I have been going to Braid It Up for over 10 years. I have left happy I'd say 97% of the time. It did not bother me that the shop was in a renovated garage. Whenever I was unhappy with my results, the owner and my sometimes stylist Robin ensured that my issues were addressed and corrected at no charge. She is knowledgeable and attentive. Of course, there were stylists who were not up to par. They no longer work there. The new location is wonderful. It is well-lit and spacious. I have sensitive skin and thinning issues. Robin advised me on which products were best for me. The one problem I have with some of her stylists is that they talk on their cell phones while working. I like to think that attention is solely on my head.

All that these people do is put in the weave they don't know how to style it and don't give you any advice on how to take care of the weave.

They instructed me to get a 14in weave when I only wanted my hair to be at my shoulders. (it was my first time I didn't know any better) Extra money I didn't need to spend.

The end result was a tangled ratty mess that was too long and very hard to maintain. Since the weave was not styled just left hanging striaght and long it got tangled on all of my clothes and I had to brush my hair like every hour to remove the knots that formed!!!

The stylist did not use a net to prolong the life of the weave or braid my cornrows to fit the shape of my head. She just did a generic beehive and then placed the tracks in a circle around my head. My hair and no movement or bounce. I didn't want to leave any of my hair out so they told me to leave a part so it would look more natural by doing tree braids in the front. She charged an extra $25 to do so and my tracks were showing at the top because she didn't do enough of them.

I suggest you don't come here for a sow in weave unless you feel like throwing away $200 dollars!!!

One stop shop for all of your weaving and braiding needs. The owner is very courteous and polite and runs a very professional hair salon. I have been going here for over 10 years now and I have not once been dissatisfied. Please go and support this black-owned business.
