The 9 Best Braiding Spots in London — Rated and Reviewed by Real People
Whether summer sun or winter chill, braids, twists, and locs are the best protective styles for Afro textured hair. The variety of braiding styles is boundless, while their low-maintenance appeal and enduring beauty make them a timeless favourite among naturalistas. DIY braiding is always an option, but if you're looking for that professional finish, then we'd recommend visiting one of our favourite, highly recommended Afro hair salons in London.
Box braids are a classic choice, but the once-staple among protective styles has made way for summer 2020's hottest looks: passion twists and faux locs. Similarly to box braids, these styles use kanekalon or toyokalon synthetic braiding hair, which is not easily recyclable in the UK. Instead of purchasing from Pak's, we recommend checking out the Black-owned, recyclable hair-extensions brand Tiwani Heritage or British hair retailer Spell Beauty for affordable and eco-conscious synthetic braiding hair.
