listen. At Positive Image, we place the utmost importance in client consultation. Before we begin, our stylists take the time to speak thoroughly with each client about why they have come in to see us and what they would ideally like to gain from the experience. We take pride in our work and want each of our clients to feel at ease with the knowledge that when they leave Positive Image Salon, they will love the way they look.
