After debating long and hard (i.e. years), and doing TONS of research, I decided to go with Samantha Banks. I used to go to Bill Lawrence Salon years ago, and after seeing her picture on another site, I remembered her face. Ive been natural for 2+ years, and have been very leary about going to salons. I have probably only been to 1 salon since Ive been natural. They were fine, but they didnt cut hair at all, so that didnt work well for me. Ive also been wearing weaves off and on (mostly on) for the past 18 months, so I was in desperate need of a trim/cut.

The salon is quaint and nicely decorated, but not overly done (2 bowls, 2 dryers and 2 stylists chairs). Samantha is very sweet. She sat and talked with me about my hair, my hair goals, and what I wanted to do during this visit. She explained some things about hair health and asked what products I had been using. I was happy to see she is all for growing long healthy hair, which is my goal. I havent had long hair since I had a relaxer, so I definitely need some help now that Im natural.

She washed, blowdried, cut and flatironed my hair. Im conservative (probably too much) about my hair, so I opted for some bangs that I could swoop side to side, and long layers. She did an awesome job with my cut. She gave me a curly style, but because my hair is fine, curls dont last long anyway, so by the time I was ready to go out that evening, my curls dropped considerably. I just wrapped my hair, and it looked great when I took it down; extremely bouncy and full of shine.

I have been getting so many compliments about my hair. To me, I look like my normal self (minus the weave), but people keep saying my hair looks gorgeous/wonderful/beautiful, etc. She is a little pricey, but the information, product recommendations, one-on-one service and attention to detail made it all worth it.

I first found out about Samantha about six months after I moved to DC from California. I was so relieved to find her because she focuses on keeping your hair healthy. I never have to worry about getting too much heat on my hair and it causing irreparable damage.

Samantha helped me choose a variety of hairstyles (bangs, bob, etc.) that were flattering to my facial features, and I completely trust her judgment when it comes to cutting and trimming my hair.

Samantha is a talented stylist. After leaving the salon, I walk less than a block and am already getting compliments on my hair from men and women of all races.

I have been a client of Samantha??s for about 10 years. Her new salon is warm, cozy, relaxing AND has free WIFI. Her clientele is diverse which always leads to interesting discussions and at times, fabulous business and personal advice. Sam has made me a blond, brunette and a few shades in-between?never disappointing. She provides great cuts and is never overly ??scissor happy.? I have had blowouts and wet sets depending on the look I was trying to achieve and she is the ONLY PERSON I would ever allow to give me a Brazilian Keratin treatment?and it turned out great! I have never met a stylist who is a perfectionist like her. For many years I had trouble finding someone who understood my texture of hair so when I meet her I finally just exhaled in happiness. In my opinion Sam functions and excels from 2 premises?.her client??s happiness and more importantly, her clients having healthy hair. I recommend her without hesitation.
