A Touch of Te' is a wonderful shop operated by a fabulous young lady who is an absolute expert at hair care. Her talent for hair just doesn't stop at being a stylist, she has a gift for bringing your hair back to life as well as transitioning it to be strong and the healthiest it's ever been. The atmosphere of her shop is comfortable and welcoming. I've been going to Shonte' for nearly 3 months and in that time frame she's won my heart! Her service etiquette is beyond expectation. Whatever your hair needs, she will do. My hair was thick, breaking and on the edge of unhealthiness. After a few appointments, I consulted Shonte about going natural and she bombarded me with information to aid me in my decision to persue it. I am soooo glad I did! My hair has grown trmendously, it's vibrant and manageable beyond my belief. I can walk out of her salon looking like I have a perm, I am a living witness she's a miracle worker! I initially started with simple hairdos which I was pleased, then tried some updos which I was pleased and now I've ventures out to a sew-in weave for the summer..again I am pleased. There's nothing this lady cannot do. If you have little hair or lots of it, she's the best. Trust me you'll be back again and again! Thank you Shonte' for your professionalism and your passion for doing hair and most importantly, hair care. You just don't see the hair on the person's head, you see the person as well. God bless you!Lerra
I was a little bit nervous at first because I don't really go to hair salons. I had a really bad experience at one before. So I have natural hair and I looked up salons and this one popped up. From the phone call I knew that this place was professional. This place must be under new management because these other reviews could not be further away from the truth. I called their and was immediately asked what service that I was looking for . I told her that I was transitioning and wanted a big chop. She told me the process of getting an appointment and it is online. You do have to pay a deposit of $35 which I was a little bit Leary but it's through PayPal so it was cool. She said that it will come off of my bill when I was serviced. I was like dang they serious. I receive a text to show up 15 minutes early so I did. I was immediately serviced and was out of the salon in less than 2 hours. The salon is intimate and quite serene. We watched Wendy Williams and the staff was professional. She offered some products for me to purchase and I did because she used them on me in the salon. This place is going places I felt like I was special. I will be back.
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 called in advance for my appointment and I was told to book online. Im getting used to this type of thing even though I am old school. So I had to pay $35 to reserve my spot. I understand though because I know people flake on their appointments. It really makes it hard on everybody else. But I did book. So when I went to the salon the salon was a cute quaint place. They have it really laid back there. They had the tv on and we watched a different world. I really like that show. well anyway. I received a relaxer. The stylist explained to me everything that she was going to do. She also told me what products she used on me and gave me the option of taking some products home. I got a hair cut because my ends were quite damaged. She deep conditioned my hair. I just was very impressed on the service. The price was good as well. I don't get my hair done so I understood paying $125 for everything. I will be back when its time.
I have been searching for a stylist who is professional, honest, caring and knows her stuff. I can honestly say that Shonte is all that and more! From the first day i sat in her chair she was honest with me about what was going on with my hair. It was a mess!!! To say the least!!! Brittle, dry, broken,uneven and the list goes on. So Shonte took full inventory on what was needed in order to bring my hair back to life. Its been almost 3 month's since Shonte has been my stylist and i can already see a huge difference in my hair! When my hair looks good, i feel good. I have started bringing my 15 yr old daughter and her friends upon request. They love it! And we all know how hard it is to please teens....that speaks volumes about how much talent this lady has. All i can say is A touch of Te is a cut above the rest and both her and her staff are truly a blessing.Thank you Shonte your the best!!!♡
I found A Touch Of Te' online and she took me as a walk in the same day in June. She was very professional and gave me an assessment of my hair which was over-processed. She provided me with a natural work around until I would be ready for another relaxer. When I returned to Shonte s shop in July, as promised she made my hair look absolutely wonderful. Not only diid she make my hair look and feel great, she gave me a hairstyle that I loved and was very low upkeep for me. HUGE PLUS. The other huge plus is that Shonte promotes healthy hair and educates you on this while she works her magic. If you are looking for a hairstylist that provides a complete service, look no further. You found her.
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.
OMG, So I was leaving soon to go on a trip and I didn't want to be bothered with my hair. I wanted to get my hair braided but a lot of the African salons/living rooms/ kitchen/ whatever can be a little seedy. Plus they are always talking on the phone or to one another at the top of their voices, screaming and that gets on my nerves. Needless to say my experience at Wazala was nothing like this. The place was immaculate, my stylist was a boss. She made sure I was comfortable, gave me bottled water to quench my thirst and proceeded to braid the hell out of my hair . Long story short , I love it and I will be returning. Check out my Senegalese twist on here site.
