Customer Reviews

Donald and everyone at Positive Image are wonderful. I always walk out looking and feeling 10 times better than when I walked in. The entire experience is fantastic: from the greetings when you arrive, making sure to explore and talk through what you're looking for, the actual cut, color, shampoo, and styling processes, to wishing you well on your way out the door. Positive Image Salon is top notch.
