I hate to write a bad review and I would comment on my Senegalese twist experience however this is not what I got. When I arrived at the shop I was told the lady doing my hair could not do these twists and that she could give me box braids. I was very caught off guard by this. I have never made an appointment for something in advanced and then been told when I arrived "oh no you can't get that you should get this". I would have preferred a call canceling the appointment if what I wanted could not be done. I was excited to get a new hair style so I agreed to get the box braids. They look nice right now and are a good length. However Some of the pieces of my hair she used are so small compared to the braid size that I'm constantly concerned about ripping my hair out. Hopefully they last.

This was my first time to get my hair done in micro braids sitting for 12 hrs. was worth it.I really like it and recommend it to others this is the place to go to if you want a good hairstylist.To my stylist Sofia and Sara thank you very much.
The braids were good. She followed my styling. Prices were steep. she didn't quite make my braids thick as i wanted them to be.
