Braids, braids and more braids!
These unique bars are located within hair salons to give women beautiful braided hairstyles. Like a bar, they offer a full menu of choices, but instead of intoxicating cocktails, clients choose from a wide assortment of braided hairstyles.
Most braid bars will give you a menu full of photographs, but the variations and options of braided styles that can be created are limitless. Keep your eyes open for braids you like in magazines and online. Stylists may be able to recreate a similar style for you. You can ask for a hairstyle that is specifically designed to flatter your features and fit your lifestyle.
Braid hairstyles are growing in popularity; we see them everywhere from the red carpet to the supermarket. Why so popular? Braids are quick and easy to do; you can dress them up or down and they are all unique and cute! Want a refined look? Start by wearing a single hairline braid. A single braid looks sophisticated and is great for the work place. While, teenagers generally like to rock an edgier look with lots of braids.
Celebrities love these braid hairstyles. They have recently been seen on stars including Dianna Agron and Kaley Cuoco at this year’s 2012 Sag Awards and on professional tennis players Petra Kvitova and Victoria Azarenka at the 2011 U.S. Open.
How Much Do These Services Cost?
Most hairstyles at a braid bar will cost around $45. You can save money by shampooing and blow drying your hair at home before your visit. These services will often cost an extra fee that can easily bring your total bill up to $100.
If you aren’t all thumbs and you give yourself a little practice time, you can create your own versions of a number of braided hairstyles at home. There are several videos available on YouTube that will show you how to recreate a variety of braided hairstyles as well. Don’t worry if your hair doesn’t come out perfect. Unlike traditional braids, these modern braid hairstyles look better messy, making them perfect for beginners.
This trend took off in New York City. The John Barrett Salon in New York was recently featured on The Today Show. The idea quickly spread to others cities including West Hollywood and Seattle. Due to the high demand of these styles, you can now find hair salons that offer specialized braiding services all over the United States.
