Not good at following instructions. Had my first experience with braiding here. Was quoted a price based on the size of braids that I requested. They did a larger braid stating that because my hair was shorter and had broken some, I couldn't get the small braids. I said that was fine. I told them that I had purchased a bun that I wanted to use and did not want the hair extensions to be used as a bun. I was told that the hair extensions were supposed to be long and that I could fit the bun on top. I asked several times that they do not make a bun from the extensions. (I wanted to be able to reach my scalp to scratch it or oil it if I needed to. I have itchy scalp and dandruff problems and wanted to be able to reach my scalp.) Instead they created a bun with the extensions and sewed the extensions together so that I cannot reach my scalp and I cannot fit the bun over it. When they finished, they charged me $20 more than the price that was quoted to me for the size of the braids that I got. I told them the price that I was quoted and they said that the person who quoted me the price told them that I was to be charged the higher price. I told them that the higher price was based on the smaller size braid and they argued with me. I finally paid them because I got tired of them yelling.) This may have been a communication error due to language barriers; but I would rather pay a higher price and go to a place where the quoted price and the ending price are the same. They were speedy and the quality was fine. Just not what I wanted but what they wanted.
I went to A Natural Affair on last Saturday for my big chop. My appointment was at 12, but I got a call just before 10 asking if I could come on in. I did inform them that I was just getting ready, and it was going to take me a while because I was coming from Southaven. However, I arrived about 15 to 20 mins after 11. It was still 12:00 before I was seen. The lady that washed my hair didn't take the time to do a good wash. It felt as if she just put the shampoo in my hair and washed it back out, put conditioner in it and put me under the dryer. I only made my appt. for the big chop because I didn't know what I wanted done, but I know I didn't want an afro. I decided to get coils, and Stephanie told me she had to see if she had time because she had another client. She did make the time after stopping on my hair to do the other persons hair. It was 4:00 before I left the salon. I love all the ladies in the salon, the atmosphere is great, I just feel like I shouldn't have been there that long, and especially since I came early, and to top it off I am still cutting relaxed hair off. That's what I went to the shop for! I will be returning because no business is great all the time, I just thought I would make them aware of the situation to keep it from happening in the future.
I had a wonderful experience! I received a consultation before my appointment, that allowed me to be educated about the current state my hair was in and they suggested options that would best fit my hair in its current state. My stylist was great and she styled my hair in a timely manner. I have been searching for a salon that caters to natural hair and I found this place. I am very pleased and I recommend this salon if you have decided to start your natural hair journey. The owner was fun and she made sure everyone was taken care of and interacted. She is avalible to her staff and gives positive energy to the clients. I will be scheduling again soon for services!!!!!!!
I have been coming to Aisha's braid shop for a couple of years. Every style I have showed them has been duplicated to perfection. All of the sisters are experienced and fast. When I go there it doesn't even matter which one is selected to braid me up....each one is out right gifted. I have never lost a braid and my hair grows and grows and grows. They make sure u are comfortable and super nice. I recommend this braid shop to all of my family and friends and I will continue to go everytime I want my hair braided. Aisha's African Braid Shop is the #1 braid shop in Memphis!!
The shampoo girl was kinda lazy, she did not was my hair worth craps. Next the young lady that did my hair did not do what I asked her to do. The hair style turn out good but I want what I want for $70 in this economy. I wish the stylist had have accessed my hair to see if it needed an dandruff treatment or a trim at least. Also, she was really rough with my natural hair. As a stylist specializing natural hair rule 101 is that natural hair is fragile and must be handed with care.
My daughter and I have been coming to Hawa for the past 3 years and we LOVE IT! :-) Contrary to the two poor review, we love the work and their attitudes of the young ladies that work with Hawa. She too is a sweetheart who believes in providing good quality service to her clients. I think it is important to know that when she came to this shop 5 years ago, the previous owner ironically enough, had the same same as the current owner. I guess Hawa is a popular African name. :-)
I love love love love this place. This was my first time visiting the shop and this will not be my last. These professional stylist have created a warm and loving environment. I felt right at home. I have a head full of thick shoulder length natural hair. Mrs. Takeisha was able to tame my tresses with no harm to my tender head, not to mention my hair is FIERCE. Let me stop bc I could go on for days. If you're looking for a TRUE natural stylist, this is the place to be!
The ladies that did my hair were very friendly. Two negatives 1) they don't run air just fans, so make appointments for early in the morning to avoid being too hot. 2) if multiple ladies are on your head & you're feeling your scalp being tugged at, request not to tight. Reason being is one side of my head I can barely lay on because it's SUPER tight!! I love my braids, but I can't sleep...
Went in yesterday for box braids and my hair turned out gorgeous!!! I was a little skeptical but now I have found me a new braiding home! Eveline the owner was so nice and polite. Everyone also was professional and my braids are so neat. Only complaints is that it took almost 12 hrs for box braids and I thought I would have 2 people on my head. Other than that everything was perfect!
