Subject: Weave nightmare-Salon Rache

I paid 750 dollars for virgin hair 2 bundles approximately 15 inches, net full weave and coloring of weave by the owner Rachel. My appointment was at 9:00 am the Saturday before Christmas. I did not walk out of there until 5:00 pm, first strike. second strike her niece braided me down when I assumed as a new client that the stylist would at least braid my hair the first time and do a hair consultation. Third, when I expressed my displeasure with her niece braiding my hair and the wait; I was informed by the stylist that she had done me a favor by squeezing me in and if I wanted to wait for her ... I would wait even longer. Fourth strike, you can see tracks showing in my bob style... So embarrassing and tracks in the back are loose like I had the weave 6 weeks. mind you I got this weave done the Saturday before Christmas. Rachel is a great colorist but did a lousy job thinning out my short bob style in the back... translation - I look like I am wearing a 750 dollar wig. Worst experience ever getting a conversative hairstyle. She basically robbed me due to her obviously inability to blend the hair into the style I requested. After feeling like I worked a tour at work, all I could do was say that I liked it.....pay her and leave. I don't do well with confrontation. I can get to a 10 in less than 60 seconds..... Oh and Rachel told me not to tell anyone what she charged me because she gave me a break. ... No kidding .. How do I know that she robbed me? I know she did a terrible job based upon all the random .... Ur your tracks are showing comments I have received from strangers, colleagues and family. Next time I will stick with versatile artists who know how to blend and style short weave styles. And lastly, I did call her to tell her that my tracks were showing. Her response maybe you need to purchase more hair. I wish I knew how to post pictures of this nightmare weave...

Sorry for the loooooooon rant..

So sorry you had to go through that, but I would have at least told her how you felt. She needs to know that you paid $750 and your hair is a mess which is unacceptable.

Sorry hear this, sounds like it was highway robbery, based on what you are saying, and for her to say not to tell anyone what she charged you, she ripped you off, and did a lousy job.  I wouldn't hesitate to tell her off and to expose her.  Now you have to buy more hair and have your head redone, with more money coming out of your pocket

Why did you get a consult before your appointment?
Hair consults should not be done at your appointment.

Sorry this happened to you

Hi and thank you.... a mutual aquaintance called her the night before the sat appt... I assumed I would receive a consult before she started doing my hair.. No, instead she asked what do you want and proceeded from there. She colored my edges and leave out. Did she even look at my hair -No, what she did do was ask how I had been wearing my hair. again, a seasoned stylists asks these questions. She also remarked how quick my hair lifted when she started beaching my hair. I don't have a perm or need one.... I have very fine hair. ... Did she ask me if I had a perm.... No... And lastly, the braid pattern is jacked. Tracks on top of tracks-thus thick and bulky.... Of course the braids would become loose due to the state of my natural hair. A competent stylist always braids with synthetic hair with my hair.   Instead, I received her niece challenging me about why I wanted the stylist to braid me down ???? and telling me that Rachel doesnt braid. rachel the owner should have assisted me as a new client the very first time. What... That was bs treatment. .... Lesson learned about supreme unprofessionalism and overhyped stylists....check.....

When I thought about this Tom foolery and called back she acted slow... I told her the tracks were showing and she said ay be u need more hair. Wrong I did not use all of the 2 bundles she put in my hair from the jump. Again I left it alone... I got a 750 dollar wig ... I am not driving back to BMore . I just over her.

Wait, $750 for a Bob?! So was this hair cut from the good Lord's scalp? EP ain't even that high for short lengths.

kelolo...we are ><!

Girl, I got fire hot just reading that foolishness.

If you purchased the hair from her, why didn't she sell you a shorter length since she knew she was cutting it into a bob? That would have been my first sign she was a con artist.

That wait time is absolutely ridiculous. Even if she squeezed you in, she should have warned you that because you were last minute, your services may take a while. I'll be damned if I have an appointment and STILL sit in the salon all day.

