I've never had braids before and never used any color in my hair, and I wanted both, so I did alot, I mean ALOT of research to find the best braiding salon in Raleigh (where I now live), and the most top reviewed place around was Customers Come First African braiding. So I called made my appointment, and now I will never go anywhere else but here and no one is allowed to braid my hair but Grace. The color combinations she picked out for my hair and style fit my face and personality perfectly. Her new book she just released has saved my relationship 10 fold, and I am so grateful for her in more than just a hairstylist - customer type of way. I told my friends and family about this place and now my sister will only come to her as well. Grace is fast and efficient. I've never had a problem with my hair and she answered every question I asked her without hesitation. I've never had a braid come out and my hair grew over 2 inches with just one set. I Highly recommend anyone and everyone looking for an amazing hair braider to GO SEE GRACE! Fast reliable service, guaranteed! Amazing doesn't even describe the type of work she does. Just go and see for yourself :-)
Visiting the Customers Come First African Braids, Inc. salon on August 3, 2013 was a real treat for me. I drove to the salon from SJAFB, NC to this Raleigh-based shop and I was not disappointed.
Grace and her staff members (which included Julia, Jerri, and Ruth) were so pleasant and professional. The salon was clean. The atmosphere was peaceful and jovial and they did a phenomenal job. The braid styles that Grace and her staff created were absolutely breath-taking and beautiful. It is clear that these professional hair stylists take pride in their work.
I will definitely recommend Customers Come First African Braids, Inc. to “braid lovers” no matter where they live in Eastern North Carolina. The salon experience is definitely worth the drive!
May God continue to bless Grace, her staff and Customers Come First African Braids, Inc.
First time here today but I'm thoroughly impressed. Grace (owner) is very professional, kind and knows her stuff! Extremely gentle (I'm tender headed) but quick and efficient. Other staff were courteous, shop was UPSCALE and very clean. I'll definitely be returning! God bless you ladies.
By far THE BEST experience I've had at any salon ever. This is no exaggeration. Grace made me feel very comfortable the entire time, I never felt out of place, and she made sure that I was okay for my appointment. She's also probably the fastest braider I've ever seen. I got senegalese twists and she was done in about 2 and a half hours. GO SEE HER! :)
After a bad customer service experience at my usual braiding salon, I set out to find a new one. During my quest, I came across Customers Come First African Braids and decided to visit. Prior to making an appointment, I visited the Cary salon and met with Mary regarding styles, hair types, etc. I decided to give CCFAB Salon a try and could not be happier with my choice. My appointment was at the Raleigh location and I must say that it is the most upscale braiding salon I know. The decor and ambiance are absolutely amazing! Grace was very friendly and, as the name states, I felt like I was a priority. In addition to receiving amazing Senegalese twists, Grace showed me different ways to style my twists. Now that I know THIS shop exists, I will not be patronizing the "other" shops. Prices may be the same from salon to salon, but good customer service is an important distinguishing characteristic. Appearance, professionalism, and good customer service have earned my business at Customers Come First African Braiding Salon.
Was serviced with Senegalese twist the day before Christmas and Grace did a wonderful job. This is the most UPSCALE African Braiding Shop in NC, and I highly recommend this salon! The staff was extremely professional, I was even offered a glass of Moscato wine (which was really rare for a braiding salon). I definitely would re-visit this salon for all of the future services. Grace is the Bomb! And guess what ya'll they play Jazz music on their all-star Google TV, light incense, and offer complimentary refreshments. My braids were not tight (usually when I go to a braiding shop, my brains feel like they are coming out). The atmosphere was very comfortable with Grace and Lady Mara a.k.a. Oprah and Gayle of the Natural Hair Care Industry(LOL). It was pleasing to my heart to see an African and a African-American working side by side to serve their own people in such a professional manner. I truly appreciate Customers Come First African Braids (CCFAB) for showing society that we all can work together.
First off, I never write reviews but I had such a great experience at CCFAB yesterday that I have too. I am new to the area & I was looking for a braid shop. I came across CCFAB online & saw all the great reviews & decided to call. They answered all of my questions & I scheduled an appointment for the followng day. I got the amazing Grace. She did Senegalese twists for me at the Cary location. It was a neat & comfortable environment. She provided great customer service by being friendly & making me feel welcome. She made sure she knew exactly what I wanted. We discussed the style, size of braid, length, etc. My hair is fairly long (midway my back) and thick. Ms. Grace did my hair in under 6 hours. (in other shops it usually takes 8 or more hours). Ms. Grace also asked if she could choose the color for my hair & I trusted her. I'm glad I did bc she mixed a beautiful color for me. I usually play it safe with standard black/dark brown. But she mixed a small amount of an auburn like color & it came out lovely. She made great conversation with me & was unbelievably funny. I walked out a very satisfied customer. It's a good feeling when you feel like you got the best service & product for your money. I will definitely be returning.
I want to say that deciding to get my hair braided by Ms. Grace Bey was a no brainer! I am very much satisfied with her product and her work ethic..she promotes in herself and her staff Excellence in what they do.
Definitely a Five-star experience – This salon has given me the best experience. The atmosphere is always professional and efficient. Not to mention the convenience of same-day appointments, the owner Ms Grace is personable and her employees carry the same spirit of excellence.
There is non like CCFAB*************** "THE BEST!" – Come on people, your should be a shame of yourself writing all this craziness. This is the prefect example of black on black crime. You have a African braiding shop with an African American Braider of which this is the first time I have ever heard of this. It sound to me that Ms. Grace is doing more than most of us in our own community. I don't understand why is it that we as people are so stupid and selfish that we can not read between the lines. You have one of our "sister" doing what she need to do to survival while making a difference. She have a business that create jobs for black employees, and that cater mostly black customers. From what I know of this woman, she is a one of the best people when you get to know her. From speaking with her, i know that her intention is good and she is trying to help by bring a positive change in her own ways.
I have been into many African Braiding shops and I mean "MANY"! CCFAB is the first of their kind that do so much and go the extra mile to do what they do for their customers.
When will ever have something good worth fighting for? When will we stop been the slave and become the master of our own communities?
Most African braiding shops that I have been to, they don't even come close to the lever of professionalism that CCFAB provide.
We have to build and encourage CCFAB to become at their best, not work over time to break them down. We move from one African braiding shops to another doing the same thing we do. Never been satisfied because most of us don't even know how to act right. The sad thing about all of this is that we never judge or complaint when we get service from the chinese, the Whites or other race, except our own.
if we keep bringing our own black people down, who can we turn to? Is this what Dr. King (MLK). fought for? Is this how we will go down in history as people? How will our children ever do better, or get the respect they desire if we can not represent them or teach them well? "Our action speaks louder than word..."!
I love Ccfab and they have my business for life. Ms. Grace and the others are great and I know I will always have the best of time when go there. I have been to CCFAB at least three times, each time that I have visited the salon i have been pleased and my hair was done with in a reasonable time. The conversations are always educational and life changing. They offer me free wine, refreshment and drinks. Great entertainment on their google TV, they offer coupons, free braids takeout, hair included and best of all the environment is very impressive. The environment is very impressive so that I forgot were I was, I thought I was home or at "White" salon.
Ms. Grace, you have customers for life and you keep doing what you're doing. Because you know "GOD" I know you will be more than alrigth. Just know that "No weapon form against you or/and your business shall ever prosper. I love you guys and I know there're many people like me out there that appreciate and respects what you guys do. Every time I with your, I feel like I am at home and I thank your for everything. Thank you for making a different and I apologize for those who don't know what they do.
