Who We Are

What is NappStar?

NappStar is a trendsetting natural hair salon that specializes in eclectic natural hair styles and trendsetting loc styles. NappStar is a professional, efficient, and creative natural hair salon that strives to make all its clients the best version of themselves through their natural hair and locs.

NappStar was established by Melissa & Annette Roche in Maryland, in May 2010. When they were teenagers, the two Congolese-American sisters were brought up assisting their mother at her African braid shop. Natural hair and locs have always been their specialty which is how at such a young age, they have over 30 years of combined experience.

At NappStar we pride ourselves on our excellent client services, our punctuality with appointments, and our creativity in natural hair and loc maintenance and styles. We also specialize in flawless Loc Extensions that can last up to 5 years and the Pineapple Weave that is 100% flat and inflicts zero tension on the client’s natural hair. Our stylists use excellent products and use healthy hair techniques that allow our clients hair to grow, grow, grow!!! Please feel free to come into one of our locations for a free consultation, and look through our style books featuring our signature styles. If you are too busy for this option, we have numerous pictures online to view at your convenience.

Why just be a happy nappy, when you can be a Nappstar?!
