I have been getting my hair braided at Fatou’s for sometime now, and even though I’ve been to other salons in Poughkeepsie, I can honestly say that Fatou and her staff are the best and most professional. Fatou and her staff are excellent, highly skilled, talented, and very creative. Whether you want box braids, cornrows, or kinky twist I always come out looking amazing and I never leave disappointed. I love that Fatou is always accommodating to her customers and that her pricing is always reasonable. I would, and do, recommend Fatou’s salon to anyone who is looking or quality braids and sew-in. You will not be disappointed!!!
I LOVE IT HERE!!! I have crazy, curly, unmanageable hair and over the years, I've had many many different people try (and fail) to cut it. NO SHADE it's just really difficult. BUT some time last year my mom started going to Veronica and the moment I met her I knew she was chill and for the first time in years, I let a professional cut my hair. SHE ROCKED IT!!! Now I only go to her and she cut my hair again today and I LOVE IT!!! Thank you, Veronica, so so much for the cut and never being annoyed when I ask for suggestions. You make me actually excited to get my hair cut, and even though I used to hate my hair short you made me love it!!! You told me today about the bad Yelp review you got so I just wanted to brag to you and everyone about how incredible you are. Thank you for restoring my faith in salons, and for the AMAZING cut.
I've been going to Fatou's for 3 years and I would always get the style I wanted but the last time I visited, this was not the case. I asked for small box braids and showed her pictures before even stepping into the shop and she said ok. So when I go into the shop and gets ready to braid my hair, she asks to see the picture again. I show her again and she does one braid and shows me the size...its a medium width box braid. I told her to take out a little less hair and she did exactly that...she took only like 4 strands out and it is still a medium box braid. I honestly just decided at this point this will be my last time comming into this salon. I dont understand why she asked to look at the picture (which clearly shows small box braids like I asked for) when she just ended up doing what she wanted to. I know I should have spoken up but I just didnt care anymore. The fact that I showed her pictures and asked for small and she still did medium was ridiculous to me. A customer in a past visit went through the same thing I just did but she actually spoke up and told Fatou her problem is that she does not listen very well to customer's requests. Overall, I did enjoy the years I've been going here but now I am going to find a different place. As you see in other reviews, some people never had this problem.I hope this review helps you in your decision to go here or not.
My hair was not done like I wanted it, lady didn’t take her time to make lace front look natural as possible . The sew in was very nice but I just feel like she should have took her time to pluck and make my hair look as natural as possible for the outrageous price I paid I could have gotten it done better other then that atmosphere was fine .
I have been getting my hair braided at Fatou’s for over 5 years now. Fatou and her staff are excellent. Talented, creative and just hands down the best. My box braids always look amazing and I never leave disappointed. I always get tons of compliments on my hair. The salon is clean and stylish and Fatou takes great care in accommodating her customers. Her pricing is also very reasonable. If you are looking for top notch braiding, Fatou’s is the place to go. You will not be disappointed!!!
I love fatou and everyone who works for her she is a great professional woman and I was always welcome in the salon regardless of skin color. I always feel welcome and I sometimes bring my daughter which she never has any problems about. My hair always turns out fantastic and I'm always recieving complements on it. She is also great at getting me in for appointments even last minute! All of the women who work there listen to what I want done and never let me down. I've reccomend this place to many friends and everyone who compliments my hair. I even bring my daughter here tpto get get hair done
I lovee my box braids, Fatou was very fast, very neat, perfect size, perfect length, exactly what i wanted. Excellent service!
DO NOT GO TO VERONICA! It is sad that I've been going to this salon for over 5 years twice a week for the cost of $40 to $160 plus Veronica's cash tip (ranging from $10 through $20 OR MORE each visit in addition to having her come to my home on her days off to do my hair - I would give her $50 cash or more, picked her up from her home and drove her back). My stylist WAS Veronica. Six months ago she chucked my hair only to see it break while she washed it. I always said to anyone and everyone just how much I TRUSTED Veronica and have sent her clients throughout the YEARS. However, I gave her a break six months ago and she gave me a lame story that it was all my surgeries that was causing my hair to break. Bull s!#=_!!! My doctor confirmed yesterday that she had severally caused a burn to my scalp. PICTURES WILL BE ATTACHED OF MY HAIR BREAK ING AND NUMEROUS TOWELS RUINED TWO TOWELS $45 each. When she chunked my hair again just about a month ago, my HAIR AGAIN BEGAN TO BREAK WHILE IN THE SINK. VERONICA BLAMED ANESTHESIA WAS STILL IN MY SYSTEM FROM MARCH, 2014 (IMPOSSIBLE). WHEN I TEXTED HER WITH PHOTOS SHE WAS RUDE AND UNACCEPTABLY UNPROFESSIONAL. ... The problem with her ALWAYS is that she is texting CONSTANTLY, which I never cared .... UNTIL IT EFFECTED HER SERVICED DIRECTLY ONTO ME.
This salon is a woman's get away for a few hours. Home away from home, positive, energized, laid back atmosphere. I love this salon and all the ladies there, they are loving and caring. They not only take care of your hair but they feed your soul.
Don't give you the hairstyle that you asked for and overcharge you for something that you did not even ask
