  • *****

    I have been looking for another salon to braid my hair for awhile. I decided in 2022, it was time for a change. Usually I am very skeptical with other salons because I had been going to my last salon for more than 10 years. I was very pleased with how my hair turned out and I will be going back for my hair care needs. I would definitely recommend going to this salon. They were fast, neat and friendly.

    I have NEVER written a review on an establishment before. I guess after 5s of Excellent service and amazing beautiful hair. You have to give honor where honor is due. Sophie and the ladies(Adam, Kinney) and all the others are very professional and PATIENT. I say patient because I've been places where although you're paying YOUR MONEY they're short and very dismissive to what it is your asking for verses what it is THEY WANT TO DO. Not here. I highly recommend anyone who wants quality hair and a comfortable atmosphere visit V.I.P. African hair braiding and see for yourself!!!

    I've been to this salon twice. Both times I called and asked for a same day appointment, and I was accommodated. The ladies in the shop are all nice and do good work. My recent visit I got medium long box braids for $185. Two people started on my hair at 1PM and I was finished at 516PM. This time around was extremely painful. The braids are so tight they I ran cold water on my hair the next day. It was so painful that I even considered removing the braids. Today makes 6 days since I got my hair done, and my braids are still super tight. My scalp is covered with scabs. I have to constantly oil my hair for instant relief. I give this place 4 stars because they do good service, and you get what you pay for. If your tender headed, this may not be the place for you. I don't think I will be back.

    First time here... I have been to other African shops previous and I would say this is one of the better shops. Yes, they definitely still braid tight as *^%# but my braids look very nice. They were professional and very timely. I stopped in the day before to get a price and make an appointment. Came back a little earlier than my appointment time and was seated right away. I had two braiders most of the time and they were somewhat considerate of my tender scalp. They worked 4 hours non-stop. I would return.

  • *****

    Good braiding and hair treatment services , they are neat and professional service and staff

  • *****

    Was a call ahead and was able to get seating upon arrival (called 30 minutes ahead). They we're all super friendly. I would say to pay in cash though just because it's a faster method of exchange. The actual shop is decent I would say they could be a little more sensitive to everyone's pain tolerance because tight isn't always better for the scalp. But overall kind and wonderful people and hair came out great. See pics below.

  • *****

    Walked in for pricing..walked out with beautiful zillions!

  • *****

    Great prices, great people and great customer service. Been going here for about 1 year now and wouldn't go anywhere else.

  • *****

    Best ever. Very professional. I love them

  • *****

    Very professional, nice and excellent staff. Highly recommended. They made me feel comfortable and I loved my ending results of Senegalese twists. -Sharisse

  • *****

    great job! i was a walk-in and they accommodated me. they were so fast and my braids were awesome! i'll be back!

  • *****

    My stylists did a great job. I really liked my hair and how I was treated. Kids are allowed in the shop but my hair was done in a timely fashion. The ladies work hard and deserve to be treated fairly so I tipped my stylists for a job well done. My appointment was at 10 am.......she started on my hair 20 mins later finishing with another client but once she started she did'nt stop untill the job was done. I will be getting my hair done again at this shop. My motto is treat others the way you want to be treated.

  • *****

    I give five stars for VIP African breading because They breaders are fast and very professionnel. The place is very clean.

    Sophie has braided my hair for several years whenever I needed my hair done she was available. Before she had her own shop she open up her home to my friends and I we all appreciate her for that. She's fast and efficient. Go and check her out I highly recommend her.
