VERY COSTLY MISTAKE! I decided to give this salon a try based on the good ratings. I made an appointment with the owner for SMALL BOX BRAIDS, and arrived as scheduled. I ended up waiting approximately 30 minutes for another lady to arrive. Upon her arrival, she began working on my hair without even introducing herself. I showed her a picture of the size I wanted. Shortly after starting on my hair, she left to go to the store to get a bottle of water because her back was hurting. That took about another 10-15 minutes. I paid the $200 that I was charged and even tipped the lady. On day 5, I lost a braid from the back. I then inspected my hair all over and noticed the back braids were loose and far larger than I requested. I notified the owner, who offered to fix my hair. With that being my only day off, and having a prior engagement, I was unable to make it. She offered me a discount for the next visit. It's now day 11. I have lost 5 braids. I am about ready to cut them all out. $200 is a lot to pay for a shabby job! I appreciate the offer to fix my hair, but she was aware that I work 6 days a week. I should NOT have to drive from Brandon to fix anything that should have been done right the first time. I paid $200 for a $40 back porch style! As a business owner myself, I would make my customer happy, not inconvenience them. A partial refund would have been nice! I hope the $200 + tip blessed them both. I'll take a loss for this one, but I will not be going back. I wish I could post pics of this expensive mess! Lesson learned! On a positive note, she has a beautiful, talented daughter who kept me entertained with her performnces!

The sisters were very professional and honest. They were not trying to get a fees bucks but instead gave advise to what will suit your hair type best. My hair came out looking so beautiful.

My hair was excellent. I felt very uncomfortable due to the shop was DIRTY, DIRTY, DIRTY, DIRTY. Also, the cleaning guy was strange, staring and talking to himself. The worker was talking very loud in their language.

I had a bittersweet experience with this shop. Because although my braids turned out amazing, and the owner was so nice and courteous to me, the waiting process was long. When I got there, there were other two ladies before me. But really it was my bad judgement.. I'll make sure to be on appointment next time.

It's all about the Benjamin's with this shop. I had so much hair I could not make a pony tail. The owners response was you can keep it in a bun. Who pays $150 to wear a bun for 2mths. Bus card says satisfaction guaranteed. Lies. I requested to have less hair used in the beginning. Once she was paid, what ever I said didn't matter. It's unfortunate because it's the return customer that carries the business. I will not return..,,I will be finding a new shop.

Just a moment...
