Incident = This salon puts in weaves so I thought that they SHOULD be able to remove mine. I had a sewn in weave put in by another salon (PA) to save my hair from heat over a period of 6+ months because it was thinning due to perimenopause. I had had the same PA salon install a second weave by one (1) beautician back in June (original one was installed end of April).
I originally went to the salon because my sister had referred the salon because a beautician blew here hair out and styled it. After I arrived at Visions, I explained to at least 4 people that worked on my hair how to take out the weave. I also explained why it was put in and why I needed to save as much of my hair as possible. Incidentally, the original PA salon beautician said the my hair had grown within 2\" of the weave-which is long!
The hair was anchored by rubber bands of my hair cornrowed in which the tracks of human hair were sewn into. Instead of the salon personnel trying to take out the weave (which took over 2 hours)-THEY CUT MY HAIR OFF!!!
I DIDN\'T NEED TO GO TO A HAIR SALON TO HAVE A WEAVE TAKEN OUT IF IT WAS JUST GOING TO BE CUT OFF!!! I COULD HAVE CUT IT OFF MYSELF FOR FREE!
Damage Resulting = My hair is now substantially shorter (by 8") than when I started out in April with the original weave, and I lost my investment of $1300 (2 weaves plus tip) that I paid to have the weave put in to save my hair. The back of my hair is 1\" long!
I will never go to a salon, especially, a Black-owned salon ever again! They haven't applied the correct level of skills to just put a sign on the door and open a salon.
