How does it work?
NoScrunchie exists to highlight the work of Good Afro Salons. We help salons get visible when people search for an Afro hair salon in their area, as well as showing people what they can expect from the service and the hairstyle when they visit list the salon.
NoScrunchie runs Good Afro Salon Awards in November every year. This is a great opportunity for salons to gain great PR within the industry for the best afro salons. New for the 2018 GASA awards will be a Good hair extensions retailer award! We try and stay current by giving awards on the styles and trends that affect Afro hair.
Due to our success in helping Afro salons to gain recognition, we have decided to represent hair extension retailers. We discovered a lot of ladies were coming to NoScrunchie looking for a reputable hair extension retailer and we had no way of pointing them in the right direction and without reviews. Now we are asking for reviews so everyone can see where the best place to get hair extensions is.
From January 2017, NoScrunchie will only represent good salons. Salons with no reviews or with poor reviews will be removed. This is to allow you the consumer to be able to find the best salon with the least hassle.
Every review received during the year counts!
Where are we?
Everywhere and anywhere! If you have used a salon or hair extensions retailer in any part of the world you can rate it or add it to our website. Look out for Salons with our logo in the window, as these are our top salons.
Who are we?
Founded in London 2012, NoScrunchie was created by Leillah Sekalala to solve a problem that she and her friends had. Where are there good salons for Afro Hair? Not average, not bad but good salons that will listen and create the style we want.
As Carrie says in Sex and the City, no stylish woman "would be caught dead at a hip downtown restaurant wearing a scrunchie!" No one uses a scrunchie on an amazing hair day. No one comes out of a good salon with a scrunchie in their hair. What women really want is to go to a salon and have a great experience, and that is why we are NoScrunchie.
Leillah created the brand to be different from other listing websites because peers would leave honest, unbiased reviews of real client experiences. Now it is possible to find out before you leave home if the salon is able to do the hairstyle you want, if they have a visible price list, clean bathrooms and above all good hairstylists.
