Braids & Twists

Your hair needs to be at least 3 and a half inches long all over to hold either of these styles.

Braids/twists can be washed gently but as per your usual routine, taking extra care to rinse them thoroughly, as left over suds can cause a flaky irritated scalp. Dry by wrapping your hair in a towel. Any loose ends or flyaway hairs can easily be tamed by running a tiny amount of hair gel down the length of your braids/twists once they are dry. Please do not use straighteners or hot hairdryers on these styles.

Recommended life span is 6 weeks. Some people tend to leave them in for longer, but this creates a risk of hair breakage and dreading at the roots, so I would advise against it. To remove them, simply cut the ends off your braids/twists and unravel.

Please note that you will be left with what seems like a lot of loose hair once you have removed your braids/twists and combed your hair through. Don’t worry... the average person sheds around 100 hairs from their head naturally each day, these styles simply trap them in until they are unravelled!

Braided Extensions

Standard braids are simply three sections of hair woven together and sealed at the bottom. They can be done in single colour, separate braids in different colours, a number of colours combined in each braid, or a combination of all three.

A full head of braided extensions will cost £175 for down to shoulder length, £200 for mid back, or £225 for waist length braids, for up to 6 colours. Appointments take between 2 and 2 and a half days.

Please add £75 to the above prices for the braids to be done with the ends left loose (straight & silky, wavy or curly) to cover the cost of the type of hair required. Extra small braids are also available, priced at £300 per full head due to the extra time and effort demanded by the style.
Individual single braids are £1.50 each.

If you are looking for braids without extensions, a full head will cost between £50 and £75, depending on the thickness/root size you are after.

Rope Twists

Rope twists are a form of braid using only two sections of hair. When wound together they create the same pattern as a piece of rope or twisted cord.

They are slightly thicker than braids, and can be done in one colour per twist, two or more blended colours, as well as two colours twisted around each other, or a combination of all of three, depending on the effect you are looking for.

As with the braids, a full head of rope twisted extensions will cost £175 for down to shoulder length, £200 for mid back, or £225 for waist length twists, again for up to 6 colours. Appointments take between 2 and 2 and a half days.

Please add £75 to the above prices for the braids to be done with the ends left loose (straight & silky, wavy or curly) to cover the cost of the type of hair required. Extra small twists are also available, priced at £300 per full head due to the extra time and effort demanded by the style.

Individual twists can also be added to other styles or sold individually for £1.50 each.

Without extensions, a full head of rope twists will cost between £50 and £75, depending on the thickness/root size you are after.
