Have nothing but good things to say about this salon. I don't go as often as I'd like or should ( probably once a month) but my hair has never been in the shape it is now. I received a thorough consult. My stylist is Shamese and she is so knowledgeable guys. I just love her. Most reviews talked about in and out and I was shocked because that is never the case in salons but sure enough, I was out in and out. I didn't have to wait hours to be seen. I love it! Now I will caution you. Shamese is not your typical old hair dresser. She is a true cosmetologist. She is very serious about your hair care and makes it clear that this is her focus. If you are one that doesn't care about your hair or only care about your hair on certain occasions then this IS NOT the salon for you. If your hair is damaged, you have terrible ends or your hair needs something in particular, she will suggest and expect you to get the services needed to repair them. I can see where some people may misconstrue this as rude or mean but she doesn't play around when it comes to healthy hair. I get it, and I love her for it. I followed her advise and even though I only come once a month, my hair is in the best shape it has ever been. I do want to add to the comment below. Although I don't know her particular situation I would like to give my feedback since I am a regular client. I have never had an instance where the salon was not open during my appointment. Shamese is either there already or pulling up right beside me (if I have a morning appointment). This salon is more modern in terms of how it operates and I absolutely love it! If you are a person that needs to be hand held to make an appointment then this may not be the salon for you. I enjoy booking online at MY convenience. I don't have to bother with calling the salon, leaving a message, waiting for the stylist to call me back and then after all that, them not having the appointment time I need. I go online, her schedule tells me what is available, I book and the rest is history. They do require a credit card to secure your appointment but It didn't bother me because I've never been the no call no show type. I never had a problem with this aspect of booking. Never had my card charged unexpectedly or any fraud. I did have to pay in cash and no, I was never given a receipt but that is something that only a person that has been to the salon would know. But I never asked for one either, nor have I ever been to a salon where they have giving me a receipt for a roller set lol. Again, to each is own but I love this salon. Everyone has to find "their" ideal salon and just because it may not operate like you'd like it too doesn't mean it's not fabulous. You just need to find the right salon/stylist for you. I have! Good luck girls!!!

Ok so I started not to write this review because Insider takes you through too much to sign up but this salon deserves it. I moved to Lex over a year ago. My hair has suffered. I've been to a few salons here. One very inexpensive, one that was moderately priced and one that was extremely overpriced. All claimed to be knowledgeable of my hair texture, all claimed to deliver. WRONG My sister in law recommended this salon. She told me about it when I first moved here but I tend to ignore her because she is not my favorite person. However during their New Years get together most of the ladies there were looking fly. I started to ask that famous question "Who did your hair" and you can guess what the answer was lol. By the time I reached the 3rd girl she innocently brought most of the women into our convo. Everyone was talking about this salon and how they came to know each other. They were all linked/met via this salon. Of course my sister in law had this little smirk on her face so I lied and said they didn't have any appointments available for me but I would try again... And yes, all of them urged me to try again. I went to their website which was extremely impressive. I have to be honest and hope I don't upset anyone but I have never been or heard of a "black" salon that was this professional. The service options they have are endless. I made an appointment right on their website. Amazing. I didn't have to call and play phone tag. I showed up with my list in my hand. I have a list that I use since I have had so many horrible experiences here. My stylist was Shamis. I walked in, she was waiting. I was automatically nervous because the clients are usually the one waiting. From that moment on, I developed a great relationship with this young lady. Shamis is professional, on time, doesn't double book, creates the most amazing hair and most importantly (to me) my hair is the healthiest it has ever been. I even felt the need to call my sis n law to thank her for the referral. You have no idea how much I didn't want to do that. Go see them. You will not be sorry.
Shamis Talib is just an amazing person and stylist. She is so sweet and attentive. I am a very indecisive person and she helped me understand and create a hair schedule that is right for me. I am natural and I thought I knew all there was to know about natural hair texture, how to care for it, styles because like everyone else does I watch Youtube and think that I have the inside scoop on what's what. Now I have a personalize hair regimen that is specific to my hair care needs. I even know my hair type which I didn't even knew exists. I have 3b hair and each hair type absolutely responds differently. I see her once a week and my hair has never thrived like it has. These so call stylist here in Lexington need to take notes because they talk a good game but in the end it's just talk. Most of them have the advantage over us because they are speaking foreign language to any person that has not picked up a cosmetology book and they "SOUND" professional but it's just a lot of fluff and filler as I call it. Most of these stylists here claim they know about natural hair but they only know how to style it. Hell, I can style my own hair but how to I keep it healthy. And she is the only black stylist here that knows how to do the Brazilian straightening. I saw this technique online and called EVERY SINGLE SALON IN LEXINGTON, KY and not one knew what I was talking about, let a lone had a stylist that did it. Do yourself a favor and get it right the first time with Shamis. D. Chenault
