My daughter and I been here several times. The owner is very nice and the prices are normal. You just have to tell them exactly what you want. If they start your hair stop and look in the mirror. If it is wrong they fix it to what you ask. They've done corn rolls on my daughters hair, 2 strand long twist, and they've also done 2 strand long twist on my hair. I'm very hard to please. I haven't wore braids since 2002 (HS) and I was happy when I left!
First off let me start out by stating that I am a person who is in the braiding shop every three months faithfully to get my hair braided and has not had a relaxer in almost 2 years. For the last year i have been going to Taru for my services. My first experience was excellent despite me having to wait an hour for my stylist to arrive. My second braid job was horrible. i got long twists that were beautiful along the edges but the middle was thick and nasty and started coming a loose from the root in the middle of my head. I called the shop owner to complain and she told me she was 'in the store shopping and would call me back. She never did. Never the less i went back again for Kinky Twists they were ok. Now i went 2 1/2 weeks ago to get "Tree Braids" and they look like i have had them in for 3 months already. I have called the owner to see what we can do to fix this and she has told me that she will call me back again. I'm not holding my breath. I will be contacting BBB.
Honestly, not the best hair experience I've had. Why?1. The salon is not very clean or tidy, I had to go next door to use the bathroom and by the time I left I saw a cockroach running across the floor 2. Although my braider was nice, it doesn't excuse the fact that she and her coworker, basically, neglected us by talking in their own language and ignored the fact that I was in pain the entire time. I mean, I understand that its probably more comfortable to talk in your native tongue, but, when you have clients you should make them feel comfortable and acquainted. I just didn't really enjoy the experience, at all, actually. I'm not sure if I'll come back here again.