Ladies, please start speaking up and telling these stylist when you aren't happy with the finished look. I know confrontation is hard, but it was bad enough she robbed you with out a gun...you shouldn't have had to leave with a sh!tty install on top of it all.

Sorry this happened to you, and good luck finding a future stylist!

OMG! So sorry this happened to you. But $750 for 2 bundles of 14-16, a sew in, cut and color? On what planet?! She played you. You should blow up her Yelp/Twitter/Facebook page with those pictures.

The only problem I see is how she closed it at the top. She should have installed the whole two bags/bundles. I dont think the price is horrible considering what SOME people pay for AV hair which is always marked up. So worst case scenario she charged half for the hair and half for the install, cut color and style. Shoot, I do hair as a hobby and even I charge 75 bucks just for the sew in with no cut or color. So really it is not absurd that she would charge you $350 in the shop. She basically double charged you for the hair. Me personally, I don't care how good the hair or install is I will never pay $750 to do anything with my hair cause unless I never have to take it out and it keeps growing on its own that is a waste to me. Plus, why would you pay that much and never saw her work? You should have asked more questions YOURSELF before you even booked an appointment. Part of this is your fault for not calling yourself. 

Re: consultation what else were you expecting? A closed mouth doesn't get fed so if you wanted more consulting you should have insisted or got up and walked out at that point. I'm sure the hairdresser is not a mind reader.

Next point: why wait until you leave to complain so there has to be another appointment set to fix it when it could have been addressed right then and there. You are the one who was dishonest and said you loved it. 

What do you think would have been a fair price for the services you received? How long do you think it should have taken to color, install, cut and style your weave in a salon where you were squeezed in at Christmas time?

This is why I will not do hair. People expect miracles.

Plus I want to see how your full style looked when you walked out of the shop, not the pics of where you clipped it up to show us the tracks on top of tracks. I can't tell if it is bulky or not based on what you posted.

This is only one side of the story and we all know how that goes. Not saying you are wrong but knowing how people are I am sure there is more to the story.

Sorry if I hurt your feelings, I'm just keeping it real.

Also, not every "competent" stylist braids with synthetic hair for the base. It depends on the clients preference and state of their hair. So again, if you wanted hair braided in and they weren't doing it you should have said so. You have a lot to learn about the weave game. But I guess that is why you are down here in the newbie section.

The more I think, How could tracks on a net weave be loose? Can you stick your fingers through where track is sewed to the net. It is not supposed to feel "tight" that is the point of the net. Really around the perimeter is the only place the tracks should be sewn onto your braids with a net. Also, what difference did the braid pattern make if you used a net? I am totally not understanding. Then like I said, the closure part does look horrible. She probably underestimated the thinness of your natural hair because most people who had a leave out area that big would have no problems with the tracks being exposed. I NEVER would have left the salon with that big gapping hole!!! So you have no room to get sideways with the stylist since you seemed cool with it when you left. 

I'm not saying she is completely right but neither are you. I'm going to look for some of her other work.......

First off, as I mentioned I don't have a problem with paying 750 dollars if the weave is on Point!!!!! Second, I did not expect a miracle- Only God does that. And the weave is loose... Hair has come out of the tracks. when I use a wide tooth comb....I can see how some of my hair that is supposed to be braided down is not..under the net. I have fine hair. It is safe to assume that for rowing my hair would be best with synthetic... As the braid does not come loose under that scenario. I have been getting weaves for over 30 years all over the country when most posters were not bubbles on the water. I would not make accusations about the quality of the work if it where not true. And lastly, I stated that I needed a versatile stylists not one who can only handle Kim K's and ponytails. And yes, If a stylist cannot give the client what they asked for... Tell them so.... I don't like confrontation because I can't pull back. She did a poor azz job on my head period. What she does with others is just that. Hotter than fish grease...

