I recently received chemical treatment from this salon. I received a relaxer, cut and style from Babe and she was absolutely great. I chose a style out of the Metro styles hair magazine that she had available. I was very pleased with the style that she created for me. I had narrowed it down to 2 different styles that I really liked and she created something based on what I showed her that I like best. The style she created for me is very manageable, and it compliments my face, my body build and personality. THE SALON: The salon has an urban flare with a professional’s touch of class. The colors of the salon express that the stylists have a lot of creativity and are very trendy with their creations. This is definitely an upscale salon; it's fresh, trendy, clean and very stylish. I like the atmosphere of the salon, I think because it is not surround by an array of other salons that it has a more intimate setting and feel. SERVICES: Babe's services were very professional she paid attention to what my needs were and what I wanted in a hairstyle, she listened to me, she was sincere about wanting me to have a style that I not only I would like but one that I desired and was very comfortable with. EQUIPMENT: The equipment in the salon is all twentieth century upscale, very trendy and stylish. The wash bowl where you receive your shampoo is so relaxing; the chair is comfortable and compatible for people of all sizes. I've never had such comfort in getting my hair shampooed before. The experience was totally relaxing. This is a total change from your average African American Hair Salon, this is more of a retreat from the hustle and bustle that we go through from day to day and the irritation and unsatisfactory that some have received from many other salons. It is a CUT above the REST. TIME MANAGEMENT: I think the stylist makes the most of her time and uses her time wisely. The stylist show great time management skills when dealing with her customers. I received a relaxer, cut and style and was only in the salon for 2 hours. The salon is very convenient to where I reside in Gwinnett County, it is only about a 25 minute drive from the Norcross Peachtree Corners area. WILL YOU RETURN? Yes, I will be a returning customer, before I left the salon I made an appointment for within 2 weeks. Thank you, Babe for raising the bar in the African American Beauty Salon. CharChar

I have being looking for a way to have longer hair (after loosing a lot of hair due to a bad service and stress) for quite sometime. Last time I tried 3 girls and a needle and I just waste money to have it take down the very same day because looked so horrible. I made an appointment for a consultation and after explain exacly what I was looking for Mrs. Genie told me she could deliver it. While she might be too honest and a little rough, she has a kind heart and feel happy when you are happy with the results. The technique she uses leaves some of your hair out, you have to be aware that you do have to take care of your own hair and make sure you either buy a VERY good hair someplace else or buy the hair in advance for her and make sure that it matches the lenght, texture and the color you are looking for. Be prepare to spend half or most of the day on the chair, you dont want have something done in one hour and look like you are wearing a wig... Genie iis knowledgeable and you can see the pictures on her website and on the new location of past clients that looks real good. She works by appointment only and if for some reason you can't make it I highly recommend that you let her know at least 3-4 business day in advance, as we do not like to waste time she doesnt either. I am a very picky person and she delivered what I was aiming for. You also need to have realistic expectations, while you should look for a skilled profissinal, you also have to consider that you are adding hair that is not yours and you need to treat you hair and the added hair with a lot of care. After the enhancement is done you can come back if something needs to be fixed, she is very good about it and try her best to accomodate her costumers needs.
I have never taken the time to write a review on a business before, but I had to share what a great experience I had at LA Hair. I have never had hair extensions before, but had wanted them for a very long time to enhance my brunette hair, which is fine, wavy, and frizzy in nature. I did my "google research" online for quite a while, and finally decided to visit Genie at LA Hair...I am SO GLAD I did!! She gave me exactly what I wanted - NATURAL looking extensions that look exactly like my hair, only much much better. When I went for my free consultation, I had been very impressed with how thorough she was in examining my hair, and finding the exact match of hair to use for my extensions. I also love the fact that you are the only client she works on, so you have her complete attention and privacy. As I sit here and write this review, I am in seventh heaven enjoying my new head of hair :-) They feel so comfortable on that there have been times I even forget they are in my hair! I highly recommend her to anyone considering hair enhancements - she knows so much about her profession, and shares her knowledge with you, so you come out completely educated on the process. I'm SO glad I did my research and found Genie! I plan on being a regular client of hers for a very long time!
