AVOID this place. Okay well here it goes from a guys perspective. I called this place on a Thursday. I asked if they had any free appointments to do cornrows for a male. She didn't ask the length of my hair, the texture or nada. I was told there were no walk-ins available, after which I asked (I stress I !!!) when was her next available time. She told me Monday at 10. I'm a college student so I skipped a class and arrived at the store at 10 to find it was still locked. I thought the day was odd, as in my experience in TX most beauty shops are closed on Mondays. So I called the number and after three hang-ups the woman answered and said (in a fake sick voice) that she was ill and wouldn't be in and to come on Tuesday. I showed up on Tuesday and there were three women (stylists?) sitting around having a conversation. No one approached me for help when I came in and I had to disrupt their conversation. I was then told that my hair was relaxed on the ends and they couldn't braid it. I have over 4 inches of hair. 3 of which is new growth. I played her silly little game as she told me that she couldn't do any cornrows. The whole business is a joke. My fiancee who is a stylist in Germany and Nigerian (Edo) told me that this lady just doesn't want to do hair that is not going to make her a lot of money. She (my fiancee) somehow managed to braid my hair when I only had 2 inches of growth. Avoid this place. They don't keep any real appointment records (I'm positive) and they are rude. Just call to make an appointment and that conversation alone will tell you all you need to know. Another point from my fiancee, in reference to them talking about you in their native language, yes a lot of times they are. She stated that she makes sure her stylists do not have prolonged conversations in Bini, to make her customers feel comfortable. Most East, West, and South Africans speak English, so there is no excuse for them to be communicating in Pidgin or other languages. It's not that they are talking about you behind your back (all the time) it's the impression. Regardless of the language barrier, if someone is talking about you though, you can sense it through their body language and the guilt that will be expressed on their faces.

Guys, I get all your reviews and concerns. I will not go to the place because of their srvice.
I have a question, why is it that Americans always assume that when people speak a different language around them, they are talking about them? What do you have /do that is so worthy of a conversation for the 4-12 hours that your hair is being braided?Don't be so insecure!!! Maybe not everyone wants their salon to turn into a gossip town, so they rather talk about certain matter in their own language. Or what if they just feel more comfortable speaking their language. If you could speak another language, would you not do the same? Maybe you were just mad because for once you left a hair salon without the opportunity to pick up trach or trash talk someone else, so much so, that you had to write a review about how someone was talking about. Instead of feeling insecure maybe you should have taken this opportunity to learn something?
AND HOW DID YOU KNOW THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT YOU?
CHILD, GET OVER YOURSELF, YOU AIN'T THAT INTERESTING!!!

DO NOT EVER GO TO THIS PLACE! The service was horrible and the staff was extremely rude and very confrontational. These women were talking about me and laughing in their little homeland language. I was charged $140 for micros, and the the micros, I say that very loosely, were horrible!! First off, they were big in the middle and just very bad looking, VERY TIGHT around the edges, AGAINST MY REQUEST, which CAUSED MY HAIR TO COME OUT AROUND THE EDGES, and the HAIR NEVER GREW BACK. They DO NOT KNOW HOW TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS, they'll just do whatever they want or feel like doing. I could have done a better job on my own. The woman who braided my hair was ridiculously unfriendly, no customer service what so ever. I do not remember her name but I remember she was light skinned, skinny and petite. If you know who I am talking about do not ever deal with her, don't even go to this shop for that matter. My cousins have also had similar experiences, non of us have ever gone back to this hellish hair establishment, if you can even call it that. More like a bunch of scamming, money hungry, conniving, wenches who should have their green cards taken away, and be sent straight back to wherever they came from. YES I SAID IT!!!!! IT'S THE TRUTH..... !

