My little girl will not let anyone else braid her hair but Rhonda, that says it all. Amazing hair stylist and so accommodating. Will highly recommend Rhonda to anyone wanting a professional and classy hair do. - Sippy

Rhonda always delivers whatever I ask for because she's soo good at what she does! For me the added bonus is that she is mobile so suits the busy lifestyle as I literally do not have to leave my house. Rhonda is punctual, professional and polite. Her service cannot be faulted. Thank u Rhonda  - Danielle

Rhonda has been styling my hair for over 16 years, so I asked if she could help with my niece who doesn’t let anyone even brush her hair. My niece let Rhonda braid her hair beautifully and was so happy letting her! Amazing. - Carly
