First off I've been going to Yakha for 7 years and I will never go back. Don't waste your time dialing her number cause after I give this review you won't want service from them. First off, I had a 8:00 a.m. appointment. She was not on time and I waited and gave her a 20 minute lead way. Still was not there, By the time I made it back across town where I live she called and Begged, and I mean Begged me to come back so I did. And to be honest the only reason I went back was because she gave me a $30.00 discount. Ok so I get there and tell her I want Havana Twists, she was ok with that but I was in there 6 hours for a job that should have taken less time. Remember ladies, havanas are huge. But the worst part is I had two different types of hair in my head and she had to leave twice to get hair for me and the second time I bought the hair cause she said I was using all of her hair. She DID NOT discount me for that either. However she had parted my sections small enough for medium box braids and I had roughly 10 packs of hair in my head. My hair was so heavy on my head it was causing my neck to hurt. I removed them within 4 days because they were unmanageable. I called her to see if we could come up with something to make me more comfortable and she suggested I wear my hair in a twisted ponytail but that added weight. She told me that she couldn't redo or adjust my hair. I spent a total of $170.00 and was not satisfied. They are very slow, unprofessional and they are just out to get your money. The time before that I got Senegalese twists and had to go back because they were so so messy. Big knots, unravelling uneven in size and length and they had loose hair intertwined between sections which caused pain. I gave her another change and went back since I been with her for so long and requested only she (Yakha) do my hair. Ugh, just don't bother ladies, if you want a better experience for the type of money you will be paying, from my
experience with these people, my best suggestion is go elsewhere. Save yourselves the frustration of going here and being unsatisfied.

Do not go here. I would not recommend this place. and I believe that recently they may have changed their name, likely due to the fact that they have such poor service and needed a new name. Poor service, they price gauge and change prices, and then when you act as if you will leave they apologize and beg you to stay. Never come here avoid it, there are other west side African hair braiders, basically one on all the corners.

I WENT AND GOT MY HAIR BRAIDED ON MARCH 20TH,2009. I SPENT 180 DOLLARS ON MY HAIR AT FIRST i WAS HAPPY WITH MY BRAIDS THAT IS UNTIL A GIRL CAME IN AND WAS COMPLAINING ABOUT HER SINGLES. SHE HAD ONLY HAD THEM DONE FOR 11 DAYS AND THEY WERE LOOKING BAD IN THE FRONT. BUT I WAS ALREADY IN THE CHAIR AND THEY HAD ALREADY STARTED BRAIDING MY HAIR AND I HAD PAID ALREADY. THEY TOLD ME THAT IT WOULD ONLY TAKE ME 4 HRS I WAS THERE FOR 6 HRS AND I HAD 2 PEOPLE BRAIDING MY HAIR. WHEN I LEFT THE LOOKED WONDERFUL I WRAPPED MY HAIR UP EACH NIGHT BUT THEY STILL KEPT GETTING FRIZZY. THEN THE NEXT DAY 3 BRAIDS CAME OUT. MY HAIR KEPT GETTING FRIZZIER AND WORSE BY THE DAY AT 2 WEEKS IT LOOKED LIKE MY BRAIDS HAD BEEN IN FOR A MONTH. MONDAY THE 20TH WILL A MONTH AND I HAVE LOST THE ENTIRE BACK HALF OF MY BRAIDS.

I am always looking for quality at a inexpensive price, so I decided to give Yakha Express Braids a try. They were nice and wanted to give you the best look for your money.
I wasnt sure what i wanted done at first; but i decided on kinky twists (she did them with Kankelon Hair) and they look and feel very nice I will try them again. It took her 41/2 hrs to do and she had a little girl vying for attention too. so all in all give them a try. :)

I read Shaneka T's review and decided to try this salon out for micro braids. My experience did not come close to meeting my expectations. The braids were not neatly done and the knots used to start the braids were huge. The two ladies that braided my hair were very rude and unfriendly. One of the braiders had her daughter there and she cried, ran around, and was completely disruptive the entire nine hours that I was there, and her mom did not address her behavior. Needless to say I will not be returning to Yakha Express.

I had my hair braided by this shop. They were reasonably priced, I called around to about 6 other hair salons and they were the least expensive. I actually called the day of and they were able to get me in to the shop right after work. I was amazed that they were going to be able to get me in so late in the day. They had two people working on the braids and I was out of there in a little over 4 hours. My braids turned out fabulous and everyone asks where I got them done. I have had them for almost three months and I will definitely be going back to them. The shop was small, but larger that other places that I visited for quotes. I would highly recommend them!
