.

I called to make an appointment, I told her (Tina who wears an AWFUL blonde weave/wig) that I wanted kinky twists, medium length. She says that is great because she is running a special of $65 M-W, I couldn't believe my ears I was like that is GREAT!!! I will be there tomorrow. I purchased my own hair (4 packs) and took it with me. I got there at 9am per my appointment so that I would be the first one there, and all of the stylists were already working on someone else. Anyway, I had to wait about a half hour before I was even serviced. This would have been fine if I were a walk in, but I made an APPOINTMENT which to my understanding was the first slot of the day.

Ok, so once my hair is braided (they did a decent job, not the best but not bad either) I go to pay and she tells me $110. Now mind you I brought my own hair, and this was my second time going here, my first time I was charged the same price and hair was included. So how is it the same price as if I didn't bring my own hair??! So anyway, I brought 4 packs of hair, and I have been kinky twists for about 8 years and have NEVER used more than 3 packs. She used ALL FOUR packs and then actually ran out and they had to use some of their hair for about TEN braids, that is all, no exaggeration. So then Tina was like oh the $65 special is for the really short twists (and she pointed to her ear for length reference). And then she was like "and you used some of our hair 0_o) I said I told you what I wanted over the phone, and I would never agree to a short style because HELLO my REAL hair is longer than that!!! Which doesn't make any sense, my hair is collar bone length which is why I told her medium length over the phone NOT short. So I had already tipped my stylist $10 and I had planned to give Tina the $65. And she got all pissed and I'm like hello you quoted me $65, anyway, I gave her $10 extra and told her I already tipped the other girl $10. So I ended up paying $85 out of pocket. No way was she getting $110 after quoting me $65. Now that I think about it, I shouldn't have paid a dime more than she quoted me.

I will never return here, because I am not a fan of shady business practices, and I do not appreciate being TRICKED into having a service done and then told a different price at the end. If I were going to pay $110, a. I wouldn't have spent $20 on purchasing my own hair since it was the same price and b. I wouldn't have traveled from Jersey City to go to East Orange. I would've gone down the street from my house if I were going to spend $110. I made the trip because of the ALLEGED SPECIAL. DON'T GO HERE!!!!!

Ihad the misfortune to get my hair done at this salon. You would think with the amount she charged you would have quality service. Instead, you waited for at least 2 hours despite having an appointment. Tina promised me that her stylist could recreate any style I desired. Instead I got a big puff of hair that looked nothing like what I requested. I would never return there, it is overpriced, and quite a rip-off. Please find another place to get your hair done. These ladies are rude and overly full of their past accomplishments. They are awfully quick to run a litany of all the stars Tina has coifed, but believe me, there was no star quality in these stylist. Save your money and find another place.

Sat 4 1 hr till a worker came in, sat 1 half hr till owner brought the correct hair upstairs to me, sat 4 hrs just to get a weave. Tracks were too tight, wasnt the style i ask 4. They put no effect in2 you as being a paying customer, the worker spoke french the whole time 2 the other worker, owner Tina sat at the shampoo bowl knoding out like a junky. Tv was so loud, i felt my head pounding, and all i wanted do was hurry and get out of this dirty run down unprofessional salon . Hair turn out ok, got to counter to pay, owner told me 4 different prices, i gave her what she told me from the begining , she had the nerve to write me a slip with a balance on it like i was ever going back to that hair salon ever. It was the worse experience ever, dirty, lazy workers, all they want to do is watch tv and eat!!!!! Got home , 1hr later blisters all on my head, i repeorted this salon, they said i wasnt the first, and they are looking in2 it, they ask if i was scamed by owner, i said yes. And if workers had a license, and if they were legal with green card. Stay far away from this beauty salon, do not waste your time or your money.

