After complaining to the owner about being late she threaten to stab and kill me after I had been waiting for over an hour. The owner said that she would stab me and kill me and to get the f*** out of her shop. This place is dirty with hair and food everywhere. This is the most unprofessional establishment in Colorado Springs and I will be contacting the BBB and this place should be closed down ASAP.Avoid this place at all cost!!!
I had an appointment at 7:00am when I got to the shop all the lights were off and the door locked so I was patient and waited around until 9:00am because I understand people run late sometimes. I started calling and texting but never got a return call or text. I'm in the military so my time is valuable the least a person can do is return a phone call or text not ignore someone. Hopefully everyone's experience from here on out is better than mine. Every time I get my hair done I'm asked who does it and trust and believe if anyone in the military asks me where to get there braids done I WILL NOT RECOMMEND THIS SHOP. Waste of an early Saturday morning. I could have stayed in my bed and slept.
Let me start off by saying I was a little reluctant to come to this shop because of some of the negative reviews. I can't tell you how happy I am with my experience with Talaa. She did a magnificent job on my hair and I felt right at home from the moment I walked in til the time I left. Also, please understand that Talaa is a very busy woman and tries to please everybody. She literally braids all day and all night so the woman barely has time to sleep. Just be patient and try to work with her and you won't regret it. Best braid shop in town. Wonderful woman. Wonderful employees.
Keke L Dillard. From Talaa .I am shocked at your review . You wrote your review on 25th then come to our shop on 26th to have your hair done at our unprofessional salon? I don't understand! If our shop is soo unprofessional why did you beg us to do your hair? If you have something to say Atleast have the courage to do so in person instead of hiding behind your keyboard. Nobody is perfect but we do our best to provide our clients with the best services we can. The work of our hands and the satisfaction of our clients can be clearly seen on our facebook page. Talaa African braiding. You know we are the best in Colorado spring and that's why you came to our shop don't be a hater.Have a nice day.
TALAA of AFRICAN BRAIDING has consistently provided a quality service with a genuine & compassionate personality for the past 4 years I have known her. Whatever all these negative reviews are truly about, has nothing to do with her skills as a braider! It appears there are a few people out there who want to see her business fail (probably those who wanted to work with her and found their skills don't hold a candle to Talaa's, do they had to move on). In regards to the women speaking French... I myself am a Linguist - that is to say, I speak 5 languages, however, I partially agree with the discontentment of any language being spoken when not everyone in the room speaks it as well. Yet to state this is America, so speak English is really rather silly since America does not a a "dedicated official language". I do understand how speaking in one's Native language is easier for some people, it is an act of Audism (excluding anyone from a conversation by speaking a language that is foreign to anyone who is present - without an effective Interpreter present for the inclusion). More often than not, a simple, polite request for them to practice the dominate language of the general public while in their company, often results in a more unified and comfortable experience for everyone. Off my soap box now *winks*, TALAA AFRICAN BRAIDING is where I go for my braids, and I am a Braider myself! Nobody can satisfy everybody, though I am confident that Talaa will at the very minimum do her very best to give you a quality service.
This is by far the most unprofessional African braiding place in Colorado Springs. Not once but twice bad services from them. WILL NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE TO GO THERE. THE HOURS OF OPERATIONS IS LIES!! She work when she want to work!! I rather pay service at in home slaughter house than there!!
COLORADO SPRINGS SUPER AFRICAN BRAIDING SALON.First of all colorado springs hair stylist do a great job.I dont care if your from east or south.Talaa did my hair and just to proof it look it up on her facebook page the great work she does.Lady below monique I was at talaa salon doing my hair when you came in with your nasty stinky attitude calling them slaves.You come from new jersey so what??? That isnt a reason for you to insult anybody regardless of where they come from.I wanted to slap the crap out of you but you were lucky I know jesus. You had your hair done you loved it went home your boyfriend didnt like the style because it didnt look like beyonce's, whose fault is it??? You made threats to bring down talaa salon on facebook,yellow page and all the media outlets.But let me remind you that with your attitude and your stinky body odor no one will take you in except ofcourse if you go back to the east. The way you posted this review looks like you were high on something.Eveybody was laughing at you and telling you to leave the shop cos you were as getto as hell.You cant compare yourself with beyonce. Get you a life wannabe beyonce!!
Love. Love. Love this place. I'm new to the Colorado area and was excited to find a braid shop after hearing about the weather in this area. Serena and Eunice were the perfect hostess. The ladies were polite , hospitality to the max, they made sure myself and the other customer were well taken care of. Not to mention my hair is fabulous. I have gone to many braid shops in the South and Northern parts of the east coast and none of them, met the expectations I received Sunday. Thanks ladies for not only a fabulous hair due for the next 3 months but a great time in your shop. Felt like I was in my shop back home.
Ok..not to detour anyone else but....when I want quality work done and I take precious time to care for my hair, I expect that u also do the same. How can u say u work with damaged hair and natural hair, when u dnt even properly do hair!?!?!?!! I went there being skeptical..never a f***in gain!! Dnt know how to wash hair...dnt condition it (uses blue magic hair grease..good an fine back before i discovered better products!)..dnt blow dry natural hair right. I mean come one..ends to roots..EVERYONE KNOWS THAT!! I went in there ready to get my hair done nicely so i can continue to grow healthy hair. I bet when i take this crap out ill be back to where i started. Everything i have grown will be cut due to improper blow drying and combing with a rat tail come. They specialize in bald spots and damaged hair because they cause it. SMH!! Who does that and where!?!? A sew in is supposed to look natural when its not full and hair is left out. Ummm why do i have cornrows showing? Why do i hae to leave ur shop and do my own hair into a style? What am i paying u for? Oh i know...to do my hair tight after u already damaged it..so ican come home an take it out and redo it better myself. My roots an edges are pretty much done. When u can see the white root bulb, that means its too tight. I really have to stop trying to put faith in these bootleg Colorado hair stylist. Firsy i thought i was being ignorant but now i see u people have no skills here. PROCEED TO THIS SHOP AT YOUR OWN CAUTION...IF U ARE FROM OUT EAST...THIS PLACE IS NOT FOR U!!!! Id give no stars if I could. And if I wasnt courteous Id strangle her for my money back!!One last thing...kept changing the times when I should come in...so im thinking this must be a new employee...Nope!! This is the owner!! U have me wait for u for hrs, then u do a bad rush job or whatever u wanna call it..Ha!! She was acting as if she didnt know what time the store opened...ummm dnt u make the hrs?!?! Wtf people!!Sorry for the rant but everytime i look at my edges i get pissed! And i hate to see my money go to nothing at all.
