Master cosmetologist, Loctician & Color specialist

Welcome! I am a licensed cosmetologist of 23 years with varied backgrounds specializing in natural hair, coloring hair, hair cutting, traditional locks and Interlocking methods, relaxers & permanent waves. 

I began my hair styling career as a high school student in NH and finished at a black hair school in Fresno CA in 1993 with certificates in several professional product lines and continued education

Because of my diverse backgrounds I have a large multi cultural client base for hair cutting, coloring, locking, make-up artistry and most recently photography.

In 2007 I began to focus on natural hair care and locking hair.  I have trained and studied various methods of locking from free form to interlocking, custom lock additions,  extensions, hair pieces and a natural hair care product line.  

My primary goal is to beautify, educate, create and capture the beauty of each of my client's personal vision of beauty no matter what type of hair or need. 

I am looking forward to working with you on your hair adventures to bring you the most beautiful you.

Aisha is truly amazing! Today was my daughter first visit and the care an attention she gave her is unheard of now in salons. Her dreads we're split, thinning, breaking off, accumulation of hair products, and not to mention a section where her hair needed extensions. Aisha would show my daughter the (dos and donts) as she went along. And also teaching me how to take care of her hair in between appointments. Now I'm not sure if you ladies don't know how important that little bit of information is...(I call that saving $$) My daughter is happy, I'm thrilled and feel blessed because I know her self-esteem is going to come up, and self worth. Only if I could show you the before & after, you would understand this review I'm giving... As girls you all know how important it is too look good and have it LAST! Thank you Aisha! And you will be seeing us every 3 weeks ;)

I can truly say Aisha has made my sisterlock journey a memorable one. She found me when I was close to giving up and she restored my faith by making the coming months the best ever. She pours her spirit into her work and your hair will LOVE you for allowing Aisha to do her magic. I am now 2 years and 3 months into my sisterlock journey and Aisha has helped me understand MY journey based on MY hair texture. This is so important to the locking process and Aisha is the best....HANDS DOWN!

Thank you. Aisha we have come a long ways from very short hair to touching my shoulders. Your magic hands continue to work wonders and your works of encouragement never let me down. See you in two weeks.

Simply put, I trust Aisha to make me look beautiful! I especially love her skill with color plus she knows how to handle short hair.

I by chance got Aisha when I went to a walk-in salon about 3-4 months ago. I have short natural wavy/curly hair and Aisha did a great job with my hair cut. She shaped it into the perfect style. I love the time she spends talking to her clients to ensure that she understands their wants and moves into action to make it happen. I am about to have my 3rd appt. with Aisha and I know I'll leave a happy customer. Highly recommend you give her a try!

Aisha is an awesome Loctician. This is my 4th go around with locs. SMH. I just had a great set of locs prior to meeting Aisha and one day I just said enough. I wasn't patient I suppose, and had my locs taken out, a tedious process, but, worth it to keep my hair. Anyway it didn't take me long to realize, uh, no, I really don't want loose natural hair. So, fast forward, my cousin told me about Aisha and the rest is history.. I luv my sisterlocs.. Aisha and I really bonded during this installation process. She is friendly, kind and very knowledgeable and I highly recommend that you give her a call if you are considering locs or color.. She's excellent!

I went to Aisha with sisterloc extensions I wasn't too fond of and Aisha took the time to explain and demonstrate what sisterloc extensions should look like. I was sold. I love my hair. Thanks Aisha for getting me right.

Wow, where do I begin! I met Aisha in the summer of 2015. I happened to be getting a retightening by another stylist and left the chair upset with the services provided. I began to express my dissatisfaction and Aisha invited me to her chair and literally undid the numerous errors that were done to my locs. I literally looked at her and said, "where have you been." Lol! I've been a fan, friend, little brother and client every since. She is one of the wisest, fairest, funniest, and most proficient stylist you'll ever meet. I always feel like I have her undivided attention once I sit in her chair. I also work with the public and constantly get compliments on my locs based on her work. I have and will continue to refer others to this hair genius. See you at the Loft!

''Aisha always does an awesome job! Love her cut and color. She makes my hair color look very natural. Aisha is a extremely nice and friendly person. She always makes me feel welcome and comfortable. My two daughters also get their hair cut by her. They always leave with a big smile on their faces. I would highly recommend her. She's Awesome!!!" Joy F.

I've had my locs now for 9 years and have been in search of a loctician who truly understands their gift. After trying several locticians, I was blessed to become a client of Aisha Nneka's Loc and Color Loft in 2016. Aisha has colored, treated, styled and maintained my locs during this time. Under her care I've experienced a professional who never ceases to show her mastery over the art and expertise of nurturing and caring for her clients, with attention to their natural haircare needs. She has taught me not only about my locs, but also has given me the greatest gift of genuine care. Oh did I mentioned that she makes her own hair care products? A MUST HAVE!!!! ~Yvette W. Raleigh, NC

Impressive work by this awesome young lady! She put a lot of time & energy in making my hair look and feel amazing! I'm sure it's an inch and a 1/2 longer, thinner and much lighter! I'm definitely feeling myself with my new, clean, classy look! I can't stop swinging my hair! . Body honey!!! The compliments say it all. Fantastic job!!! Thanks Aisha! - Baby, Raleigh, NC
