    once again...

    once again ms. Doreen works her magic! as usual, the whirl of events and conversation was like a barrel ride over the falls but I emerged safe and sound and pleased once again to have been in her charge and company. cut terrif and news update long overdue. great way to cap the week. and with my unruly locks shorn, I look like a million bucks. a bald million bucks but a million bucks, nonetheless. looking forward to the next sit in her chair.

    help for baby fine hair

    It's hard to give volume to baby fine hair, but Doreen managed to make mine 'bloom' & shine :-) Good cut and lots of knowledgeable advise about handling delicate hair. Thank you Doreen for listening and directing me to some good hair choices. She is thoughtful and engaged in the process.

    More length

    This time, we went with a little bit more length on top ... I like it so far and will see how it goes as it grows out !!!! Doreen has never missed yet and I don't expect anything but the best this time as well !!!

    FANTASTIC

    Went in for a "tune up" and came out looking absolutely gorgeous!!!! Doreen is a genius with a pair of scissors. It took her only a few minutes to clean up my hair style and get me ready for my vacation. I just love Doreen

    Amazing!

    "Your hair is AMAZING! Can you tell me who does it?" (a recent comment by someone who did not know me, who stopped me as I was walking by). This is not the first time this has happened to me since I have been going to Doreen or, before that, to her mother. My hair is not amazing; it is what Doreen does with it! I keep her cards in my purse for this purpose. Doreen is a master artist, providing an individualized and personal experience to all her clients. I truly look forward to my visits!

    Love my cut!

    Doreen does wonders with my myriad cowlicks and bone-straight hair to give it body, texture, and an easy to keep look.

    I have MORE teal highlights now!!

    I absolutely LOVE having teal highlights! This is the 3rd time we have done them & Doreen just keeps making them better! I am extremely pleased & love feeling more creative. I get a ton of compliments too. Teal is a very prominent color in my pet portrait paintings so it feels very natural to me when I look in the mirror now. Try some color next time - you'll love it!

  • 5

    Great "peek-a-boo" color of TEAL!

    I wanted some color highlights in my hair for an artshow I was participating in - to show my artsy side more! Well .... the teal color highlights will be with me for a while because I LOVE them! Just got them redone last week! Doreen helped accomplish my goal! Love her!

    great experience

    Sometimes getting a haircut that you want to lay just right without layering is more difficult to find that one might expect. Doreen was able to do just that. She was very knowledgeable about hair as well as sensitive to what kind of hair cut I wanted and respected that. That has not been always easy to come by as well. I trust her with my hair and will be a return customer.

    surprise halloween special

    whoa! not only a great haircut but also a much needed conversation with my stylist which got a much needed load off my spiritual shoulders. then came the smashing preview of a Halloween costume by a salon visitor. yikes! what a bulls eye once again at the fab hair appointment with the Doll of all Dolls. I don't think this spin in the chair will be topped in any way but I will continue to call on Doreen again cause you never know exactly what's gonna happen when you enter her world. rock on lady.

    A Real Gem!

    I just had my first appointment with Doreen McCarthy.She set aside a long time to get to know my preferences, ideas & goals for my hair. We discussed many things and sort of ‘got to know’ each other. It was a positive experience, as she took the ideas I wanted and visually interpreted them. She’s given my hairstyle more structure & some needed advice on caring for my delicate hair. I value her opinion and cutting techniques which I can see she has honed over a long career. She is a treasure!

  • 5

    Always the best.......

    I got another 'close crop' haircut by Doreen - it's always a pleasure to get a buzz-cut that looks as good as as it does, with 'limited' hair - Always the bomb with Doreen -

  • 5

    Another great haircut

    I got another great haircut from Doreen. It's nice to be one day beyond a haircut and be really happy with the haircut.

    Best colorist and stylist in RVA

    Cut and color with Doreen yesterday. Walked out with wonderful color and a cute, sassy, short style. Perfect for summer!

  • 5

    What a lovely experience!

    After chemo, I'm glad to have any hair at all, but it's hasn't been very attractive coming back in. Doreen knew exactly what to do and gave me a great cut. I'm more confident about my hair now than since last year before I lost it all! (She really knows how to clean up eyebrows, too.) I'll go back very soon.

  • 5

    The one and only...

    lady that I let cut my hair for the last fifteen years of my life. This is the perfect sassy summer cut. It's the best yet!

