At one point or another every African American woman has either had, thought about getting or knows someone with braids. Braids are used frequently as a transitioning hair style, protective style or a low maintenance hair routine.
States generally do not require cosmetology licenses for braiding shops since no chemicals are being used. Finding a good hair braider involves finding someone who has strong hairdressing skills who is also friendly, courteous and a good listener. One of the best ways of finding quality braiding services is to ask your family and friends whose hair you admire for a referral to the hair braiding salons that they patronize. Another option is to go online and read reviews of hair braiding salons in your area. Some hair salons have websites with their portfolio while some take it a step further and may be into social media. On their Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumbler page you can read as well as see what clients are saying. Pay attention to what people have to say about the stylist’s listening and communication skills. If you decide to visit a hair braiding salon because you like the work you have seen in photographs or worn by other people, make sure to find out whether the stylist who actually performed the work you admire is at the salon and that you can get an appointment with him or her.
Braids whether cornrows, Micros and twists are an excellent intermittent style but you should always stay educated about these hair processes. You need to understand and know how strands of hair are picked up and the fingers that pick them. Do not be afraid to tell the braider your expectations. If you’re worried about your hairline or if they pull too hard, Speak out! It’s your hair, your head and you don’t want to run the risk of breakage or going bald. This is why it’s important to go to an experienced, seasoned hair braiding salon. Do your research on salons and individuals who claim to be professionals.
