Sista Locks & Braids
2027 Russell Ave, Charlotte, NC 28216
If you are considering sisterlocks, this is NOT the place to go. I had them installed here and asked about what I should use to care for them and how I should care for them, the stylist told me to do nothing, to just sit back and watch them grow. So when I returned for a retightening, she acted upset that I had washed my own hair and told me that I should have come to them for that.
Well needless to say that I did not go back and a few months later after noticing all my new growth, I was about to just cut them all out and say forget the whole experience until I found a new stylist. The new stylist informed me thouroughly about how to care form my hair and stated that in fact I needed to be washing my hair all along in order for my locks to do just that...LOCK. What is funny though is when she asked me who had done my initial install, I paused before answering and she stated two names and one of which was the name of this particular stylist at Sista Locks and Braids.
She is not, I repeat NOT certified and neither are her daughters that have been seen installing locks on more than one occassion by others in the shop. The certification that is on her web site is outdated. Needless to say that I did not notice this until after the fact. I was just so thrilled that after months of research I had finally found what I thought to be a place on the up and up.
Please I urge you to not spend your money at this establishment. If you are looking for a certified locktician visit this site. www.Sisterlocks.com to find consultant.
Really didn't want to give this business a rating because in my opinion it doesn't deserve any but I had to in order to post this review.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY....THEY ARE NOT DOING THE REAL THANG "SISTERLOCKS" if you go there and pay them your hard earned money, you may as well give it to me....hell, I can find a better use for it (trip to the beach, purchase a new watch, a new laptop....donate some to the homeless (hopefully you get the picture). i was a customer (twice, young and dumb) and I lost over 700 dollars between both shops....for some reason, I can't change the star rating....it should be zero. don't be stupid, do your research and get exactly what you want and pay for the first time. Check the registry!
