HAPPY I WENT! I learned about a Touch of Te after reading a number of positive comments and testimonials on the internet. I feel that if these people take time out of their busy day to sit down and share their hair care experience, then there must be something special about the Shonte. I started receiving hair care services from A Touch of Te several months ago and figured that its about time that I take time out of my day to share with you my thoughts. I see why people have so many nice things to say about Shonte’. Not only is she a professional hairstylist and can put out some serious hair styles (be they conservative or trendy), but more importantly has a PASSION about her work! I’ve seen her create nice hair styles with clients who have different types of hair (short, long, and weaved). She will literally go out of her way to make sure that her client is satisfied with the end result. Prior to Shonte, I had been going to a very high end beauty salon, where you pay high prices and the stylists weren’t all that great when it came to “service”. Shonte is down to earth, on time with her clients, and insists that you are satisfied before leaving. Overall, I get quality hair care with Shonte and will continue to use her services.

Adam was doing my braids and 'the view' show was airing. The discussion was on children.. How hard/involving it is to raise kids, single mothers and one lady said she didn't want to have any kids and that's when adam angrily shouted 'why should a woman live in this world with no kids.... What are you loving for?'. She begun asking how many kids I have told her I got none...this Adam woman went on saying they are eleven in total, their mother does not work because they all support her and a whole bunch of garbage. She asked who would take care of me at old age and I told her you don't give birth with the hope those kids will be your caregivers or of help. I reminded her there are people who don't bother with their kids/parents but life has to go on. Adam said she has 4 kids of her own and went on asking personal questions and when she got no answers she begun to have an atittude. It was so bad such that she won't even excuse me to make a one minute phone call. I didn't tip her and as soon as I handed her the money she stormed out. This is the last place I would ever recommend anybody.,,.she's mean, rude and arrogant'. ADAM, TAME YOUR TONGUE..., ITS GOD THAT GAVE U THE FOUR KIDS
I look TOO FABULOUS these days and am so happy that I found Te'. I've been a new customer since last month, and when I first arrived at TOUCH OF TE', I was not ignored or felt as if I was in the way, instead TE' and her staff, greeted with professionalism, a smile and respect for my time. Before I found Touch of Te', it seemed like I couldn't find a stylist to listen to MY needs so, the results were always disappointing and I stopped going. But, Te' took the time to listen to what I needed from my new cut, style and even my color, which she customized just for me. Did I mention that I looked TOO FABULOUS for words when I left her salon - YESSSS, I found MY STYLIST. Now, when I enter a room, all eyes are on my new "DO" which suits me and makes me feel even more like "myself" -- professional, confident, and sexy and its because of TOUCH OF TE'. Te' is a true highly-skilled stylist and she "worked" my color, my cut and my style and people now ask me "Who Did Your Hair?" Keep up the great customer service Te' - Thank you, Thank You!! ~ LD
I would like to echo the sentiments shared in the previous reviews. As many women know, especially women of color, it can be difficult and stressful trying to find a good hairdresser. This is even more stressful when you are new to an area. Well my anxieties were completely alleviated by Ms. Shonte. She is truly a blessing - professional, skilled, and takes a real interest in the health of your hair. First of all, she accommodated me - a first-time client - on very short notice, and was very flexible with scheduling, expressing a willingness to come in early if needed. She began by asking me what my issues have been, both with my hair and with previous stylists. Based on that, she recommended various techniques for maintaining and protecting my brittle hair. I did not have to wait a long time to be seen, and she had me in and out for a relaxer, trim and style within 3 hours. Her shampoo was thorough, and my hair looked full and healthy when she was finished. Although this was my first visit, I feel confident that I have found my new hair home in Baltimore. Thank you Te!!!!
I met Shonte while wearing braids I wanted to do something different but relaxers broke my hair off horribly Shonte looked at my hair confidently told me I did not need a relaxer let her do my hair I went to Shonte and she talked to me about hair care I was very impressed not to many hair care professionals get into hair care as far as hair health and Shonte did the end results were amazing I would of never thought my hair could look so nice in its natural state Shonte restored my confidence in going to a hair salon I was so tired of getting relaxers thrown in my hair and even though I would explain the issues that I am the hair professional attitude Shonte did not give me that she talked with me asked me questions concerning my hair problems and told me what would be the best regimen for my hair if I were to have any issues I know she's the type of stylist that would address and tell me how to care for my hair I think Shonte and her partner shaniece work wonderfully together and make a great team I am so glad I met them
A few years ago, I had the pleasure of finding Shonte to do my hair. She was one of the first stylists that promoted healthy hair growth, and took her time; however, I didn't fully appreciate and value her talent given different obstacles I was trying to overcome in life. Throughout the ups and downs I faced, I realized it would be best to re-write my wrongs and leave Shonte a much better and positive review compared to the one I left in the past: Ladies, please don't hesitate to see Shonte. It took me to go to other stylists who left my hair damaged and uncontrollable before I realized Shonte is the best and would not put your hair at jeopardy. The different techniques that she uses allowed my hair to grow and be healthy. I apologize again to you Shonte for my past review, and I want you to know that you are valued for ALL of the work that you do and the cooperation you showed to me despite what happened/was said in the past. Words will never describe my gratitude! Shannon M
I heard about this place from Instagram, and Google reviews. Im pretty sure the girl Neish would've slayed my hair, but they didnt open on time. I set my appointment for 10am (thats what I was told when I called to schedule). When i got there no one was there, so i said, "maybe she said 10:30, and not 10." So i waited. Long story short, I left to drive all the way back to Manassas, Virginia (that's where i live). I waited there until about 11:25 or so, and went right on back to my car to leave because, even if they did open at 10:30, no one was there, and when i left, there was at least 5 or 6 people standing outside waiting just like I was! Waste of a drive. So then I try calling after I left to see when someone would finally answer the phone, because now Im like, Okay, was my appointment for another friday, im confused? Finally someone answered the phone at 12:45! She said they open at 10:30am, and she said she seen my appointment listed, but didnt even apologize & was rude. Womp!
I am from New Orleans, LA. currently residing in the DC area and have been looking for a stylist who would put a smile on my face like my old one did. Yesterday, 3/19/2011, that stylist was discovered at A Touch of Te' This stylist works with all types of hair which is a plus for me since I have gone natural. Some salons that I have visited do not like to take natural clients if they are not getting a wash and go or a weave because of the straightening process. This is not the case with this salon.* <A BIG PLUS!!!!!!!!! *> I was her last client of the day and got to see the end results of previous clients. Needless to say, all of the styles were nice and the clients left happy. As I sat and watched, I said to myself, very nice. My choice of style was a quick weave. I have never worn a quick weave the way that I am wearing this one (still smiling ). Will I visit again? Of course,! Best one yet! Thanks A Touch of Te'
Beware if you're a natural sister. I went into this salon which only had one other customer. I'm thinking great, but one of the beauticians forcefully try to make me purchase a kertin treatment that was overpriced. Once she realized I wasn't going to purchase the product she start speaking Spanish to the other beautician about my hair not knowing I set my phone app to Spanish so I understood the conversation they were having about me and my hair.while getting my hair washed, my hair started to tangle,so another beautician had to wash and condition my hair. My hair was forced through a med sized comb instead of a wide tooth-comb, yanking out alot of my natural hair. After that torture I was sat in the beauticians chair with my hair still dripping wet alittle product was applied then more heat torture was inflicted. Blow dryer& flat ironed. Now my hair still smells burnt after two weeks. Wow all of this just for a different look.
