The Braid Bar has arrived at Selfridges London – an answer to stylish, braided hair on the go.
Open for two weeks only, this new pop up founded by West London duo Sarah Hiscox and Willa Burton is exclusive to the Beauty Workshop on G.
From French plaits and fishtails to stylish corn rows, you can choose from a menu of 12 styles named after supermodels and stars, priced between £10 and £25, and style takes no longer than 20 minutes.
After repeated requests from Sarah’s daughter Lucy to braid her hair – she realised that there was nowhere in London that she could take Lucy to get a quick braid and not have to pay a fortune for it. With the help of Willa, fashion stylist and girl about town, they saw there was a gap in the market that needed to be filled.
The Braid Bar was born! With Suki Waterhouse and Davina McCall, amongst others, giving them a name check on Instagram – they gained a huge following in a very short space of time. And the demand for braids seems to be growing at speed with stars like Rita Ora regularly sporting the look.
With my new short crop haircut I’m not sure there are many styles suitable for me, but I’ll be going along to Selfridges at some point this week to trial the pretty plaited look.
