Terms About Braiding

Braiding, sometimes also called a weave, is a type of a human hair style. Many hair and beauty salons specialize in different styles of braiding that produce different looks. Always discuss a hairstyle with a stylist before getting started. Several terms associated with human hair braiding are listed below.

  • Relaxer – While some types of hair relaxing products are sold over the counter, it is recommend that this product be applied in a beauty salon by a professional stylist, as it uses a good deal of chemicals that can severely damage hair if not use properly. It temporarily relaxes the curls of stiff hair to make it easier for braiding, but it will have to be applied again in 6 to 8 weeks.
  • Micro Styles – The name comes from the extremely small size of the braid. The stylist weaves human hair extensions that can be the same or different colors into the natural hair. This style is good for adding length to short hair and many accessories, such as pins can be added to the hair.
  • Hair Extensions – Hair accessories that are made from from actual human hair as well as synthetic materials. They are used to lengthen natural hair. Various options abound, including clip in, sewn and weaved extensions.
  • Flat Twist – A style where the hair is twisted against the scalp and braided. The overall look is thicker than an average braid.
  • Cornrow – Somewhat similar to style to the flat twist, in that the hair is braided against the scalp. However, in the cornrow style the hair is kept in straight lines and is not twisted.

    Salon braiding is generally sought out by mostly women, however some men also enjoy braided hair styles. Many beauty salons tend to specialize in this type of styling technique. Commonly, many of these beauty salons also offer light perms and also hair relaxation treatments. The treatments that make the hair curlier are perms, and treatments that straighten the hair out are referred to as relaxing treatments. Historically, braiding has only been popular in African cultures, but it has become more common among other cultures. Hair style braiding specialists offer numerous styles. For example, cornrows are the kind of braid that runs across the person's head from front to back. Twist braids look like natural dreadlocks. Micro braids are very small braids that blend into the natural hair. Hair extensions are commonly used with micro braids. Braiding with an extension is sometimes also called weaving. These salons also sell accessories and products designed to properly care for braided hair. Accessories may include clasps and pins. Beauty salons may also sell wigs that simulate the various braided styles. They offer advice on hair care and maintenance. Stylists, obviously, also cut and color hair and sell salon quality supplies and products. Prices vary, depending on the style and what other stylist work that needs to be done. Although braiding is primarily offered to women, some men seek professional braiding services, especially for special occasions. Most of the complicated and tight braiding styles are designed to improve the look of and take advantage of the particular qualities of hard to style hair. Men often seek braiding services, generally cornrows. Products used in braiding include hairsprays, hair pins, and needles and glue for weaving.
