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.
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.
