“Love the Loft!!
I have been natural for well over a decade and have used several “Natural Hair/Braiding” Salons in the DMV. This place is the total experience. From the time I walk in the door I am greeted “Good morning Ms. Bellamy, your stylist is ready for you”. I have NEVER had an appointment cancelled or had to wait, they respect my time. The atmosphere is totally professional. The jazz or contemporary Christian music is just loud enough to sooth you but soft enough to have a conversation without raising your voice. You will never see any African Soap Opera’s, The Maury Povich Show or any of the “Housewives” shows in this shop. I like that the Loft is appointment only. You do not have to worry about your stylist trying to “squeeze in a walk-in” at your expense. The Loft is very clean. As quickly as hair falls on the floor it is swept up. The bathroom resembles a four star restaurants facility. The Braiders are professional in their tone and dress. And nobody is eating while doing hair!! There is no food visible. Clients are offered tea, coffee or water. 
I encourage anyone seeking a professional atmosphere, exceptional service and a hair style that will have people complimenting you for days, make your appointment TODAY.”

Ms. Gina

“Caring Loft has been my #1 choice for crochets and braids for over 5 years! I’ve never been disappointed with my hair once I left the chair. She is professional, friendly, knowledgeable, timely and patient. She is also very creative and will help you decide when looking for a new style.
Her staff are also some of the best braiders in the DMV. You won’t be disappointed with whomever does your hair. I always receive numerous compliments on my styles after visiting the salon and many of my referrals have visited CL and are now regular clients themselves.
I will continue to visit Caring Loft for as long as it’s in business.”

Ms. Jessica

“This is my first visit but it definitely won’t be my last. They did a wonderful job re-twist my locks. My hair looks wonderful.”

Ms. BeLinda

“I am a new client, and will continue to drive the 27 miles in lieu of the 5 miles to get my braids at the Caring Loft. Professional, pleasant and my hair is pretty. #3P #WHIPMYLOCS”

Ms. Sydney

“Absolutely love my hair Diane is AMAZING i will not ever go anywhere else”

Ms. Shaquila

“Amazing experience. Quality braiding that I’ve been looking for for a long time. Update 7/14/2017: I still rate Caring Loft a 5. This is my fourth visit and I always have an incredible experience. So let me tell you all about the service. I wanted crochet braids with a side cornrow design but I wanted the ability to have my side cornrows redone in two weeks without taking my install down. Diane said NOT A PROBLEM and found a creative way to handle it. Not only that but I’m natural and told her I wanted to stop putting heat on my tight 4b/4c curls for a while but was worried it would make braiding more challenging; she said absolutely not, no heat is better for your hair. I was shocked!! NO BRAIDER HAS EVER TOLD ME THIS BEFORE. NOT ONE. It truly means a lot to me that she cares more about the health my my hair (especially postpartum) than the ease of braiding natural hair. Can’t wait to see her again!!!”

Ms. Ashley

“Caring loft is absolutely the best! Diane has been taking care of my natural hair with goddess braids, kinky twist, cornrows, Senegalese twists, pixie braids and box braids for almost 2 years! She’s talented, thorough, trustworthy and she cares about the client. The shop is amazing, comfortable, clean and spacious. This is the BEST place for braids!”

Ms. Taryn

Thank you Caring Loft for doing my hair. My husband loves it! See you in a couple of weeks.

Ms. Stephanie

“Diane is the best! True skills and talent. #blackisbeautiful”

Ms. Queenette

“I’m a current client of Caring Loft and I would like to say if you want to rock braids or a weave, this is the place to come. Ms. Diane is the best in the business and takes pride in her work. I highly recommend her to anyone; you will not be disappointed.”

Ms. Kathy

“I discovered Caring Loft on Facebook. Saw a few reviews from people I know. So I called and spoke with the nicest lady by the name of Diane. We talked about a few different styles, so I decided to make an appointment. I had my appointment today. Diane was very welcoming to me when I arrived. The salon is very nice and clean; she sat me down and we looked a a few different styles; I really like cornrows the best. Now let me tell you about Crystal; she’s the one who did my hair. Very delicate, no hard pulling on my hair and my scalp is not sore from being pulled too tight. She took her time which I enjoyed. I just wanted to give a shout out to Caring Loft which I feel is a very well chosen name. Diane & Crystal: I will definitely be back. I’ve already had people complimenting my hair and I gladly give them your card! By the way it is very quiet and relaxing. Much love!”