I don't care how well she laid somebody else's hair what she did to my hair is what matters to me..... The person who referred her to me hair is amazing bangs and long in the back..... But my hair is jacked up.... Period... She will not get another opportunity to jack me up. Yes I was going back to have her fix it..even scheduled an appointment to go back and told her the tracks where showing, but not worth the day it will take and additional expense.  I spend more on my shoes than that so please don't infer that my issue is 750 . My issue is......Technique and customer service.

She saw the top of my head ... She let me get out if her chair.... With the top of my head looking like that.  I did not see that. I went to an event after leaving the Salon and was approached  about the color and the tracks showing. Complements about the color and oh my God comments about the technique. You not hurting my feelings because your dissertation don't matter... You can see the tracks... All the way from the White House...  and no experienced and versatile artist would let a client leave out the door until the client's hair was perfect. And no you could not do hair with comments like you made because folks would drive you out of business. People do not expect miracles just a fair exchange. She/Rachel has good eyes..She saw that hole; but decided to just keep it moving. I would have snapped her in two that's how pissed I was at being there 8 hours... This is why I stated yes I like it; at some point, it just not worth it to yell and scream somemore at someone's whose ego is that big.
And lastly, I do not want anyone else to experience what I did... take it or leave it; but you will not diminish what happened to me....

Are you serious? the tracks are loose.. hair loose can be seen and pulled through the net. See the problem we have here is consistent execution..Again, as mentioned ...she is a great colorist... technique is the issue.. And after careful consideration.. I simply can't waste my time going back to someone who if they would have taken the time to look at my hair instead of pushing back about braiding my hair down and did a consultation... she would have known the condition of my hair...

I am completely right.. you are misinformed my dear... Expert stylists do not make blunders with closures... If she needed guidance perhaps she should have come to BHM cause there are some damn good self installers on these here boards..I could not see the "gaping hole" in terms of superficial appearance the style looked okay... Hell I was lucky not to go into a diabetic coma in that joint as looooooog as I was there.  My wish for you in the NEW YEAR is to go to a stylist who does you the same way I was treated....
 
Best wishes!!!!

Dear... I am in the NEWBIE section because I chose to post here. You made a serious flaw in assuming that I am a novice in the weave department.  I have have been getting weave longer than you have been on this planet. I have received weaves from coast to coast and from kitchens to salons.... I have never ever had such a poor azz closure/cut/weave/ period. And lastly, look for her work elsewhere... the problem with that logic is it is just that... you may go in there like I did and receive a rachet azz job....  I AM IN THE RIGHT.... you definately have me heated up.. You must be a client of her's lmao!

Yes and a bird up in here got the nerve to saw it was my fault... IF I could braid my own hair ... I would not be going to get a weave done...right... BHM got all kinds of info on doing your own thing.... 750 with tracks showing and a jacked up closure... but guess that was my fault as one of the posters so eloquently stated.

And let me keep it real. she did a jacked up azz weave, period...Miracles..everytime I read that tomfoolery...my blood pressure goes up.... It is a miracle for a client to expect a good weave? Girl, I do not know who or where you get your weaves..customer service, setting realistic expectations for the client and executing the clients vision is the role of the stylist. Dear, if I possessed all of those attributes..I would be in my bathroom working out my own weaves. The issue is not the money. The issue is the technique....and that I cannot control.  A miracle from the owner would have been a flawless execution of my request... I did the right thing posting my experience.... here and on yelp... Thank God I found a stylist on BHM-Monet Crochet...who has  very consistent feedback and actually cares about hair health... Whatever.. Sorry if I hurt your feelings, just keeping it real

You've been getting weaves for over 30 years and you didn't think to check your weave before you left the salon?  ESPECIALLY since you were on your way to an event?  Was that your first encounter with the stylist?

