The braider was late from being across the street at CVS in Alton. She waited until she was done braiding my goddess braids to add gel. So my braids were puffy and nothing like the picture sent. The shop was cluttered and dirty. I will never return to the business, because they are not professional and dirty (even in St. Louis too). Heed my warning ladies...they will never get another dollar from me! I should have gone to my niece or cousins for the same service.
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.
This place is Horrible i wish im going to try to get someone to look into closing this video because they are sloppy with their works I RECOMMEND YOU PLEASEEE DONE this lady put 10 layers of jel all over my head and for my birthday my hair was a mess and im not overexaderrating
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 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!!!
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.
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.
Don't go here! I went here to get crochet braids. My appointment was at 11:00. I get there at 11. She starts on my hair around 11:20. She gets half my hair braided and then tells me she needs to take a lunch break! WTF???! She goes somewhere comes back and eats. Then continues to work on my hair. All the while speaking in her native tongue. I really feel like that's so rude! Then "Amy " I guess comes over and starts shaking her head saying no, do this. I had my glasses off and couldn't see what she was doing. She was putting something on the knots. I asked her and she said the hair was too fine and she didn't want it to come undone. Upon further inspection I found the substance she was using was NAIL GLUE!!! She was actually using nail glue, glue for fake nails in my hair! I will NEVER go back here!
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!!!!!
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.
