My assigned student is awesome! She's very personable, and very skilled. I left not feeling the need to make any adjustments. I will request her on my next visit, and have already recommended her to friends who have not yet visited Regency.

Thank you,


I very much enjoyed my visit to Regency on Saturday. The student who helped me did a wonderful job my hair color and style turned out great, I was very pleased. The facial was so relaxing I fell asleep. The overall experience was very pleasant and the next time I am visiting the area I will be sure to come back.

Have a Blessed Day!


A huge "THANK YOU" to [the Regency student and instructor] for doing my hair yesterday afternoon. My hair held up all night through the wedding and the curls are still intact without the pins this morning, so I will be pulling it up for work. I love the curls!!!

Everyone said how beautiful my hair was, even in the goofy hat. 

I can not express my thanks for your help, your knowledge, your comfort and your conversation during such a stressful time. 

[To the Regency student]: I believe that you will go very far in this business, as long as you love what you do!! 

Thank you

Dear Regency,

I would like to compliment [a Regency student] on excellent service. She has applied my color twice and she does an excellent job. She listens to my concerns, answers questions, is attentive, kind, professional and is not offended when I question procedures. She is thorough and goes the extra mile to make sure I am happy with my color. I will request only her from now on until she graduates. Awesome job - she will go far.

Thank You,

Melissa L

I visited the school recentlty for color, cut and style by [a Regency student].

I am very pleased with my hair color, cut and style and the valuable assistance provided by the instructors to [the student] and me.

I purchased some products while I was there and am pleased with them also.

I will continue to support the Independence school and recommend your services to family and friends.
