If you don't want to always do your own hair and don't mind paying someone else, here's the list for you. A girl needs options in the Derby city.

Feel free to add in the following format: Stylist name, Salon name, Contact info, Have you had your own hair done by this stylist?, Strengths & Weaknesses

Chenica Racine @ Hair Strobel -
· Have you had your own hair done by this stylist? Yes, she's my favorite Website (http://www.hairstrobel.com/main/?q=node/13), book an appointment (http://appointment.bizlinkms.com/?page=appt)
· Strengths- She is natural herself, works with natural hair regularly and has alot of experience with it, does a variety of creative styles, prompt and QUICK
· Weaknesses - I would like her to expand her product line and use more homemade products (my own personal preference)
I have a whole list, but I'll be back with more later. Work calls . . .

Didn't want to hijack your thread, but wanted to share that I have had my locs retwisted by Shaha at MACC.
She was great. The shop is clean and bright.

Her locs are very healthy.

Strengths: proactive in using natural products, prices very reasonable, knows locing is a lifestyle not a hairstyle so advocates natural food products, etc., nice size take home products she makes

Weakness: I like my locs tighten a tad bit

I will go again

No hijacking at all. I've been waiting for other people to chime in.

I think Shaha and Shakoorah are the same person. I'm glad you had a great experience.

Chenica does my daughter's hair. She's a great cutter and always gives my daughter an extra sweet style just because. She is always willing to show me how to do a particular style and where to get products.

My daughter adores Chenica because her hands are gentle. I think that's just who Chenica is - a gentle soul.

I like Hair Stroebel too. It's unpretentious without being so edgy.
