I have been wanting to have my hair loc'd for the last 2-3 years, and I did my fair share of research on the internet about different ways of approaching the matter, talked to various friends and family who have their hair loc'd, and tried a couple of different products after watching a few youtube videos smh.. I first Grew my hair out for 2-3 months and started my dread journey with the Nu Dread Sponge... Although this sponge did manage to get my hair to dread, it wasn't as neat, and clean as i needed them, or wanted them to be. I wanted my dreads to all be even, look clean, and also be manageable. Well suffice to say I ended up giving up on the Nu Dread sponge, and decided to seek guidance from someone who had years of knowledge when it comes to loc's. I started first by asking anyone i saw who's hair was loc'd, how they did them, or who helped them, and the name that I kept hearing was of a lady called Sarah. I ended up doing a Google search for "loctician in Cincinnati", and what do you know, her web page was the first page listed! I was thinking to myself... "This must be a sign?" After clicking on the Link to the web page the first thing that I noticed, was how professional the web page looked. This was a good sign, because I figured if she puts this much effort into her website and business, she must care about her customers as well. I then decided to give her a call, and the first thing I noticed was how easy she was to talk too on the phone. Immediately I felt relaxed, as if I had known her for years. By this time my hair had been growing for about 3-4 months so I was rather anxious to have something.. anything... done to my hair. Too my surprise she said that although she had a pretty busy schedule she would fit me in tomorrow at noon. When i walked through the doors I felt very comfortable. I was greeted by a warm smile and a great spirit. I then asked if she was the person who is known as the Loc Dr. and she greeted me with a smile and said yes. Since I am a male, and I have never had my hair done at a salon i wanted to know what she would be using in my hair, and general questions about upkeep. She was very thorough with her extensive knowledge when it comes to loc'ing, which also put me even more at ease. I then had my hair washed and shampooed, after washing i sat under the dryer, then the twisting began... Sitting down in the seat, I was anxious, and a little nervous, because I had an idea about how I wanted them to look, but wasn't sure if they would come out the way I envisioned. Well, lets just say after 1 hour of sitting in the chair, my hair was fully twisted, looked amazing, and my journey had started. I must say that there is a feeling I had looking at the new me! It felt good, and also refreshing! She then told me when i would need to come back, and also if I had any hair emergency situation, to not hesitate to give her a call. I then thanked her, and felt like a new man as I proceeded to walk out of the door. Oh yeah... The atmosphere was very chill, and relaxing with good music playing in the background, and intellectual conversation with fine women.. you can't beat it. So if anyone, especially men out there who want to start there Loc Journey, don't hesitate to give Sarah "The Loc Dr." a call. Trust me... She has a PHD in her craft. A Happy Client, Josh

When I first pulled up I was very confused because it seemed like the outside of the business looks abandoned and not taken care of. I saw another customer walk in ahead of me so i assumed they were open and walked in. After all I did call and have an appointment booked at 12p. After walking in I was shocked at what the inside of the establisment looked like. It was dirty, unkept and looked like the floors hadnt been swept for months. When I walked in there were multiple people sitting there and no one said hello for almost 3-5 mins. I took a seat after a customer had informed me that is what I was supposed to do. The lady eventually shouted from the back. "you here for eyebrows?!" I said "yes, I have an appt at 12p. She said that she would be there shortly. (It was 11:55) To my surprise the lady that walked in 2 mins before me was being seated to get her eyelashes done at 12p as well. I was confused as to why they would schedule me at the same time. The owner took her time frequently walking away to answer the phone or to have a conversation with other employees/friends. The shop was like a hangout. There were friends, children, and employees all just sitting around and talking. Not to mention the kids were throwing things around the shop and would not leave me alone by untying my shoes. Not even the parents (the parents were also employees of the shop) stepped in as I tried to get them to leave me alone. They just laughed it off. It was completely unprofessional. at that point I should have up and left however I was looking forward to this service because I have had it done in the past somewhere else and really liked the results. As I waited, i became increasing more upset because Sarah, the owner did not call me back to the chair until 1:15!!! Keep in mind I did not leave until 2:30p (2hrs and 45 mins I was there) After an hour and a half I was just glad the process could get underway. After I sat in the chair (which felt like it would break at any moment) I became more annoyed because she continued to get up, answer her phone, and even make travel arrangments to go to NYC the following day. After applying a few lashes the client that was complete before me walked in because part of her eyelashes fell off. So once again she asked me to get out of the chair and continue to wait until she fixed the prior clients job. I was speechless and that part of the experience wasnt even the worst part. The work itself was absolutely ridiculous. The lashed touched the top of my eyelids and were up to my eyebrows. I asked if they could be cut to look more natural and she insisted that they looked fine. At this point I was over this situation and just wanted to get out of the shop. I never could imagine that such a horrible service could be performed and that the owner was proud of that work. I think that groupon should do everything in their power to take this groupon off the website and should investigate the look, feel, and quality of work before they offer a companies service. With groupon being such a reputable name I would hope that this standard would be in place so loyal customers like myself do not question making continual purchases after having such a horrible experience like this one. I took plenty of pictures if anyone would like to see their work.

I went to Nature's Outer Beauty yesterday after reading the other good reviews. They are accommodating and the stylists are the best I have ever experienced. The prices are also very reasonable. I will go back.

Never Ever again will I darken their doors!!! I had a bad feeling and should have trusted my gut instinct. The lashes are NOT true extensions, nothing more than cheap products purchased from any supply house. The damage done to my lashes will take months to repair. The left eyelashes started falling off the same night and I used remover to get off the right eye. I demanded a refund from Amazon. Please don't waste you money at this place, which was nasty, kids playing, and unprofessional. I had to seek out another business to correct the damage done. If you want it done right and for them to look natural, visit the Inner Peace Holistic Center on Walnut St for a much better quality product.
