How long it will take to get your hair braided?
The length of time it will take to get your hair braided is sometimes a major turn off for a lot of people. This is partly because there is really no fixed time on how long your hair will take to be completely braided. This uncertainty for many people is a major hinderance; however, the truth is that not every style will take a long time to get done.
Ultimately, the real length of time it will take to get your hair braided will be based on:
The style chosen – let’s be honest, a style such as micro braids will no doubt take a longer time to get done than a braiding style going straight back. The size is a very crucial aspect since something like micro braids might take hours upon hours while a jumbo braid style might only take somewhere between 2-4 hours. The length will also play a big part since the longer the hair the more time it will take for the style to be completed. Therefore, the choice of braiding style will in the end determine the time you will have to spend getting your hair done.
The braiding skills of the stylist – some stylists are really good at cornrows and box braiding, while many are really good at twisting and locs. So, if you had any style relating to braids in mind, your most appropriate choice should be to go to someone who has the best skills in that field. This is because more skilled and specialized stylist will inevitably get the job done faster than another stylist who doesn’t have much experience with the style you desire to have. Hence, the stylist you choose will also be a factor in figuring out how much time it will take to get your hair done.