Bre, I did not check the top of the weave. Thats definately on me; but she had to have seen this?? Correct???  After all I had only been there from 9 to 5; hell I was tired. But more importantly, does she get a pass on technique?  See we can play that game all day in this forum. No experienced stylist who cares about their work would even want the client's closure to look like that... period....
 
To your second question.... this was my first encounter with the stylist.... a  friend told me that she did her hair and it looked fabulous. Technique/flatness/color/etc.  But upon revisiting my friend with my horror story ....she revealed that Rachel corrected only her bangs.. She did not do an install..... and since she has a bang...and long in the back... she told me that her crown was left out... Her hair is dark and it looks really really good. Again, does the stylist get a pass with the technique used in my hair? ..Naw she does not..
 
Trust me... it is a lesson learned hard... at the end of the day... I gave her a trust deposit... based upon what I thought was her work on my friend's hair. Perhaps, I am old school in that assumption that stylists care about their rep on every head that leaves out the door-not some of them... some of you folks are missing the point.... She had to have seen her closure...and felt like whatever... cause anybody who cares about their work would not have made such a  novice mistake...  I don't mind paying for someone's creative effort. Not once have I stated that I wanted money back..etc. Instead, I am struggling with the fact that she knew her technique was flawed. I love her coloring but not her cuts and weave patterns... period
!
 
Folks are more than welcome in a free market to go to whomever they chose.....
 
And listen very closely, in the 30 years I been getting weaves; from kitchens to salons. never never had this happen. Y

Im just saying you should not have left without addressing. I would still like to see photos. That closure is ridiculous and I would have fought her if she didnt fix it before I left. Im saying as a consumer you should get what you paid for but first you have to know what that id. Varies with each stylist. Why are you in newbie section if you been wearing weaves so long? Just curious. Dont stone me. Judge Joe Brown will ask all these things when you sue. You prove my point by adding you didnt ask enough questions of your own friend before making an appointment.

I promise not to stone you... But my court of preference however is Judge Judy... because all we need is the facts:
 
1. Technique is flawed- does not make any sense to see any addtional pictures..because the front looks fine..
2. I made the mistake of not looking at the top of my head due to my own desire to get the hell out of there and the color looked amazing and while the cut was not what I envisioned..I just wanted to leave.
3. I paid for a blonde bob that was "not down my back". In terms of bob's color- i said blonde not platinum..she got this right
4.  She did not dye the tops of the wefts..they are dark brown.. therefore... the tracks around the leaveout are can be seen prominently due to this. As God is my witness, I did not see this or I would have checked that.. Because my hair is so light. and fine; you can obviously see the tracks see pix 1.....  Therefore, it is reasonable that she saw it ..but elected to just keep quiet.
5. the person who referred me to her obviously chose not to disclose that she did not do her weave. Instead-she corrected her bangs... Only after I called her did she state this fact and commence to apologize and say repeatedly- I am so sorry-She has to fix this.
6. I was more than 3 hours behind schedule on Saturday, December 29, 2012 the day of the install. My appointment was at 9 am I did not leave until 5 pm. I did not do my due diligence in taking the mirror at the completion of the instrall and really getting into my hair.. Plantiff's fault..translation... my fault
7. When I was seated in the braiding chair. I advised her niece that I wanted Rachel to braid my hair. Her niece asked, "Do you have a problem with me?" My response was-" I do not know you to have a problem with you. I would like for Rachel to braid my hair. When she told me that Rached does not braid. I said, this is BS let me call my friend as she was adamant that Rachel braided hair. At this point, Rachel ushered me in the back to discuss this off the floor. I told her that it was disrespectful  to have me there all day. I also told her that mutual acquantance told me that she braided hair. I asked her point blank if she braided hair. Her response was yes. I said why did your niece lie!!! Hell I should have bounced then!!!
8. Her niece braided my hair. down because Rachel told me that I would be in there even longer if she did it... She instucted her niece on what to do from her station.
9. These are experts  so who am I to tell you to use synthetic. If I tell you I do not have a perm, myhair is dark brown and lifts in like 5 minutes, and you see I have fine hair.. An expert weaver does not have to be prompted to pull out the synthetic hair.
10. Hair sewn in... tracks were cut and layed on top of one another near my part..so they are lumpy. see pixs
11. Flat weaves and flawless closures-two attributes of competent weave artists.
12. I do not have one day of Cosmetology school but I have read enough posts on BHM to know that a good stylist... does the following- does a consultation, talks about how you want your hair. repeats what they heard you say... tell you if its realistic and executes based on mutual agreement
13. After the install. She did not thin out the weave.. so when I take the flat iron its so much hair that I can barely part it. I told her that I wanted something I could do on my own..if I needed to
I can barely style this BS
14. I trusted her work on incomplete or shall I say misleading information.

