Top Hair Braiding related questions

Will braids damage my hair?

Not necessarily. If it's done safely and properly by an expert hairdresser, there will be minimal damage to your hair. Braiding your hair helps it grow quicker by protecting it from day-to-day contact with objects that can cause breakage. Any damage to your hair that comes from it may be due to improper maintenance and leaving them on beyond the ideal time.

How can I properly take care of my braids?

There are many ways to maintain your braids and ensure their longevity. Apply a leave-in conditioner twice or thrice a week to prevent drying and breakage. Also, remember to wash them at least twice a month to remove sweat, dirt, and product residue. Make sure to redo your edges as well after your roots have grown and most importantly, don't leave them in for longer than two months as this may lead to damage and eventual hair loss.

How long do braids last?

In most cases, smaller braids last longer than bigger or more complicated styles. For example, Dutch or French braids typically last anywhere between four to ten days while cornrows and micro braids last between three to six months. Sleep can also impact their lifespan. Restless sleep can mess up your hair quicker, so it's ideal to use hair scarfs or a silk pillowcase.

What is the minimum hair length in order to get braids?

For smaller braids, the minimum hair length is typically between three to four inches of hair. For longer ones, five to eight inches are ideal for an intricate and dramatic style. Hair that is longer than eight inches are already meant for extreme styles. The thickness of your hair is also a factor in determining the right length. Generally, thicker hair needs to be longer than thin hair to produce quality braids.

Do I need to wash my hair before my appointment?

Not really. There's no need to wash your hair before your appointment. In general, braids are easier to create and are proven to last longer when there are natural hair oils present. However, if you prefer to wash your hair prior, that is also acceptable. Cleansing your hair can remove any buildup of dirt, so your scalp is clean, fresh, and ready for styling.

How long does it take to get hair braided?

It will boil down to the style that you want. Dutch or mermaid braids without extensions and colouring can take approximately 40 minutes, while cornrows generally take 10 to 15 minutes per row. Micro braids can take about five minutes per plait and for full heads and longer hairstyles, expect the service to be completed anywhere between three to eight hours.

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.
