Barbara was my hair stylist for 8 years. I loved her from the start. She took a severely damaged head of hair and nursed it back to life. I always said she had blessed hands. She was always focused on the health of my hair and continually provided guidance on the care and maintenance of my hair. I could count on her to stay abreast of the latest trends in the hair industry. The atmosphere of her shop was always one of peace, relaxation, and happiness. I was sad to see her leave Kansas, but excited to see her start a new journey. If you're looking for a new stylist, she won't disappoint you. She's an amazing stylist and great person.
I have been going to Barbara for almost a year now, I met her by chance while doing my grocery shopping. I was looking for a stylist in the Northern Virginia area, because it was a real chore to travel to Maryland to get my hair done. I have chemically treated hair that had extensive damage. Over the past year Barbara has done wonders with deep conditioning and different protectives hair styles (Crochet Braids, and Weaves) that have allowed my hair to finally start growing in strong. Barbara is talented with color and cuts as well; I consider myself fortunate to have found her. I have recently moved out of town, but when I’m in the Northern VA area the first call I make is to Barbara, to see if she can squeeze me in to get my hair done!!!
An AMAZING Experience from Start to Finish An amazing experience from start to finish is actually an understatement. I've have been going to Barbara for about 6 months, and I am more than thoroughly pleased with my hair. I have natural hair, so sometimes it can be a little difficult to manage. Barbara is always gentle with my hair even when she washes it. I usually go to her for a wash and set that includes a trim and flat iron. I've had a few bad experiences with stylists trimming my hair and what I like about Barbara is that she really listens to her customers. She was able to calm my fears and thoroughly explains the hair care process. I've also noticed a difference in my hair in that it has really grown out and that it looks and feels healthier. I've even referred Barbara to another friend who feels the same way, and we are both very pleased with our hair and the hair services that Barbara provides.