I going to ride this thread til the wheels fall off... It is no excuse for what happened to me given the cost I paid period.  We can dance around this all night long... For 750 the weave should have been flawless. I posted the fatel errors. Threads are coming loose 9 days later, the hair will not hold a curl..... trust me...I let people walk....when appropriate..I would never say the weave was jacked and it is not.. I am not here to be libelous folks... This is business...
 
... Going to shout from the mountain top what I experience.

Bre, I did not check the top of the weave. Thats definately on me; but she had to have seen this?? Correct???  After all I had only been there from 9 to 5; hell I was tired. But more importantly, does she get a pass on technique?  See we can play that game all day in this forum. No experienced stylist who cares about their work would even want the client's closure to look like that... period....
 
To your second question.... this was my first encounter with the stylist.... a  friend told me that she did her hair and it looked fabulous. Technique/flatness/color/etc.  But upon revisiting my friend with my horror story ....she revealed that Rachel corrected only her bangs.. She did not do an install..... and since she has a bang...and long in the back... she told me that her crown was left out... Her hair is dark and it looks really really good. Again, does the stylist get a pass with the technique used in my hair? ..Naw she does not..
 
Trust me... it is a lesson learned hard... at the end of the day... I gave her a trust deposit... based upon what I thought was her work on my friend's hair. Perhaps, I am old school in that assumption that stylists care about their rep on every head that leaves out the door-not some of them... some of you folks are missing the point.... She had to have seen her closure...and felt like whatever... cause anybody who cares about their work would not have made such a  novice mistake...  I don't mind paying for someone's creative effort. Not once have I stated that I wanted money back..etc. Instead, I am struggling with the fact that she knew her technique was flawed. I love her coloring but not her cuts and weave patterns... period
!
 
Folks are more than welcome in a free market to go to whomever they chose.....
 
And listen very closely, in the 30 years I been getting weaves; from kitchens to salons. never never had this happen. Y


No she does not get a pass but, why trust her so much?  She was a stranger and even if you did she a 100 banging installs she did, you should still check.  But, I'm sure you know that by now.  She sounds lazy and I don't know if this is how she works but, hopefully something gets resolved.

Bre and I agree. All we are saying is that if anyone does your weave for 50 bucks or 750, make sure you get all in your head before you leave. Assume nothing. Nothing about that closure is right and yes, she should not have let you walk out like that. She figured she would try you and let you walk out that way. You said you liked it when she asked before you walked out the door. She should have fixed it but figured why when you were happy. Doesnt make it right but it is what it is. Questioning my weave history? I post all over BHM and have been since 2006. I never had anyone do me like this cause I would not let them. 750 and that closure is worth a scene if necessary. You're mad at the wrong person.

I'm so sorry that this happened to you! I'm not going to repeat what's been said already because you said you don't handle disputes well and I'm the same way. However, I honestly couldn't go another day w/my hair looking like that after paying $750. I would call her up and nicely ask if I can schedule an appointment. I know this may be difficult since you are pissed but trust me she will respond better to this approach. When I got there I would nicely explain my concerns and ask if anything could be done to correct this situation.
 
