Where shall I start? I started my Loc journey last year at exactly this time (November). I had already been to 2 other locticians, and Sky is the third and final. The high caliber of work that was done was the whipped cream on top of the Chai Tea Latte-so to speak-for me that is. I called on Veteran's day, and even though Sky was busy running errands with family, she took my call, listened to my dilemma surrounding my negative past experiences, and booked an appointment with me right away. About a week later, a few days before our appointment I asked if she would have an in-person consultation with me. She agreed, and saw me the same day.
She sprang into action, carefully examining my tresses as soon as I walked in the door, asking me pertinent questions that my last two stylists didn't even bother asking. Then she demonstrated one loc, using the interlocking tool (an amazing one I had never seen before), and before I could blink it was done. No pain, but tight, clean and neat. AND, she WRAPPED the loc so it looked uniform, primped and beautiful (something that neither of the previous locticians did). I run a business, and I need to keep a professional appearance. This put her at the top of my list instantly.
The actual day of my appointment was even more fantastic. I arrived at Sky's Hair Oasis and there was Sky waiting for me with a smile on her face. We began right away with the shampoo, which smelled wonderful. Next, she put a treatment in my hair, (which also didn't happen at the other salon) and proceeded to let me sit with it for a few minutes. Next another wonderful shampoo then off to the chair.
While Sky worked on my locs, she allowed me to see her work, in the process and explained what she was doing in real time. She also recommended simple, natural products to use on my hair to keep it looking fabulous, healthy and fly, as well as when to wash it next. She was fast, didn't take a bunch of breaks and had me on my way early to my next engagement.
I actually felt like a client, a family member and a friend. I now have confidence in my crown, and I know when I walk out my door, I am put together. My students even commented on how my hair looked, saying it was "very pretty" (they are elementary school students)! I am very pleased with my experience, and look forward earnestly to my next appointment.
THANK YOU SKY!! It is people like you who take the time to execute integrity, professionalism and tact, while educating those of us that are new on this journey of locs.
