I went to Patricia on 3/18/2014 to braid my hair, and was EXTREMELY pleased with the results! I found her through Google, so this was the first time I went to her. I chose her because the reviews on YP were very positive. On the phone, she was very polite and friendly. I was not sure what I wanted, so Patricia helped by pricing different options and then showing me the hair, and pictures of what my selected style would look like. The shop is very neat, and she works SUPER fast! She aims to NOT take any breaks, so she can finish fast, but the braids are VERY neat! Also, her bookings are spaced enough, so that you do NOT have to wait. She's really sweet and very likable, not to mention, she's very affordable; moreover, her hands are very gentle on your hair. I was able to actually sleep on my hair on the first night without ANY pain, and it still looks neat a couple of weeks later. I had been going to a braider I really like (for 10 years) but she is rather far (Gaithersburg) and I decided it was time to get someone closer (Baltimore). I was hesitant to switch; however, after this wonderful experience, I am sold, and will definitely be returning to Patricia. I VERY HIGHLY recommend Patricia! P.S: I have posted pictures of my hair (see picture #41 - 44 in the YP Gallery).
OMG...Patricia and Bibianne put my senegalese twist on fleek. I had received a bad braid job and because of these two ladies, I can enjoy my new braid style. when I initally got my braids around June 21st, they were already raveling apart within a two week time frame. The bad braid job hurt so bad, I could not sleep and no one could think about touching my hair. Patricia and Bibianne we're so gentle it did not hurt. In addition, I was placed in to such a warm environment with their company. Patricia makes her own hair pomade that keeps your scalp from itiching, which was a plus, of course, I had to have one. I am so glad others gave such excellent reviews, which landed me to her shop. Patricia and Bibianne does excellent work together, plus they are christians another added bonus. I finally found me a great braiding salon to keep my braids on fleek. Patricia and Bibianne you have a new customer for as long as you continue to do braids. Excellent job ladies!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place!! All 24 "5 star" reviews are so true! Patricia is one of the nicest, sweetest spirits I have ever met! The environment is VERY clean, relaxing, and nice!! As for her braiding skills--she gets a definite 10!! EXCELLENT!! Here is the best part, if requested (as I did), she WILL NOT braid your edges! Also, the braids are not too tight. She constantly gives you a mirror or takes pictures as she is braiding so you can see what she is doing. She also asks if anything is too tight. If you say one is, she will redo it! NO KIDDING! My braids lasted for a long time and she ensures that you are HAPPY! I have been to many salons, and she is the best! I've been to her twice. I had such a hard time finding the "right place" , but when I read these reviews, I decided to give it a try, and every positive review is totally true! You will not be disappointed! Go to Patricia!
I went to this salon to get my hair braided the braids looked great but hurt like nobodies business. At the time when I was getting the braids done I told the sytlist that she was braiding too tight she said "sorry" but continued the process, with each new braide I would say can you do it looser and she would say "sorry". Once my hair was done I felt lile I had had a facelift, my scalp became very RED and I felt as if I was being stabbed in my head with needles. I called the salon for help and was told that everyones scalp reacts differently to the process which I could understand I asked for my scalp to be looked at by the owner she told me that she would not be available and that I should give the braids more time. Time for what more hair loss...SMH I WILL NOT BE RETURNING TO THIS SALON AGAIN AND BE WARE OF GOING THERE YOURSELF TOO TIGHT BRAIDS DAMAGE YOUR HAIR!!!!!!
Fabulous! That's how I felt when I left the shop this morning. I couldn't wait to share my experience with everyone. I called the day before I wanted an appointment and she booked my appointment and I asked how early I could come and she said 8:30AM. I paused she asked me how early do I want to come and I said 8:00am. she agreed and I explained that if she was going to be late that she would be there by 8:30am. She texted me in the am and told me she would be there on time and in fact we got there at the same time. The shop is nice and she makes good use of the space. Neat and very kind service. She did exactly what I wanted her to do and she had an assistant prepared to take over when another appointment arrived. I was so pleased with the services and attention to detail. I will definitely go back again and again. Thanks Ms Patricia. I feel Fabulous.
I am so glad I found Patricia's shop!!!! Her shop is the best I've ever gone to and she provides a very comfortable and friendly environment while your there. I agree strongly with other reviewers...it does not hurt and she is fast. Her braids are excellent. She even put my Senegalese twist in a bun when she finished. I also love and appreciated how she moisturized my scalp with an organic hair grease as she braided. She is the best hands down and I highly recommend to everyone/anyone for any type of braids. Thank you Patricia and Jessica :)
This was my first time getting braids in 7 years, and by a whole different person. I decided to get medium box braids with 2 streaks of color in 22 inches. Came to $180, which is pretty good! The woman who did my hair came 30 minutes later than my scheduled time, but she made up for it by doing an amazing job! It took about 5 hours to get it done. A lot of people I know have commented on my braids, so I definitely referred them to Patrica's. I will go back next time I want braids!
For my Girls This was the first time I have been to Patricia’s. I am from a part of the county that does not have ANY black hair salons. I found her in the Yellow Pages online. She and Miss. Tina were so great with my girls and fast. They braided all three of their hair in less than 5 hours. They have received so many compliments, I given out all of my business cards. I will be back to get my hair done soon.
This is my fourth time coming to Patricia I love this shop I will be coming here whenever I need my hair done Patricia is a very nice during my second time going to her she ordered food for everyone not to mention my hair looks good as ever she keeps everything at a consistent size and length but most importantly her prices are super affordable and I should know I'm a college student and every penny counts.
I got Patricia's African Hair Braiding contact from a coworker her hair was done neatly and the price my coworker said she paid was affordable. When I went to this shop the Parking was free the shop was clean and smelled good. Free wifi use when my tablet battery when off the shop let me use their Ipad my experience was great. I recommend everyone to give Patricia's African Hair Braiding a try
