What Our Raving Fans Say

August was the busiest and best month we’ve ever had in our 12-year career. So proud and so thankful to have been a part of it all. A huge heartfelt thank you to your team because we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for all of you!  Creative designers/web team Edwin, Fumi, Gretchen  –  thank you to everyone who has been a part of our adventure.

We originally approached Defy Digital (at the last minute of course) to develop a website before the launch of our brand new salon. Since then, they have got us ranking on the 1st place on Google, allowing us to dominate the market. Not an easy task considering there are four other salons in the 3 block radius. Gretchen and her team provides us with refreshing and practical ideas regularly and allows us to keep our competitions on their feet.

Fumi was a tremendous asset while developing our website and creating the overall plan and strategy. He put us on the right path and has made a major impact on our revenues… Thanks Fumi!
