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.
We hired Bobby Pins & Blush, LCC to do hair and make up on site for my daughter-in-law’s wedding on May 6, 2017 for the bride, all bridesmaids, and both mothers. The staff sent, Kris for makeup and Morgan for hair, was amazing and everyone was beautiful. I would recommend either or both artists for your wedding. However, the studio manager Brandi and the owner Teddi can give you different and contradictory information and when asked to clarify both can become defensive and off-putting. We did two make up trials and apparently there is no plan for appointments that are cancelled by the studio in less than one hour before appointments due to staff absences (even if you tell them that you have coordinated your appointment with other vendors). I feel the price was comparable to other studios in the area; however, it is clear that the studio is not managed well, the owner does not take accountability for studio miscommunication, and is not accommodating to the needs of the customer when artists are out, the appointment is just cancelled whether you took off work or coordinated with other vendor’s for the day.
Me & my sister went there for the first time and I absolutely loved it ! First time getting my hair done professionally and it was totally worth it ! I got mine done by Amanda I'm in love with my red hair , my sister got hers done by Bree and she was so welcoming and someone you can just have a good conversation with ! She also gave me tips on doing hair because I told her I was in cosmetology, I got hands on experience she is by far the best stylist !
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
