Love Matel!!! She has truly mastered her art at African hair braiding as well as other techniques. My experience was very emotional . My hair was very short. I came into her salon with the idea of starting my loc journey. She thought my hair was too short I started to cry. She said OK we'll try!!!Now, over a year latermy hair is thriving thick and healthy . She is a true professional 💗

I have been Matel client for the last 5 years. Every time I go over there I have the more pleasurable experience. She is very profesional and kind. She have excellent prices too and she is available for me sometimes even without appointment. When she does my hair I receive a lot of complements. She does an excellent job. Matel has been always so nice to the point to do my hair even at 6 am or earlier!!! Thanks Matel you are the best!!!

– Virginia Iacobelli

Matel has been doing my hair since I was 15! Matel is great, I am a loyal customer and she has been doing my hair since I was 17. She's been doing my hair for over 10 years! I like to change my hair frequently and Matel always makes my hair look beyond perfect. I am constantly stopped on the street and asked about my hair and who does it. The work speaks for itself and there are images on my Instagram: kbing If you want to see the many styles I've had over the years. I would recommend her to any and everyone!
