    Yep. I found my new best friend!!! CAN I tell you how amazing Ora is? She was very attentive and professional but still very welcoming and accepting.
    I drove from Sacramento just based on her reviews and energy when scheduling. I am glad that Ora helped me start my loc journey.

    Ora K's saloon was a superb experience, I will absolutely be using her services to help maintain a healthy hair regiment. The finished product was awesome and left me feeling beautiful, and my head and hair clean. I have been getting compliments on my hair since I have used her services as well. People respect the craftsmanship and skill. I would suggest this saloon to anyone who really is serious about getting their hair did! The prices were average for a re-twisting and the products used are of great quality.
    Ora as a saloon owner was very professional and courteous. Not only did she take my appointment last minute for my birthday weekend, she was vigilant about getting me the style I wanted. She was a great host and stylists. I will have to make special mention of her assistant, Andrea, because she washed my hair and twisted it. Her skills for washing hair have to be mentioned. She scrubbed my scalp and washed my locs so well, I felt my problems washing away as well, and I have very thick hair. She has magical hands, and I look forward to another wash with her.
    I would absolutely recommend this shop, and will continue to do business with this growing establishment.

    Ora K Locs was a great experience. Not only did she take me last minute and fit me in her schedule, I love how my hair turned out. I got a dye, an amazing wash and and a style that was so well done, 2 weeks later it is still fresh. It was a great experience, and I look forward to going back to seeing her and what magic she can do with my locs. The prices were also reasonable, and she uses the best product to really stimulate healthy hair culture. Go to this place if you want a great experience where your locs will get a lot of needed attention.

    The actual woman herself is pleasant and attentive to what my wants and needs were. A gem, and a true loc-tian, I look forward to seeing her as my locs grow.

    I recommend Miss Ora to anybody and everybody that has dreadlocks or is considering starting locs! She's quick, clean, and makes you feel at home. Very informative about your hair and takes the extra effort to get you the style you want. She'll have you feeling like a million bucks! You will know you're dealing with a professional the first appointment. She definitely takes pride in her work and it will speak for itself. Her service is priceless. Give her a call you won't be disappointed.

    Ora is such a sweetheart and it's a plus that she's phenomenal at her craft. I always walk away feeling like a gorgeous Queen. I feel bless to have found her and have no plans going anywhere else as long as she's locking hair.

  • *****

    She knows what she is doing and is very professional. At first when I got here I was skeptical but when she started treating my hair, I realized that I knows what she is doing. From the wash, product use to the twist themselves I was amazed. I will be coming back with my nieces.

    Side note. She is very funny, which I liked

    Thanks

    I had my first appointment at "Ora K Locs" salon this past weekend and man, I am beyond satified. Before I found "Ora K Locs" I was recovering from a bad loc treatment experience. During my initial search for a technician to start my locs, let me just say somehow I ended up in the client chair of a cosmetologist who had led me to believe they could do 'Sisterlocks/Brotherlocks'. I discovered the person didn't know a thing about Sisterlocks but was told that she could do Interlocks but I later found, after my hair had been snagged and botched up over 17 hours/2 days sessions, that Interlocs was not a talent that technician possessed, either. After a few months of ponytails, I searched 'Yelp' for a lead on obtaining a proven professional loc technician. After browsing down the list I retrieved, there she was, Ms. Ora K. And it was quite obvious by all the accolades and 5=star client reviews she had, that I need waist no time in getting the opportunity to sit down in her client chair and scream "Help me, please!" I drove to the shop and telephoned from my parking space across the street to inquire if she had a minute or two to take a look at my hair and let me know if she could fix it (of course I knew she could, as her reputation preceeded her). When I passed through the door I was immediately impressed. Ora's shop is located in a cozy loft inside of a fabulous women's fashion boutique. Ora was so welcoming and friendly, just like someone's I'd known for a long time. We clicked immediately. She is so down-to-earth and she knows her stuff! She gave me an appointment for two days later as another client had just cancelled. It took only a few hours for her to work her skills and have me looking good and ready for a party night on the town (see attached: a pic is worth a thousand words). I hope that if you are reading this review, you have not had a prior experience like the one I had, and just want to say, look no further, book your next appointment with Ora K.

    Ora did an amazing job on my hair! It had been 3 months since my last appointment with another stylist and she fixed my parts and made my locs look new and amazing. Also, she is great to talk to and she's funny, times flys when you're having fun. Also she is so fast! At one point you look up, and it's already time to leave! You have to go to Ora! my new stylist for forever now.

  • *****

    Ora is very wonderful and knowledgeable in her craft. She uses her own products and is very conscientious of the hair. She really takes pride and quality in what she do and I am very thankful to have her for my Loc specialist.

  • *****

    I rarely get my locs professionally done because I am very particular. However, I needed an updo for a wedding...researched and found Ora. She did an exceptional job. My locs were not tight and pulling on my edges and weeks later I was still getting compliments as though it was freshly done! Her prices are reasonable and fair. I highly recommend Ora and her services. Thank you for your professionalism.

  • *****

    I am absolutely amazed at the work that Ora does! She did a fantastic job for my wedding and I'm so happy with the price and service. After my first visit, I received complements for weeks. The setting is super comfy and Ora really listens and knows how to communicate about the particular style you have in mind. She's also very creative and loves to brainstorm about ideas.

    I absolutely recommend anyone needing lock work to visit her! Her nick name should be "The Locksmith" because she is super skilled at this craft!!

  • *****

    Great vibe, nice energy. And she did a great job on my hair. She works fast but it's done right.

    Ora K is the best hair stylist in the Bay Area. She is a loc perfectionist. She used the best shampoo , conditioners, and grease on my hair. She takes her time and perfects every part. She even does loc repair and restoration. Charges a lot less then the other salons. You leave here feeling very satisfied. My locks have never looked better.
