Loved it!!! Absolutely beautiful!!!
Dr Prenik spent over an hour consulting with me and assisting me in making my decision with my hair. She THOROUGHLY educated me about proper hair care and gave me all my options. I came back the next day and got an electro therapy treatment, a custom blend treatment, shampoo, conditioning, cut and style with rods all by Erika. Erika was absolutely wonderful. She explained everything and was so nice to work with. Everyone there checked on me to make sure I was comfortable.

Best Salon Experience Ever!
This was honestly the best salon experience I have ever had! The shop is clean, the ambience welcoming and calming, as was the staff. They all know where they're doing and after a thorough consultation talk you thru what is best for your hair without pushing unnecessary products or services. I left the shop with healthy hair, hair softer than I ever imagined!

Love this place!!!
Chemosh was my hairstylist and I absolutely love her! She has worked miracles on my hair and provided me so much information on how to upkeep it because I am absolutely clueless in what to do with my natural hair! The store is beautiful and offers so many spa and hair options to their clients! Money worth spending!

Great Consultation! I Should Have Come Months Ago
I had a wonderful consultation experience with Kim. I've been transitioning from relaxer to natural since July, but was becoming frustrated & tempted to relax my hair again. Kim did a detailed analysis, told me what I was doing wrong, and the type of products I needed. I tried her suggestions and it felt like a miracle. It's the most manageable my roots have been since I stopped relaxing my hair. I truly love my natural curls and will NOT be getting a relaxer after all

Great Hair Experience
I am in the midst of the healthy hair challenge and my experience has been very positive. Kim and Robin are very professional and knowledgeable. The salon is relaxing and Dr. James makes you feel welcomed and that your service is appreciated. She and the whole team makes you want to come back. Keep up the good work!

Thanks to your salon for educating me in a very short time on my hair and scalp. I began the natural hair journey a year ago and having NO natural hair salons on my side of the water and listening to\reading many different ways to go about hair care but still not seeing my wanted results, I was ready to give up and go back to the creamy crack as it has been so frequently called. Thanks to 88.1,I have now found a salon I think will help me get my hair to the healthy natural state I desire.

My first appointment at FOS was outstanding! I was greeted warmly and promptly by Prenik and Kim. The shop is clean, well organized, warm and inviting. My hair consultation was excellent and very thorough. After receiving my services, I left the shop feeling very empowered to grow a healthy head of hair with the help of the wonderful ladies that attended to me. Thank you Prenik and Kim, it was a wonderful experience and I look forward to working with you and the end results. Tee

Felt Special and Focus On My Concerns
I thought the consultation was targeted to my concerns and on determining the root of my issue. Everything was explained and why my problem areas was being tested. I felt that it was very thorough and that the method would get to the root of the problem. I would definitely recommend to a friend.
Oct 19, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760

Wealth of Information
Beautiful location, professional service, knowledgeable owner/stylist. Informative consultation hair improved after just one visit. Products available on-site and stylist actually shows you how to achieve the look you received on your own and personalizes a treatment plan for you hair. Great Job, Prenik!

Prenik is my hair’s knight and shinning armor
Best salon I have found in Hampton Roads and I’ve been here for 13 yrs. Prenik was very professional and you can tell she loves her job. I needed serious help, because I decided to do the natural thing with no clue and youtube wasn’t heping. Prenik sat me down & went through everything from my hair type to what products to use for my type of hair. She even wrote down direction on how to care for my hair after I got home & shampooed it. I will be return in two weeks & I can’t wait.
Sep 20, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
The Best First Visit Ever!!!!!!!!!!
Prenik is an expert and is very professional. The usual beauty salon will have you sitting there for hours before getting started on your hair. Not Prenik, her schedule is for you and you only. No waiting around. When Prenik has you in the chair, you are her only focus, she doesn't have you under the dryer, and one at the wash bowl. I found a great hair dresser and can't wait to go back. My natural hair is flawless, compliments everywhere I go.
Aug 26, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
Since going natural I have been searching for a salon that had the health of the hair as a priority. After my first appointment, all doubts were diminished... love my hair cut (and others do also).She let me know exactly what she was using on my hair, the reason why and what I should expect from the product. Home care is very important to me. Prenik explained the steps I would need to take at home. I was impressed with her caring attitude. It made the dent in my purse a bit more bearable.
Aug 20, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
Prenik welcomed me with a hug(that made me feel so comfortable), then she explained everything about my hair and the products.