  • 5

    the best

    Doreen has been my dear friend and has cut my hair for 28 years. I now have an awesome little 17 month old curly haired boy. I wouldn't have taken him anywhere else. Just when I thought he couldn't get any cuter.... I say Thank you D! Murphy says, "Thanks Reenie!"

  • 5

    Always a great haircut

    I never have to worry about a bad haircut with Doreen. She always gives me a great haircut. After Doreen has cut my hair, I can only say, "Another great haircut!"

  • 5

    Doreen is the BEST

    Always on time, proficient, personable, a hipster and makes me crazy go nuts for what hair I have left. Check her out, you will not be disappointed. Bob Windsor

    Best color ever!

    I have been seeing Doreen for over 25 years and have always had the best color but I think she topped herself again yesterday! I love it!

    Always a Pleasure to sit in Doreen's Chair

    Doreen has been cutting my hair since I actually had a hair. Now she keeps me looking sharp. She always makes getting my hair cut a relaxing event where I leave feeling better than when I arrived

  • 5

    She get it...

    I have a very specific technique that I like used when cutting my hair to make it look right and she nails it every time.

  • 5

    Brazilian blow out

    fantastic! I have very thick hair. It took a lot of time for Doreen to apply the product and flat iron my many layers. Doreen is a champ! I have hair that most stylists avoid. Getting rid of all my wavy, frizzy hair is life changing! I love it.

  • 5

    # 2 guard.....

    Taking the plunge, Doreen applied the #2 guard for a June haircut.... for those that don't get 'buzz-cuts', that about a 2-3 beard lenght on your head... again, with the precision Doreen has, it works on my minimal hair-length... always a work of art .. SPK

    AMAZED

    Doreen styled my hair for the first time on 05/21/15. When she asked what she could do for me I replied "use your genius. Make a miracle happen " She did in fact do that! I've never been to a stylist that was so attentive to details. I'll return to her the next time I need a cut. She also colored my eyebrows--never had that done before. They look great and really show off my eyes. Doreen, I"ll be back... .

    Awesome stylist and wonderful person!

    There are stylists and then there are the pro stylists. Doreen by far is a PRO! I love my cut as it grows out nicely and the best color I have had. Her passion for perfection is obvious. Her soul shines too as she is a wonderful and exciting person! I'm so glad I asked one of her customers who they went to!!!!!

    Hitting it out of the park!

    After listening carefully to my concerns that I could not style my hair the way she does and it never looks like I want to (it's flat! it's lifeless! it's boring), Doreen gave me a whole new look. And I could not LOVE IT more! Over two weeks later, I am still getting compliments. People stop in their tracks.They stare at me in eye popping amazement. Exclamations! "You look amazing!" "I love your new haircut!" "That haircut is so flattering!" All I can say is THANK YOU...you did it again Doreen!

    Best in the Biz! Doreen is a miracle worker

    I just got back from traveling across the country for nine months. Before leaving I saw Doreen and she did my hair so it looked great for 6 months with minimal effort from me. Whenever I had to go to another hairdresser, no one was quite up to Doreen's standards. I was so excited to book my appointment with her when I got back to RVA and now my hair is looking fabulous again!!! Thanks so much, Doreen! My hair is now soft, easy to manage and the cut will last a long time! WHOO HOO!!!

  • 5

    Great Cut/Color

    Doreen took so much time in cutting my hair as she needed to get to know how my hair was...texture, whether I had any waves, whether it was thin or thick all over or in certain places and just the feel of my hair once we talked about the cut. I liked the fact that she took time with the cut and then after the color went back and touched up some places that she thought needed a little more cut off. The color was fantastic. I would highly recommend her to anyone. I will continue to go to her.

  • 5

    Never disappointed

    I've seen plenty of stylists over the years who were fine, but my hair always turned out just ok. When Doreen cuts my hair I always love it. I've been seeing her for several years now and will never switch again.

  • 5

    my hair thanks me

    Bad service

    I went for an 1:15 appointment and was not not even noticed that I was waiting. After 10 minutes I left and will not go back. I know this was only for eyebrow wax but still.

  • 5

    Renewed

    When I arrived at Doreen's I felt really punk: had a terrible head cold. She turned down the lights, played soft music and washed my hair. I really started to feel better and certainly relaxed. She cut, dried and styled my hair and let me tell you: I WAS A NEW WOMAN!!!! Completely forgot about my head cold and just enjoyed the rest of my day. Doreen performed a miracle for me!!!!!!

