Awesome Elegance!

I agree Cynthia is awesome! I wish I could found her sooner. She provided Tree Braids service and gave a look with style compared to others salons I have visited! If you are looking for that professional look she is definitely the one you should select. She is honest and open and will provide you with feedback! Awesome simply awesome!!

Wow!!! It's all I can say. I decided to get my Micros put back in, but coming from Atlanta I am very choosey about who I allow to do my hair. So for a week I was researching online braid shops. I had made an appt. with someone else when I came across Akwaaba reviews. The reviews were so outstanding I couldn't believe them at first. I then started researching the shop for reviews everywhere and to my surprise I found a lot of them but NOT one of them was negative. I immediately cancelled my appt at the other shop and called Ms. Cynthia and told her I needed her to do my hair. She was very flexible and was able to get me in when I needed and even changed to come an hour earlier when I called her that day. Needless to say all the reviews were right on point. My hair is beautiful and I am continuously getting compliments EVERYWHERE I go. I have found my a new braid shop!!!! She is very humble, sweet and professional....Thanks again Ms. Cynthia!!!!

Professional results

This was my first time getting Senegalese twists done. I showed Cynthia a picture of how I wanted my hair to look and she did not disappoint me. She did an amazing job!! She also has a great friendly personality which helped the time go by smoothly. I've been getting so many compliments left and right! If you need your hair braided in Tampa go to Cynthia! You will not regret it!!

MRS. CYNTHIA IS MORE THAN A BLESSING!

Words can not explain how Mrs. Cynthia has provided extraordinary customer service while at AKWAABA'S! I have never had to wait or long lines like other African hair braiding shops. At AKWAABA'S there is unlimited WI-FI, Netflix & drinks/snacks available while getting your hair braided/sew-ins, etc. Upon arriving and leaving, I feel refreshed knowing my hair will last a long time! JOB WE'LL DONE!!!

Sister Akos is a true professional. She is very friendly as well as being the best at what she does. Her store has free wi fi and is clean so wait time is not a hassle but as long as ive had appointments i never had to wait like some salons and she accepts walk in too. If u need ur hair done and done right Akwaaba is the place to go

Overall
Highly recommendable

Cynthia was the only hair stylist to return my phone calls after I had tried another shop in Tampa when I first moved to the Tampa Bay Area. I drive from St Petersburg about every two months to get Senegalese twists. I always receive compliments on my hair. She returns my calls even when her voicemail is full. I've been to her three times & am never disappointed. I tried to give her & another stylist a tip my first time and they refused! Told me they wanted me to come back.
When there's another available stylist in the salon they both will work on my hair. She doesn't take breaks or waste time talking on the phone like previous stylists I've had.
Nice shop. Posters & curtains cover the window front so the public isn't looking in. She now has drinks & snacks in the salon for cheap.
I would recommend her services to anyone.
Polite, great customer service, reliable, and beautiful results.
