I had a horrible experience with this service as I made an appointment over one week in advance to have my braids taken down along with calling the day before to confirm my appointment all to get there, wait one hour because noone could recall my appointment. Once I was asked to sit in the chair, the lady (with the young child) was very rude as she was using the scissors to not only cut out the weave but also MY HAIR! Once I brought it to her attention, her response was very rude and unprofessional. After cutting through 3 braids, she asked if I could come back tomorrow. I didn't understand this since I previously made an appointment. Needless to say, I left and didn't even think about returning the next day..... or any day for that matter. They really need to learn professionalism and customer service!
After doing my research & reading reviews for braiding shop. I decide to get me S. twist here even after reading the recent review. Base on the fact after reading every reviews from other shops. I found none of them had rave reviews . I 'm glad I followed my own advice. My twists are very nice & neat. It's only been a week but I haven't lost one yet . But mind you I did look @ their company policy posted it does states if you loose any braids within 1or 2 wks. They will replace. My appointment was @ nine they arrive 10 minutes later. Was not a big deal for me. I will suggest not to do a walk in or a same day call in. They will have to work you in. The shop was clean. The ladies were professional. The price is the usually for S. twist. I over heard the quotes for other type of braids it was the usual price you should expect to pay. Another benefit they have hair there. Hopefully you're not into crayon color hair. If so you might need to bring your hair. Mind you I don't think that will take your price down , I got my twist a long length so I will be able to do different styles. So it took about 8 hrs. Only negative I can report is . First let me say I admire there determination in working under certain restriction . But @ the end of the day I might have been there maybe an hour or so less if the baby stayed @ home. Thank my lucky stars my braider baby was a little older & behave fairly well . Other than this small issue for me . I would highly recommend this shop.
Got the senegalese twist on 3/21/14 and had to return less than a week later to get the middle and the back of my head retwisted because Touba sister left lots of my hair out of the twist and instead her gathering my loose strands or hair and twisting it she cut my hair. This was by far the absolute worst hair experience I ever had. STAY AWAY DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!
Let me preface this review by stating I am a mid -40 professional woman in the process of going 'natural'. With that being said, I received Senegalese twist on Saturday June 15 and I am truly amazed at the quality of work. I had been wearing a short cut, longer on top with maybe an inch in the back at the shortest point. These ladies braided every strand! I have read other reviews stating the salon is not professional because of excessive phone use and conversations with each other; I disagree with that statement. Sure they talked on the phone and to other stylist and customers for that matter, however it had no impact on the time spent braiding my hair. Honestly what else can one expect when the stylist is braiding for 8 hours!
I highly recommend this salon and will be returning - Special thanks to Maria!!
I was scheduled for Senegalese Twists for 9AM. Touba did not start on my hair until 11. The reason for this was because she needed to "take breakfast". She stayed on her phone the entire time talking and texting, which prolonged the process. Another employee came in to assist and it still took forever because they were either talking to each other, on the phone, or taking a break.
