I can’t rave enough about my experience at Authentic Beauty Salon and Spa. Instead of calling Paulette a beautician she should be called a magician She is a master at her craft.Not only does she style your hair wonderfully,but her main focus is good hair care .Something that is a rarity But best of all she is a GREAT person.

For natural hair, she Is highly recommended. Hair is healthiest in years, I have been a client for 15 years. The experience here is like no other.Paulette treats the mind, body, and spirit. When entering the door the environment is relaxing. Great conversation. She is a lovely person, She cares about the client as a whole.


My hair had fell out due to me putting a bleached color in my hair which my hair is all natural, I notice that the bleach was burning my hair out so one of my good friends told me about Authenic Hair Salon I started coming to her in July within the 2 months which my appointment is in September she notice and other people notice the difference in my hair how much it started growing back in. The hair stylist told me what to do to get my hair growing back, but I did what was told and how I love it love it love it. Will continue to go back.
