I went to this shop on Nov 23rd, 2011 and was not happy with the professionalism of the braiders. how are you going to braid hair and take care of 2 children...a baby and a 5 year old. You pay too much money to have to listen to the operators constantly yelling at the five year old and the many breaks to feed the baby...they should hire a babysitter! I was told that getting 2 strand twists would not take as long as micro braids...so not true. And I was also told one price on the phone but when I got there it was a $30 price difference so make sure you have the price settled. My strands look nice but it took approx. 8 hrs :( Next time I get braids or strands I will make sure my braider has no kids at work with her, you have to pay too much money for that kind of crap.
They are professional they dont take a break every 1 hour I have thick hair and they did my micro braids in about 6 hours. They dont talk to the customer much or cater to the customer much all they watches was Soccer in African. The braid pattern is flawless the parts are excellent be sure to tell them if you have thick hair they quoted one price on the phone and when i got there tried to charge 50 more I reminded them that they quoted me a cheaper price and that was all the money I bought with me so they did it for the original price. So if you go you will get out at a decent time but bring your headphones and magazines!
When I called and asked how long it would take for my micro braids they said 10 hours. I was thinking yeah right. At other shops it took 12 hours for my hair. I was pleasently surprised when my hair was complete in a little under 10 hours. It was still light outside when they were done. The people were very friendly. I don't remember the name of the girl that did my hair but she did an awesome job. At some places that make the middle braids very thick. This girl did not do that.
