I really liked Niecy when I first went to her a couple of years ago. She seemed to know a lot about hair, and seemed to be an expert on growing hair long, hair color, and extending a relaxer. I could tell that she REALLY cared about healthy hair, and hair, and that she was creative. I loved that about her. And I would have continued to go to her, had I not noticed a few negative qualities to her business:
1. She is CONSTANTLY moving from shop to shop. I haven't went to Niecy in a year or so, but friends I have that DO go to Niecy, have told me all the places that she's moved to. She is never at a salon for longer than a year. It makes it hard to develop consistency with her, since she is always moving.
2. Her prices for relaxers and weaves are very high. While her weaves are worth the price, her relaxers aren't. I've found people who do just as good of job as she does, at relaxing my hair-and all for under $70.
3. She seems to want to style your hair HER way, and doesn't necessarily listen to you even when you tell her how you want her hair to look.

It's these ^ points that led me elsewhere. Like I said, I enjoyed Niecy, but felt that she was too unstable, too pricey, and too "set" in her ways to really be as good as I know she can be.

Business Response:

Thank you for the review, I charge for time as-well as the service. Relaxers(sodium Base) and its improper application is #1 reason for hair loss of AA women. Relaxers are under priced ,underrated, and applied to often,which leads chemical burns' thinning hair to baldness. An Advanced educated stylist should never removed more than 75% of curl with a sodium base relaxer. I do explain to clients that I don't do a bone straight relaxer service and I WON'T compromise the integrity of a clients hair. The clients that have been loyal have great relaxed or natural hair that has grown to their desired length and beyond and they have the flexibility to go curly if needed. A Great hair cut provides foundation and texture gives flexibility of the Style. You are only being charged $25 for a relaxer so be careful your new stylists' are using the best. Niecy healthy hair is a must!!!

all I can say is.... I love it! I love it! I love it! Thank U Neicy! She is gentle with the care of each individuals hair! I was looking for an alternitive for perming my hair, and she suggested the Brizilian Blowout. WoW! I suggest everyone to try it!

I am excited about your Hair and glad that you chose to invest in your hair care. The Brazilian Blowout was an excellent choice.

Niecy uses quality products. I get my hair chemically straightened and she uses a relaxer that actually contains conditioner, which means:
-no uncomfortable/tingling sensation on my scalp
-no risk of sustaining a burn/hair loss
-no damage/breakage that is ostensibly associated with chemically treated hair

I LOVE MY HAIR!!!!! I love my color!! Oh my goodness...
I never write reviews. I am sure that statement has been said a million plus times on this website. However, I must stress that, what Niecy (owner and beautician) did to my hair was nothing short of artistry. Thus, I am here writing this review.

Niecy is an expert on ALL TYPES of hair - Black, White, Asian, Latin,etc...She is a master at it all.

I am a Black woman with a natural. A natural that, prior to meeting Niecy, was out-of-control! I wanted a change. I wanted to go blond. Not a tacky blond, but, one that worked with my complexion. I do not know how to put this: she worked my stuff, and I came out absolutely transformed (in the BEST possible way!) She layered the shades of blond so beautifully - it is as though my hair actually grows this way. It's so super; hard to describe.

What is most important, is that my hair has never been healthier.
I literally left her salon with a HEAD FULL OF HEALTHY HAIR - and the cut is awesome. And to those out there wondering if I'm sporting a tiny fro? Oh no...no, no, no. I've got some serious hair.

So wonderful is my hair that two people stopped me, not thirty minutes after leaving the salon, asking me how I cared for my hair (because it looked so healthy.) The compliments continue to come.

Last (so sorry this review is long but Niecy has earned it), Niecy's customer service is five star. It is almost lessening her spirit to refer to her treatment of customers using the term "customer service." She instantly makes you feel as though you've known (and loved) her for quite a long time. She is extremely knowledgeable about her craft, and answered-with-ease some pretty scientific coloring questions from me. Her shop is super cute & clean (I'm a Virgo - I know clean!) She arrived on time and she worked on MY hair. No juggling phone calls, and talking to everyone and their grandmas in between my trips to the washbowl.

Get out to Glen Ellyn. Yes, it's the suburbs, but the trip is more than worth it if you truly love your hair.

If you care about healthy hair and you don't have much time to spare, then Afhair Salon & Spa is the right salon for you.

The staff lead by Master Stylist and Owner, Dornise Pewett provides exceptional service to each of their clients and makes them feel like a part of the family without sacrificing professionalism. This is a true multicultural salon servicing all hair textures and types.

What attracts me to the salon is that they are very respectful of the time constraints often placed on the working woman. They do not overbook and do not keep you waiting for service. Their online appointment booking tool is convenient and very user-friendly.

Unfortunately, I have had many hair escapades in the past from bad cuts and color jobs to rude stylists that overbooked their clients and managed to make you lose an entire day sitting in a salon. However, when I discovered Afhair Salon all my reservations about salons were resolved.

No matter what your texture, trauma or time constraint, Afhair Salon & Spa will once again have you loving your hair.

I have been going to Niecy for years and I have always been satisfied at the results. She is a true professional and her salon has a therapeutic vibe which upon entry you are ultimately transformed both inside and outward. It is always nice to have a warm and inviting place whereas your troubles are left outside the door. With Afhair the salon, you get the high end and sophisticated hair styles that are moderately priced. I recommend the salon to everyone I know.

Very professional, prices are fair and I get in and out fast (this is sooo important to me) I've been going to Afhair Salon for over 5 months, and when I arrived, I felt like a wounded puppy, my hair was damaged from a previous hair stylist. Now months later, my hair is stronger, longer, and healthier. I accredit this hair turn around to the owner of Afhair Salon. The salon has the newest products and equipment (I love the hair steam machine) She takes the time to explain my hair progress, the importance of clipping my ends and how to care for my hair at home. At the end of my appointment, I'm always pleased with my hair, and I get compliments from strangers and without hesitation; I send them to Afhair Salon.