Sadly, this stylist is not really known for doing great installs in Baltimore. She is known to be overpriced but lacks the expertise to back it up, not throwing shade it's just is what it is...The salon is more of a fashion show than stylist that know what they are doing. There is one stylist in there; her name excapes me but she's decent. She use to have one side of her hair shaved can't remeber her name. She is amazing w/color and cut, not sure about her weaves.
 
I know that you may not want to know of other stylist but my current stylist is amazing! She is very talented and her styleseat and pictures prove it. She may even be willing to fix your current install...Her name is Malaika and trust me she's one of the best!

Correction I am not mad at you..simply addressing your thoughts... Don't take my responses personal ... I really do not care about what happened to you or how much you post. This is my experience and you gave your opinion.  I simply posted my experience and  you responded with a dissertation and like you are a client of hers. But, I going to let that go...bottom line. Rachel did a jack up azz weave on my head period,,,ain't you or nobody else going to tell me anything different. She disrespected my time.. and I told her azz that... so much so that she stated," I would not want to be on your bad side." I was already steamed so I wanted to just get the $%^%&^*& out of that place.
 
Did you read my posts? Does not seem like you did . I called her back and she could not process that tracks were showing and that she did not dye the tracks near my leave out correctly. You can literally see the track impression and forget leaving the house with out Paul Mitchell. Instead, she stated that maybe I needed more hair.... when less than 9 days ago she handed me back hair and said that I had a small head. This is the junction that I decided not to fool around with her. I told her that the tracks needed to be taken out at my leave out and dyed blond instead of the very dark brown color it is...but she did not get it... So she did not get another chance to get more  money out of me via purchasing more hair. The stylist knows that I was not happy with my hair.....listen very, very closely I informed her that my hair was not to my liking.

I think anyone who is charging $750 for two bundles of hair and an install is on some bs. There is no weave in the world that is worth $750 so anything she could have done would have been a get-over. I have seen some damn good installs and none of them were $750. I think a lot of times people pay for the big name and not the actual product or service. Sorry this happened to you.

@ Mzkaliky, where do you get your hair knowledge and info to believe that 750 for that ish is acceptable, or the amount the stylist charges is not hard to believe. I know some celebrity stylist charge 400 for a sew-in and closure, she could of got some nice virgin Chinese hair for those lengths for a way cheaper price. Still would of spent less than 750, and hair would of came out looking gorgeous. How can you not expect looking some-what like beyonce, with those prices? Your hair can be burnt, fried, and barely have edges...but a great stylist would still know how to work with what she is presented. If boonquisha in the hood can hook a rachett head, than so can a stylist charging that high!

@Op, I understand you got caught up in the hype and thought since you were paying that high, than the quality would be better. However, next time inspect their work before you leave any salon. Do your research, and I'm sure there are threads on finding a good stylist around your area. I understand your a newbie, so we are here to help. There is nothing tolerable about that install, cause I paid 150 for my sew-in +180 for my weave. Chile boo at what some are saying πŸ˜’.

Mad, um girl no. I read everything that was on this thread, and I am not repeating anything you said. She doesn't need to learn alot more about weaves, this could of happened to anybody (even gurus). Btw my hair always looks fly too , even though nobody never said anything about yours.

I was contacted via the acquaintance who referred me to Rachel...and advised that if I removed my Yelp posting.... Rachel would refund my money....... upon calling her with my brother listening in.... Rachel proceeded to tell me that  I told her that I liked my hair.... If the readers of this thread reach back...to my first post... I stated that I told her that I liked my hair... because I did not want to get into a confrontation and was so terribly disappointed and tired that I just wanted to get the &**)()out of her establishment. I had already had heated words with her about the loooong wait for service. Therefore, I told her that at that point, I was so over the entire experience... so it was best to just leave.... without anymore drama....
 
