I scheduled an appointment for Sunday on Friday. The owner told me to come in Saturday so she could go with me to the beauty supply store & get the hair I needed. I got to the shop Saturday, no one greeted me or said anything- they just starred like I was from another planet. I told them why I was there & waited 15 minutes for the owner to show up for her to tell me to just give her $20 & she will get the hair. "Bish, wheh?"... I arrived Sunday & surprisingly, she pulled up 2 minutes after I did. She began my hair at approx 9:15 (appointment was at 9). Mind you, I asked how long it would take when I made the initial call because I had somewhere to be at 4. She assured me 6 hours... An hour, 30 into her doing my hair, she leaves!!! She told me she's be right back & just left!!! Very unprofessional!!!! I'm in the chair as I type and she's been gone for nearly 30 minutes. I will NOT come back & I definitely would NOT recommend this shop to ANYONE!!!!!
Some shady characters/customers come in here. But the workmanship is worth it. They really take the time needed and work until the work is done. Lef…
Upon entering the shop I was happily greeted and told exactly what we were goin to do. Amy was understanding of my time and understood that life happens. I had and appointment for 9:30 and didn't arrive until 10:30. She was not upset nor did she make me make another appointment. Her and her sister were very professional and attentive. I felt as if I walked into a friends home and was very comfortable. I will recommend for others to come here as well as come back myself. I will be uploading a post to my Facebook upon completion of my hair and a happy smile to accompany it.
I showed up in the shop as a walk in on Saturday around 3:30pm and said I wanted Micros. They told me it would be 6 hours. 30 minutes later (MaMa) started my hair, she worked finished in 5 hours and only got up once for like 5 minutes. She was very professional in that regard and I really appreciated it, especially being a walk in. Other than there bad kids running around the shop being disrespectful, I give them 4 starts. I Love my hair and I will defiantly be coming back!!!
OUTSTANDING WORK!!! Joba does the BEST sew in's ever. I moved out of STL, however I still come back and let Joba do my sew in. I tried other hair salons where I live and they do not do such a detailed job. My sew in is always nice and full and I can wear it up in a ponytail and not have to worry about tracks showing. Also around the border of your hairline tracks are invisible, she sews and blends things the best.
Amy also braid my hair and do excellent work. Not your average hair braiding shop. They are family oriented and professional. Once they start on your hair they complete it with little to no distractions. Open 7 days a week for the person who works the normal Monday thru Friday schedule. Love this place and the atmosphere.
They did a fabulous job on my kinky twists! I was in and out in about 3 hours. It was the most professional experience I've had at an African Hair braiding salon, period! I had two ladies braiding my hair. It felt so good I went to sleep! I will definitely be coming back for senegalese twists in a couple of month.
I went to Joba back in 2010 and she did such a great job. I recently went back to her a few weeks ago and the service was just as great. I got the tree braids that were curly and she did an awesome job. The braids looked very professional and I received numerous comments.
This salon is beautiful and the stylist and barbers make u feel so welcome when u walk in and they also do awesome work
I love my hair. finished my hair in less then 8 hours and is completely finished
