Editorial review from Citysearch 9/5/2012

I wanted to know have the service that is provided at this salon changed? I am looking for a salon that specialize in natural hair. Can anyone reply and give me some feedback other than what I have read here. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/21/2012

just came from my first appointment at OMNH and i'm expressed and satisfied. :) my first press after going natural was completely pleasant and Erica knew her stuff. I've found a new salon. more

Very Satisfied 11/20/2011

I'll admit that after reading some of the negative reviews I hesitated going here but, thank God I did!!! Sometimes other people opinions are helpful, but I liked to decide for myself (afterall, some of the feedbck is positive too). I just moved to Atlanta. I have locks and my 22yr old daughter is natural but wears her hair straight. I set up an appointment for both of us. When we got there we were greeted by Erica and another stylist. My roots needed to colored, but since Ive only let my stylist from my home town do it , I was just going to wait for her to do it, plus I was thinking if they're not good it's best to wait . I mentioned it to Erica. She explained that if she thought that she couldnt match the color she wouldnt take that chance She was helpful & seemed confident, so I agreed. The color was dead on! My daughter loved her hair too, plus she got a badly needed trim, no charge! We both left very happy in a timely fashion. Nice! more

worth the $ 11/20/2011

Ive been natural for 2yrs, I usually do my own hair, but I needed a break. I went here hoping that it wouldnt be as bad as some of the places Ive been & since, I was referred by a coworker (who was transitioning) I figured it should be cool. Everyone was nice when I walked in. 2 ppl had just got their hair finished. I can tell one girl was a regular, the other girl said it was her 1st time, & she'd be bck. I really liked their hair! Usually I can tell how things will go, by how my hair is washed. It was one of the best Ive had in a loooong time! Erica did my hair. She was easy to talk to ( I had a lot of questions,lol) I expected to pay @ least around $100 (the going rate) & got what I paid for, she trimmed my hair to perfection! I got a mohawk w/ a rodset. No complaints here, I loved it...and I'll def be back! more

Twisted 7/16/2011

I went to the salon to get some two strand twists in my natural hair since I have never had my hair twisted by a professional. I wanted to see if there was a difference between a professional and what I can do at home since I usually do my own. more

Disappointed too and I haven't even been there! 6/11/2011

I'm with Misse21 on this. I'm growing my hair out and am looking for a salon that caters to natural hair. Like others, I was excited to find this place online. I am doing my research and this site comes up with this. I always read the reviews and like Misse21 with the disappointment. First, I noticed that the dates of the management/owner's replies are about a year and a half old which left room for hope that things might have changed. However, it is a sad statement that the manager/owner is so disrespectful and even replies to a client online in text message writing, of all things. You identify yourself as an owner and then write badly, adding to the negative representation that your business is already getting by an unsatisfied client. I understand your point about what wasn't put in the post by the unhappy client. It sheds some light on your point. Also, that you would name her though she didn't put her name in it, that displays a completel lack of respect of your client and frankly any client who will read this. You sound messy, extremely unprofessional and what's sad is that you're probably proud of the way you are behaving on here, ""defending"" your salon. To the contrary, you are damaging it and you cannot afford that these days, no matter how rich you might be. Sad situatioin that you are messing yourself up like this as it sounds like Zee is great and you have potential. I won't be going and will encourage others not to either. more

This place is a NIGHTMARE!!! 1/29/2011

I got my hair colored recently and the owner Erica rendered my service. She was very aggravating because #1, she kept answering her cell phone and talking to everyone but me, #2 She rushed through my color to take another client and it didn't even turn out to be what I expected. I did pay $125 which is way too much for a completely unprofessional service. Never again will I return!!!!! EVER!!!!!! Oh and she was almost twenty mins late, which would have been ok if the service was worth it. more

Does not use natural hair products 1/23/2011

The staff is very friendly and professional, however I was less than impressed by the products used. I was surprised that the my stylist used products containing petroleum and parabens (!) in my hair. She also sprayed my finished style (two strand twists) with (!) hairspray! I didn't even realize what products were being used initially as I completely relaxed expecting that as this was a ""natural hair care salon"", all of the products would be friendly to my hair. My scalp felt itchy and as a test I scratched my scalp and it flaked up from the hairspray. I went home upset and washed my hair out, $85 lost. more

Disappointed 11/16/2010

I was looking for a natural salon and enjoyed reading the positive reviews, but the OMNH responders comments to the negative kind of give off attitude. There is a positive way to dismiss negative comments or simply ignore them, but the sly negative responses scream ""attitude"" and ""unprofessionalism"". Professionals do not care to reference dissatisfied customers as ""haters"", but rather wish to identify the problem and hopefully offer a welcoming attitude that can repair the damaged business relationship. Furthermore, if the reviews are false, simply don't respond. Just a tip from a potential customer who was discouraged to try your business because of the way you responded to negative comments. more

Need a professional? Don't look here. 5/21/2010

My girlfriend had her hair done at this Nappy Hair. This was a bad day for me because she was basically traumatized for the rest of the day. My woman is smart beautiful and professional. This place is dirty, cheap and basically gets over on it's customers. i doubt they have many regulars. I will not go into detail; But this was an absolute waste of $125. She has short natural hair. This was a simple trim job and style at the most. Four hours later she just told them not to bother with the style. She paid the money and came home in complete disarray. Use a professional.. not them! Pros: The shampooer was nice and did a good job. Cons: The entirety of this establishment. more

