It was great! MiMi was fast at braiding, very friendly and listen to what I wanted. She made me feel welcomed and comfortable. She even helped me make up my mind as to what style I should get. I wanted a style to last for months so she suggested the Senglese twist. Her price is very reasonable with no hidden extra fees. She also asked me if it was okay for a second person to help her finish my hair. I liked that she asked me first instead of just putting someone on my hair. Judith was the person who helped MiMi and Judith was a sweet heart as well. I highly recommend anyone to this shop. The only thing I wasn't a fan off was that MiMi had her 18month older with her at the shop. She is a doll and was minding her self but of course after so long babies can become inpatient when they are sleepy or hungry so that's where the baby started crying and was extremely fussy. MiMi still held her professionalism and worked on my head. Unfortunately at a point she had to take a small break to tend to the baby. Other than that if you want your hair done at an affordable price while also looking nice, don't hesitate to go to MiMi's African Braiding Salon 😉I will do another review at a later time to let you all know how long my braids lasted.

I absolutely love this Salon! It is very professional, clean, and Mimi is the best at what she does! My 4 daughter's love coming here!! They offer snacks and drinks, Wi-Fi and a comfortable atmosphere! It is quiet and relaxing. My kids even use the Wi-Fi to do their homework while getting their done. I would recommend this place to everyone!
If I could give zero stars I would. I called Mimi early Monday morning before her shop even opened to ask about her availability. Mimi made me feel confident in her skills, so I scheduled an appointment for that same day. When I arrived at the salon, Mimi greeted me a few minutes later and began detangling my hair with another lady. Everything was going fine until another client showed up. Mimi stopped working on my braids so she could work on another girl's hair. At some point, I had her mom and a friend doing my hair, and a 3rd woman stopped by the shop with her baby to help. That's when things went downhill. I wasn't thrilled about having 3 sets of hands working on my hair, but what bothered me the most was how unsanitary the women were. They would eat and then put their hands in my hair. The woman with the baby kept walking over to a counter to split up pieces of chicken and fries to give her child, then she'd pick the tossed food off the floor, and walk back over to me and put her hands all over my head. That's not the worst part! She took her baby to a back room to change her diaper—and once she was done, she came back over to where I was seated and started braiding my hair! I almost screamed! Instead, I tried to keep my composure and asked politely if they had hand sanitizer to use. Only one of the women ended up using it to clean her hands, but it seemed like she was upset because I asked. I was just starting to calm down and trying to push my unpleasant experience in the back of my mind, when I noticed one of the kids who had been walking around barefoot, rolling over on my jacket and kicking it. All the while, Mimi and the other women carried on a conversation in their language, barely engaging with me, their client. Did I mention that her mom sneezed right on me without covering her mouth? Or apologizing? Needless to say, after 10 hours of sitting in the salon's chair, I left with braids that looked nothing like the picture I showed the stylists.
Very lovely and knowledgeable lady . kind and soft-spoken, very good at what she does. Welcoming environment, nice quiet helper. Would definitely recommend and go back.African collection X-pression is very good hairs. She used for me. I love it.
This place burned my daughter on the neck with that hot water the dip the braids in. And then when I came back the next day. The owner of this place said that the burn wasn't there when we left. So she not going to take no responsibility for her employee burning my baby. She didn't have a towel round her neck.
This was a first time getting braids outside my normal stylist, well I'm very happy I choose Mimi's! She was very gentle with me and very knowledgeable about my service. I will return as my go to braiding salon! Little Grace was a plus! Thanks Mimi!
it was the worst she did not listen to the hairstyle I wanted and I had a picture up the whole time and she still didn't listen she did what she wanted.
New in town and needed a cut on short notice. Platinum was very accommodating and Kena gave a very good scissor cut as I requested. I plan to go back before I leave town
