My name is Fatoumata Sissoko, also known as Kounkou. I am also the owner of Yaki Hair Braiding Salon. I am happily married and proud mother of three beautiful daughters. Yaki Hair Braiding Salon is more than a business for me; it is also a lifetime dream come true.

I have first started braiding hair more than 20 years ago in my beloved home country of Mali. As young girls, one of our favorite pastimes was to braid each other’s hair mimicking our older sisters, aunts, and mothers whose duty it was to pass down the skills learned and perfected from generation to generation.

At Yaki Hair Braiding we are all about providing the highest quality service to our customers at an affordable cost. Our state of the art salon is conveniently located inside the Security Square Mall. It is spacious, tastefully decorated, and equipped with all the features necessary to meet your hair braiding needs.

All of our hair stylists have several years of experience with African style hair braiding. They are among the finest in Baltimore, professional, and courteous. At Yaki Hair Braiding, we take great pride in the result of our work and will go above and beyond to make sure our customers are satisfied and would return again and recommend us to friends and relatives.

We specialize in all African hair braiding styles such as Corn Braids, Box Braids, Weaves, Dread Locks, Twits, and many more. So I invite you to browse our photo galleries and make a note of the ones that you are interested in. Don’t see a particular style that you are looking for? Don’t you worry; we are open to customize any styles and will work with you step by step until we produce a style that you are happy with.
