    Drove a hour to get to my appt which was at 12, arrived about 15 min early, and realized the salon was closed. I peeked inside and even knocked on the door and no one was there. So I sat in my car giving him time to get there cuz I was early. After s...itting in my car for 45 min, i walked back to the salon to see if it was opened and it was still closed, salon dark as hell, obviously no one was in there. My only way to contact him was thru Instagram so I messaged him and no response. I called my friend who referred him to me and had her contact him and he still never answered. She gave me his number so I text him and no response. So after waiting a hour and half, (not including the 15 min from when I got there early), i decided to leave. After heading back home to Providence, he calls and asks where am I cuz he’s there and been there waiting on me. I was so confused cuz I was there waiting on him and he never showed up. So he went on to tell me he doesn’t think I was really there or I was at the wrong place cuz he was there since 6 am and was able to do 3 clients hair within that time. After me telling him I was there and how long I waited and what I did to verify the salon being closed, he stated I should have knocked loudly cuz he had the music on while doing his clients hair. Again, the salon was dark as hell, and I did knock but obviously no one was there nor did I hear music playing in the salon. He continued to go back and forth with me about him not believing I was really there so he then asked me to come back the next morning at 9am. I agreed only because I needed my hair done. So the next morning before leaving home, I text him a lil after 8am just to confirm that he was at the salon already and if not, that he will be there. He didn’t respond so I called him like he suggested the day before and he did not answer. Thankfully I did not leave my home and head towards the salon. He then text me back almost 2 hours later saying “sorry boo I’m a lil busy”. That was it for me, i did not respond but definitely decided at that point he is not the stylist for me.

    He is an amazing person but he always over books himself. You never get taken at your appointment time. My appointment was at 1pm and I was suppose to be done at 2:35pm as it says on my appointment confirmation and I wasn’t started into about 2pm the...n once I was start I had to wait and I had another appointment at 4pm that he mad me late for. It’s just unprofessional and my hair didn’t even come out right at all and all very disappointed in the service.

    Ok.....this review is gonna be long so bare with me.....Long story short, If u want healthy hair avoid this place at all cost. I personally do not understand the five star reviews . I feel like I got the complete opposite of what every one on here e...xperienced.. Anyone can pull, tug , slay and lay a weave and not care of the damage done but if you do that to real hair you gonna be straight up bald. Just because hair may look healthy in pictures does not necessarily mean that it is. If u want people cussing like sailors, being unprofessional and unwelcoming then YES go to this salon. We're all grown but when running a business , there's a certain level of professionalism that is expected by both the client and stylist. I've been here a few times for trims only so I never really had my hair styled until a few weeks ago.. I shouldnt have returned after dealing with prior examples of unprofessional behavior but I was curious to see how he styled hair, especially because of all the great things I read about him. I wanted to love this place like everyone else but using a small tooth comb to detangle my hair is a big no no. My hair is already short, I'm not trynna be scoop bald. Being rough while washing my hair is definitely going to have me with no edges and uneven hair. Gone are the days of being ignorant of taking care of hair. As a professional he should at least know using a small tooth comb will result in major damage to strands. ( instead he should have detangled my hair utlizing moisturizing shampoo, hydrating conditioner and a WIDE tooth comb ) My hair is currently dry , thin and lifeless from all that combing. I'm not exactly sure how peoples REAL hair are thriving and GROWING from these practices but somebody on Booksy is LYING !!!!!!!!!!!! lol. Whichever the case for people returning is not a reflection of MY experience. As a result, I will NOT be returning. I personally didn't speak up because I assumed my hair was gonna come out just as people described on Booksy and have been searching high and low for a great hairstylist in Boston . Beauty is pain right? NO!......And I also think I was in disbelief that I trusted these reviews. I knew I should've left once he wipped out that freaking small tooth comb but I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt. Smh.. Someone mentioned he did a horrible hair cut and he had cancelled appointments. Pay attention to reviews like this. I understand everyone's hair is different but being unprofessional is unacceptable regardless of how many positive reviews are given. My opinion clearly does not reflect everyone elses. It's ultimately your choice to experience the "hairking" for yourself......

    I arrived 10 min before my appointment and waited for 30 min but the salon was still closed. I made several calls which no one picked. He called me after about 40 min to tell me that he was sick and asked if I could go back tomorrow!...