  • 5

    Always the best....

    Doreen has always managed to create a sense of 'having hair' when one is thinner .. It takes a special skill to be able to do that as the years go by -

  • 5

    wonderful

    holy tuna tacos

    AWESOME

    Doreen's Mom did my hair for 40 years and she was awesome. Doreen is just as awesome. My hair looks super great and is easy for me to manage. I especially like that I can come in for a "tune up" just before my vacation. Cannot say enough good things about Doreen. Location is wonderful with lots of parking available and shopping, lunch, etc., in the neighborhood. Doreen's shop is just the right size and very personable, as is she.

    The apple does not fall far from the tree!

    I have been blessed to have my hair styled by Doreen and her mom. Both were the first true "Master" Stylist experience I've had in Richmond. You come in and Doreen watches you, talks to you and evaluates where you are and what would be best for you. I leave feeling pampered and really happy with my cuts. I have decided that this will be my splurge on myself, because I'm worth it and feeling good about myself on a daily bases is a good investment. Thanks Doreen!

  • 5

    Happy client

    My favorite stylest, of many years, retired recently & the nightmare for "bad hair" days started. DoreenRva ended that nightmare & has been able to do the natural looking color & style that I wanted! Doreens mom was my stylest & she passed her talent on! I am blessed & a happy client! ★♥★

  • 5

    Fabulous

    Doreen is just fab!!!! Been to her twice and I am a covert for life. My colleagues at work all said how good my hair looked and I agree completely. Doreen has magic in her fingers for sure!!

  • 5

    WOW, you look FABULOUS!

    If that's how you want to feel about yourself AND what you want people to say to you when they see you, make sure it's Doreen who does your hair! Each time I see her, I always feel like she can't possibly top the fantastic color and style she gave me the last time, but each time she manages to do just that! And she always makes me feel so happy and special. She's got magic in those fingertips! If you want to sparkle this holiday season, make your appointment with her NOW!

  • 5

    Another great cut

    Another great cut!! All set for the holidays. Doreen knows hair, listens to what you want your hair to look like, and has great, good-smelling products.

    Great Job!

    This was my first time to Doreen. She did a great job and I was very pleased and grateful for her skill. Plus it was fun.

  • 5

    As always...

    As always... a remarkable job with the few hair(s) I have left - always fun, professional and I STILL get lots of compliments on my "Matt Lauer" look -

  • 5

    Big cheese

    The only downside to this haircut is all I hear is "oh my god, who cuts your hair"? I can't get nothing done.

  • 5

    Another great haircut

    Loving my new winterized haircut. A great job as always. I like how my highlights stand out more now!

  • 5

    best cut & color

    Once again, Doreen got it right. Not just right....fabulous! I've been her clent for a lot of years now, and she changes my hair color and cut up to suit my whims often. Even when I don't know what I want, somehow she does...and my hair isn't easy! She is always looking for the best products and styles to suit my crazy curly, very fine and unruly hair and she nails it. Every time. Got to say this is my favorite haircut and color to date....but I'll probably say that again next time.

  • 5

    always good cut and pow-wow

    as always very satisfied with cut and the great fun and yak. you have a customer for as long as i have one hair on my head. this means i might be checking out before either of us wants but so mother nature dictates. always recommending your expertise to those not in the know.. .

    Doreen never ceases to amaze me with the transformation she works with my hair every time. Her dedication to education and using the highest quality products to achieve such success is just that, amazing! Thank you for choosing to be the best and sharing your time and talent with me.

    poka dots and chops

    Doreen is an amazing stylist. Her eye, creativity, knowledge and ability guarantees a perfect result. Her engaging and witty conversation enhances the time you are with her and accentuates the experience!

  • 5

    Always the bomb...

    Doreen always manages to make the 'most with the least' - as I get thinner and thinner, she manages to 'max out' what I have left.. that's just ONE of the many reason I keep all my appointments.... :)

    Saturday Afternoon with Dorren

    I watched Doreen cut and style a young graduate student’s hair, (male), and I was amazed at the cut, (really edgy), and how much the young man appeared to enjoy their conversation and his hair cut. I was next, ready for my color and cut! Later, I left the salon feeling just like the young grad student…I enjoyed the conversation and my hair looked…well, really edgy, for an older woman! Doreen, you have managed to bridge the generation gap! Master hair stylist and great personality!

