    Thank you for all the NICE
    Sorry for the misspelled word:(
    Eveyone Take Care and Be Blessed…

  • Love her work and what she does to help other ladies feel and look beautiful, Congrats to you

  • Akiyia is very talented! She did my daughter’s twist and braid styles. The commute to her home from Powder Springs is a little over 30 minutes but she is well worth it! My daugter is gone for the summer, but she will be back for more head turining, not to tight styles. Congrats Akiyia…very nice interview!

  • Amazing do’s A’Kiyia! Very professional work. Thank you for letting people know about our delicate edges. I see so many little girls with pulled out edges. I was wondering if you do Havanna twists and do you know where I can order Havanna hair? Do you carry it? My hair is natural and almost platinum. I bleached it because I had gray patches here and there. The color looks great but I’d love to find some blonde Havanna hair. Havanna twists are sooooo beautiful. Keep up the good work and have a blessed week. Lisa
