I spoke with the ownner via FB a few days before making the appointment. I sent her a picture of how I wanted the ends curled, the length, as well as the length and was quoted $180. I get to the shop and am immediately talked down to because my hair is natural (it was blown out and of course in an afro because of that). I can't at least six times that I was told that my hair was nappy from the moment I walked in and throughout me getting my hair done. Now, I don't really care about what they had to say about my hair because I know that at only 4inches the thickness is a bit intimidating. Anyway, I talk to the receptionist and she acts as if she doesn't understand how I came up with $180 because she claims that they are never that price. Asked her to pull up the FB conversation, which she does, and then she says "No, that's wrong. She didn't mean that..." Really? So I approach the owner (recognized her from FB) and asked her why the price jumped so high when she promised me it would only be $180. Then she says there was a special going on that took $20 off the $200 price...which didn't make sense. They were telling me to pay $220, but if the normal price is $200 and $20 off of that is $180...where is $220 coming from? So I said alright, I would pay $220 BUT the twist now have to be JUST like the picture I showed including the very small size (I was looking to get a medium size twist) and they agreed. That problem was out the way. Then came the girl was a blow dryer telling me to straighten my hair -_- I just sat there until finally another girl came up and told me they hated the hair I had because it was the cheap version of what I should have bought, which they convienently had for sale at $10 a bag... I said, no thanks, already bought hair so let's get started. The girl who couldn't stop singing started and after awhile an older lady came in and that's when I first started becoming frustrated. Up until her arrival none of the other things bothered me. I wasn't fazed. But then this rude behind woman comes in and starts loud talking about my choice of hair and how she hates the colors I chose (It was nothing but 1B's and 2's -_- ). Just clowning for no reason. Then she comes to me and starts talking about my hair AND the synthetic hair...I was bout done. She was working all the nerves I have. Throughout the entire time she was talking down on my hair, saying stuff like "It's so nappy, you should perm it." and "Next time, don't come without straight hair." Mind you, the receptionist reminded her twice that most natural hair gets big when blown out unless you flat iron...but I guess she ain't care about that. She would come and go, which was fine by me because the other girl (the singer) was pretty nice and a very fast braider. Basically, that one woman made the whole trip irritating. I actually LOVED my twists and would love to have them touch them up, but I do NOT want that woman near me. They need to tell her that having a stank attitude is not the way to keep people coming back.

After reading these reviews I am very shocked! I had a great experience with this shop on hwy6. They talked to me when I was sitting in my car lol. My son locked my keys in my car while I was getting my hair braided, and the manager went across the street in her car and got a clothes hanger to help me get them out. If that's not going above and beyond the call of duty then I don't know what is! She even bought a door thingy to help me. So I love this shop. Maybe yall should travel to hwy 6 next time cause they put me right in the chair n braided mine and my daughter's hair. As for the woman downing African American sister's, you should be ashamed! We make it the best way we know how. There are some lazy AfricAN's on assistance too. Your review alone Almost did make me not want to go there and get my hair braided. I don't believe that is an actual person that works there though, because I don't think they would be that dumb to post smthg bad mouthing their customer's. Never the less, I'm going to get mine and my baby's hair braided there again. I had not just a good experience, but a GREAT one! I am getting my degree now! Thanks
I can’t believe that you’re leaving Shea and I. Wow it’s been over 3 years that you been doing our hair. If Shea and I could come to Texas every two weeks and get our hair done by you, TRUST me, we would. How am I going to find a stylist that would get us in and out (2 hours tops), at the same time that making sure our hair is health, teaches the do's and don’ts of our hair and most of all being completely satisfied with our styles. It’s going to be truly, truly, truly hard to do. (Crying just thinking about this!) Faye thank you for being not only a great hair stylist but also a friend, teacher, and listener. Faye you are truly going to be missed in Orlando. Only if the ladies of Humble Texas know what JEWEL they were getting in a professional hair stylist that believes in keeping your hair looking good and healthy. Thank you so much. May God Bless you and your family in this move. BUT should you EVERY come back to the Orlando Area to visit please call me! I’ll be first in line for a hairdo. Luv Ya!!!!!