 I waited impatiently for her to present her side of the matter.... yada yada.. she has been doing hair for 15 years and takes her business seriously and I did not give her a chance to "fix my hair. 15 years really resonanted for me because a weavologist in the game that long would not make a mistakes like not closing a weave properly or not using synthetic hair to braid a client's whose hair is very fine.... oh well.I digress.
 
After really thinking about what she said .. I proceeded to walk her through my yelp post and reinform her that I did call her and tell her that my tracks were showing in the top of my head and that the mutual acquaintance saw the top of my head the same day it was done.. ......saw the violation... I told her that the same person whom she had called to reach out to me about the yelp post had the pictures of the top of my head and saw said infraction on my head.  Obviously, this girl was stuck on the fact that I had no gripes about the color... I gave her the analogy that when one purchases a two piece meal and only receives the chicken... they have not received what they paid for... translation.. the cut was jacked up.... the weave was flawed so the colored hair does not mattter. I guess for her she wanted to still be paid for the color.... Oh well.... this is the junction where she and I do not agree...  Going further, she told me that she had pictures of the weave.. okay... whatever... I have pictures too... And lastly, I feel that a stylist charging that kind of money would have nailed it... executed the client's wishes and certainly would have laid the tracks in a fashion that would ensure that they could not be seen ...
 
And finally, she told me that she just wanted to be done with it and asked how I would like my money back... I told her and advised that I would mail the hair back... my 750 dollar weave was in my head a grand total of 9 days... She told me no..keep the hair and that I would see my refund of 750 in 1 to  2 days....fyi...have yet to see the refund. This was a hard lesson learned... This thread's purpose was to give me a chance to vent and most of the replies I received were supportative.... Lesson learned . speak up .....calmly and firmly....and by no means leave without a through assessment of the final product.  For real.... I think that I was carried at the end of the day... and I can't change that.....
 
As for the acquaintance..She and I had a terse convo.. because she told me that she did not have anything to do with the matter...no he said she said.; but, she got all into the middle of asking me to call Rachel and that I would get a refund if I removed the post from yelp......  But, in the end..she did not share the picture of the whole in my weave with her stylist friend...or what she saw with her own two eyes the same day the weave was installed...Lesson learned here... is that she was less than candid about who did her hair.....from the onset and continued to play 50.....
 
 
Anyhow..I am waiting for my refund........

Thank you... I really appreciate this site and contributors like you...  I learned a very hard lesson..... What gets me is that she really believes that my weave was okay.. her comments about her pictures... whatever... the top of my head was a mess..... period.... also... I did not want her to fix it.. she had 9 hours to fix my hair correctly...the first go.... just messy all the way around

But I am glad you are getting the word out and you did nothing wrong, it is not easy to be confrontational to a hair stylist. You even complimented on her good hair coloring skills you are not even biased. That is why I like your review, hope everything goes right in this situation. Leave and Learn.

WTF ??!!! You pay $750 for a hairstyle and you get this ???

First of, i wouldnt pay that much for a hairstyle ! the most that I paid was $100 and i still think it was too expensive, call me cheap maybe BUT this is exactly why i dont go to the salon anymore, my hair has been damaged enough by 'professional' hairstylists.

Plus this happened to me once, I spent 9 hours at the salon, I was completely knakered, braids were too tight, the weave was CRAP !! I was 18 so I didnt feel like confronting the hairstylist. I just paid and left. Took off the weave the next day.

I know it sound ridiculous but at least I have learnt my lesson:
1. always check the work of the hairstylist
2. have a consultation where u explain what u want EXACTLY and ask if she is able to do it.
3. during the process, if there is something that you dont like or dont want, SAY IT  !!! ITS YOUR MONEY Pinch lool !

