    "With this app, I don’t even have to open another app to import my photos from my instagram. I usually take photos of my clients after doing their hair and post them on IG. Great management app! "

    "Change your hairstyle without cutting it, stop regretting a bad decision. This nice little app allows you to try on all types of different styles without taking off a single follicle. Easy design to maneuver and plenty of hairstyles to match your taste. I wondered how it would look to have long hair, not too bad! Looks like I won't be cutting it for quite some time. "

    "Hair Salon is a great little app if you want to check out whether or not a certain style would look good on you. I don't think it really appeals to hair stylists though, as they already have a good idea of what styles look good on different face shapes, etc."

    "Such a creative tool. I like how all my contacts/clients are listed so I can followup on those who haven't booked in a while. Like a marketing tool. The day-by-day calendar is easily viewed with the color separation, so even on the small screen its completely readable on the iPad. I would like to see more on the Reports. Reports are very important for seeing your daily business, profit, etc. "

    "I really think this app is lacking is more than a few ways. First of all, the color changing feature leaves a lot to be desired because it lacks the vividness of what your hair would look like after dying it. That really takes away from the usefulness of the idea, I think. Although, if you can deal with a little less saturation and utilize your imagination a little bit, with the colors given as a guide, then it does what's expected, but nothing more."

    "I have emailed them and will edit this review if they can help me. After I bought the in app purchase it won't even open- even when I deleted and re downloaded it. Hopefully I can get it to work or get a refund for the money I spend without getting anything in return. As of yet I don't recommend it but will update"
