  • what are feed in braids?
    be a braidbabe full of color! 🌈 feed ins are a fun way to add color to your braid without dying your hair ♡ feed ins are also a great way to add volume && length! (yes, this does come in natural colors to match your hair too!) ♡ we have a selection of colors for you to choose from ♡ - you can view those here ⮕ ♡ we will provide all of these colors for babes to choose from, && anything outside of that we can give you a recommendation on where to purchase from ♡ for feed in appointments we require at least 6 inches of hair to give you the perfect style. 🤩
  • how should my hair be prepped for feed in appointments?
    we highly recommend that your hair is straightened, clean, dry, and combed. 🙌🏻 straightening can be added to the beginning of your appointment, it's best if you let us know in advance. (so our babe has enough time in their schedule) ♡
  • do you do box braids && corn rows?

    your braidbabe can apply & style your clip in extensions as an additional add on ♡ we do not provide the extensions so you will need to bring those with as well ♡ here's the link ♡ ⮕
  • 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 single strands 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 cant promise how long shimmers will last ♡ shimmers will not last nearly as long in very 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 ♡
  • what if i do not use one of my monthly appointments?
    if you purchase a paid plan with a recurring payment, the services that have not been used, do not transfer to the next month. when your next payment goes through your plan will reset to the number of appointments in the plan. (pro tip: schedule appointments ahead, you can always reschedule to change the date && not lose out on your credit) ✅
  • what day of the month will i be billed?
    a client who has purchased a monthly recurring paid plan, will be billed on the same date next month 📅 (e.g if a paid plan is purchased on may, 17 the next date when a client will be charged for it will be june, 17)
  • what day of the month will my services reset?
    the number of the services will be reset, once the recurring transaction for a paid plan successfully goes through. 📅 (e.g if a paid plan is purchased on may, 17 you will receive the next two braids on june, 17)
  • does my service have to be scheduled for a day in that month or only scheduled within that month?
    you will be able to book an available service within the month when the paid plan is valid. the actually booking can be scheduled for anydate. 📅
  • my bridal party and i would love braids, do you offer wedding styling?"
    yes ♡ you can now be a braidbabe bride with our bridal options 💍 book for yourself or add all the babes in your bridal party, with the option for additional babes (flower girl 🌸, mother of the bride, etc.) added as well ✨
  • can the clients arrive staggered throughout the appointment?

  • braidbars
    we require a 50% non-refundable down payment at the time of booking to save the date. the remaining 50% must be paid 30 days prior to the event date. cancelling with less than 24 hours notice will result in forfeiting 100% of your payment.
  • all other appointments
    hey now, no one likes getting cancelled on 😭 but here at braidbabes we understand things happen, give us 24 hours notice & no worries you avoided any late fees! 😅 we love notice on cancellations but if you must cancel in less than 24 hours you forfeit 50% of your booking payment. this last one makes us 🥺 (we love you babe) but any cancellation with less than 12 hours notice = losing out on 100% of your booking payment. but hey, we ♡ ♡ ♡ you so much we're willing to reschedule for a $20 late cancel fee. just like a good friend were here for you & totally get last minute cancellations && hope these rules help to keep you in check ☑️ late policy: the appointment is forfeit after you are 15 minutes late, in this case no refund will be given. **unless otherwise specified on promotions
