Thank you for booking your braid appointment with us! A few things before your appointment:
HOW SHOULD I PREP MY HAIR FOR SERVICE?
We highly encourage clients to book a shampoo, blowout with us before your braid appointment. This will allow us to examine health of hair, scalp and properly prepare the hair. If you are due for a haircut, we would gladly like to do that for you if there is enough time allotted.
*If you decide to shampoo and prep your own hair for appointment, please make scalp is clean and hair is dry, detangled and blown-out. If your hair is prone to shrinkage, we recommend you put hair in big twist plats which helps keep hair stretched and ready to braid. We appreciate you having your hair properly prepped as it helps us stay on schedule as well as keep your hourly cost down.
