Shampoo Beauty & Barber Salon
800 East 21st Ave
Allegra – Stylist and Certified Loctition
Brian Da Barber – Barber
Brian is an awesome barber that is able to cut, sketch in any design into the head. He has been cutting hair for 7 years, and has even begun to dabble in natural hair. I got my eyebrows done by him, and they were amazing. He cut them with a straight edge blade. Not too many people are able to get each brow the same, but he did. I was a tad bit nervous because I didn’t tell him exactly how I wanted my brow, but showing his skills he was able to cut my brows perfect for the shape of my face.
His prices aren’t steep at all, and I think that that says a lot. He is making sure that he is able to help the black community stay looking fresh. His booth is located directly on the left side of the shop once u step in on the back wall, it’s not easy to miss.
Kid Cuts Basic – $10
Adult Cuts – $15
Shaves (Beard) – $10
CUTS BY BRIAN DA BARBER
Let me say that once I sat in her chair I was comfortable, and relaxed. She explained to me the locing process, and her energy was amazing. Sometimes when you are meeting a new stylist for the first time u feel agitated, and just plain nervous. “Is she going to mess up my hair?”
“Will I like it?” Not with Allegra, we laughed, joked and ate. It was an awesome experience. I was especially happy when I noticed she was natural herself, and she had that fierce look I love. I knew immediately that my hair was in good hands, naturals know the natural struggle. Let me give you some info about my locs. My locs were started on Oct 18, 2014, using the coil method. I have over 300 locs in my head, and during the process we both laughed at who was going to count them. If you want beautiful locs that will remain to shine throughout the weeks of retwisting, visit Alllegra. I have had my locs for two weeks now and they are still nice and glossy once I do the steps for maintenance in the am, like she instructed. The whole process was no longer than four hours, due to the fact I have micro locs. Depending on the size loc you want the time will vary.
Beeswax, and Gel?
Allegra has a special concoction that she uses exclusively for her clients that you can’t get anywhere else. She has been using this product that she formulated herself, and will be working towards selling it in the near future.
I was told that you should not have to have your locs retwisted every two weeks! A month in between visits is perfectly fine, and healthy. If your locs are washing out and you feel that your journey is a headache, you’re at the wrong stylist. All you should be doing is twisting the ends of your locs to make sure you’re training them.
IT IS HIGHLY SUGGESTED THAT YOU DO NOT WASH YOUR LOCS FOR A MONTH!Those are a few helpful tips to help you get started in your journey, and kick off your researching on locs. I suggest that you read up on locs before you get them. Remember that everyone’s head is different everyone’s journey will definatly be different. DO WHATS RIGHT FOR YOU!!! YOU KNOW YOUR HEAD.
