Gift cards are easy as long as you get the correct store name for the gift card from her. This is important because you cannot refund gift cards. I didn't know about that, did you?

She started to cry saying this is the last I'll be seeing of her at the salon. I felt bad for her, and worried a little about what she might do to my hair. Not sure if I have ever gotten a haircut from a crying hairstylist, so I continued to listen in. She said that she was hated at that salon by one very mean co-harstylist, w
