How should I have my hair before the appt?

Hair must always be dry, freshly brushed and knot free.
All braids will turn out neater and last longer if your hair is straightened prior to your booking. This helps with clean part lines and keeps braids looking smooth and free of bumps and fuzz.
Hair is required to be straightened for all ponytail styles.

Can I swim with them/get them wet?

How long does my hair have to be to be braided?

Depending on what length your hair is can determine the type of braids you can get.
Hair to ear length – Top braids or cornrow type braids, extensions can also be added. Hair to shoulders – box braids with or without extensions.


Please note if you have thick short hair in a blunt cut some pieces of your hair could stick out of the extensions. If this is the case you can choose to add wrapping to your braids to keep your braids more secure and will last longer, it will also hide the pieces that stick out.
If you have thin hair then your hair is perfect for braiding and will blend with the extensions more easily.

Do I need to bring the extensions with me?

No you don’t need to bring the extensions with you. The extensions are included in the price.
Please have some sort of idea of what colour you like before your arrival as we have an extensive colour range to select from. Colours can be viewed in our shop by viewing jumbo braids.

Do you sell the extensions?

What is the difference between Silky and Fluffy extensions?

Fluffy extensions are thicker and have a rougher texture, they are more suitable for full braid styles. Fluffy extensions can be straightened with a hair straightener on a low heat setting. The silky extensions are thinner, smoother and have a silky texture. Silky extensions are suitable for both ponytail styles and full braid styles. If your hair is on the thicker side you may need two packets of silky extensions.
