Other than my Mama doing cornrows in my hair when I was a baby, the staff of Dreadlocks By Randi made me feel comfortable and adverted a "dread emergency" by giving me the following instructions, "wash your hair with Dawn dish liquid and then we can repair what they did" My hair looks decent and those jokers at L***s&C***s need to hang if up and leave the dreadlocks to trained professionals!
I went to dreadlocks by Randi yesterday to get lock cultivation, and it was an amazing experience; I could not be happier with my new dreads. I was there for about 4 hours, and I enjoyed myself the entire time. I mean, it was really fun to hang out there with all of the regulars who came in while I was there. Randi and her assistant Nikki are wonderful, funny, warm and strong women, and so I am really confused by the negative reviews. Anyone who thinks Randi is "rude" is either freaked out by strong, confident women or else has some other serious issues, because it is simply not true. Her salon is also a really comfortable atmosphere for people of all racial / ethnic backgrounds, and she provides extensive directions for how to take care of your locks (along with free hair bands and other goodies). Her approach is also 100% natural, and she genuinely cares about her client's happiness with her work. Both she and Nikki are experts at creating / maintaining healthy locks with any type of hair, and so if you want dreads THIS IS THE SPOT TO GO! I look forward to going back on a regular basis for maintenance. Without a doubt, I have never been happier with my hair in my entire life. While I was there, I kept squealing with joy for both Nikki and Randi transformed my head of frizzy hair into a head of beautiful locks.
Randi and her staff are awesome. I had an excellent experience from the first time I spoke with Randi on the phone to ask about an appt. and also when I met her at her salon. Randi is so nice.
Ive wanted dread locks from the minute I saw them on a person. Every time I asked some one with dreads how they got them I got the same story " stop washing and brushing your hair" I couldn't do that and I didn't believe the person who told me that.
One day I got on line and I typed in dread locks NYC. Randi's site was the first one to come up. I clicked on her home page and then browsed thru her gallery. The pictures of her clients were awesome. I was so excited . I printed out the home page.
The next day I called Randi to ask her about getting an appt. She was She was very clear about the process. She answered all my questions and was very patient. Randi made it clear that dreadlocks are permanent and that my hair would be fully locked when I left her salon.. My mind was made up and a couple weeks later I made my appt.
Meeting Randi face to face was like meeting a celebrity. She's so cool. She has the most beautiful long incrediblyneat dreadlocks my eyes have ever seen.
Right then I knew I wanted her for my locktitian. And Randi sealed the deal for me when she told me that I had to follow her after care instructions exactly or she wouldnt help me maintain and cultivate the very most beautiful dread locks that I could ever wish for because that is what is most important to her.
Also Randi's salon is immaculate!! Thank you Randi. I love my dreads. They are one of my life dreams come true. And I plan on being a client forever. I can't wait to come back and get extensions.
First thing for anybody interested in Dreadlocks by Randi -- the address is 151 Ridge Street (between E Houston and Stanton) and NOT Rivington St!
Now the logistics are out of the way, I must say I loved my experience at Dreadlocks by Randi. Professional but funky, clear communication and instructions on how to care for my new and developing dreads, and a boost to my confidence as I work in an office though have been trying to get a clearer definition to my hear. Randi and her crew were wonderful--the free assessment before I had the twisting, the time while there and instructions before I left, and the patience and humor each time I nervously called with care questions since my first visit.
Yes, I am headed back for ongoing care and continued washing and twisting. Thanks for your humor and sensitivity, Randi. Keep up the great work welcoming the diversity of everyone who wants to explore the wonderful world of dreads.
I have wanted dreadlocks for a while.i was going to do it on my own,but then i decided that i wanted it done by a professional,so I stated looking for one.
in my research i ran across dreadlocks by Randi.I went into the site saw that a famous dominican singer tono rosario has done his hair at dreadlocks by Randi.on that moment I made of my mind to do my dreads there.
