I worked womens retail as store manager and district manager for 20+ years, have since become stay at home mom. I typically don't step foot into stores, i get quickly frustrated with messy unorganized stores and when there not enough staff to handle lines at registers, i usually wool find a manager to ask to open a register but many times put my stuff down and leave so do most shopping on line... however i discovered this store about 5 years ago. The prices are incredible for top brands and styles they have. The store seems pretty well maintained and merchandised well to highlight new product. Yes at times, some of the team are not the nicest or helpful but I'm a shopper who will ask when i need assistance and they usually are very helpful. Not everyone going be on their A game all the time. And i have heard some pretty rude customers they have deal with. I like the store cause not crazy busy where i can take my time try on. There are few girls super nice one is a manager, always helps me...I had seen few negative reviews on here and rarely write one but wanted store get some credit for the things they do right. I was a fixer of underperforming stores so traveled all over, I'm from south originally so know lots different personalities on Brooklyn. Only constructive criticism i have is to open second register when line gets 3 or more and hard to get someone to come open a fitting room, but i usually find one open which im sure not best scenario from loss prevention standpoint. I've sent many friends there and even my friends from out state want to go there instead century!!
I have been going to La Linda's since last month. I went on the recommendation of two of my friends. Apparently, I wasn't in the loop about Linda! I wanted a full head of weave. Linda and her staff treated me very well on day 1, and I will continue giving them my business. They are professional and very courteous. They are under the tutelage of Linda, who knows her stuff! The salon, in my opinion, promotes and celebrates womanhood. In the truest sense of Black beauty salons, we talk about everything under the sun! There's tv to watch, music to listen to, and nice and decent people to converse with. My weave, one month later, is still in great shape. I can't stop singing her praises. I am happy to provide this small neighborhood business with my money...I live in Suffolk County and I STILL make the trek every two weeks into Brooklyn!
I have been going to La Linda for four years. My experience at La Linda is absolutely exceptional, I was referred to La Linda by a dear friend of mine and ever since then I never looked back I'm talking about the treatment as a whole is always a top notch. Great professional staff that treats your hair with the very best care...and here's the kicker I save 45% on a sew-in every time, 45%, which means with money I save, I can afford to treat myself to a manicure and pedicure, how cool is that! Thanks La Linda. You rock.
