Getting braids done any tips?

Question Getting braids done any tips?
Not me but a male cousin wants to get some braids done and rock a natural style, he has a long afro and wants a hairstyle change so I mentioned braiding the hair and he seems to be convinced now of it. What tips do you have for getting the braids done, are there specialty shops where you can get them done etc? Thank you all

The best tip you can have is to go to a specialized shop to get the braids done, don't just get them done by someone without experience. Is you cousin going to wear the braids loose or tied?

+1 on going to see a specialist. Lots of sketchy people offering braiding services.
Beware of traction alopecia which is common with braiding, tell the person braiding your hair to not be pulling super tight.

i once got mine done but they were ripping through my scalp i think i got them done too tight and tied them way too tight too. Made my hair feel funky when they were removed and it was puffing out big style!!

Try to get him to seek out a African/Caribbean based salon, They do cornrow/braids more frequently,do a better job & are typically more cost effective that the average salon.
