Hair Braiding

Braiding is one of the safest hairstyles due to the fact that you do not need to use any dye’s or chemicals to achieve the desired results. The braid begins as just a few or more strands and then it is interlaced into complex patterns that have limitless possibilities.

  • Single Braids
  • Box Braids
  • Micro Braids
  • Corn Rows
  • Feeder Braids
  • Ghana Braids
  • Crochet Braids
  • Goddess Braids


Twisting is another safe hairstyle process that is achieved without using dye’s or chemicals. Common types of twists include:

  • Senegalese Twist
  • Kinky Twist
  • Nubian Twist
  • Puffy Twist
  • Gel Twist
  • Fox Locks
  • Goddess Locks

Unlike braiding, twists will require a bit more maintenance to make them last after you leave the salon. Just like the name this look is achieved by twisting strands of hair around one another. Follow these simple tips below to help keep your look longer:

  • Avoid getting your twists wet- Consider using dry shampoo and/or a shower cap to keep your hair as dry as possible.
  • Cover your twists at night- A soft headscarf or a satin pillowcase can help keep your twists from getting frizzy after sleeping.
  • Use only high-quality products- Look for natural ingredients such as shea butter, almond oil, and coconut oil. Avoid products with mineral oils.
  • Don’t do an up-do every day- Once or twice a week at most. The less tugging on your hairline the longer your twists will last.


Weaving has many different uses, but is primarily used to add hair onto existing hair using the sew-in method. Braiding your natural hair is the first step in the process of completing your weave. Once your hair is braided we will begin sewing your chosen hair extensions seamlessly into your hair line. Please be aware we do not sell hair for weaves; customers need to purchase extensions prior to their appointment.
