In following the Laws of our State, NC
Due to the Covid-19 issue, we will be closed a short time.
As always here, your health and safety are our number one priority.

Although we already take many precautions at the studio to prevent disease transmission.
And feel transmission here is unlikely. We have to follow the rules in our county.

If you have an appointment prior to that and want to reschedule, just reach out. No problem.
If you have an appointment during that time, we truly apologize. And hate this too! We will be in touch
to get you reschedule in the next most convenient time for you & if you are already scheduled you will take 
priority before new clients. 

We are more than ready to get back to work. Tough times!! 

Thank you for understanding- Nikki
