I finally got some Havana twists. I was supposed to have gotten them last summer after talking about getting them for some time now, but went in another direction. After months of growing my hair back, I was ready to revisit the opportunity, but not before try other styles since I didn’t think my hair would be long enough to grip for these twists.
I went back to the wonderful Zarah Charm for my styling, but first, let me tell you how this appointment almost didn’t happen again. Because here we are, the first week of March, and winter decides to hate on my dreams for warmer temperatures by throwing more snow and ice on the region. My office was closed, schools were closed, the Metrobuses weren’t running, and neither was the commuter train to Baltimore (which I take to get to Zarah at the salon). Great. I’d made this appointment months in advance and this happens.
But then the snow and ice began to melt the next day, and operations began to resume (if not on a 2-hour delay), and I was able to make it…and my twists turned out better than I’d imagined! I’ve even looked to see when I can book again.
This is my third visit to Zarah and what I love about it is that she never double-books. When you arrive for your appointment, she is ready. And in my experience, she has always finished ahead of schedule. On average, Havana twists take about 3.5-4 hours for her to finish. My appointment was at ten. I’m sure I was done by half past noon.
NOTE: unfortunately at this time, Zarah currently isn’t accepting new clients, but if you are in the Baltimore area (or you’re willing to travel like I did from DC), be on the lookout by frequently checking her site here.