I made an appointment for a Monday to have micros. She first told me to come in at 11am then she changed it to 9am. She called me the night before to make sure I was going to keep my appointment. I ended up going home because she never arrived at the shop Monday morning. I called her at home to see what happen to our appointment to finally reach her at the salon. So I did not get my hair braided until 1030am, with no apologies. I was told to come back on Wednesday to have the rest of my hair braided because she was going to take her son to school and I had to handle some things myself because of my schedule. Arriving for my hair appointment on Wednesday she was a NO SHOW AGAIN. When I called her I was told she was sleep and sick while I was waiting in the rain with half my hair braided. I ask her partner to finish my hair and she said she wouldn't and maybe the original woman would finish my hair the next day (convenient 1 day sickness). I live in Moore and this shop is at least 30 minutes away from my home. So I'm furious at their carelessness and disregard to others schedule and needs. When I called on Wednesday I ask why no one called me and I was told they tried three times but the number was "no good" If my number was no good how was I able to call them at home using my caller id? Liars!!!!!!!!!! I called today (THURSDAY) and still no one can do my hair. She??s sick and her partner says she has other clients and will not move anything around to finish my hair. WTF!!!!!!!!! My hair is still not done and it??s THURSDAY.
Please STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. It??s the worst business I have ever been too, rude irresponsible, and also ignorant. (The woman told me I had nappy hair???) . They should be shut DOWN??

I've been to this salon twice and there were 3 African women working/braiding. They were really standoffish and complained at the amount of time it took to do my hair both times. I have really thick hair BUT in business, etiquette is a must, a few of my family members went there and said they were rude to them also (they have much less hair than I do) But they wanted their braids bad enough to deal with the attitudes. Good Luck!

I ??WAS? going to Georgette, and her sister for about a year, I would get my hair re-done about every two months, I would always call a week ahead of time to make my appt, I got to my appt which was at 10:30 March , 2009, she had four other ladies that she had over booked.
She would braid my hair and others, and in the top and back the braids would be big, ??I was getting Micros?.
If you called they will tell you one price, once you get there they would charged a different price, Georgette quoted me a price of 130.00 I get there she tells me it will be 180.00? I was tired of putting up with their mess so I stopped going to them, BECAUSE that is not the way you conduct business.

They are expensive at this shop as compared to others. I had 4:30 appt. and was not seen until 7pm. This was very unprofessional, not to mention I drove from out of town to get my hair braided. While getting my hair braided, I asked to get the same size of braids all the way around my head because that's what I paid for - regardless of her mistake in time (I was paying $ 180). Needless to say that after I finished, my braids were larger in the back ( so I ended up with the $130-140 braid style). I was not happy with this facility because If she only had time to do the cheaper hair style, I would have preferred her to tell me that versus taking my money and not doing the job I paid for. People there were friendly and they do talk their language which is annoying and disrespectful at times. I was pleased with the actual braiding but not with the size I had. Not sure if I would recommend someone here or not. I guess that alone is enough.

I have been going to AMI for years now & it is always a pleasant experience. They are a very nice family owned business. I think it is reasonably priced fro what you get. Beautiful braids, that last a long time within about 4 hours. (I got there @ 4:30 and was on my way home my 8:00) if you are tender headed then they are not for you. I highly recommend them to anyone that has the time & money to spend, definately will get your moneys worth.

They are expensive here and my braids were a little tight but i managed to deal with it, they did begin to loosen up after a couple of days. I have went to them three times and have not had any problems, in fact when some of my briads came down in the back i called them up and went in and she fixed the problem. I would recommend them to others that want their micro's done professionally.

I paid over $130.00 for micro braids they talked about me from the time i came in to the time I left. They got tired of braiding my hair and in the middle the braids were thick. I could not wear my hair down. Also I asked them not to braid my baby hair in and they did causing my hair to fall out along the edges. When I called them back they said put a hot towel on my head to loosen the braids up that did not work. They are very rude speaking in there language and you know they are talking about you. I wish there was someone in Oklahoma that could braid hair well and not charge a arm and a leg to do it.
