What do hair braiding services include?

Braids have always been on-trend because of their longevity and easy maintenance. Whether you've got a special occasion coming up or simply want to transform your everyday look, hair braiding experts can help you achieve your desired style with minimal fuss. Depending on your preference and natural hair conditions, the actual services can involve a wide range of hairstyling processes and tasks, including:

At-home hair braiding appointments

Instead of enduring traffic and spending hours at your local hair salon, why not get a Tasker and get your hair serviced at home? You won't have to venture out, and best of all, you can set your schedule so you can have your hair done at a time that works for you. There's no need to wait for your salon's availability!

You can sit back and relax as your Tasker arrives at your door, bringing their expertise and the right hair styling and tools. From traditional cornrows to more complex plaits, hair pros can help you achieve the look you're going for at the comfort of your home.

Hair braiding for events and special occasions

Looking for a fun and whimsical 'do for your wedding? With Airtasker, it's easy to get your hair styled for celebrations and special events. Whether you're going for a classic French or Dutch braid or something more playful like a waterfall or fishtail braid, experts can create brilliantly crafted hair styles that would enhance your beauty and bring maximum comfort. 

 In case you need help in planning the perfect day, you can also hire a Tasker to manage your event for you. They can take care of all the logistics and minute details so you can relax and minimise stress before the big day. To make things even easier for you, you can find invitation creators, wedding cake providers, and other types of wedding vendors through our friendly online marketplace.

Afro hair braids

If you're on the hunt for African hair braiding near you, then Airtasker is a wise choice. From classic box braids and kinky twists to modern lemonade braids, hairdressers can work with you to create a look that represents your style and inspires confidence. Since African hair is more textured, you can let go of your worries as afro hair braiding experts near you can create beautiful looks while maintaining the lushness and health of your natural hair. 

If you're getting your hair done for a special occasion, you can also hire a Tasker to do your makeup for you. This way, you can assure that your look matches your hairstyle for an overall cohesive appearance. You can even find photographers who can take your portraits or event photos, so you can capture memories you can fondly look back on through time.
