Skilled, fast and friendly. Takes care of me and offers advice for my hair and style. I love Shayla!
I really enjoyed the few hours I spent with Shayla. She was very courteous of my time and her attention to detail is emaculant. I recommend her servic...es. Show more
Late for appointment. Changed rate half way through service, then yelled, cursed, slapped hands in my face, through my purse across the room, and thre...atened violence rather than have a discussion with me about the rate change and a compromise. Show more
Hair looked good. I will say, she braided our hair with Kanekalon and it isn't staying in like I thought it would. I have thick hair and NEVER need ha...ir added. Also, she didn't leave a lot of our edges out so the hair is tugging on those and it's not a good look. I normally am able to leave crotchets in for about three months but these will be coming out soon. She's a nice person, and I enjoyed her while we were there. I just am not liking the way the hair is. Show more
Absolutely love them! Always happy with my hair, quality work! Thanks again <3
She’s kind, courtesy and professional, I recommend her and she been doing my hair for years
Shala has a beautiful personality, she is personable and gifted at doing hair, she aims to please and she is well organized which makes getting your h...air done with her a pleasant experience. Show more

Absolutely would recommend her! I showed her a picture of the braids I wanted and she over excelled! I love them!
My braids are neat but not to tight! Perfect!
Awesome always!!!
Excellent hair, excellent service!
Took a pic in for reference, she gave me the exact look I wanted for small plats. She and her co-worker worked fast and neat.
Having two to a head gets me in and out in the shortest possible time. The high quality of work that Shala and Janna do, the environment, and the pric...e, is why I've been a loyal client since I met them. Show more
Shala is amazing! Not only does she provide quick, reliable, and professional service, but she takes pride in making clients feel comfortable with her... pleasant and fun-loving nature. I will be back!!! ( : Show more
