I've got my hair braided here twice. I found them on instagram and so glad I did. Living in the Ashburn area I was dreading having to go all the way to Maryland to find a decent hair place but Ly's secret was close, convenient and decently priced. It was super easy getting in touch with the shop and getting an appointment within the week. The first time I went I got exactly what I'd asked for and was satisfied with my hair (cornrows in the front and box braids in the back). Took about 4 hours, braids weren't too tight, was perfect. Second time I went I got stitch cornrow braids. They looked nice but The next day I was so annoyed that they braids kept bunching up at the nape of my neck. I found out that they're supposed to sew them together to avoid that. I contacted the shop to ask about it and was told that I'd have to ask for that. Being that it was my first time getting the style, I didn't know to ask and it was never offered. I loved the braids but had to wear them in a bun to avoid the bunching in the back.
The shop is cool and doubles as a beauty supply with ethnic products to include hair! Prices are great and the options are greater than most targets or Walmart's. I'd definitely given them my business.
Oh service prices don't include hair and being that the shop doubles as a store, be prepared to have to wait while your stylist helps customers from time to time.
Everyone is really nice at the shop. It's convenient and gets you the same product without having to go far to get it. Try them out!
Very nice staff.
I called Ly's after another stylist cancelled on me right before my vacation. There are VERY few decent braiding salons in this area, so I had little faith that I'd like my hair.
They were able to see me for a same day appointment for two feed-in braids. I brought my own hair (two packs). I'm not sure the name of my stylist, but she was a younger woman that was pregnant. She did a great job with my two braids. I like mine pretty thick (which a lot of salons don't do well). She did great & that style was only $30. I'd definitely go back for feed-in braids again. The only drawbacks were: 1. I made an appointment for 6:30 & they didn't start my hair until 7. Since this was a simple & quick style I didn't mind the wait, 2. They got fuzzy pretty quick. I don't see them lasting more than 5 days when this style usually last me about a week.
I had Crochet braids put in today by Helen.. she did a fantastic job! I love it! She's very polite, nice and fast... and only took 90 minutes with no pain... The owner is very nice also.. and the story is very clean and organized. Love supporting women in business.. way to go!
I had Senegalese twists done by Helen and she did an amazing job. My hair is beautiful! She was courteous, professional, fast, and efficient! I will keep coming back.
This is my new go to place for hair braiding in the area. The salon has highly professional staff who can translate any braid look into the brand you want. They also carry a wide selection of hair products and accessories. Helen has a very flexible schedule and they are even open on Sundays! If your looking for a great beauty supply and braiding salon this one stop shop is the way to go!
This was my second experience working with the owner, Sandrine, to get my daughters' hair braided and each was completely satisfied with the outcome. I've been quite pleased with the level of professionalism, flexibility, and focus on quality work, at a reasonable price.
Lys' Secret aims to please and understands the value of their customers, which is commendable. This will be our new braiding salon and I encourage you to give them a try. You won't be disappointed!
This place is a hidden gem! The owner is so sweet and helpful. I was lucky enough to get a last minute appointment. I had Angie, not only is she professional, she's awesome ! Takes her time, and really knows her stuff. Plenty of options when you go in. I would recommend Angie to anyone!!! You can either bring your own hair, or they have some for purchase. Check it out!
10/10. You should stop by, it has everything beauty related and a salon.
I am usually tinder headed but when I was getting braids I was half way falling asleep. They have hands gifted by GOD.
Also they have really good prices
They do amazing work! Making an appointment was fast and easy, and so was their brading. They did box braids on me in 2 hours and 30 minutes. Will definitely go back!!
I am so happy that we have a Black owned beauty supply store locally in Loudoun County. The owner was very helpful in assisting me with finding the best items to fit my needs.
There is a vast selection of products to choose from plus you can also get your hair braided at the shop as well.
Great place to do your hair; Great customer service the stylist was very friendly and willing to work around my work schedule. I love ?? the out come of my hair. I would definitely recommend them to anyone that are looking for professional stylist and friendly environment.
I’m sooo glad to finally have a beauty supply store in my neighborhood! This place has all of the hair and beauty care products I use, friendly staff, and great music playing too!!! There’s a salon in the back too, so it’s very convenient. Helene did my hair when I went in, crochette braids...omg..LOVE!! She was so so Fast! And my hair is flawless! The owner is also super friendly which is always a plus for me. I definitely recommend this store and the salon for all of your hair care needs!!!
I am so proud to see a black owned store In sterling, VA. They are very friendly and the store has a variety of beauty supplies. Not overpriced. I totally recommend this beauty supply store. It is very convenient for me. They also have a upscale hair salon in the back.
I'm so excited that I don't have to drive to manassas for products or to get my hair done. They have an extensive line of products and the prices for the things I checked are better than the other places. I got my hair braided today and I'll be going there from now on. I don't know who the owner is but the girl that did my hair was cool.
Tip: If you have a sensitive scalp or you dont want to lose hair, blowout/straighten your own hair if you are getting braids.
