      GOOD NEWS!!! The Grooming Artist Reopens June 1st I hope you’re as excited about this as i am 🤩 As you are... aware we are still battling this pandemic, and because of this I am forced to implement some changes with the way I do business. First and foremost, I ASK FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING with me as I too am adapting to this new way of servicing you. I have implemented some safety methods that ALL clients will need to adhere to. Unfortunately, our “new normal” requires us to follow these guidelines and I need your help🤷🏾 ALL CLIENTS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK(no exceptions) EVERYONE MUST SANITIZE HANDS UPON ENTERING SALON NO GUEST ARE ALLOWED WITH CLIENTS(no waiting permitted) CLIENTS MUST SCHEDULE ALL DESIRED SERVICES(no add on services will be permitted unless time allows...be proactive) ‼️DO NOT COME TO APPOINTMENT IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING ANY COLD SYMPTOMS(you will be asked to leave)‼️ Along with the safety precautions above, The Grooming Artist has implemented some safety measures within the salon as well. Salon shampoo, dryer, waiting, and stylist chairs will be properly disinfected after each client no reuse/sharing of salon capes(each client will have their own cape at time of service) Social distancing at dryers appointment times have been lengthened to make sure there’s no more than 2 clients in the salon at once(one under dryer one in chair) salon will be properly disinfected and sanitized throughout the day as well as at the end of each work day I am looking forward to coming back and getting to work! I don’t think I can fully express how much I truly have missed each of you! These times are the unknown for all of us, so this will definitely take some getting use to on both of our part. If you have a recurring appointment, you will notice some time changes to prevent overlapping of appointments. If the time change doesn’t work for you please call me and we will try to figure out a better schedule for you. To make this all flow seamlessly, I am asking that everyone arrive ON TIME for your appointments. As long as these measures prove to be effective, I will be able to service more clients with the hopes of not having to stretch the schedule any further. Keep in mind, the further I stretch the schedule the less clients I can service, which makes it harder for you to get the desired dates and times. With all that being said and hopefully understood....... THE SCHEDULE IS NOW OPEN‼️🙌🏾 GO AHEAD AND BOOK YOUR NEXT SERVICE Please call or text me with any and all questions or concerns✨💛 ~ Courtney

The funniest hair appointment I’ve been too. Lol. On a serious note, I really appreciated my experience, from the consultation to the actual styling appt. Courtney was friendly and humble about her work and very transparent around what to expect. T...here were no surprise fees or upselling. I also learned a lot about what I can do to take care of my myself, my locs and what my hair needs to thrive and grow. I’ll definitely follow up for a retwist and hopefully get my locs styled one day once they are long enough.

If you got time, stay. If not keep on scrolling. My appointment was at 12:15 and I arrived pretty early. I sat in my car until about 12:12. I got there, rang the buzzer and got no answer. Surely someone was in there, right? At about 12:17 I was sti...ll out there trying to get in. Finally someone had come out and I went in once they cleared the doorway. I was a little disappointed to see that she was on a call. I honestly thought she was talking to a friend. I was thinking to myself, dang, she can't tell her she'll call her back. Then I kind of heard the nature of the conversation and realized she was talking to a customer. I was instantly thinking to myself, oh she's one of those double bookers. I stayed though because I'd seen her work on Instagram and had been following for a minute. Needless to say there was a slight mix up. Courtney did look a little confused when I got there because she thought that the lady that was on the video chat was her 12:15. The call lasted about another three minutes. Courtney apologized about the mix up a couple of time and thanked me for being patient. The service that I received after the fact, honestly I would've waited longer. I'm glad didn't have to though. It was a mix-up. Things happen. Not a big deal. The consultation was the best I've ever had. She asked me questions that I'd never been asked. She took notes. You read that right, she took NOTES. Who takes notes in a consult? Courtney. She read them back to me to make sure that we were on the same page. The atmosphere was amazing. A nice quaint comfortable space. From the pictures I thought the space would be bigger. However, I'm happy it's smaller than expected. That means that only you and her will be in there. Can't beat that with a bat. She asked for permission to touch my hair before touching my hair. I loved that she did that even though I expected her to touch my hair to get a feel for what we'd be working with. She washed her hands first and asked. (insert bulging eye emoji) She told me flat out that she was going to allow me to take pictures of the products that she used. She whipped them out and I took picture after picture. She even told me where I could get them. If you've been loc'd as long as I have then you know that these stylists aren't in a sharing mood when it comes to their products. What I thought was breakage/shedding from dye (which could have very well attributed to it) I found out that the fact I literally just finished breastfeeding less that 6 weeks ago, that could very much so be the main problem. How come no one talks about stuff like this? So not only did I have the post partum shed I also had the breastfeeding shed as well. She gave me information/ingredients about a protein treatment. She sat there, read them off and sent them to me. Did I mention she was a dope ass individual? The style that I want (cut my locs, have them reattached and a different part pattern) would be $600 and she required half of the payment at least 2-3 weeks prior to coming. I'm getting this done in February of next year. I didn't want to leave. I was having a good time learning and chatting it up with her. Before I headed out she apologized again. Told me the next time I got there early to just call her, since I had her number now (from the text messages she sent) and we'd get the ball rolling. I'm super excited for my haircut and even more excited that I didn't have to travel far for someone to do my hair like I wanted it done. She has a bunch of candy. She offered me some before I left. As I was leaving, I got to the front door and decided I needed to take a picture with this dope soul. She was perfectly fine with it. Generally I'm uncomfortable with asking for pictures. However, her vibe was so welcoming I felt extremely comfortable to ask for one. Courtney if you get a chance to read this, although I don't see why you wouldn't. You're dope!

Courtney was amazing! This was hands down the best experience I have since I started my locs. She sets up a great atmosphere and she is very passionate about her craft.

I had a great experience. This was my first appointment with The Grooming Artist and she created a very professional and welcoming environment. I appreciate the fact that she asked for permission before touching my hair. I also love that she showed m...e the products she’ll be using on my hair and allowed me to take pictures of the products in case I want to research them. She is very knowledgeable about her craft and had insightful responses for all of my questions. I’m looking forward to my starter loc appointment.

I really love the way Courtney takes care of my hair. She even took sometime out of her own time to squeeze in a style for my birthday because I didnt book it. It was my first style in almost 2 years of my loc journey and she nailed it. I am so grate...ful for her. She is professional and very kind. I cant wait for my next appointment with her. She is definitely the person you want to see to get your locs hooked up.
