Stellar service!!!!! The establishment is clean and welcoming. The owner, Ms. Laudia and the braiders are very professional and polite. I got box braids and I love them. They are very neat and well done. I drove 2 hours here to get my hair braided. I wouldn't go anywhere else! You get what you pay for! I am a satisfied customer!
