Is synthetic hair included in the price / Can i bring my own hair extensions with me?Synthetic hair is included in our price list. You can bring your own hair if you would like too.
How should I have my hair when I arrive for my appointment?Hair must be clean, brushed through and free of knots. Braids look better and last longer on hair that has some natural oil on it, so please wash your hair at least 2 days before your appointment and do not attempt to straight your hair unless advised otherwise. If your hair is naturally coarse, please blow-dry them straight.
How long does it take to do braids?This varies depending on the braided hair style. Please see the section SERVICES, where you will see the average duration for each service.
Where are you located ?I am based in 200 Seven Oaks RD, Durham NC 27704. There is a map under the CONTACT section which shows exact location of the place.
How to maintain my braids so they last longer?We all want to keep the braids pretty as long as we can while also avoiding lose frizzy hair. If you originally come with 2–4-day old hair this already helps as the natural oil in your hair stops the hair in the braids from slipping. We suggest using silk scarf when going to bed, which is highly recommended by our clients who have purchased and tested the scarf. This can be purchased for extra $10 on the day of your appointment.
Can't find an appointment ?Appointments can only be booked 7 days in advance. If you don't see any day available on the system, that means I am fully booked for the next 7 days. Check daily for new openings and cancellations within that 7-day timeframe - Spots are limited and get booked immediately.
How long my hair has to be to have braids with extension?For most braiding styles ALL your natural hair must end just below shoulders. For full head of braids your hair can be 3 inches long. However, braids are not recommended for people with a tendency for alopecia as braids can cause further hair loss and breakage to your edges.
What hours are you open ?My work hours are flexible, but there is a rough outline of the BUSINESS HOURS IN CONTACT section on the website. Please get in touch if you require a different appointment time outside my official work hours.
Can braids harm/damage my own hair?Not all hair braided styles are recommended for every hair type. Choosing the correct braiding technique for individual client's natural hair texture whilst taking into consideration length, thickness and weight of braids should cause no damage, breakage or harm to your natural hair. If you are unsure, please email us and we will be happy to advice.
How long will my braids last ?Braids last forever, so the real question is how long do they look good for? This depends on the thickness, length, and size of braids as well as the thickness of your natural hair. It also depends on how well you look after them. Here are some approximate times based on our client's feedback for most popular styles. Cornrows: With or without extensions (more than 4 braids) stay neat from 5-21 days. Box Braids - Senegalese Twist - Knotless Braids (Full head of braids): For kids, these usually last from 2 - 4 weeks. Adults get anywhere between 3 weeks to 2 months. This will depend on the thickness of braids you are after (small/medium/large). Boy's Braids: With or without extensions cornrows stay neat from 7 - 14 days. With single braids (Box braids) you should get anywhere between 14 to 21 days.