  • 5

    best...haircut...ever!

    If you haven't gotten a haircut by Doreen, you are missing out. It's more than a cut/color. It's an experience, and a colorful and memorable one. Sounds silly but this should be on your bucket list for sure! Seriously awesome cut, color, and conversation. Love it, love her!!!

  • 5

    FINALLY! A stylist for us Boomers!

    Finally I have found a stylist who "gets" a 60 year old woman who is dealing with all of the "stuff" that comes naturally with age, but who still wants to have a stylish, trendy, color and cut. Doreen is not only a very talented stylist and colorist, but she is also a caring, giving person. She will not let you leave her salon unless you are totally happy! I look forward to many more visits with Doreen working her magic!

  • 5

    Best Hair Artist Ever!!

    Doreen has been doing my hair for almost 3 years, and it has never looked better! She's taken me from a dark brunette to platinum blonde with pink and purple then back to brunette! I constantly get compliments on my hair cut whenever I go out and about. I love sitting in her chair and getting a good shampoo!

  • 5

    Compliments

    Compliments to Doreen! She listens to you and takes the time to wash, cut, blow and style till you're happy with the results. She does not rush at all. The day she cut my hair I attended a Birthday dinner party. I had 3 people compliment me on my hair! Doreen's the best!

  • 5

    rock on

    the usual boffo cut and convo with the bossest of the Richmond hair bosses. miss D is the best and i actually look forward to haircuts these days. am very glad she's happy in her new pad but I will find her no matter where she tries to hide! I ain't got no hair to cut but I love the hour chats and love. now I've got to wait another three or four months until I'm shaggy enough to go back.

  • 5

    DOREEN ROCKS!!

    LET'S TALK "MAGIC HAIR"! Think Doreen! I am a "mature" lady who gets stopped in the street by strangers who ask who my stylist is. It's because Doreen always gives me "magic hair"! She's my hero!

  • 5

    Feeling fabulous!

    As usual, Doreen worked her magic on my hair. And that's how I left her new salon. Feeling fabulous!

  • 5

    A perfect change

    Doreen's new location must have inspired us to try something new and I love it! As usual I vaguely explain some idea and she runs with it and makes it better than I imagined. I now have a perfect summer style and I'm already getting compliments. Doreen is the best!!

  • 5

    Cut and color

    I was ready for a change and wanted something fun for the summer. As usual, Doreen delivered! A couple hours with Doreen in her new space and I have a great new cut and a beautiful new color! THANK YOU as always, Doreen. You're the best.

  • 5

    Fabulous haircut & style

    Once again I am pleased with what Doreen was able to do with my hair. She listened what I wanted & knew exactly what to do. You know you are in good hands because she has the experience & "know-how" for whatever kind of hair you have. I walked out with a new look which I & my friends loved. See ya Sunday!!

  • 5

    all of this and more

    snappy cut comes with great convo, first class tales of derring-doo and maybe a little neck massage. can't get enough of the doll.

  • 5

    It's another Doreen McCarthy miracle!

    The Brazilian hair tx is magic in a bottle! My fine hair has body, holds a curl, isn't frizzy! A must!

  • 5

    Awesome as always

    It's always a joy to get my hair done by Doreen. She has helped my hair go from darker to lighter (not an easy feat) and since I've been going to her my hair is much more manageable! Not to mention she is great to be around and so enthusiastic as well as skilled. Thanks, Doreen!

  • 5

    10 years younger and 10 pounds lighter

    Amazing skills,everytime I leave I'm always feeling like a million bucks,if you don't get that from your stylist then you should check out Doreen.30 years of doing my hair and I've never left anything but pleased and feeling renewed.

  • 5

    Incredibly accomodating

    I scheduled an initial consultation and not only found Doreen incredibly personable and down to earth, she knew what she was doing with my hair and went ahead and gave me a much needed touch-up until my next appointment. Can't wait to go back!

  • 5

    love me some doreen!

    needed a quick trim & I got it Sat am. She gave me exactly what I was looking for. Got compliments from a group of women yesterday & one of them was another hair stylist! I get compliments about my cut & color quite often - all thanks to Doreen!

