Nubian Designs Natural Hair Salon - "Keepin' it Curly, Funky, Sophisticated... NATURALLY YOU!"

Salon Policy

New Client Consultation Consultations are FREE and BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please call Nubian Designs at (843)207-1077.  ALL NEW CLIENTS must receive a FREE CONSULTATION before scheduling their first hair care appointment. Consultations are complimentary (FREE) and are designed to improve our overall service and your salon experience. The consultation is a 5-10 min conversation with a staff member to determine your hair care needs, desired results, length of time for service and pricing. It is also a time for you to review photos of the various styling possibilities. There are NO SATURDAY CONSULTATIONS due to the high volume of scheduled clients being serviced on this day.

Preparing For Your Consultation Please arrive at your consultation with your hair in its natural state. If you have hair loss due to braids, twists or weaves, your stylist must be able to see this to allow for an accurate visual analysis and to determine your hair care needs.
Preparing for your Appointment Nubian Designs offers a complimentary shampoo and daily conditioner with each of our services. However, here are some guidelines to ensure you get the most out of your hair care experience.
  • Please remove of braids, extensions, twists, or loc styling before your appointment. If your stylist has to remove braids and extensions without prior notice, this will incur additional time and charges. It may also result in the need to reschedule your appointment.
  • Prior to arriving for your appointment, please comb through your hair thoroughly after you have removed all braids and extensions.
  • Please do not apply any chemicals, heat tools or blow-dry your hair prior to the service, unless instructed to do so by your stylist.
  • Please refrain from shampooing or irritating your scalp 48 hours to a hair color service.