Excellent Hair Salon
My daughter love the braids Ms. Deborah did for her. She couldn't wait to go to school the next day to show it off. Lol. Thank you Ms . Deborah and Ms. Prenik.

Glad to be back at Fruit of the Spirit
I went back to Fruit of the Spirit hair salon after about a 6-month hiatus. Prenik gave me the Design Essentials Strengthening treatment, and I love it. I was sad that I had to get my hair cut because of my raggedy ends (and I still need more cut) but I know that my hair is in good hands with Prenik. She cares about the health of her clients' hair, and she really takes her time to make sure she does your hair right. It's nice to go to a salon with such a loving, Christian environment!

A Daughter's Thanks

I was overwhelmed with my visit to Fruit of the Spirit Hair Care Salon. Ms. James was so knowledgeable and caring with my one-on-one consultation. I was impressed with the spirit-filled environment. She explained each phase of my hair care regimen and the do's and don'ts of my home care processes. Her knowledge and professionalism are award-winning attributes that she possesses.
Feb 26, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
I would to thank the Fruit of the Spirt Hair Care and Clinic for such an informative seminar. Also, in the absence of Miss James, I would like to thank Deborah for my hair consult. I feel that I better understand the hair growth process and the changes that occur over the years I will refer other friends to your establishment and also support other services that you provide.

I decided to take the leap and go natural after seeing the beautiful results my sister has. My consultation with Prenik was wonderful. She was very informative and she explained everything in detail. I'm excited about this transition and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is serious about healthy hair.
Dec 8, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
This salon is absolutely a place I will visit again, absolutly professional people and nothing but quality service. Ms. Prenik, though rather expensive, is a wonderful stylist, very knowledgeable of her craft/skill, & just an all around caring individual, I was sold on her personality alone. Yes, I will be returning to her for more treatments for this Natural Hair of mine, because she is just an all around great human being.
Nov 26, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
The salon is very neat, clean, and professional! The consultation gave me solutions on how to treat hair, and keep it heathy and stylish. I was also very happy with the end results! My hair not only looked excellent, but the treatments used on my hair helped resolve issues I was having with my hair, such as shedding and dry scalp. I will definitely be returning!
Nov 13, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760

Sep 17, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
My personal experience at the salon was good!
After using the recommended shampoo, invigorating cleanse, scalp energizer, and intense therapy, my scalp was still dry and extremeley itchy! As a result, I used the scalp oil (MGP clobetasol propionate topical solution , USP, 0.05%) that my dermatologist advised me to use for my itchyness. Later, I found out that this contained alcohol and sodium hydroxide. What should I use for this problem?
Aug 18, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
Well I just stared the process of getting my hair Bach to health but so far I'm pleased with da service.
Aug 5, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
great customer service
Very nice and professional services. I went there to get knowledge about my natural hair and through the consult was given a recommendation, now to be honest the services are pricy but I purchased a shampoo that was not in stock and with great customer appropriation was given some from the back bar...how awesome!!!!
A satisfied customer
Jun 7, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
I got to Prenik in 2009 and stayed with the program.Today, I am wearing my own hair in the braided/twisted style that I love. It has been a journey, but my hair is healthy and I have someone who knows my hair again. The enviroment she presents her service is very relaxing, quite, giving the customer a sense of being home.
Jun 3, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
This was my second visit I love the friendly and caring environment. The staff was very professional and I am very satisfied with my service I received. I absolutely love my hair color that was a custom blend that JuDale create along with my natural hair style done by Prenik.
May 19, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
A unique experience
This was my first visit. I found Prenik and Kristen to be very spiritual, professional, and knowledgeable. I especially liked that I wasn't in there for hours. I usually don't go to hair salons just for that reason. I don't have all day to sit while the stylist is juggling three heads. I like the personal, dedicated attention. I also like the way my short natural looks and feels.
May 13, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
This was the first salon I've gone to in 2 years. The service was great and my stylist was awesome. She gave me some info and tips on my hair that I definitely needed
May 3, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
PRENIK IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Prenik is very passionate and professional. she let's you every step of what she is doing to your hair. i love that as well. i am very glad i found her. PRENIK IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Apr 28, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
Not your typical "VA" salon
As with most, I'm very critical about my hair. Until finding Prenik, I would go out of town for my salon experience. Well, no more..she is amazing! She not only cares for my hair but me as a person. Prenik is professional & respects my time. She is a forward thinker & truly passionate about customer service. I'm simply grateful.
Feb 28, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
An Enlightening and Spiritual Experience
Ms. Prenik is very knowledgeable about hair, she takes the time to ensure that you understand the condition of your hair. Everyone is talking about getting healthy well what about your hair? Fruit of the Spirit addresses healthily hair. Ms. Prenik works on the inside (spiritually), as well ensuring you look good, and will educate you on your hair. This is not just another salon, this is "FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT" Thanks Prenik

