I would give negative stars if I could!! I went on the 15th for the Japanese straightening. They told me to wait 2 days before washing it. I waited 4. I had a hard time brushing it and I thought that was strange. I got the same treatment at the same place 3 years ago and I loved it! This time I was extremely disappointed! The first time it took between 4-5 hours. This time it took 2. I felt like it was rushed, but I assumed they knew what they were doing. I let my hair dry naturally and I was appalled at the outcome! My bangs were so fried they were sticking straight out. The back is still wavy and the sides are totally fried!! I called the next day and they told me to come back and they would fix it. That was this past Friday. They redid the Japanese treatment and also gave me a Keratin treatment. Again they told me wait 2 days. I waited 3. I'm using a Keratin shampoo and conditioner. My hair is still wavy and totally fried. They cut the ends to get rid of some of the dryness, but it's still a mess. I am going to have to get my hair completely cut off!! This was a huge waste of $200! There nothing I can do with my bangs except let them grow out. I am livid! They won't give me a refund. I filed a complaint with the Board of Cosmetology today. I will never go there or recommend this place again!
Horrible Place. Don't believe the good reviews – I agreed the review below. I went to this place becase of the good reviews here. All the good reviews here were written by their own staff. I went to this place on a Friday night while all other hair salons on Broad Avene were bsy, there were only one 50+ year old grandma at Sema hair salon gettig hair cut.
1. They definitely have sanitory isses. Their towels smell. They don't have hair stylist assistant to help dry your hair. The receptionist does this. However, she doesn't wash her hands before touching yor hair!!! I sawher sneeze, swipe the floor etc then she came to me and dried my hari. I asked her to wash her hands first very politely. She got pissed off leaving me there half an hour unattended.
2. The owner cut my hair. I showed him the picture and told him only cut it 3 inches short. It wasn't a hard hair style just very basic look. He said I understood. However he cut my hair at least 8 inches!!!!! I had pretty long hair now my hair is short hair. When I confronted him he gave me an attitude saying "it's already cut. what are you gonna do??? I don't fxxking understand what you want. I did exactly like your picture" literally he said F word. I said it is no where close to the picture.
I had no choice but call my husband who is tall and muscular and also a police officer. The moment my hubby walked in, he changed his attitude 180 degrees. He apologized again and again. my husband asked him very politely if you think my wife's hair looks like what's in the picture? he said I am not capable of cutting hair. And my husband asked him if your customer tells you to cut 3 inches loud and clear why would you cut 8 inches. It is not a small difference. He said I thoght she looks better with short hair. I can NOT believe the way he treated his customers. So he won't cut my hair the way I want. He cuts it the way he wants. what the hell! Then my husband asked him why you threatened my wife when she confronted you? He said I'm really sorry for being rude to her. blah blah blah like a coward.
I had an event on Friday night and the japanese hair stylist I usually go for a hair cut went on vacaton. I saw all the good reviews therefore i came here. He totally ruined my day. I should have walked away when I saw only one 50+ years old grandma. If you don't want to have messed up hair like me, stay away this place. Don't believe the good reviews. It's easy to write made up reviews. But only real reviews could be this detail.
STAY AWAY THIS PLACE!!!!
Sema Hair Sucks!!! – Horrible!!! Never ever go there... i see this all +ve reviews i think the salon people might have written this... i went there and spent 180$ THEY DID NOTHING... just took my 4 hrs... after 1 week i see its not straight at all... went there twice but no +ve result...

I LOVE THIS PLACE ! – After years of bad experience at other places i finally came across Sema's and i am totally satisfied with their service ... I have been coming here for the past 3 years and there has never been a time i regretted !! .. i absolutely love the way the do my haircuts and styling .. !!
Sema Hair – This is my second time to Sema for a japanese straightening and its better than ever. The staff was great and quick. They expressed their goal to have me leave with healthy looking hair and they accomplished that. They gave me a free keratin treatment that help my hair look silky and shiny and they did it free of charge! I will definitely be back for my touch up in 6 months :)
japanese straightening – Sema hair def lived up to my expectations. I have had my hair done in other salons but this place was great. Had the Japanese straightening and my hair was very straight! I was absolutely satisfied, will be returning :)
Def worth trying. Great service.
