I am proud to welcome you to The Loft Hair Studio. It had always been a dream of mine to own my own business and now, I’m excited to say, it has become a reality. I’ve been in the beauty industry for over 10 years and I’ve gathered experience working in several well known salons in the area. I’ve taken a pieces of knowledge and expertise from each of these places and rolled it into what I consider my ideal salon solution. My goal was to create a relaxing yet modern salon space where my clients would feel at home. I wanted to offer top of line products and services at competitive prices while building a team of experienced and professional staff members that could deliver extreme customer service. Coupling that with innovative salon technology to enhance your salon experience and an environment built to cater to your pampering whim. My goal here at The Loft Hair Studio is to have you enjoying your time spent here and leave you wanting to come back for more.

“I never thought Acupuncture would or could help me, I am a sceptic at heart. I also did not realize how bad my depression and anxiety was & thought it was just a part of me that I had to struggle with. Dr. D helped me attain a new level of mental health and strength that I have never experienced before. She constantly brought me out of my negative state of mind and has helped me to live a much fuller life. I believe she is blessed with the gift of healing.”


“When I became a weekly patient of Dr. D’s she informed me that since my back issues were a chronic problem for over 20yrs. that I shouldn’t expect instant results. She was right, it took about 2 months of weekly visits before I felt results that lasted. I am now able to do things that I have not been able to do for years. Acupuncture with Dr. D has been the healthiest thing I have ever done for myself, she has given me an active life back!”
