Rachel’s customer service is on point. She truly cares about the health of the hair as well as style. From the moment she Installed my Sisterlocks, until now, well over one year later, I am always receiving compliments on my Sisterlocks. She never over books so you receive that personal care that you deserve. I absolutely love the job she does on my hair.

Rachel’s customer service is phenomenal. She has a wonderful attitude and is always pleasant. I have Sisterlocks and I love a fresh and clean grid when I get my retightenings and Rachel does just that. Her work is precise and efficient. Booo your appointment with Rachel, you won’t regret it!

I am so excited to share my testimony about my experience with hair stylist: Rachel Bates, aka Lock Guru. Rachel did an awesome job with my hair (I got a wash, cut and style). She spent a lot of time thoroughly cleansing my hair, making sure she was extremely gentle and attentive. I have to say that it was the best shampoo & deep conditioning treatment I’ve ever had! It felt so good afterwards. And then she taught me how to define my curls. This was important to me, because although I’ve been natural for a while, I don’t know much about how to make my curls pop and how to change up my style from day-to-day. A little background: I am in colon cancer remission, so I’ve gone through several surgeries, chemotherapy, spent time rebuilding my strength, going to doctors and physical therapy appointments, so lately I have neglected my hair. Rachel was incredible because she not only did do a fantastic job with my hair, but she also shared her “hair philosophy” and educated me along the way. I’ve gotten lots of compliments, I’ve got style, I’ve got pizzazz, I’ve got new hair confidence! Thanks to the Lock Guru: Rachel Bates! ~ Alicia D.
