I'm originally from Bronx, NY and have been in Greenboro for 12 years. I'm Dominican and Puerto Rican with a lot of long hair(used to be relaxed but now natural)and have struggled to find the right place for me to get my hair done in Greensboro, NC. Well the struggle & search is over!!! I went to Dominican Style on Randleman Rd and have finally found a salon home! Carmen quoted me $50 the day before for a wash/set/layered cut/round brush blow out/ flat iron and conditioner treatment included. Just to give you an idea of what I've been quoted before by others: $40 for roller set *only*-no blow out, nothing-just wash and set. :-/ Yeah-didn't get my hair done at that place. One time I was quoted $60 for wash/set cut and charged $70. Anyway, Carmen worked with delight on my hair! She's so sweet and her salon is an environment that I would feel comfortable bringing my girls to get their hair done-cannot say that about many places, unfortunately. Back to my experience-she worked so hard and joyfully on straightening and styling my hair and also gave me something to help a hair issue that * no one* has ever addressed after I've asked. At the end she asked me how much she quoted me the day before and I told her $50-no surprise at the register, no "well you had more hair and it took more work than expected..." That has happen to me more than once and even without explanation. :( Not fun! This salon far exceeded my expectations! So, if you're looking for a hair salon that's interested in keeping your hair healthy without being surprised at the register, in a family friendly environment-Dominican Style on Randleman Road is the place YOU need to go!! I would encourage you to at least give them a try. I don't think you'll regret it & in fact you might not only leave looking & feeling like a new person but you might leave with new friends! :)

I had just moved here and found the website. .which is very very nice. I was given an appointment with Erica and I was the only client that day..as she was working on a day when the salon is usually closed. She was wonderful and I let her do what she recommended. ...cut color highlights. Excellent job...as was the next few appointments. I had always used a certain hairspray for 15 years from LA looks...that was discontinued. So I had been trying all different types to replace it and used Aussie spray recently. ..before my next appointment. I went in and had my hair washed and colored.....when Erica began to cut my hair she stopped and asked.him me if I had recently had an itchy scalp. I said no....she went to the computer and was there for quite awhile. She called her boss over and came back with her boss ..I guess and they began to talk about lice in my hair. The salon was full and in front of everyone. ....they asked.him other stylists to come look at my hair. It became a big scene with them talking loudly and going back and forth between the computer to Google lice pictures. It became really uncomfortable and embarrassing. I kept trying to tell them it was probably stuck on Aussie spray but they all began to treat me like I had Tb. I was asked.him to leave and not return without a doctor note.I felt kind of shocked but paid for the color and left. I still needed a cut and immediately went to another salon not far near the Target store. They. Took me in..I explained the situation. ...one look and the stylist said that's crazy....its dry hairspray and she showed me by scraping it off . Rum z was very nice until this appointment. ..maybe a bit snooty....but really good. I do feel that professionals should know the difference between lice and cheap caked on hairspray. ...and the way it was handled was not professional.
Frustrated that my nail lady moved to another state, I found myself in search of a new location for nail service. After several calls to different shops in the area to see if they did the nail technique that she did; I found FIRST NAIL! I spoke with one of the owners and they advised me they did not do the technique that she performed BUT they had one similar called dip in powder. I explained my frustration and he advised for me to come over and he can show me the process. Upon my arrival I was greeted at the door with a smile and a welcome to first nail. I explained that I just called and who I spoke with. He came right over and showed me the process. TO MY SURPRISE it was very close to what I had. Therefore I went ahead and let him do my nails. As I was there the conversation was great, he asked if I wanted something to drink, and educated me along the way. As long as I have been getting my nails done this is the first time I had someone give me tips on my nails to ensure healthy growth. I was VERY PLEASED with the outcome and will be going back for a long time to come. Oh and by the way they also give you a good bag full of all the items they use on you to bring back to all your appointments #sanitation...LOVE IT!! I hope this long post helps you decide if this is the place for you. Have a blessed day and thanks for reading.
