Strands of Beauty braiders are employees, not independent contractors, and are not for hire. Any braider soliciting or entertain solicitation will be terminated immediately. Any client caught soliciting a braider for hire will be asked to leave and service will be terminated immediately. Please do not cause Strands of Beauty employees to loose their jobs, or risk having your service terminated immediately by trying to get a braider to do your hair outside of the salon.
We are committed to providing healthy, quality, professional braids done “right and not tight”©. If you are tender headed, please inform your braider before your service to ensure the correct grip pressure suits your comfort level. Please understand that braids are designed to be installed relatively tight and looser braids may result in less style longevity.
Strands of Beauty is not responsible for scalp tenderness or sensitivity, sores, hair loss, or any hair/scalp condition resulting from service received outside of our salon.

We do not give refunds.

If your bank does hold you liable for this $50.00, we will cover the entire liability for you, up to the full $50.00.

Prices quoted in your confirmation are starting prices and are subject to change due to the following: your request for a different length, hair type, hair color, style change, size of braids or something different from your original request as stated in your email confirmation (i.e., if your natural hair requires more time or weaving hair than was allotted at your original quoted price). Therefore, you will be informed of any price change at the start of your service.
We try to honor requests for braiders but can not guarantee that the request will be met.

If you are late to your appointment and another client is scheduled after you, we will go ahead and start your service until the next scheduled client arrives. At that time, we will suspend your service until after the completion of the on-time client. We will then finish your service when time permits.
