Stylists good, other employee not so
I thought not to leave this type of review but ater much contemplation, decided as it is real, I would.
Frst of all I think the stylists go a good job. Harlot's prices are reasonable.
What I do not like is the older middle age staff member who some times shampoos hair and very often works the front counter.
She acts as though she can barely contain her disdain for you. She never smiles or greets you.
Rather, she just points; to the shampoo bowl or the dryer afterwards. Her interaction decidely minimal.
She seems as though she would prefer that the clients were NOT so much of a certain type, if you know what I mean.
One time she overcharged me then had to issue a refund. When she realized she had made yet another mistake in refunding the amount she gave me, she simply snatched the money out of my hand! I am a professional woman, and conduct myself as such. She snatching the money was extremely rude. It think it was an example of her brely disguised contempt.
She speaks English but never does says "Hello".
What is with this older woman's attitude? Again, she acts as though it is all she can do to mask her condescension for certain clients.
When she checks you out for payment if using a debit card she manages to ask in English;" Do you want to add a tip?"
But does NOT say "Thank you!!!".
A guess she's gotten used to the overwhelming success of Harlot's salon and takes it as a given even as she is contemptuous
I typically wear my hair natiural and only get it straightened occasionally
I hope to find another shop in which to do so.

If you want soft,straight, and bouncy hair this is the place to be. They used good products and it's everything a dominican salon should be. This is the best one in the metro Detroit area. Yes I've cheated and gone to others. Oh how I regret it. This is the best my curls last for 10 days and I'm growing out of a perm. I have a little damage to my hair and yes it's still soft, shiny, bouncy and straight. I love this place.,

Been going for 5 years..
I will not go anywhere else! I have had nothing but good experiences here, the staff is friendly and my hair is always bouncy & beautiful. I don't relax my hair or use any chemicals but Nancy (my preferred stylist) gets my roots bone straight and the rest of my hair silky and full of body, with what I think is minimal stress on my hair. The bottom line is, I love Harlets and I dont know where my hair would be without these blowouts.

Not Traditional Dominican Styling
I was born and raised in NYC. I have only ever had my hair done by Dominicans... There is nearly a salon on every block for heavens sake. I drove over an hour to Harlets to get a "set and blow" being that this was the nearest Dominican salon I can find. Unfortunately they do not do traditional styling. They use flat irons to get the hair straight. Not what I expected, not worth the trip and not worth the $35 spent. I can get my hair flat ironed for $15, 5 min. from the house. Very Disappointed!!

I've been going to Harlet's fo
I've been going to Harlet's for 2-3 years. Absolutely love it. Ive been part of the Detroit Hair scene for years, a dozen different shops over the years (used to model in Hair Shows and have been friends/clients of several off the owners of Detroit's big shops). No one and I mean NO ONE has been able to get my hair as straight as Harlet's shop and none of previous stylists work lasts as long as hers does. And for $30! I don't have a perm and I get the Blowout. I am black with naturally curly hair with the tight curls that frizz to chin length, bra strap length when straightened (not sure what type that is, but I have seen her do ALL types of black hair with ease) With the traditional black salons methods, I used to get 2-3 days tops of a "pressed" look before my hair frizzed out or my roots puffed up. With Harlet's work/methods my hair can last 1-2 weeks depending on what other stuff I'm doing (working out, humid parties, etc)
Couple of comments on people's feedback, the price goes up the $2 based on the length, they won't know the length til you get there. Its the language barrier. Most of the shop doesn't speak a lot of English, but any time I've started a conversation with any of Harlet or her team we've chatted the whole time. A couple of times I've brought my niece who's learning Spanish in school and the barbers and stylists went around the shop practicing with her. Shop is kid friendly, very clean, and I really like them. Don't consider their initial silence rude, they are very nice and they give me hair tips frequently. They don't do much styling, true, but I just like my hair just long, silky, bouncy and natural looking. Ponytails towards the end of a two-week cycle look fabulous - always get compliments either way.
Yes, she hands me a comb after each session too. I have front flyaways too, just ASK people, when I do she adds a little product to smooth them down. My typical visit lasts 1-1.5 hours.
Can't beat the quality of what they do or the price!

I'm African American, and this
I'm African American, and this was my first time going to Harlet's. I had just had my sew-in weave removed the night before so my hair was very bushy and course. I was a little leery because of the comments about the barbershop up front, but it wasn't a big deal. I just took a seat and waited my turn. I got in about 11:30 and was out by 1:00. I chose not to get a perm, just a blow out. They conditioned my hair first, then rolled it, blowdried it out and flat ironed it. The dryer only got real hot a couple of times around my edges; other than that no problem. They did a good job of keeping the dryer away from my scalp. My hair was so silky, smooth, and bouncy when I left. I liked that they didn't cut or trim my ends because I knew they didn't need it. This will be my new shop. The only thing is that now I'm afraid to work out because I don't know how well it'll hold up once I start sweating.

I love Harlet and the rest of the crew. I have tight, curly shoulder length hair and I am in and out in a little over an hour. My hair is always silky, bouncy and healthy looking for only $28.