OR DO IT YOURSELF !!  ( my personal favorite Tongue)

Well we will see... I don't believe that I will see the refund...If I do... I stand corrected. I am just steamed that Rachel thinks its okay to install some ish like she did.  To boot, I think she believes that she does everyones hair okay so ^&*((  my experience. I have no reason to lie or embellish... the picture of the closure says more than I can sanely articulate. Smile 
 
Instead of apologizing she went to ...you did not let me fix it.. Hell she had 9 hours to fix it right.... There is no way in hell that I would go back to that Salon...

I tried to be fair and honest in my review...but, she does not get it.. She f___ked my hair up... the top was crazy... I did not know she did this until it was pointed out to me...
 
And lastly. I do not believe she will follow through on the refund because she feels like she did nothing wrong and I should have let her fix it ... My experience with her warrants my feeling that she will not touch my fine textured hair. This hair has to last me until I am casket ready......Smile

Why did she change her mind?  When you said earlier that she was going to give you a refund, I was thinking then that she wasn't going to cough up $750, that easily.  We'll what about redoing your hair to compensate for the horrible job that she did?  I'm sorry to hear this.

Hi there,  thank you for your understanding.
 
How did I know that I was not getting my money back? Rachell got mad when I told her that she did a poor azz job doing my weave. She went on a tangent telling me that I told her I liked it. Just as you would do a child, I had to redirect her that I paid for a weave, color and cut all  three equal a style. Going further, shame on me for believing that she would refund my money. The totality of the overall experience suggested that she would never give me back my money...but, I believed her azz because she had her "friend" call me. I mean who asks for your card number and states that you will recieve a refund in 1 to 2 days? I mean she should quit her day job and move to Hollywood... she is an actor.
 
Professionals who care about there work do not argue with the client. I mean I took the hair out 9 days later. If I were trying to get over on her I would have the hair in my head. And who says that I had to let her redo my hair.. that sh*t was so horrible I needed a full weave done over. When I called her she could not process what I was saying.  She never apologized never was humble about the &&*()( she did to my hair. I essentially needed a closure done and the tracks removed from the top with my left out.  Moreover, I called her the 30th of December to tell her that the tracks were showing...  The tracks began to  unraveled under the net at the same time . That is the truth period.  Rachel treated me like sh*t, because if she were professional in her treatment of me she would have been honest about the following- closure and dye job being a hot azz mess on my head and the loose tracks being an issue since she confirmed that I did have very fine hair. All of this could have been avoided if she would have taken the time to do my hair instead of reminding me of the favor she did me by taking me in on Saturday ... Okay... enough of my soap box..
 
There was no way I am letting her touch the hair I have my head, again. My hair has to last me until I am placed in my casket. My questions to her and her 15 years experience is how did my closure go so horribly wrong? And why did my tracks in the back under the net become loose within 3 days of the instal? and why did she think that after I sat in her salon for 8 hours that I would come back.  She robbed me point blank.  Maybe I can't change that, getting my money back.  But, what I can do is tell everyone what happend to me.
 
Thanks for dropping into this thread....

I believe you and I looked at the Yelp entry. I think some fake glowing reviews were planted after yours.
Take this as a lesson learned althogh if it were me I'd probably take her to small claims court. That's too much money.

Girl, Rache will end up losing a lot more money than $750 because of your review on Yelp and on here sooner or later. Consider that revenge.

Rachel was less than candid with my promised refund.  I mean who takes your card number and tells you that you will receive your refund in 1 to 2 days; knowing that they never processed the refund.  An actress... Whatever.. I am  Rachel did a jacked up wEAVE. I find it very ironic that a person who has been twirling a hair wand for 15 years has little feedback about her work on sites. First strike...
As I stated previously, people want to be blessed in 2013 not robbed  by artists like Rachel who do not execute their work consistently.

In addition, this girl has a backstage tour... who is going to her and letting her do their weaves? I am sure that they love their hair..but I bet that its a beehive in terms of the pattern under the hair. I mean you need a brain surgeon who can delicately cut all the tracks out. Real talk that what happened to me 1 hour to get that ish out of my head......
