    Bee, by far is the best hairstylist I've had. She is really flexible when it comes to appointments; while delivering undivided attention to her customers. Her work speaks for its self.

  • 5/5 stars July 22, 2014

    I had a great experience while visiting Braids By Bee. Benite took time out to wash and dry my hair thoroughly. She made sure that I was comfortable the whole time while adding extensions to my locks and suggested tips for proper maintenance. Overall, I felt pampered and well satisfied after my visit. Very professional!!

    My experience with Bee is the most fantastic experince ever! I give her 5 stars! Bee can do any hairstyle desired. She is very versatile! I have been going to Bee for 5 yrs now! She is very consistent and her work is a piece of art! Her hairstyles speak heavy volume. I recommend anyone to try her out! You will not be disappointed with the best service at Braids by Bee the Braiding Depot!

    Bee was very attentive to my needs. She offered multiple beneficial suggestions regarding my hair care. I have since returned to her on three subsequent occasions and plan to continue there.

    I first went to bee's because I was going to a concert and wanted a quick hair do, apparently that was the wrong thing to ask for. .... At bee's you get no quick fix, you get great hair care and that is definitely what I got. A year later and I'm still getting outstanding hair care. Keep up the good work bee..... you definitely give me my money's worth.

    Bee did my aunts micros. She is Puerto Rican (so u kno the texture)and her hair is thinning. Not to mention we drove from Royal Palm Beach. We only waited 10-20 minutes and, after the last client left, were the only ones there which was great. It took 5 hours but it honestly did not even feel like it. She's an awesome person, very professional and her, my aunt and I talk for every minute of those 5 hours. She loves what she does and any REAL person would be able to see that! Don't be fooled by these bad reviews.... people expect the prices, in a studio, to be the same as they friend who braid out they house.... smh.... I THINK NOT! she values herself and her talent, understand, only business professionals can comprehend and appreciate this. Close minded, envious, non-career having individuals are the only ones that will question price. If you don't like it, hang up or walk out. That's your opinion. You get what you pay for so if you want to chance the girl u just met who live at the corner house down the street, by all means do so! But don't knock somebody else hustle and self worth cause u wanna be cheap. If you have a problem with your style, go to her! Not social media to try to ruin her business. If you constantly have a bad service or experience, then I understand but don't be evil before looking for a resolution. Today, I Made a friend and someone who, like myself, decided not to waist or depreciate her talent..... best part was.... I wasn't even the one sitting in the chair.

    Much love,

  • 5/5 stars December 3, 2012

    I recently cut off my permed hair and I wasn't sure how I wanted to style my hair. I decided that I would get braids. The worst part is always looking for a stylist. I started searching the web for some ideas when I came upon Braids by Bee. Once I saw the different hairstyles and textures that she was working with through her photo gallery, I knew I found the right place. My micros were completed within 4 hours, something that I thought was impossible. My hair was so beautiful, and neat thanks to Bee and her stylist working together. I will definitely go back once I figure out what style I want next. Thank you ladies.

    What I love the most about The Braiding Depot, is that they are very professional, courteous, and fast service. I had the single long braids done, and Bee had me looking Chic and Elegant. She is so creative with her hands! If you are traveling to Florida, I strongly recommend Braids by Bee.

    As a busy mom and professional, I really value my time. With that said, I went to Braids by Bee today for micro twists and was out in record time! I was impressed with how neat my style was and the service was excellent. Many thanks to Bee and staff for a job well done!

  • 5/5 stars September 5, 2012

    I love going to The Braiding Depot because I'm always pressing for time & don't ever want to be in a salon all day. Bee is very professional in keeping appointments & getting you in & out of the shop. She is also very creative I often tell her a style I want & she add her own twist to make if unique for me. The atmosphere at the shop is welcoming and clean.

  • 5/5 stars September 5, 2012

    Bee has been braiding my hair for many years and she does an outstanding job.. She is fast and her braid styles are amazing! I will continue to use Braids by Bee i have never had my hair braided sooo perfect then that of the work from Braids By Great Job! Not to mention she and her staff are sweethearts many thanks!

  • 5/5 stars September 5, 2012

    I personally LOVE Braids By Bee, its the only place that I go to get my hair braided. I have tried other shops in South Florida and none compare to Braids By Bee! Bee and Trish are friendly, professional and always do a great job! The prices are affordable and you are in and out in a reasonable amount of time. Above all, whenever I go Braids By Bee I feel comfortable, because you go in as a customer but you leave a friend. :-D

    NOT WORTH THE MONEY..
    the extensions looked great when i walked out the shop, but the very next day while running my fingers through my hair the extenstions easily came out. and a second look made me realize they look very raggedy. i went back and she repair them, but not even a week later.. they were fallen out again. i wish i spent my money on something else. will not be going back EVER!

    Benite C. from Braids By Bee @ The Braiding Depot replied to this review on September 5, 2012:

    You wanted your dreads extended, not wrapped from top to bottom. Extensions are made to stay in but every now and then you may lose one or two thats normal that is why you have to come back for maintenance every 5 weeks. Dread Extensions are treated just like real dreads, just like you have to maintain real locks you also have to maintain extensions. Real locks break off as well due to everyday duties.

  • 2/5 stars July 28, 2012

    The current twists I had in (from another stylist) started falling out after 2 weeks so I called Bee and right away was able to set up an impromptu in-person consultation. I explained my needs for a short length Afro twist similar to what I was wearing. Bee said my current hair was poor quality, assured me she knew what I wanted/needed and quoted me a price of $200. When I asked about buying hair, Bee said that the $200 included everything. I arrived at 9:59am the next day for my 10am appt to find the shop was closed. When I called her, Bee seemed annoyed when I asked how long before someone arrived and told they *KNEW* what time my appt was and that my stylist would be there in 5 minutes. Once I got into the shop (at 10:10am) I was stunned when the stylist told me it would be an add'l $50 to take out my current twists, something Bee had never mentioned. I let them know that I was NOT willing to pay $250 for Afro twists.
    In the end the stylist and I took out my twists. I walked out with what looked like rope twists with hair that was much longer than I wanted. Uneven lengths in front and 'bangs' down to my chin... UGH...I hate it! Needless to say, trust me, I'm never going back!

    Benite C. from Braids By Bee @ The Braiding Depot replied to this review on July 31, 2012:

    This woman, does not understand that Braiding Hair and Unbraiding hair is both a separate service that you must pay for. No one comes to a shop with there prior hairstyle and expect for us to waste 2 hours time to take out single plaits. It took us 2 hours to remove your braids, and You didn't want to pay for that service. On our site it is listed $50-$75 for removal braiding service. You didn't even want to pay for a wash, so we had to do your hair soiled. You are so confused you don't know what you ask for, you got Kinky rope twist with hair included, this is what I mean by everything included and this is what you ask for. As you said you are new to this. Please do your research before you go to any shop. No one has time to waste and no one works for free. You cried so you won't have to pay the extra $50 so we let you go without paying this fee, so next time we no better than to feel sorry for anyone, because you turned around and want to take it out on us on the web. We arrived 5 min. late on a Busy Sat. I worked till 8pm and didn't take a lunch break I respect everyone's time. I didn't eat until 8pm on Sat. So never did I take a break and you were done within 4 hours for a service that should have taken 6-8 hours. I hope you find yourself a stylist, that will deal with you cause we don't need clients like you at our shop to tell us how to run our business. Go back to your other stylist, you obviously have your own personal issues.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