Nov 24, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
Patience and caring
My hair stylist was Pernik. She did a great job. She got my straighter than its ever been without the use of a chemical straightener or "sodium hydroxide perm". She cares about healthy hair, & not just giving you a hair style. Her prices are higher than the other hair salons but it's worth it. You get what you pay for.
Nov 14, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
Results, results, results

My Free Hair Analysis was the best hair consult I have ever had. I was greeted with warmth and a smile. Prenik is clearly an expert about the health of hair and what it takes to bring it back to a healthy state. Prenik truly cares about the client and their needs. I am happy I met her and look forward to using her hair care system to increase the health and vitality of my hair. I would recommend her to anyone. Her professionalism is very rare and refreshing!

Having been with the same wonderful stylist for 25 years, I was very apprehensive about having someone else do my hair. However, my first experience at Fruit of the Spirit Salon was great! The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional and my hair looked great. They take time with each customer and make you feel at ease. I am not so sure about never having a relaxer again : ), but I have signed up for the "healthy hair" plan and look forward to my return visit.
Oct 24, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760

My experience was great!! because i suffer with alopecia, I the staff treated me like VIP. The staff was kind and friendly, everyone seemed to be knowledgable and concerned about restoring the hair to it's natural state. I would have to say that they are pricey but if you think that you are worth it ...I strongly recommend Fruit of the Spirit.

Oct 10, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
My overall experience was very good. I love the way my hair feels with the steam press (silky and soft). However, my hair style wasn't what I expected. Everyone was extremely kind, but the faces lacked smiles and looked a little stressed and a little sad. I will return because I LOVE the way they take care of hair!
Oct 2, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
After hearing about Fruit of the Spirit on 94.1, I decided to give them a try. I was welcomed by a very blessed and professional staff who was very encouraging and helpful in explaining my hair problems. My hair has never felt like more refreshed after leaving the salon. I'm recommending Fruit of the Spirit to all my friends. Thank you and God bless.

Renewing The Mind & Scalp
After two visits to the Fruit of the Spirit Salon I have learned more about abusive hair care practices & other factors that can lead to hair loss than I have over the last 10-15 years. Now that I know what I've been doing wrong I can correct the problem. I'm so glad I heard the salon's commercial on Star 94.1FM. I could tell from my first consultation that I was going to enjoy working with my healthy hair specialist Cindy as we took on the "Healthy Hair Challenge!"
Aug 11, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30054760
Taste, See, and Experience that this place is Good!
Prenik and her staff at Fruit of the Spirit are by far the best group of people I have ever met in the hair care field. They have dynamics among themselves that surpass all others. When I frequent the salon, everything that I have experienced on the outside is just that...on the outside. I feel confident that I am going to receive the best haircare service and I will be totally satisfied. Thank you Prenik and your team of beautiful woman for changing my life. I have my hair back !
