Tree braider needed in New York!


Hi Kristen,

I found your website in my search for tree braids.  I have never done the style before, but I am interested in trying it, as it seems to be a different look from braids, and probably takes less time.  Do tree braids in fact take less time?  I wear my hair pretty short, and the texture is fine, is tree braiding a style you would recommend for someone like me?  You do such a wonderful job with your styles, are you located in the NY area?  If not, can you suggest somewhere in NY where they do a great job with tree braids?  Your response would be very much appreciated.  Thanks.

Kristen Lock’s answer:
Yes tree braids do take less time then most other braided styles.  Tree braids can take anywhere between 2-4 hours to complete.  The length of your hair is not a problem.  As long as your hair is long enough to be cornrowed then it is long enough to tree braid.  As for the texture of your hair, you just need to find a braider who knows how to braid fine hair.  There is a different technique braiders use when cornrowing fine hair.  As for a tree braider in NY… I don’t know…  But if you are a tree braider in NY email me your information and I can forward it on to the hundreds of new yorkers who ask me if I know anyone in NY who can tree braid.  I hope I answered all of your questions!