I've been to nail shops, beauty salons, even barber shops none can compare to the precise, clean, fresh look of your brows at the brow lounge. There are I believe 3 women working there I've only experienced Channel. You don't have the "surprised" brow look, or pencil thin crayon look when you are done. No more over plucked overly arched brows. It's a very natural, beauty kinda look. I needed a repair due to a previous stylist over waxing my brows making me look like Ronald McDonald. Channel carefully shaped the brows around the mistake area giving the hair time to return; meanwhile it was filled in to appear full in the missing hair area. I have and will continue to recommend anyone, especially the many of "Ronald McDonald" women I see walking around. It opens your face and gives brightness to your appearance. They also do bikini wax, full & partial eye lashes, lip wax, and a list of many more.
My name is Cynthia K. and my hairstylist at Hairport 77 is Donna Brown, she is the best one there! She always knows my hairstyles I like that she keeps up w/what colors you always use, so she can't be mistaking on them. She's fantastic! The whole shop itself is awesome! They really strive to do their best, it's clean and kid friendly as well. They even have a little boutique inside the shop, where you can shop or just look around while you wait; however, the waiting time is very very minimal! I'm getting ready to move to Raleigh, NC area & believe you me I will still make an appt here at Hairport 77 in Greensboro, NC & will just travel for this, because it's hard to find the best hairstylist around who's personable.
Me and my wife went about 3 yrs ago and it was so calming, relaxing environment, then walked in Terrell Owens (TO) I wanted so bad to ask for a pic with him but the atmosphere was so relaxed and I did not want to ruin his groove. So you know if he goes up in there it's got to be a highly recommended. Only thing I did not like is that I bought a hr massage gift card and wanted a friend to experience this place and they made me pay an extra $10 as they went up on their prices for half hr. in which I had done that before by an hr. and bring a friend to give them more customers and never had that problem, that was the last time I've been. You going to charge me more to bring in clients.?..........
Carlton is the BEST!! I have been going to him for years! I even moved out of the area a few years ago, but I still make the 2 hour trip every 2 months to go see him. I got my best friend going there as well. We always look forward to our trip to Greensboro to see Carlton. We never know what surprise he will try on us next. I fully trust his expert advice and let him do whatever he thinks will look good. (which was cutting off ALL my hair the 1st time I went to him.. and it looked AWESOME!) He is always knowledgable about current trends, styles, and technequies. I would recommend him AS WELL AS his associates to all my friends... and I have! LOYAL CARLTON CLIENT SINCE 2002
While Adaomma is an excellent stylist and did a great job on my daughter's hair, the young lady that does the sew ins is horrible. I paid $125 for a sew in that the wefts were hardly sewn in and you could see my tracks and thread. The closure on top was also horrible. She also did not have braiding hair to braid my cornrows down so I had to get my hair blow dried and then had to go to the hair supply store and buy some. It also took her over 4 and a half hours to do the installation when the website states it takes 3 hours. If you have natural hair and need a hairdresser the owner of the salon is excellent, I endorse her 100% but go elsewhere for a sew in.
Samira did my makeup 3 years ago (eyeliner, lips and brows), I have been so pleased with the results, I get compliments everyday how well I apply makeup and that it stays on(only some of them I tell the real truth ) . She has over 20 years of experience and very professional artist she is. She takes her time to make sure she matches your coloring with the makeup. It has made me feel better about myself . So easy to get up in the mornings ,I am ready to go in no time and even look beautiful while I sleep. It was a painless procedure. I recomend her as the only experienced pernamant makeup artist in our area, with her experience you can't go wrong. Mary
I found out about Samira through a local tattoo shop this summer. I contacted samira right away summer.and we made an appointment s.At first Thought I just get my eyebrows ,then when I saw her portfolio of her work I added eyeliner .I plan on seeing her for corrective on leg scar. Everyone tells about her professionalism and this is so true! She will spend as much time as needed and possible to make sure the client is certain and ready to proceed. I highly recommend anyone who is thinking about permanent makeup. I had eyeliner done previously but it really didn't ever look like what she did for me. Give her a call. You will be very pleased!
