What’s the best tip for someone visiting your area?

Try as many local dishes as you can while you’re here. Each ethnicity here has its own specialties and they are all awesome. Bring a big stomach.

Come in with an open mind. Sometimes, depending on your hair type, we’ll give you advice and recommendations on what would work for you. Oh, and don’t come in with product in your hair, it’ll make your barbers day.
