Kisha has been "raising" my hair for about 5 years now and I can't think of it being any other way. During one of my first visits, she graciously educated me on the damage I was causing and helped me through the cut... Months later, I had gorgeous new healthy length. To date, she understands my personal style and accommodates my unique needs without a blink. She is always smiling and so wonderful at what she does. I hope to see her reach her full potential in the near future..

Immediately, Kisha earned the distinction of being - not just a hair stylst- but a very professional Hair Doctor (H.D.). During each visit, her manner, knowledge and techniques create an atmosphere of trust and "WOW"! Prior to being referred to Kisha by Kierra C., my personal methods of hair care were just short of barbaric. Hence, I also appreciate Kisha's honesty, guidance and patience with me as I embrace her excellent principles concerning excellent hair care.

Kisha is amazing, and is by far the best hair stylist I have ever had! I'm constantly getting compliments on how beautiful and healthy my hair looks! I have never had a stylist take soo much time to listen to me, check on me & my hair throughout the week, or think of new styles, treatments, etc outside of my appointments that she believes will work well for me. Kisha is truly gifted at what she does; she cares about the whole person, not just your hair. I have been blessed to find the perfect stylist for me and I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed if you choose to try her services as well! She's a Godsend

Finding a good hair stylist was a scary experience. I went to three hair stylists that didn't know what they were doing but that changed when I found Kisha at Chic of Essence. Kisha is professional and truly cares about my hair. She listens to my concerns, gives me tips on how to take care of my hair and works to correct the mistakes previous stylists made. I was also impressed that I could e-mail Kisha a question related to my hair and she promptly returns my e-mails with an answer. Hair is her passion and it shows in her work. Kisha doesn't rush through doing my hair and I am relieved that I finally found someone good.
Kisha, please feel free to use me as a reference anytime!

Kisha did an excellent job on my hair! She was very professional, and did exactly what I asked for. I liked that she quoted me the exact cost, and that there were no hidden fees or extra costs for things. She fit me in as soon as I requested and was running on schedule when I arrived. I will definitely be using her again in the future!

Keisha is wonderful. Before my 12 year old daughter's appointment she sat us down and explained all the different options and what each would do and the possible end result. The next day, she did a Strengthening treatment on her hair, it looks amazing! She asked my daughter what she wanted her hair to look like and listened. She took her time and even showed her how to wrap her hair, since its something shes never done. My daughters hair flows and she loves it. We will definitely return as often as necessary to keep her hair healthy!

Since I am new to the DMV area, it has been hard trying to find someone who truly knows what they are doing. Even before the first meeting, she asked me several questions about my hair and what I want to achieve. This assured me that she wanted me to be pleased with the results, so I felt more comfortable after the conversation. I hate going to the salon and leave looking like a big grease bucket!! However, with Kisha, she left me looking light and feathery. She actually took her time with my hair and it looks great. To top it off, she is mobile! It doesn't get much better than that. I am pleased to have found her and I look forward to seeing her on my next appointment because I know I will be looking fabulous! My husband couldn't stop complimenting me on how my hair looked compared to how other salons styled my hair. Oh, and the products are great as well. I even saw her writing in her book about my hair, what she did, and what we need to do next. This shows me that she is very interested in what she is doing. Thank Kisha for everything. See you Friday!!