I arrived at my scheduled appointment of 8:00 a.m. There was someone else there to get their hair done by the same person but she was willing to let her start me off since her style won't take too long (that as so nice of her). We waited for almost an hour for the stylist to get there and she strolled in as if she didn't even have any appointments! When she started my hair Tina's God daughter came in with her daughter wanting her and her daughter's hair done by the same stylist doing my hair. Even though Tina told her that the stylist was doing my hair the God daughter was such a brat that as a grown woman she threw a tantrum saying that she's paying for her hair to get done and she wants service. Instead of Tina and the stylist being professional and telling her that I along with the other lady had appointments, they catered to her and her nasty attitude by putting me to the side for a little while so they can 'start her off' as they put it. I was fuming. But as a professional woman with much class, I let it slide. I was happy that I cleared my schedule to get my hair done but was also disappointed that I left the salon at approx 4 pm after being there since 8 am! Ridiculous!!!! If I didn't tell them that I had to work, I would have been there longer. Then the stylist doing my hair told me that I should schedule braids not get braids during the weekends because they get busy. I should schedule it on the weekdays. She said it as if I have all the time in the world and no life to live or a job. I couldn't believe that she tried to make it out to be my fault for their lack of professionalism!! When I was finished my hair looked great and I tipped her for the great job on my hair. But when it was time to pay Tina charged me more than she did the previous time. She came up with some screwed up story why she was charging me more but I told her that I know what I got my style was exactly the same as before. It bothered me that they let Tina's God daughter behave so rude to other paying customers. It bothered me that I was blamed for getting braids on the weekend. It bothered me that I was charged a higher price for the same style I got previously. I vowed never to go back and I haven't been back in over two years. The funny thing is that I saw that stylist at the hair store one day. She said hello and I cordially said hello in return. She went on to say that she hasn't seen me at the salon. I said, "nope and I will never return back to get my hair done nor will I refer any of my friends...have a great day!"

Pros: There is on good stylist

Cons: Too many to narrow down

Had called for a price over the phone, spoke to the manager Tina , she gave me a reasonable price for a weave and told me to be there early at 8:30 am, I figure I would get in and out, turned out to be I sat there for an hour not one worker showed on time, you would think Tina would have start me, but instead she was in her kitchen upstairs cooking . No air was on, it was very warm, then one worker showed, ask if I needed a shampoo, I said yes, so she shampoo me, and got yelled at from tina for using too much shampoo in my hair. i was already stress out from sitting for an hour, then thought I would unwine from my shampoo, but I was wrong . The woman blowed dried my hair, finally the worker came , ask what i style I was getting, she went downstairs forever just to bring up to show me hair. The hair quality is pretty poor in this beauty salon, and Tina changed her price on me. I stayed since I sat long enough , the girl kept talking the whole time to this other worker , I couldn't tell her that the weave was too tight, I was in so much pain, that i could have pass out , between no air, this was really bad . I told the stylist how I wanted my weave done, but she did it the way it was easier for her to put in . I had never been to a salon that was so bad like this one. When I got to the counter to pay the price changed again. This Tina is the owner, not the manager , she is a crook and I'm sure none of those workers have a licences to do hair. The next day I woke up with blisters on my head, and went to a salon down the street from me to have this taken out. There was so many sores on my head and some of my hair just fell out. I am taken this further, in the hands of the law. Please do not bother going to this salon, STAY FAR AWAY FROM TINAS BEAUTY SALON IN EAST ORANGE 422 .

I went here for micro braids and got mini cornrows. The girl who did my hair appeared to be in a hurry. From the looks of it, my braids did looked nice but when I touched the top part of my head, all I felt were little cornrows. I demanded my money back (oh yeah, you have to pay before you get serviced) and the owner gave me nothing back.
I agree with the last review, she is a crook. Warning: DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE !!!

The salon is great for a onetime service. The service in the salon tends to be LACKADASICAL and the staff do not come on time,
I sat there for an hour , had to keep putting money in the meter,
it seems like no one wants to work but just sit and eat, tv is loud , no music, and no aircondition, it was very hot in there,end up spending my whole day there just to get a weave, the stylist was on the phone , and wouldn't stop talking to the other stylist in there. They put no effort into doing your weave.
After sitting in this salon all day from 9am till 2pm, went to pay at the counter, the manger must have change her price more then 3 times with me. She is a crook !!!!! If you are looking for a place to escape mentally, this is not a salon for you .
