I just wanted to thank you for styling my hair for the Wedding. You did a lovely job and I was so glad by late evening that I had hired you to do my hair. It would have never stayed so nice that long if I had done it myself. Wanted you to know that I appreciated what you did! I had such unrealistic expectations starting out as I never had my hair done professionally. You were terrific and gracious and I just wanted to tell you so!

You had me in tears the day of our trial run but on my Wedding day I was in absolute awe of how gorgeous my hair looked and couldn't even shed a tear. You have an amazing talent given from GOD and I am thankful to have been blessed with it. Thank You so much for making me look so beautiful!!!
"Tinika was very professional, helpful and pro "Healthy Hair Care". When I set up my color treatment appointment with Tinika I had no Idea what to expect. Weeks before I gave myself chestnut/golden brown color treatment at home to match the hair pieces I brought, and of course my hair came out orange. So I found Tinika and came in to see what she had to offer. The color books were helpful and had a wide variety, and the chestnut/golden brown color I wanted. As usual I'm stubborn, so I thought for sure this was not going to work. But It did, and the color looks great. My hair matched the extensions perfectly. After the color treatment Tinika recommended a deep conditioning, which made my hair super moisturized but weightless. I'm definitely a satisfied customer. :-) I hope everyone finds what they're looking for."
So I wanted to get my hair texturized, but I was terrified: terrified of damage to my scalp, terrified of over-processing and losing my curls, terrified of no longer being "natural"... I cut off all of my relaxed hair five years ago and have been natural ever since. Well I am so glad to have found Tinika! She was amazing -- she understood my hair type, understood my vision for my hair (still curly, just a bit looser!), expertly texturized my natural hair while preserving the curls' definition and texture, and then conditioned and styled it after. She talked me through the whole thing, and then gave me tips on how to best maintain and enhance my curls. I couldn't stop touching my hair when I left the salon -- the curls just looked amazing! Tinika is an extremely knowledgable stylist!
