Lola Braids
Classic Knotless

Lola Braids are our traditional knotless box braids. They are installed with the yaki braid hair you're probably all too familiar with. These are easy to install, easy to wear, and easy to remove. They help retain length by protecting your ends as your hair grows in uninhibitedly. 

  • ​Texture: Straight

  • Maintenance: Very little- check out our YouTube video on braid pruning

  • Density: Low 

  • Default length: Waist 

  • Mimics your own density

  • Not optimal for thinning, balding, or patchy hair

  • Duration: 8-12 weeks; touchup at 4-5  weeks

 

DISCLAIMERS

  • Bluntly cut ends will begin to stick out of the braids, causing the style to age prematurely. You should seriously reconsider this style if you will have had a haircut within the 30 days preceding your appointment. 

  • For best results, 3 inches of hair is recommended
