First, let me say that they are no Ionger on N 2nd St. Ok, so...I had the stylist RE-DO my hair (box braids) due to hair starting to unravel where the braids ended and the curls began. After going home and looking at the hair, she did the same thing, which meant that the braids would unravel soon, which they did. In addition, she went and bought me some of the most HORRIBLE looking hair that looked much like dreds which didn't when I looked down at them while she was braiding. I had to return to the salon and she once again did not secure the braids to prevent unraveling. I went on their website and contacted the owner wth my displeasure and never got a response. That's not good business. I believe the stylist and the owner are friends and she put friendship ahead of busness. I got no.."I'm sorry that happened..."I'll talk to the stylist"...nothing! This in my opinion is just as bad as what the stylist did. I kept that mess in my hair for 5 weeks since I did pay over 200.00 for it, so I wasn't wasting my money like that. I just wound up wearing scarves or headbands to hide it. She also lost out on a couple of customers. I have a friend who was going to get her hair done and treat her granddaughter, but after they saw that mess...they was like:"No, thanks...I'll go elsewhere!" Like their name, the job that was done was indeed: BAD!
this place is a mess. they are rude. roaches all over the place. bamba smells and she messy. I watched customers come in and they were rude to them when they ask basic questions about their services and pricing. they set appts and have you sitting for an hour.
I made an appointment for 8:30 a.m. and I was not done until 8:00 p.m. for box braids. I got the impression that the owner was more concerned about getting as many customers as she could instead of taking care of the ones who came into the shop early in the morning.When I expressed my concerns the women started downing me in their native language. Anyone who gets their hair braided understands what I mean. We may not know what they are saying, but we understand they are talking about us. They made sure they helped each other, but refused to help my braider. She had to braid my hair all by herself for twelve hours.They also had the air that you are just a black woman who needs braids and we are superior Africans so deal with it. Again if you get your hair braided you know what I mean.Just giving my experience.
I have been a customer of Essences over 10 years. Dionne has always handled my hair professionally. Helping me through my transition to natural after years of relaxers broke off a good amount of my hair. Every picture I send her the style is created beautifully. She is honest when a style does not suit my face or is not proper for my hair texture, by suggesting alternative styles. Now my hair is healthy and I still go to her several times a year and get touch ups.
A very clean pleasant environment. Styles salons beautiful ladies are very nice to you in a very upstanding and respectful way. I will be back very soon For my next hair due. I got sengeles twist with havana hair so I think I'll get a sew in next. And they will be getting me together. Keep up the great work ladies. See you soon.
My hairstyle was neat and beautiful! The atmosphere was intimate and the conversation was engaging. My stylist was awesome
I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone! I got $200 Senagalese and by the 2nd week braids were sliding out, also the middle of my hair was much larger than than the outside..I Qua's very displeased with their work and won't be goin back
Amazing! The owner and her assistant are great very efficient. The prices are reasonable and the environment is very comfortable and cozy.