    Always the shizzzzz

    I always get the best from the best!!!!! Still a great experience, a great haircut and a great time!!! Bullseye every time with Doreen!

  • 5

    doreen is the bomb

    Doreen McCarthy is a most talented hair stylist .... I am older now and that hair I used have ... has left the building ... On my very first visit, Doreen convinced me to cut this thinning hair really short ... Well she did and I love it ... she also is a whiz at trimming them Italiano eyebrows and a goatee straight ~ very talented and pretty chatty too ... but that is a good thing

  • 5

    Finally Someone Who Gets It!

    After 3 consultations, each with a different high end salon in Richmond, Doreen gets it. She has experience and it's in her blood. I didn't get quick responses with gleaming eyes eager to do what the stylist wanted vs. what I wanted. I didn't get put off and told to try something else instead because the stylist didn't want to tackle my idea. I got a full conversation.explanations, suggestions and I was educated on how to better take care of my hair vs. just having a product sold to me.

  • 5

    Feel Like a Million

    Though only time can mend a broken heart, Miss Reenie's talent with "hairapy" can make that time easier.

  • 5

    fun fun fun

    always a rockin time. lord only knows where the conversation will go while miss d makes me look like a human.

  • 5

    Great as always....

    I had not been able to get back to RVA for several weeks ( live in NoVa now and yes, make the trip for Doreen...) and she does the magic just like always.... SPK

  • 5

    The perfect cut for autumn!

    I only let Doreen cut my hair for a reason; no one else can possibly compare to her perfection. My thin, limp hair turns into a stylish, body-filled bob every time and I get compliments on it the minute I leave the salon.

  • 5

    Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful

    If you are looking for someone to take care of you where your hair is concerned, if you are looking for a professional like your doctor, or Realtor, or mechanic...if you want someone you can trust, someone who can look at you and know what works, someone who listens and gives constructive feedback, someone who can cut hair with precision, and color like a masterful artist.. .well, then Doreen is the stylist you are looking for and her salon is where you want to be. You won't be disappointed.

  • 5

    Always Fantastic

    Some hairstylists have a gift. Doreen is one of them an can make anyone look great! The conversation is always entertaining as well.

  • 5

    rocked again

    as always a gas. i actually look forward to my infrequent haircuts. we'll talk about some pretty around the bend stuff! (she did the usual great job with very little to work with.)

  • 5

    As Always

    Doreen always does SOO Much with so little - always a great job and always good conversation and advice...

  • 5

    Fantastic!

    Doreen is a rockstar. I have known her very casually for a while and recently she decided to take on my hair as a challenge. I am growing out my pixie and she shaped it into something amazing!!!

  • 5

    Another great cut...

    ...and swell visit with Ms. Doreen, who sure knows her way around some shears! Super convenient location, too

    Family stylist

    Doreen is our official family stylist! I had fun and she fixed my hair! She kept my length because I'm trying to grow it out, but has completely cleaned it up. I had some ugly chunks in the back. My sister's hair looked so good I had to go see her! :)

    As always...

    Doreen can do so much with so little.... I really appreciate her 'magic' with my thin hair..... We are keeping the Matt Lauer look !!

    Gratitude

    Dear God, Thank you for Doreen. She is better than pop or pizza. She is better than all the other stylist put together. She is better than my therapist. Your humble servant, --Lana

    Great Cut & Style

    before I found Doreen no one could cut my hair to my liking. Doreen does it and I get lots of compliments!

    Hair Whisperer

    After several years, I recently rediscovered Doreen through my sister and am so glad we reconnected because she is still as good a stylist (and crazy a person) as she was back in the early 80's when we started going to her at Visions Gallery! She listens to MY suggestions and does not dictate to me what I want. I haven't gotten that level of respect from a stylist in a long time and it is appreciated! Never a dull moment in Doreen's chair!

    Awesome as always

    Every time I visit with Doreen I am renewed and refreshed! I used to have little to no hair (thanks to chemo!) but Doreen knows how to work with the baby fine hair and helped me to work with my "new" hair that started to grow in after those treatments. Now I get so many compliments on how great my hair looks. Thanks Reenie for helping me to feel so pretty!

    Always great

    I had to find a 'substitute' when I was out of town for several weeks - Doreen dialed RIGHT back in like she always does...

    Doreen truley is the BEST!!!!

