Donnella, is simply amazing! Not only was the ENTIRE salon experience great from start to finish, she is a master at her craft. My hair always looks amazing and is the healthiest it’s ever been. I have to say Donnells is so patient and kind and just the sweetest spirit I have met. Since moving here I wanted to find someone that not only knows hair, but natural hair and I found her! I can’t go elsewhere - Britteney F.

Donnella did my hair for my Labor Day weekend wedding. Hands down the best natural stylist! couldn’t be more happier with the outcome of my hair on the day of my wedding. Truly felt like a fairytale princess. She came out and did my hair on site and even made sure everything was perfect until we took pictures. She took her time to make sure my hair was beautiful for my wedding day. I would recommend Donnella to anyone!!

Donella does more than do your hair. She talks to you about your hair, addresses concerns you have and helps you feel excited about being naturally you when you leave. My hair always feels better once I leave Donella. Oh and Donella does not play about getting her job done. She takes her craft seriously and makes you do so as well

I was fortunate to be able to use Donnella as my hairstylist for my wedding day earlier this year. She is absolutely amazing! I came to my bridal trial with a few different ideas of how I wanted my hair to look for my big day and Donnella helped with me with selecting a style that would compliment my dress. Not only was she able to completely transform my look for the day, Donnella was timely and made sure that the finished product was exactly what I wanted!

First, Donnella's smile and energy, as soon as you walk in her loft immediately makes you feel comfortable, and at ease in knowing that your "me time" at the salon will be well worth it! I also love that she takes the time to explain to you, on how you can maintain your healthy natural hair at home. In addition to my great experience, I was in and out the allotted time for my services. Basically she is all about you and your hair until you are finished. I can not leave out, Donnella can do some hair! Whatever you want, she will make sure that is what you will have before you leave her chair. I have been missing out, but not anymore (SMILE)!

I am so happy that I found Donnella. I had been wanting a tapered cut for a long time and looking so someone who understands how to cut and style it as well. From the initial consult, til the time my hair was completely done I could tell that Donnella knew what she was doing and was going to have me all the way together. I LOVE my hair, EVERYONE loves my hair. I am so happy that I found Donnella. -Latia

I've been a client of Donnella Jefferson for awhile. After going natural and being referred by a friend, I've been loving Donnella's soothing hands ever since. #loveher

When I moved to Cleveland from Nashville in 2015, I was lucky to find her. She truly guided me in getting my hair to the best condition possible. As long as she keeps doing hair, I will faithfully remain her client. Natalie A.

I've trusted Donnella w/my natural hair for the past two years and I must say I've never regretted the day I decided to go natural. She made the whole experience just wonderful.. I enjoy my visits, they"re more like therapy sessions. I appreciate the time and care she puts into caring and styling my hair. She has even educated me on how to take care of my hair between visits. This is her calling her passion and it shows!

Donnella is a master at her craft, she is passionate, professional and very talented. Her energy is positive and she brings joy to her job. Not only is she good with natural hair she is great with any texture hair she comes across. I have been a client of Donnella's for over 5 years and have recommended her to numerous family and friends who have been equally pleased with her services. I am very excited to see her continue in her beauty journey. Cyndee J

I struggled to maintain healthy hair while visiting several different stylists, so I thought the solution was to go natural. I started going to Donnella approximately a year and a half ago and the results are AMAZING!! My hair has grown triple the length and most importantly its super healthy, she is a hair lifesaver