Zee Rocks 12/9/2009

Went from relaxed to natural, was scared at first until I started letting Zee take me there. She is very patient and honest, does not rush you to make a decision, always respectful and polite. as for the salon as a whole, Zee makes up for the other stylist. Pros: zee is talented and patient Cons: price, not enough talented stylist more

Glad I tried them 11/16/2009

This is my first hair salon experience since I've gone natural and I have to say that I was very pleased with my results. First I have to thank all the ladies Monica, Zee, and Erica for making my experience a great one. I was there for about 2-3 hrs, but I completely understand and it's because of the process it takes depending on what you want and what type of hair you have. To sum it up, I went in for a press and curl and trim. Monica greeted me and immediately took me to get washed. I asked many questions and we decided to do a deep conditioner as well. The DC was excellent. It makes your hair soo soft, and also makes your scalp feel good. Once that was done Zee started on my hair and I can't believe how straight she got it. My hair is very very thick, but when she finished it was so bouncy and full of curl. I have gotten a lot of compliments and my hair looks healthy. I will be going back. Thanks Ladies! Pros: I did not have to wait, experience was great more

I haven't found better 11/11/2009

Zee pressed my hair and she is outstanding! I've been to a few places in the city no one is better than her! Rock on Zee! Pros: Zee is an awesome! Cons: no freebies :) more

An Anomaly! 11/10/2009

I've tried growing out my relaxer before but never have I been as excited as I am now! I came to this salon thinking if they cant do anything with ""this"", I don't know what I'm going to do. Maybe weave it again or relax it again, although I dreaded that idea! Thank God, they knew what they were doing! Erica, made me look as fabulous as all those celebrities she's has done! I feel so privileged. I can't get enough compliments so, I'm hooked too! Pros: the best nappy hair specialists in town! more

AMAZING PLACE! 10/26/2009

...so I called Oh my nappy hair salon not knowing what to expect. I had heard that these people were experts, but then again I'd heard that before about other places. So needless to say, I was leery. On the phone, when I first made my appointment the person was helpful and friendly. The price was not the cheapest , but I'm still a believer of the saying ""you pay for what you get"". Sure enough when I arrived , the salon was gorgeous. The music was nice and the art was great! I was immediately helped. I was sort of undecided about the style I wanted, but my stylist reassured me and informed me on the choices she thought would work best with my concerns. I was completely satisfied and thrilled with my hair! I will be back - I'm officially an Oh! my nappy hair fan!!! Pros: helpful, knowledgable, VERY skilled staff Cons: --- more

Never Again! 10/1/2009

I will never go back to OMNP Salon again after today. I arrived on time for my early morning appointment to receive a color and two-strand twist. Please note: I am fully aware that this service would take some time so I packed my patience. Pros: The other Hair Stylist Zee Cons: Everything else. more

Love This Place!! 8/31/2009

When I cut off all of my chemically treated long luxurious hair, it began to grow naturally into the ugly in between stage. So, I needed someone to help me create a hairstyle that would not take away from my beautifully featured face. ;-). Oh! My Nappy Hair was referred to me by a relative and I cannot thank her enough. After creating a concoction of double strand twist and rod setting, I can't say enough about how much I loved my hair!! Everywhere I went I received compliment after compliment or somebody would ask ""Where did you get your hair done?"" and I'd refer them to Oh! My Nappy hair. I've developed a wonderful relationship with Erica and Zee and consider them family. It's truly a comfortable atmosphere and great topics of discussion for your enjoyment & entertainment. Oh yea, and the leave- in conditioner and hair cream is the Sh**! Can't live without it. Pros: They really care about natural hair Cons: The damn parking!!! more

They Know Natural Hair! 8/19/2009

After reading all of the reviews I had to write. Often times people only write when they are upset, and not to give praise for a business. While I don't get to come to the salon frequently, I love everything about it. The service is great, the styles are fabulous and they helped my hair grow. If you really care about your natural hair check out this salon. Pros: They really know natural hair. Cons: Parking more

Worst place I've ever been! 7/30/2009

I can only say that this was the worst salon I have ever been to in my fifty years on earth! I was sitting in the chair and the stylist was on her cell phone not paying any attention to my hair, then she had baby daddy drama cause he wasn't paying child support and she was yelling and swearing. Then she walked away from my hair in the middle of a relaxer and when she came back she rinsed me out. But she said she had to go and left. After an hour she came back, and she washed my hair but the police came cause her baby daddy told the police she had busted out his windshield. She claimed she was doing my hair the whole time. When I went to speak to the police, she said I better tell them she was here the whole time or else she wasn't finishing my hair. She kept saying ""the popo ain't got nothin' on me"" it was crazy. Pros: running water Cons: too much baby mama drama, rudeness more

Don't spend all of your grocery money in this place 6/6/2009

I paid over $100 for a hairstyle that I could have done at home. Don't let the same thing happen to you. Ask for the prices up front and if they recommend something extra then ask them to tell you the price of that too! Pros: They do a great job of cutting natural hair. Cons: Not worth the price. more
