RUINED my hair. Braided my hair very very tight, so tight I got hair loss and destroyed edges, even though I had told them that it felt much too tight and was reassured 'they'll loosen'. Synthetic hair bought from the shop also gave me an allergic reaction. Scalp was itchy, sore and red for 3 days to the point of tears and then on day 5 I threw in the towel and removed them. Awful Awful AWFUL experience and waste of $300! Also, they let me sit in the shop for 5 whole hours before touching my head, even though there was only 1 other person in the shop, they wouldn't even talk to me. I ended up staying there for 12, yes 12 WHOLE HOURS.I also told them I needed to have the hair lightweight enough to put in a ponytail or bun because my work requires my hair to not touch my collar. They ended up putting 7 PACKS OF HAIR on my head, and the hair was so heavy I had to be careful how to hold my head. At $9 a pack, no wonder they put in so much, but it was NOT $8 a pack quality.

Positive, Friendly and Professional staff. Much better experience than some other shops I could name in the Fredericksburg area.
The shop made a mistake and did not own up to it. Very disappointed. Unable to further recommend location.
Exception service!!!I have been a client of African Hair Braiding for over a year now and I am extremely impressed with the consistent and professional services I have received during each visit. The full sew-in and natural hair styles I have worn are always top quality and prices are very reasonable!! I have tried multiple hairdressers around the DMV area but NONE compare to African Hair Braiding!! If you're looking for great, efficient and professional services, you must visit this salon!
I simply love this place, it's so clean and the workers are so nice...this place rocks
My Senegalese twists are looking flawless, thank you so much. Thus place is just amazing
I recommend this place to everyone, absolutely outstanding
I was forced to smell these ROTTEN FISH smelling women for 9 HOURS. I walked up to look at a book of styles & the ROACHES scatted also MICE turdes in the book! HEALTH DEPARTMENT WHERE ARE YOU !!!
I am not pleased with the quality of the hair used on my braids, or the follow up experience I had after I wasted my $200. I was a concerned customer and expressed my discomfort after getting my braids for back to school. Yet the owner, Emma, had no sympathy for the discomfort or the financial strain to get the style, since I am a college student and do not have money to waste on a pricey style. The braids itched to the point I started to bleed, and I was breaking out do to the cheap quality of the hair constantly poking and rubbing on my ears, neck and shoulders. I've gotten the style done before here and never had a problem with them until this past visit last week, and the owner said that it was basically my problem and she couldn't and was not willing to do anything about it. She can be a sweet lady, but at the end of the day she is still putting money in the bank whether or not you are a satisfied customer. Its a smile in your face while someone is reaching in your wallet.I am not the only person that encountered this experience with irritation from the hair. My friend had gotten her hair done, and has had them many more times than me. This time she got hers done 3 days before mine and she said that the quality of the braid hair seemed different and she was itching just as much as me. I am in the process of removing the hair, I got my hair done last Sunday, I couldn't last a full 2 weeks. I would not recommend this place if you want to waste $200.
On 2 June 2014, I went to Queen's Braiding in Fredericksburg, Va to buy hair. I had corn rolls in the front and box braids in the back. Cynthia, told me she could do feed in braids in the front and box in the back like I previously had. in 3 hours. I said ok, So she took out my hair and washed it. She started with the box braids in the back. she gets less than half way up and STOPS. and Emma starts with the feed in braids (kinda like corn rolls but prettier) and I asked Cynthia if she was going to put more box braids and she said NO, that is the way it was when you came in. I said NO it was further up my head she starts ARGUING with me that it wasn't. then her and Emma started talking in their language and I know they were talking about me and I said if you talking about me you need to speak English. She said we not talking about you. I know they were. I just so happen to have PICTURES of my last hair style and showed them she STILL argued with me. and said if I want more box braids I would have to pay more money. I was already paying $130.00 plus $16 for 2 packs of hair which you don't see the packs they come out the back with the hair in a knot. You never know how much they actually use but you paying $8 a pack. I said I am not paying more money so just do what you doing. I will never come here again. CYNTHIA said good don't come back any more. Then she left the salon. No bye to me or anything. Emma finished my hair but she was co signing with Cynthia and I showed her the pictures too. OH and I had a 10% coupon and Emma said we don't take them any more, I said well it doesn't expire until 15 June 2014 how you not accepting it. She said let me call Cynthia and see. They talk in their language and I know they were talking negative about me but she only took off $10. I said you can keep the other $3 and she said no you can't use it on a take out and wash. That is NOT what the coupon says but I didn't argue cuz I knew I would NEVER step foot in there again. Very UNPROFESSIONAL, Place is not clean and they talk in their language (yell) to each other the WHOLE time your there they ignore you and you can't even hear the TV they are so loud. They just lost 4 clients!
