Kinaya is an awesome stylist, excellent educator and an all around great person. I was referred to her by several co-workers who are also natural. My initial contact was by telephone for a consultation. Kinaya took her time, asked in depth questions about my lifestyle, my regimine and my expectations from the appointment. When I arrived her attention was focused on my the entire time. We talked again about my lifestyle and hair expectations to confirm that we were on the same page (she confirmed my wishes multiple times throughout the appointment which I enjoyed). She also educated me about my hair, other types and various products throughout my visit, I left the appointment enlightened but not overwhelmed. I will definitely visit Kinaya again.
