    I've gotten my hair braided many times and said I was going to give my hair a rest because I was tired of what I was dealing with at different salons. After wearing my hair natural and twist for months I decided on braids so I started searching for a braider. I wanted someone who's going to listen and that's the bottom line, after all, I'm the paying customer. I've had them too tight which I don't like, too many, too heavy and bulky that wasn't attractive. Well well well, I finally found a place where I will stick with. Betty did singles and she listened to what I told her what I wanted. She's very quick, very sweet, very professional, confident but humble and last but least and most of all she listened. Betty delivered 100%. My husband thought I would be there all day. Betty also believes in customer service which I love. Betty put the customer first. She's not on her cell, she's all about getting the customer in and out. Betty went to cosmetology school so she knows customer service is key. Betty is all about business and making her customers happy. I'm a new customer and she'll definitely see me again.

    Went in for my hubby's hair to get braided. We arrived early, and the place was a bit messy.. but the two ladies said hello.
    We waited for about 10 mins and was called over for a test run. Braid came out looking good!!

    I had been looking for a good spot in Oakland/San Leandro. This is now my go to. I had my hair braided for burning man and it was perfect. She was quick and precise. My hair lasted through a week of the desert and long after! I'll be back.

    I went to get 2 feed in braids. They accommodated my schedule and took me in at a later time. Super friendly and welcoming. She worked very fast and did an amazing job!!! Made sure everything was perfect and how i wanted. Thank you again!

    Omg! I am new in town working and looked around for someone to braid my hair while I'm here working. I looked on Yelp and this salon had very good reviews so I decided to try them. Well I'm so happy that I did. Betty did my hair today and she braided it exactly like I asked her too. Not to small and not too large. She is awesome and the prices are very reasonable. Thank you Betty for being so professional and for doing such a great job. I would definitely recommend this business and I will be coming back for another appointment .

    The braider here is wonderful. I made an appointment at the last minute for feed-in cornrows...I called at 11am and got an appointment for 2pm. I arrived a bit early, but was out within 30 mins. The younger lady braided my hair. I'm sorry that I didn't get her name. But she braids fast. I'll be making an appointment for singles in a couple of months. Will DEFINITELY be returning. Very professional as well and a very reasonably priced. Thank you Flo Professional Braiding! You made my day!!!!

    Great spot for braids! They sell hair also so you can get everything there. They have a wide selection of different hair colors to choose from. I like that they work fast and get you out quickly. My braids are the same size and the cornrows in the front have a nice design. I'm tender headed but this wasn't that painful. The bonus was a parking lot and the friendly feel of the shop. I will definitely go back.

    By far the best African Braiding place in the Bay Area. Flo is always so professional and is always able to accommodate me when needed. I always get my hair done by Betty who is such a sweet woman and always makes my hair come out great. She's fast but she always does a great job! I love getting my hair done at this salon and have recommended it to my family and friends.

    Went in for some quick cornrows. Flo is very professional and quick. I'll definitely be back for crochet braids.

  • *****

    She does AMAZING braiding at reasonable prices. I've usually gotten feeder braids, but her individual box braids are pretty as well. The only braided I go to in the Bay Area that doesn't charge me a gri

    simply AMAZING. Can i just begin with saying how PROFESSIONAL AND EFFICIENT Ms. Flo is????!!!

    I had an absolute EMERGENCY, and needed my hair braided at the 13th hour!!!!!! Not only did i find Ms. Flo via YELP, i called and she was able to take me in almost immediately! I showed her a picture of the style i wanted and my hair came out PERFECTLY! Miss Flo and her aunt are very professional and extremely courteous.

    This review is ONE WEEK over due, and my Goddess braids still look and feel as tight as they did when i got them done. YOU HAVE A NEW CUSTOMER IN ME, Ms Flo!!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!!

    Quick and professional. Didn't have to wait long. Braids did become fuzzy after a couple of weeks though. Still, I will definitely return. They also sell the hair in shop for $3/pack

    I am very picky and meticulous about my hair. When my regular braider is in Africa, I go to Flo. She's fast, neat and has reasonable prices. Flo is also up on the latest braid styles. I get tons of compliments on my hair.

    Another point is Flo gets you in and out. You don't have to sit for hours and my braids last, I don't like the frizzy braids (My OCD kicks in)

    Thanks FLO

    My experience here was everything! My hair came out so bomb and the service I received was great.

