Ken Walker

Chandler, AZ

"I have been doing hair for 30 years and the last 8 I have been working at Lmage studios.  They are by far the best salons I have ever worked at!! The buildings are beautiful. I love the feeling of total freedom to run my own business and come and go as I please.  The owners are amazing!
If I was ever to move my business again I would find another Lmage Studios.  As far as I'm concerned they stand alone at the top!!"
