I've been going to Nina for more than 9+ years. I love this place! Not only is the service amazing, but you can feel the family atmosphere as soon as you step in! Clean shop, respectable women, and amazing hair styles. I've been to other places but none has lived up to the standards of this hair salon! I recommend it!

My sister and I both have gone at different times and we both said NEVER AGAIN!! They are sooo slow and even a little rude. Not worth the money they charge. Very unprofessional and unfriendly.

THIS WOMAN SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HERSELF!!! I AM SICK OF AFRICANS COMING OVER HERE AND TRYING TO TAKE ALL THE BUSINESS WITH SOME SERVICES THEY KNOW THEY DON'T REALLY KNOW HOW TO DO. DREADS FOR EXAMPLE. I WENT THERE TO GET MY LOCS LATCHED AND IT TOOK OVER 5 HOURS WITH TWO PEOPLE ON MY HEAD AND IT NORMALLY TAKES SOMEONE A LITTLE OVER 2!!! WHEN I ASKED WHY SHE WAS SO SLOW, SHE STATED, WELL WE DON'T DO DREADS EVERYDAY SO WE NOT AS FAST AS SOMEONE ELSE!! AND THEN SHE STARTED TALKING IN FRENCH TO THE OTHER WOMEN ABOUT ME, ASSUMING I DIDN'T KNOW FRENCH. LOL "C'EST LE PIRE MAGASIN, JE N'AI JAMAIS E'TE'!!!

Good deal, good business

I was curious about nina hair braiding and called to get my hair done. The day I got there I asked nina herself to get my hair done. Final result? Gorgeous my boy friend said. :) I wanted to share my experience. The place deserve credits :)

They'll do a good job

Okay, I hope this review helps. They do a great job doing hair. With my first visit, I feel like it took a lot longer than it should have. I was very happy with the finished work but it was definitely more costly than some other braiding shops.

Never going again.

The shop was dirty. The staff were not only late but unfriendly. I also asked for my hair to be done a certain way and even said I would pay them extra, and they still would not do as I asked. Also I was over charged. NOT worth the money.

NINA AKOU'S BRAID AND HAIR DESIGN

I started out with Nina's sister-in-law years ago before Nina. Nina was fine at first but the bigger her clientele became, the worse her service got. I would go to her house and sit all day and night. Instead of having two braiders to get customers in and out, she would have one young girl stay on each person's head which meant you had to sit up to 10 or 11 hours. People are busy and don't have time to take off work and dedicate a whole day to getting micros. They sit in your ear speaking French all day which is very annoying!! Then Nina moved to Arnold Street from her house and it got worse. I wanted cornrows for my daughter which they stated cost $50. I wanted the cornrows slanted to the side and they stated that would be $60. It was the exact same amount of cornrows but just slightly slanted. I stopped going completely after that. There are so many braiders everywhere now that braid your hair faster and treat you better. I refuse to beat out of my money from anyone. I know so many people who stopped going to Nina. She should see that she really fell off and try to figure out why. She's very arrogant so she probably doesn't even realize that her faithful customers are long gone. I don't mind paying for my hair so I don't have to deal with poor customer service!!

Best place everr !

Nina akou is the best braiding shop in greensboro. I've been to alot of hair salons and most of them are dirty and have rude employees. At nina's they have the CLEANEST bathrooms and the shop its self is extremely clean. I love the way that they ask me every few mins. if im okay and if i need anything. They make you comfortable.
Also i loved the job. I payed 180.00 and got the best job ever !
I the braids were perfects!
it was small everywhere including the middle.
I recommend alot of family and friends to go over there...they also LOVED it.

Thank you Nina = )

Nina Akou's African Hair Braiding

The workers at Nina Akou's does great hair and have you leaving the shop looking good and feeling a little peeved. I received Kinky Twist and my experience was a horrible one. The person that I had coughed and sneezed, didn't use any hand sanitizer. Then when the owner joined the room it got very loud. They were laughing so loud that I could hear them over my Ipod. The lady laughed high pitched in my ear, clapped in my ear, and was leaning on my shoulder to laugh like we were buddies. I have never been to an African Hair Braider and it took them 8 hours to do Kinky Twists, If I would have known that it was going to take that long then I would have gotten Micro Braids. Well anyway at the end where they roll the ends of the hair the lady burned the back of my head and was upset because I wouldn't lean further into the boiling hot water. I told her no, because you are burning the back of my neck. Well anyway I spent 180 dollars in there an I am happy with my hair but not the experience. I would have rather went to dirty old Jainde Fatma on Thomasville Rd in Winston-Salem. That is the only reason that I didn't go there because of the appearence, so I drove all the way to Greensboro for an even worse day! To each it's own!
