MATT WHITBY

Objective

    I cater to a diverse clientele specializing in an array of services. From the latest styles for the business professional to trendy cuts for divas of all ages, it doesn’t matter, it can be achieved. My success comes from an ambitious work ethic and the desire to please my clients. It is my mission to give impeccable hair care and beauty services that not only nourish the hair but also the mind and spirit. I want my customers to feel pampered and to know that they are special individuals, making them want to come back again and again. I sincerely enjoy what I do and it reflects by the smiles of my clients and the gratefulness that they show.  A  high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals. I strive to maintain the integrity of strong, healthy hair, therefore I only use all professional products that provide excellent hydration and moisture throughout an entire product line. 

Although I am a Independent Owner, I believe in being a team player, which results into a Great Leader! 

I love to network and would appreciate the opportunity to share and broaden my horizons in other areas than which I reside.
