"I went to Ayanna for a consultation for a formal hair stlye. I had no idea where to begin. Ayanna was great in her recommendations, and I set-up an appointment for her to do my hair. All I can say is WOW! Ayanna did my hair for my Vow Renewal Ceremony, and I received so many compliments. I have very long locs. She colored them, trimmed them, repaired a few that were damaged, and gave me a great up-do style. I already had two friends ask for her number. She's great!"

"Ayanna is very professional with really pleasant disposition - made my long appointment bearable! She was focused on making me happy, didn't rush to get me out even when it went long and did great work! End result was very good!!"

"She was superb! She twisted my hair in a timely fashion, I was done in less time than initially posted. Truly a wonderful experience. Also, she is a great hair consultant on what products are truly needed for your hair type. She really does go over the top for her patients!"

"Ayanna went above and beyond! I came in to get my dreads combed out and not only did she do any amazing job but she stayed late and finished them well into the night! Excellent service for a great price! "

"Ayanna took her time and treated my hair with a lot of love and care. I enjoyed the experience and will definitely be visiting her again soon."

"Ayanna was very nice, fast with her work, and knowledgeable in her skills. I decided to interlock my locs that I had another stylist start for me 5 weeks ago. I wish I had known about her salon before. I will be coming back for my loc maintenance. She explained to me that I can actually color sooner than I thought so I am excited about that. "

8/03/15

"Very quick, she was very helpful in helping me choose products to keep my locs soft. Will be going back when the next maintenance is due."
