Loc Retwist
by Ayanna Gholson
Booked this appt a week in advance. I messaged Ayanna when I arrived to the salon and realized she wasnt there (which wasn’t abnormal). She responded,... saying she was out of town and that the salon was closed. I scheduled this the day before a wedding and was completely inconvenienced. I’ve been going to Ayanna for over a year, and honestly was reluctant to write a review. But, I couldn’t believe she handled me this way. Aside from the negligence and not letting me know in advance, the lack of accountability after the fact. She still hasn’t responded to my message shown in the picture. Full transparency shes good at what she does but her customer service is awful. I’ll never sit in her chair again that’s forsure. Show more

Shampoo and Set/ Blow Dry
by Ayanna Gholson
I used this stylist a year ago and bought some hair on her website. But when I got my hair done I decided to just get my natural hair washed and press...ed, which I was satisfied with, even though I did not receive or leave with the hair I purchased. I decided to use her services again and get finger curls, which I loved the end product, but she decided to cut throughout my hair saying it would have a feathered look. I decided to go back to get my natural hair washed and pressed just so I could see the feathered look, but once she blow dried it she stated how uneven my hair was and how someone cut it for a “ feathered” look, which she did, and it wasn’t right, so she cut more of my hair. When I left I could not tell how short my hair actually was until the next day, my length went from my shoulders up to my neck, I looked like a walking chia pet, I am so angry, because all my family asked why did you cut all your hair, which I did not request, and to add insult to injury, my appointment was at 3pm and she let the 12:30 appointment who was almost 3 hours late and showed up during my appointment time get in the chair first, so I had to leave to make it to work on time without my hair getting done. Furious is an understatement for the inconvenience due to me having to come back the next morning after working all night, and losing all my length to my hair. My hair has so many different lengths throughout out, it’s just a mess. I’m only leaving a 1 star because it won’t allow me to submit without leaving a star, other than that no stars should be given. I’m mortified Show more

I’m sorry you feel that way. Curly cuts and Straight cuts follow different rules. Curly cuts are based on the measure a coil/ curly sets (with product) in its curly state; while a straight cut is based on the length of the hair and any split ends or breakage that may be apparent. It sounds like I may not have done a through job of helping you understand that. Also, understanding that previous heat damage from silk presses also plays a significant role in a curly cut as well, may be another reason you feel you lost of length during your cut. I feel I trimmed your hair gradually, first in the curly cut (removing and blending in heat damage) then in the next service once straightened, balancing in breakage and split ends for healthy hair. As a stylist— healthy hair is my #1 priority, above length. Again, I apologize if you feel I cut too much of your length. ❤️❤️❤️. Blessings and healthy hair, Ayanna
