Testimonials

 

“Lalitha is awesome! I was very pleased with my hair, and I’ve never seen it in this state. I’m natural and struggled with finding someone that could style my hair and it actually last. With the way my hair feels now, I’m confident that it will last. [Lalitha is] knowledgeable and informative. I love her availability too! Thank you so much, Lalitha!!!”
— K.A., Shampoo And Style Natural Hair

“I have been wearing weave for several years, but I have to say this is the BEST sew in that I have ever received. [It was] the first time ever that I haven’t left the salon with an excruciating headache because the braids or sew in are too tight!!! Lalitha is very professional and pays attention to how you want your hair. I was a first time client needing my hair done on short notice for a family trip, and she was very accommodating and made it happen. She completed my sew in quickly, and it looks simply gorgeous. If you are looking for a great stylist, then Lalitha is your girl!”
— Ericka B, Partial SewIn Installation

“The service I’ve received thus far has been nothing but friendly, timely and professional. I feel like I’ve finally found a stylist who truly understands what I want and what my hair needs. I would recommend Lalitha in a heartbeat”