    I'm kinda speechless, which is rare. Doreen transformed my thick,dry, frizzy hair into shiny, flowy healthy beautiful hair with amazing color and cut. Her skills are rock star status and the new product line is the best I've EVER had.

    Love my new hair

    Doreen has been cutting and coloring my hair for 15+ years and I always leave the cut and color to her with minimal direction. She never disappoints! I am always thrilled with the results.

    Metamorphosis for Suzanne

    I rock in my favorite reddish brown w/blond-ish streaks around my face ... And it is just the way I want easing into fall colors. Cant wait to get kicky again with BAD,BAD red hair with several layers of hi/low highlights. After today, I'm getting my MOJO BACK. Doyenne- you rock, baby. Love you, Suzanne Levitas-Phelps

    Flawless!

    When you go to lunch with close friends right after leaving a hair appointment and they don't notice it's been colored....THAT'S a compliment! "Your hair always looks great." Thank you Doreen for sharing your talent! You are the BEST stylist I've ever had.

    Doreen

    There is nothing more to say other than SHE IS THE BEST! Doreen knows hair and just how and what to do with any kind of hair...cuts or color. Never a dull moment when you sit in her chair! She is professional and dedicated to her business and clients.

  • 5

    Perfect As Always!

    Getting my hair cut with Doreen is less like a hair cut and more like a sculptural, artistic, relaxing experience. I usually allow her to do whatever she wants and her visions are always perfect. I'm already getting daily compliments on my new do! Can't recommend her enough :-)

    Great color and cut

    I have not had my hair colored since I turned grey over 20 years ago - I took the plunge with Doreen! She was fabulous - she was sensitive to the fact that loads of color would overwhelm me. It is expertly done to cover my white locks! Plus, the cut she gave me is one of the best I have had in a LONG time! I would send any silver foxes her way!

  • 5

    finally a great hair cut!

    This was my first visit with Doreen. She gave me a fantastic haircut. She is very smart and listened to my requests. Her obvious vast experience is impressive. She is also a lot of fun. I can not wait to go back. I am sending my husband in too. Thank you so very much Doreen.

    Fabulous!

    She was wonderful with my eight-year old son. Plus, a great haircut that both he and I could live with! We plan on taking my mom back to see her when she comes all the way from Texas! Doreen is simply fabulous!

    A real style, at last

    Doreen is the first person I've trusted to give me a real hairstyle. After 40+ years of the same long, straight hair, I have a wonderful cut that takes no more time to style than my old look--and I always leave feeling like a model!

  • 5

    Magical!

    Creative. Artistic. Gifted hair designer. That's Doreen! Inspired. Uplifted. Beautiful. Transformed. That's how you'll feel once you leave her chair! She really "sees" you and is able to bring out the very best in you. Awesome!

    Matt Lauer

    I had Doreen try the 'thin hair' look of Matt Lauer ( about my age) and it worked! She always does an amazing job with what I have - and she has LESS and LESS to work with as the years go by......

    Still Groovin....

    After 25 years of seeing Doreen she's still groovin in her art! Love your new location....love your work...love you! Thanks for being you!

    Artist!

    Doreen's the most experienced and talented stylist and colorist I've ever had. She is a visionary of hair. I recommend booking an appointment for your next hair cut and style.

    WOW! What a great haircut! and so much fun to get.

    Thanks so much Doreen for the haircut of the decade. My hair style is so fexible, I can wear business casual, rockabilly-crazy, whatever. I'll be back for sure!

    I never let anyone cut...

    my hair other than to trim it, before Doreen. After 52 years of straight auburn hair, I needed a change! What took me so long?! Friends say I look 20 years younger, yikes! Thank you Ms. D. I'm eternally greatful.

    The greatest haircut ever!

    Been coming to Doreen for 15+ years. She is always on top of her game and I always walk away with a great haircut. Will keep coming back as long as she is in the business.

    An Investment in Yourself

    Over twenty years of flawless cuts & highlights, and everytime I leave feeling invigorated. Before Doreen, I didn't know the value of a great haircut, or how a talented hair therapist can improve one's self esteem. One cut by Doreen is all it will take to convince you too. Thanks, Ms. Reenie.

    30 years and STILL a perfecet cut....

    I have had Doreen cut my hair, and my family's hair for over 30 years! Every time it's a perfect cut! I have 'thinned" over the years, and she can manage that BETTER than ANYONE ever has... Thanks D - SPK
