    These are bogus reviews probably written by McKenzie. She did my hair once which is in her dark basement in her house and she did not do a good job. I would not recommend her at all.

    Hi Sandra,
    I respect your opinion but be rest assured that none of these sincere reviews were written by me...that will be foolishness. They were written by satisfied clients who return always to get their hair done when deemed necessary .
    As for your recommendation,uh ha,u can keep it,I don't need it at all.
    My work speak for itself,I can't even remember who you are ,have a peaceful life.

    McKenzie was fabulous! I got some kinky twists a few months back and loved them. She was very friendly and made me very comfortable. She made the time fly by with wonderful conversation and there was very little pain involved! I will definitely be a regular and will also be calling TODAY for an appointment!

    Mckenzie is the best! Not only is she good at what she does, she made me feel so welcome and i could have talked to her for forever. So sweet! I am Caucasian and got four dread extensions done and they look and feel great. I have got so many compliments! :)

    McKenzie did an excellent job! My braids did not hurt like most other times I have gotten my hair braided, and she was also very kind. My hair looks great and I have already received many compliments on it! I look forward to coming back and getting my hair done in the future. Thank you McKenzie!

    Mckenzie did an awesome job. First not being familiar with hair went to the shop told them I needed hair for micros sold me wrong hair Mckenzie informed me of that right kind wasnt rude at all. She was very professional gave me tips and knowledge to keep my hair growing. I will return to her while here in Chattanooga.

    Didnt return my call and then said they couldn't do a simple braid that would take 10 minutes

    Africanbraids U. from African Braids Unlimited replied to this review on September 17, 2012:

    Bridget,the reason why i couldn't do it was because there was no time,was really buzy @ such short notice!!!

    I had my Kinky Twist done by McKenzie today and she did a gorgeous job. Usually when I get braids i am in pain, but she is so gentle. I will be a repeated customer and recommend her 100%.

    McKenzie is great!! She will be my hair stylist from now on. McKenzie is prompt, very professional, does excellent work and the atmosphere in her styling area is very comfortable.
