I got my hair braided 11/17/12 (Saturday). When I made the appointment I spoke with Daba and She told me my box braids would be between $165 - 185. I told her at that time I wanted them medium to small in size and long (close to bum length) When I got to the shop the woman who was going to do my hair talked to another woman in French and then told me $250! I quickly dismissed that and worked it out for a flat $200. I had an 8 am appointment and she wasted no time getting started. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND taking any other appointment than 8 am because other women had to wait quite some time. I was in the braid shop from 8 am to about 5:15. She worked very well and we only stopped for me to grab a snack next door and for me to use the restroom. The woman I had did an awesome job, she was very patient with my concerns and questions and she didnt braid overly tight. -ALTHOUGH, as for my over all experience I would rate this place a 3, because the braiders talked in French and the movies they played were in French which made us as the customers feel excluded, they gave me a different price from what I was told, the location of Salon Central (Daba's is located inside) isn't the "safest" area and I got tired of people coming in to the small, already crowded shop trying to hussle literally everything: perfumes, colognes, speakers, boxes of muffins, cake, cd's, dvd's, laundry detergent, dish washing liquid,gift sets, COLLARD GREENS -_- I MEAN EVERYTHING. But my braids came out beautifully, I loved my braider, and I've received many compliments.

I just got back to Charleston from Aabies on north tryon st. My parents stay in chalotte and I've always heard the advertising for 100.00 micro braids. This was the first time i have had my hair braided. When I got there they took me to the hair room so I could select my hair. I was shown the size of the braids and was told the price included hair. I was fine with the size because they were small but not too small but I want human hair that I could curl. After negoitiationg a few minutes we agreed on a price. I had two braiders and I was back on the highway in 3 hours!!!!! Was I was there a girl came in with a coupon she printed from their website. I inquired a back the coupon because I wanted to know if I could get one. The coupon gave a gas discount for any people coming to abies from out of town. The braider told me to go online and print one for my next visit. After everything was done and I went to pay, I told the owner how pleased I was and have far I came to get them. Do you know the owner (I think she was) gave me the 10.00 gas discount???? I will definately be back in two months. This place is good and they appreciate their customers. E Johnson
