The first two times that I went to Yakah I was very happy however my third visit was a different story. I went there to get my edges touched up.The two stylist that did my hair didnt make the braids long enough so it didnt blend well with the other braids. When I went back and pointed this out to them; the stylist only made some of them longer. The hair that they used (out of a drawer) tangles something terrible, and I have already lost about five braids after only a week. And talk about "PARDON THE INTERRUPTION" one of the stylist brought their baby with them to the salon and all that baby did was haller and tear up the place. The stylist couldnt hardly work on my head w/out having to stop every 5 minutes to tend to her baby.
Not only this business is near my residence, but I truly love the professionalism that is done. The owner is really professional and we've gotten to be good friends in the last 4 years that I've done business with them. I got kinky braids and was out in a matter of five hours since my head was worked on by three people. They also engage in conversation with the customer which a lot of African hair braiding don't do. Easy access too for people using the bus and easy to set an appointment either that day or whenever you want to. You also get a discount if you refer a friend.
Excellent!! I got Marley twists a couple days ago and I have not stopped receiving compliments since I walked out of her salon! I ended up being about an hour late to the appointment (sorry!) but she still got me done in enough time to get to work. She answered every question I had and listened to what I wanted while giving constructive advice. The whole appointment took about 3 hours but it didn't feel like that long because she is very easy to talk to. Unfortunately I'm moving so I don't know if I'll be back but I'll definitely keep her info and recommend her to friends!
