 "Dear Ted,
After a year of living abroad.  We have explored so many fabulous places.  Europe has so much to offer, but no European stylist or chic salon that I have visited can compare to diVa Colour Studio and talents of Ted and his colleagues.  I cant wait to see you when I get back to the midsouth, so you can fix my hair."

Love to you all, 
Brussels Belgium

"Ted, it's been three years now since you rescued me from hair disaster!  Three years since I have not had to wear a bag over my head! Ha Ha
This card is a little gesture of appreciation for all the tweaking you did to make my hair what is is now.  The last time I was in and when you finished, I looked just as good as all those women from Dallas that were there, if not better.  You are a Talent.  Keep making women beautiful." 

Thanks for all you do,

"I am from Tupelo and my hair was fried.  Ted has my color looking natural, bright and shiny again.  I travel to Memphis every 6 weeks for Ted's Midas touch."

"my hair was breaking off when I found Ted.  He saved my hair.  Now I see the master of hair color every 6 to 8 weeks."

"My hair was  like a straw patch when I started coming to Ted, now because of the tone of the color and the type he used, my hair looks great and I feel younger.  He is a habit and I have to see him every 6 weeks for the cure."

"I went to another salon for years.  Every time I had my hair weaved, I had breakage.  The hair stylist informed me that everybody that has foil highlights has some breakage.  A friend told me about this brilliant colorist named Ted at diVa.  I began going to him in June 94 and my hair has never looked better and NO BREAKAGE."

Valerie Stevens

"I went to many hair dressers, my hair is gray and they all tried to make my hair look like it was when I was young.  This dark hair they put on me made my face look shadowed and old.  In desperation I heard about Ted at diVa Colour Studio in Memphis and went to him.  I am now dark blond with beautiful creamy highlights.  My color looks like it grew out of my head, not a beauty salon.  I hav been returning to Ted every six to eight weeks since 1997."

Barbara James
Caruthersville, MO

"I live in New York City.  And after traveling around and having many hair color disasters, I now make my way to Memphis every 3 months to have the creative color genius, Ted, do my hair color.  I just Love him."

"Shannon, just a note to let you know that I receive one of two compliments a day on my hair color.  Thank you for sharing your talent and gift with me.  I truly appreciate your work."

Thank you,
Cindi McGee

"Hi Ted,
Thank you for doing any outstanding job on my hair color.  I'm glad to see the darkness go away.  I have been very pleased with the highlighting as well.  Thank you again for the shampoo you recommended."

Maria B. Welch

I just wanted you to know that I love my hair, you did such an excellent job!  Everybody at work today gave me compliments on how good the color and cut was.  Of course, I could not give you enough praise.  I am so grateful for you doing such a good job on my hair.  I can't thank you enough."

Julie simmons

"A while back I began coming to Ted.  My hair has never looked so good.  Several months back I moved to Philadelphia, Pa.  I tried several people up there and was unable to find one with Ted's touch.  It's worth every penny I spend to fly to Memphis to see Ted every 6 weeks.  Thank you for my Beautiful hair Ted." 

Ganna Magafna
Philadephia, Pa

"My hair color was terrible.  I couldn't find anyone.  I went to several hair dressers and neither could help.  A friend recommended Ted at diVa. My hair looks great!  Now I come to Memphis every 6 weeks so I can have the "Ted Touch".  I recommend Ted to everybody I know."

Vicki Melchione
Jonesboro, AR

"for years I tried to find the right hair colorist, but my hair kept getting lighter and lighter, until my hair blended in with my face.  Then I found Ted at diVa.  Now my beautiful, multitone hair enhances my skin tone and eyes.  I couldn't be happier!  I would recommend Ted to anyone." 

Valerie Calhown

"I love when I have the opportunity to visit Memphis, because I always go to diVa Colour Studio, because they have the finest selection of the best hair care products anywhere."    

Deb Binger

"I went to Ted when I lived in Memphis.  Then moved to Kansas City KS.  For years I have been looking for someone who has the expertise in coloring as Ted.  Alas I have found no one after many attempts.  Now I come up with excuses to make my way to memphis so Ted can work his miracle on my locks."