    First, my appointment was at 3,and they started my hair at 3. This may not seem like a big deal, but practically all of my hair shop experiences have consisted of me waiting 30 mins to an hour afTer my scheduled appointment time before someone touches my hair. So they pretty much made my day.

    Second, I showed them a picture of what I wanted and I got EXACTLY what I asked for.

    Third, they were super fast.

    Fourth, the ladies were super sweet.

    I'll definitely be back

    As always love my hair. Flo continues to give me exactly what I want everytime. They are always available and always very responsive, unlike other braiding salons that never get back to you.

  • *****

    Enjoyed the quality of the service and they were able to accept my appointment at the last minute. I think the person who started my hair was new and appeared hesitant but whomever took over was quick, confident and I enjoyed the way my crochet locs turned out. Overall both women were very nice and gentle with my hair.

    I have been going to Flo for the past year and a half and I'm always satisfied. She's quick and thorough. I haven't had a style that I wasn't complemented a dozen times on. I guarantee you won't be disappointed taking your business to her.

    Good job. Very pleased with how my hair came out. She's very quick and doesn't pull your hair out like other braiders.She has plenty of designs to choose from. She can do it all.

    Hey so I was referred to a Flo by someone I met I then begin to research and all the yelp reviews were +POSITIVE+ automatically we think it's someone in their family,close friend etc... well I can say it was definitely worth waking up early and driving to SanLeandro from Fairfield , we all now the irony of sitting through getting your hair braided and this day she did my singles and surprisingly she only took 3hrs ,very neat and knowledgeable about her hair styles .. I will only book with her shop . I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a braider in The Bay Area ...
    Thank you Flo & her sister is very helpful as well thanks ladies .

    She is neat and thorough I trust her to braid my hair and my daughter's hair. Every time she braids my hair I get a ton of compliments! I will be calling soon for new style!

  • *****

    I found this shop while visiting the shop next door. I contacted her via Facebook with a photo requesting a quote for that particular style. She responded within the hour and i was able to book an appointment for the following week. My hair came our beautiful, even better than the photo. I will definitely return and recommend Flo.

  • *****

    Flo is fast, neat, and professional. What more could you want from a braider? Thanks Flo. See you soon!

    Quality work and very time efficient.
    My hair was identical to the picture I showed Flo.

  • *****

    Great service! Flo and staff was friendly and fast. I have been searching for a great braider for over a year now and thank goodness I found Flo!! Shop was nice and clean, she opened right at 9am and was done with the style by 11. So if you are looking for someone who is about satisfying the customer and not just about the money, Flo is your go to.

  • *****

    I'm so happy with the service!! My daughter is so tender headed and she was able to get through it with no Ipod or phone which must of been a miracle lol!! Service was great, I would recommend this shop!!

    I was referred to Flo by one of my hubby's high school students after I admired her hair. Flo was personable, referred to the photo I took for style, and took half as much time as the last shop I went to (1-5:30pm). There is parking right next to the shop. I'm ready for my vacation!

  • *****

    Flo was amazing... she responded back to me for an appointment very quickly she was available for the day and time that I needed. What's also super cool is that she has hair available for purchase in the shop so you don't have to worry about stopping at the hair store before your appointment.

    I showed her the style that I wanted and she hit it out of the park. Plus she was superquick and my braids look super neat and uniform and perfect. I definitely will be back for more styles in the future.

    I've had to go to both San Diego and Santa Barbara for school after moving out of San Leandro. I have to say that it's extremely difficult to find people to braid hair, especially for thick and straight Filipino hair.

    I live nearby so it's extremely convenient for me, but what has been most convenient is Flo, (or the braider if that isn't her name), her accommodation, and her availability.

    I've been here three times and each time I called the day before and she was always available the next day. One occasion I was driving from Santa Barbara to a 10 a.m. appointment (I had a flight from Oakland at 1 p.m.); I showed up one hour late. She was waiting patiently still - I would have left 15 minutes after my client didn't call.

    Not only that, but she braids quickly and efficiently. While my hair is only long on the top of my head, she never takes longer than a half-an-hour.

    Pricing has been $20 for four braids. I believe that's fair; I've had to pay $35 before at a place one-hundred miles away from Santa Barbara.

    I recommend this place and I'll be seeing Flo soon.
