  • what is your policy with children?
    there must be an adult present for any person under the age of 16. 👧🏻
  • what are hair shimmers?
    shimmers are the latest hair trend! ✨ they are 100% silk strands that come in a variety of colors (fun & natural), and are individually knotted onto a single strand of hair ♡ for shimmer appointments we require at least 6 inches of hair to give you the best result 😍
  • how long do shimmers last?
    shimmers last anywhere between a few weeks and a few months depending on your hair. ✨ everyones hair responds differently to shimmers, two sisters could get them by the same braidbabe and one could have her shimmers for 6 months and the others shimmers could last two months, with everyones hair being different we cannot guarantee how long shimmers will last ♡ shimmers may not last as long in fine hair. if you have very fine hair, we can tie the shimmer to two strands of hair for a longer lasting hold. 👍🏻 vigorously brushing hair before a shimmer appt will help brush any loose hairs out && prevent us from tying them to potentially already loose hairs ♡
  • how do shimmers look in curly hair?
    if you're a curly haired babe, strands will blend with your natural curls after a wash 🚿
  • can i use heat tools on shimmers? can i get my hair done?
    since the shimmers are silk, you can treat the shimmers exactly as you would your natural hair. ✨ you can use heat tools, bleach and dye the hair, we promise ♡
  • should i be gentle with my shimmers?
    avoid aggressively brushing or scrubbing your roots when shampooing. 🚿 other than that, treat your hair as usual ♡ dry hands running through wet hair or wet hands running through dry hair can actually pull at the shimmer causing it to fall out prematurely, so we recommend a ponytail or braid while swimming ♡ its totally normal to lose a few shimmers the first few days ♡
  • can my guests arrive staggered throughout the party?
    all guests must be present at the start of the party ♡ this allows us to get a head count and discuss how many babes we can do based on the braids or shimmers everyone is receiving since our parties are time based ♡ we cannot guarantee that guests that arrive late will receive services 🙅🏻‍♀️
  • what braids can my party guests choose from?
    babes can pick any braids off of our party menu 😍 ⮕ these are limited styles based on 10-25 minute braid options ♡ please check out either the "the braids" tab on our website - or - @braidbabes_menu on instagram to see our braid party options ♡ (bonus points for picking out your braids before party time! 🥳) ps. remember our "number of babes" is estimated based on 15 minute braid options ♡
  • we're having a pool party!! can you braid/shimmer wet hair?! ♡
    looooove that for you! ♡ unfortunately we can not do our signature styles on wet hair, && shimmers are at a 99.9% higher risk of falling out by tying them to already wet hair, so we will not perform these services ♡ additionally, if you have braidbabes at your party && get alllll the beautiful, fluffy, boho braids && then jump in a pool... we are not responsible for how the braid looks afterwards ♡
