What Our Clients Say About Us

I cannot tell a lie, Tawoda is A-mazing!! No matter what the style, I can depend on her to make me look more wonderful than my desired expectations. Honestly, I communicate what I want, set a date, show up and relax. I completely trust her, I don’t have to worry about the outcome of my style.

My review is long overdue. Tawoda has tree-braided my hair twice and I love her and her craft tremendously. She is patient and seems to know exactly what I want and delivers in a big way. I’ve had the same hair dresser in San Diego for almost a decade and I was contemplating flying back down to there to get my hair braided but then I found Tawoda. Very professional. Sweet. She made me feel beautiful. Thank you Tawoda…LOVE YOU!!!

Towada ROCKS! She is a magician in beautifying! She knows hair and most important she won’t say NO to any wish of yours about your hair! She can braid anything! She really is a master of doing hair, she just understands it! My hair is thin and fine. I got a partial weave. I had so many different colors of hair but she managed to puzzle it all perfectly in no time and it lasted!

The girls in the salon are really fast and they’ll know how to do hair!

I feel very fortunate to have found this place, Tawoda was very gracious and understanding when I needed an emergency appointment. She communicates promptly and went out of her way to accommodate my needs.

My 2 strand twists were done by Josephine and I am very happy with the results. My only regret is that I didn’t find this place sooner before I chopped off my dreadlocks. I think they would have been able to salvage them.

What an awesome place! All the ladies here are so nice and funny. I came here to get senegelease twist and very long ones at that. My hair came out so fab and they don’t even hurt. Usually when I get my hair braided my head is sore that I can’t even function lol. Not the case here. Everyone has told me how gorg my hair is. I will def go back to try other braiding styles again.

Visited Hair by Tawoda. Greeted with an opening smile for the morning.  Hair was done by the Queen herself Ms. Tawoda Reffell. Tawoda has been doing my hair since 1996. She is outstanding, and very professional. She is always on time and precise in her work. Never disappointed. Will highly recommend her.

Tawoda is extremely professional and she definitely knows what she is doing.  I haven’t had my hair braided in 10+ years so I was pretty nervous.  I would recommend this salon to everyone.  Please give her a call, you’ll be glad you did!  THANK YOU Tawoda for making this experience so pleasant. You now have another customer for life:-)
