This was my first time getting senegalese twist at Alima- wow, what a great experience! I have had my hair braided so many times before but never found the place that I wanted to go back to... until yesterday!!! I absolutely love my braids. Although she got there 20 min late and the place doesn't look the best from the outside, the inside is nice and cozy and the owner and her sister are very nice. They are great team and work hard to get the job done fast. It took about 7 hours to finish and yes it did hurt a little bit but it was so worth it!!!!Nobody ever before took so much time applying all different product to my hair to make sure the final look is perfect. What I also like is that the owner told me at the beginning of the appointment that the price will have to change due to my hair type and length (I am white and have silky, long and thick hair what she wasn't aware of during our conversation on the phone). I had experience in different hair salon that the price has changed from $150 to $300 but the person didn't tell me about it until it was time to pay... not cool... but like I said this women has a class and told me at front. I would definitely recommend Alima to everybody!!
I really needed my hair done for school and I called the shop and asked when I could come get my hair done. She asked me when I was free, and I was able to come in that next hour to give me time to get there and look in her book of different hairstyles. It took 6 1/2 hours to do my hair. It was not rushed, and normally at most shops they take breaks to eat and leave you waiting for an extra hour. That was not the case she waited to do my hair first before she ate. Also she was very friendly. Most of the braiding places I've been too were a little rude and don't listen to what I am asking for. They did my Senegalese exactly how I wanted and I will be getting my hair done there from here on out.
I got some poetic justice braids done last week at another shop. ( NOT affiliated with Alima) My braids already started falling out and looked extremely old . They were not done correctfully mot full at all I personally was not going to walk around looking crazy . I got referred to Alima by a customer at my Job a while ago . I called Alima and the next day she had time to help me . She was very fair in her pricing and felt sorry for my situation . My braids are BEAUTIFUL !!! Alima is the best !
