What Our Clients Say About Us

Best braids in San Diego.

We have tried many different braiders in San Diego for my daughter who has mixed African American hair. I won’t mention all the places where we had bad experiences, but let’s just say we were THRILLED to find Sophie. She can do a whole head of single braids on her own, she’s very fast, in a single sitting (albeit a LONG sitting). She can also do high quality corn rows. She does weaves too, but we haven’t had that done with her. The most important part is:


Basically, you’ll only have to take the braids out when the roots have grown out to the point where you’re afraid of them turning into dreadlocks. Singles will last at least 2 months, corn rows at least a month.

My daughter always looks cute when she gets her hair done by Sophie, we highly recommend her! It’s also a “real” salon rather than in someone’s house.

Sophie did my full sew in and it turned out great. She’s very nice and I like her. Quality work and she respected my time. So glad I came to her. I’ll be a client of Sophie’s from now on.


Sophie’s been Doing my Braids for Years. No issue with my Edges just High end Beauty at a Great Price.


My wife will only trust her braiding and extensions to Sophie – an hour drive from our condo in San Marcos but worth it. I think most African Americans acknowledge that women from Senegal are the BEST hair braiders on the planet. Well Sophie is from Senegal and her work is the best in SoCal! Her salon is clean and bright; her warm friendly attitude keeps my wife cheerful during the long process :). And the quality and durability is second to none!

I have been going to Sophie for over 15 years, and continue to go to her despite the fact that I now live in Sacramento. There is no one who does a better job braiding or weaving.

She does the best hair braiding and weaves! Super-fast and she is so friggin nice!!! Good pricing!


I have been coming to Sophie for over a year. I see her religiously every month.  She leaves my hair looking great and I can always count on her when I need her. I’ve been to other salons Sophie is the best hands down!

My 7 yr old never sits and has a hard time when she is getting her hair braided. We found Sophie and the min I walked in I felt so at ease and comfortable. She was so soft spoken and caring and my little one sat the entire time with no complaints just talked to Sophie like she has known her for years:) I have had a hard time finding an affordable nice place to take Jocelyn too. I will definitely be going back when she needs her hair braided. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just left and I’m love my hair. I’ve been going to Sophie a little over a year. From micro’s, cornrows and individuals. She is super-fast, affordable, professional and gives me her undivided attention. See her in 2 months for a weave. 🙂
