I can’t be the only one who has noticed the new set of natural hair salons that have popped up lately. Frankly, I’m here for it.
Before now, there has only been four major salons – O’Naturals, KLS Beauty Bar, Apples and Oranges and Tunmise Salon. Now there are more options and this is good for us, since we love some TLC for our hair. At the same time, we need to be cautious about those salons that hide under the cloak of natural hair. This is why lists like this are important to point out the verified and certified natural hair salons.
In no particular order, we have;
Yellow Sisi is a relatively new salon which just opened a few months ago. It is run by the very lovely Kelechi aka as YellowSisi. The salon is located in Lekki Phrase 1. Yellow Sisi and her daughter constantly give us hair goals in person and on social media. There’s no doubt that your hair will be treated in the same way they treat theirs.
2. Sisi Jacobs
Sisi Jacobs Natural Hair Salon is run by Tomi Ajayi Ismailia. They officially opened their doors to the public about a couple of months ago. So, if you happen to be in Kaduna or its environs, pop in and you might just get a freebie. Plus their ambiance looks lush!
3. Game of Fros
The uber-talented Esther Tom runs the Game of Fros Natural Hair Hub in Calabar. Esther is a self-taught stylist who, pretty much, has magic hands. No jokes! I want her to make my hair too!
4. Lumo Naturals
Lumo Naturals is the possibly the very first natural hair salon in Abuja so they are not exactly new. Regardless, they need to be known. They have a regular hair club and a workshop, Jungo
which incorporates fun activities like aerobics, DIY activities and painting. You should give it a try if you live in Abuja.
TasalaHQ is easily my favorite salon so far. They do a mean silk press (a non-chemical way of straightening your natural hair) that would give relaxed heads a run for their money. They are obviously particular about their craft and their skills speak for themselves. A quick scroll down their Instagram page shows what they do and how they do it best. Of course, I’m going to pay them a visit soonish. Christmas maybe? Thankfully, they are located in Ikoyi, Lagos.