I kept navigating the site and look at her work I chose to do dreadlocks extensions.I went to there spoke to Randi and ask her to make an appointment to do them as soon as possible and made my appointment for the following week.
while Randi was doing my hair she told me that tono might pass by to make an appointment.At first i thought she was just telling me this because I because i told her that he was the reason why I chose her place.in the middle of Randi doing my hair tono rosario walked in which made my experience more excited.Not only I had to meet an dominican celebrity and take pictures but also I was very satisfied with my lock and how they looked.
I been receiving a lot of complements of how nice and nite my dreadlocks look and I loving it.I really had a nice experience at dreadlocks by Randi and I highly recommend Randi if you looking to do dreadlocks.
Thank you Randi
Snuggled in the concrete jungles of NYC; the hair industry has a hidden jewel; a talent that everyone should know about. Her name is Randi and I HIGHLY recommend her.
As I sat in her chair last evening, I was amazed at her unique talent and technique of repairing my locs. This lady is on point!! With many years of experience in the business, she has a talent NO ONE can even come close to and she knows EXACTLY what she's doing.
Let's keep it real... If your hair is looking busted & disgusted; no matter what the texture or type... please give Randi a call. You will not be disappointed. She has a GOD-given gift like no other.
... but I will tell you. Don't call or come with your drama. This isn't the place for it. When she ask you questions about your hair or tells you what you should do prior and after she works her wonders on it... do EXACTLY what she tells you. As I heard her say last evening to a potential client: "... there's a method to my madness" ... but as I see it, her methods aren't mad; they're EXCELLENT!!!
She was absolutely amazing and straight to the point when it came to prices and the relationship that we would have when it comes to my hair. She takes care of you, makes you laugh and does one HELL OF A JOB! I was just with her yesterday and she stood up until the next day doing my hair and making sure I didn't look a hot mess. You can tell she loves what she does and honestly has your best interest when it comes to your dreads.
Randi has the patience of a saint! I came in with my hair a mess, brought the wrong hair dye that didn't take even though she suggested what I needed and then I had to run to the drug store to get the correct dye. She patiently waited for me and dyed my hair again. After the dye job, she twisted my locs and showed me how I was twisting them wrong.
She's amazing! I had a good time in her shop. Randi is fast, efficient and her shop has a warm, comfortable feel to it. I was very honored to meet Mr. Pee Wee, the dog. He is the cutest thing. He doesn't hang out in the store but I got to meet him at the end of my session.
Get your locs done here. Randi will hook you up! The only minor thing is that she uses mineral oil but I never discussed this with her. I told her that I make my own hair oil and she never said that I was doing the wrong thing so just ask about it and work it out between you and her. I'm sure there will be no hassle.
I walked out of her shop looking like Queen Diva and I feel like a diva! Thank you, Randi. I'll be back for that root wrap soon!
WHAT! I am from Orlando FL, however now live in NJ. I was referred by my previous stylist to Randi. I must say, a taxi cab, then the train another taxi then hoofing it on foot was well worth it. My hair looks amazing, and I had the best time. VERY clean warm inviting environment. I don't know her sidekicks name, but she twisted my hair up in no time. One of the most enjoyable hair experiences I have ever had. Totally recommend.
Oh, my face looks great thanks to the gentlemen next door with the bad kids.
Amazing Experience!!!! I have wanted dreadlocks for awhile but I just hadn't found the right person to do it. Then while doing research online I found dreadlocks by Randi. The whole experience was simply AMAZING! From our initial conversation on the phone, to the consiltation, to actually getting dreadlock extensions, Randi was professional, skillfull, and just an all around beautiful soul. I am more than just impressed with her skills, I am also very happy with the end result. While I was getting my hair done, I had the great pleasure of meeting Pee Wee the resident mascot, which only added more warmth to the great experience. Thank you Randi for the transformation. If you need anything done in regards to dreads, Randi is the only shop that caters to everyone. I highly recommend stopping by, you will be as satisfied as I am.
