    I've always had extremely long hair (like near my bum long) and I've always been somewhat terrified of getting too much taken off and absolutely hating it. The Tuesday before my graduation, I scheduled a hair cut and dye with Natalie. I didn't know much about her or her salon except the reviews I read, but I needed the cut and dye along with the hairstyle and makeup for the graduation day, so I just went with her. When I got there, an immediate calm came over me. The Frank Sinatra and light blue walls definitely helped. I showed her the exact hairstyle I wanted for my graduation and I told her I wanted my haircut to work for the style: it was top priority. When the haircut and dye was over, seven inches had been taken off and my hair was significantly darker. To my surprise, I adored it. The day of graduation, my hairstyle was by far the best one there and I was told several times I looked like a movie star. Seriously, amazing hairstylist and really kind person. She is worthy of my highest recommendation.

    Today, I purchased a long white gown at Yvonne's. It was wedding style and considerably cheaper than David's Bridal and even Dillards. When I walked in, there was this smell that just consumed me. It was old fashion perfume and there was SO much of it. After a while I got used to it, but I felt the need to run outside for fresh air for about 10 minutes beforehand. The place wasn't well done. Generally shabby, but it was homey all at the same time. My attention was pretty much immediately taken away from that when I caught site of the dress selection they had. There were tons of dresses! And not just dresses. They had purses, underwear (naughty and nice), gloves, jewelry and a bit more. I felt like a kid in a candy shop. I was immediately helped and the woman was so ridiculously nice and helpful. She knew what I needed and she led me straight to the dress selection that fit my school requirements and price range. I had 5 dresses to try on. I loved the very first one I tried on. The woman suggested I try a couple more on just in case, and she zipped me up and down throughout the entire thing, which was EXTREMELY helpful. I ended up buying gloves also because surprisingly enough, they had them! I was even told some hairstyles that would go good with my dress. The entire purchase was about 300 dollars. Not half bad I'd say. This is not a place where you'll have one of a kind dresses. They seem to be stock dresses that have different price tags. So, if you're looking for that one of a kind dress, it isn't here. Maybe a three of a kind dress or something around there. But I was really happy with the turnout. I would strongly suggest checking it out at the very least for ANY occasion that would require a dress.
