CASH ONLY! Yelp got it wrong. My bad, I should have asked when I made the appt.
Fabiola was fantastic on the phone, and as other reviewers noted Coco is super sweet. Diane did my hair, she was quick and listened to my concerns. I also really liked that she did a "test twist" to make sure it was the length and thickness I wanted. I knew they had hair to sell, so I was fine paying the premium for the convenience of not having to stop at another store and soft through piles of extension options.
The whole process took about 4 hours which included a quick lunch break. I was well entertained by the Hallmark movies, and thank goodness an outlet for my phone was close.
When I handed over my credit card, Diane politely told me about the whole CASH ONLY thing I mentioned up top. Mortified is the best way to describe my sentiment and it was likely all over my face. There is an ATM next door, which would have been great (minus ridiculous fees) had I brought an ATM card.
Coco said I could come back with the $$. Good thing I bike fast. She wouldn't even take my driver's license as collateral. I hate owing people money, so I needed to rectify the situation stat! Thankfully my bank was less than a half mile away, and did I mention how fast I ride? ;) I got back, paid, and felt relieved. Thinking back, my trustworthiness is something for which I am grateful. Next time I'll know to bring cash!

It looks great she braided my hair exactly how I asked her and she took her time to make sure each braid was perfect

I highly recommend getting your hair braided here. These women are truly a blessing to be around. They will do your hair beautifully and the prices are reasonable. Fabiola and KoKo are the best!

So, I ask Fabiola for an appointment through the Yelp app...and she responded right away...I also got a same day appointment...Unfortunately, it wasn't the salon literally around the corner from me. However, it was a last minute same day appointment...I had to go to Lake Forest and have Regina do my hair...I must say that Regina was very nice and did an amazing job on my crochet faux locs...She was very understanding when I showed up with not enough hair and had to leave to go get more hair...Just like I told her I may drive alll the way their for my next style just to be someplace different...(the other salon is walking distance)...Thank you Regina for the conversation and patience....

They did absolutely wonderful on my hair! At first I was skeptical bc of 1 certain review, but they completely surprised me! The price was what brought me in, but their skills and kindness is what will bring me back :) thank you so much for your wonderful service and I LOVE how my hair came out.

Passed this place months ago and went in to inquire since I needed a hairdresser closer to me. They were very welcoming and the place was very clean.
Wound up going back for crochets. I went in 15 minutes before my appointment and my braided was ready for me. Unfortunately she had to take down my cornrows because the last time I did so, I cut my hair so she did so quickly and washed it.
My braider whose name I learned was Jeneba was a soft braider and very nice-even let me change the tv channel.
I was in and out in 3 hours (including the take down) and I was impressed. Quiet and probably the cleanest hair salon I've been to so I recommend
Went back twice since and got Coco. Amazing braider and quick. I was in and out in 2 hours for cornrows
