As a caucasian woman growing up in the bible belt of southern Missouri, I was not afforded the opportunity to have hair extensions - even though I have wanted them for a long time. Local salons did not offer them and the bigger salons in distant cities charged a kings ransom for extensions. I recently moved to Weatherford, Texas and one of the first things I did was to investigate hair salon's that specialize in this product. I knew the price was going to be higher than what I'm used to paying for a trip to the salon, but then, I was going to be getting something I'd never been able to have before. I checked several places out in Weatherford and in Fort Worth and was a little discouraged. The salon's I looked at either used glue or had astronomical prices. Then I came across Hair Paradise in Irving, Texas. I called Henrietta on a Tuesday evening. She was out of state but had forwarded her calls to her cell phone. I explained what I wanted and she agreed to meet me first thing upon arriving back in Irving on Thursday morning. Henrietta was great from the word go. She called me on Wednesday evening to ensure I had good directions to her salon from my new home, then again first thing on Thursday morning to let me know that her flight had been delayed and she was running a little behind. When I met her for the first time, she hugged me and I knew I'd made a friend for life. Henrietta talked to me about my hair, the strand by strand extensions I wanted, the color and style that would look best on me, the maintenance of my new hair, simply everything a person could think of - and more! Let me tell you, spending time in her salon is a unique experience!! Plan to spend at least half the day, but you won't notice it until you finally drag yourself out the door, because the people you're going to meet are as wonderful as she is! I have made several new friends that, like me, are in the social services industry. I have had more fun in Hair Paradise that I have anywhere else since moving to Texas. My big day had finally come, it was Friday and Henrietta was going to give me the hair that I have always wanted. She washed and treated my natural hair, talked to me about what she was going to do, and then she began my transformation. It took several hours to put all of that beautiful new hair in, but I'm fully confident that it will last the 5 - 6 months she said it would because she has gone above and beyond to ensure I know just how to take care of it. I had to come back in the next day to pick up the special hair shampoo, conditioner, and other products. Not only did she make sure I had everything I needed and knew exactly how to use them properly, she styled my hair for me before I left for the day. You'd think that is all, but you'd be wrong. The following Sunday, Henrietta called me at home to make sure everything was okay with my new head of hair. She wanted to know if I had any questions, gave me a couple of tips, and told me to call her anytime if I had any more questions. I gotta tell you, I'm looking forward to my follow up just to spend some more time in the salon. I've found my stylest in Texas, and I won't be going anywhere else. My daddy always told me you get what you pay for, but sometimes, you get even more!!

What a dilemma when I was looking for a hairdresser to do my weave. I had experienced so many disappointments in attempting to find someone who was knowledgeable and also dependable. I had gotten referrals from friends that did not come through. Finally after exhausting every avenue, I went to the internet and that is where I found Henrietta who owns Hair Paradise. She agreed to meet me on a Saturday that she was not even in her shop for a consultation. She was so easy to talk with and knew exactly what I wanted. She set up the initial appointment after the consultation and even went with me to purchase the hair to ensure I would not only get the best value for my dollar but that I would get the hair that was right for me. I was so pleased with my weave and that was over a year ago. My real hair under the weave has never been healthier.....Having Alopecia, I have enough hair for a weave but not enough for anywhere near a normal appearance. If you are looking for someone who is knowledgeable and is interested in you as a person and your comfort level in how you look, make an appointment with her. She is the best!
After a very bad braiding experience last year, I had to chop all my hair off and start from one inch of new growth. I vowed to never ever braid ,weave or relax again. After a year of being natural and realizing that natural hair care is harder to maintain than life itself, I researched the net for nautural hair care specialist to include braiding and extensions with years of experience, pricing, a profolio and long term clients. Needless to say I have found her, Henrietta is the best she takes her time and is very honest with you about your hair condition she gives her recommendations that benefit the client not her pocket. She doesn't force you into a hair style that you may not be too sure about. Henrietta saved the day because I was on the brink of reveritng back to a relaxer. I will recommend her along with advertise for her every chance I get. She is a very busy hair care professional so make your appointment for a consulation. Believe me you will be impressed. I am also happy that I don't have to travel to NYC to get my hair done.
