Visited this establishment for the first time and I was impressed with the outcome of the cut. My wife and I had separate stylists who meticulously cut and styled our hair. We were very pleased with the results. Staff is friendly and professional. We will be back!

I’m never disappointed when I go to Hot Waves! Such a great environment, you’re surrounded by such lovely ladies who are always very welcoming and friendly. I’ve been going to Maria for almost my entire life, I love her as a person and a hair stylist. She always saves the day and has me feeling fabulous. Hot waves is the place to go.
