Crochet braids in San Antonio

Delving into the immense world of protective hairstyles can often feel overwhelming when trying to decide on what type of hairstyle to choose, and more importantly, which method of hairstyling to go for. There’re obviously traditional braiding methods, and then there are weaves and wigs, but have you ever tried crochet braids? Crochet braiding is one of the many techniques used to create protective hairstyles and it’s a relatively quick and easy method of installing hair extensions. To schedule an appointment for crochet braids in your area, you can head over to or use the Booksy application (which is available for download from your iOS or Android mobile app store), to begin your hunt for a salon that offers crochet braids in San Antonio. What are crochet braids and how are they done? Crochet braids are a type of protective hairstyling solution where the installation process involves integrating hair extension pieces with the help of a crochet hook. At certain salons, you may also see this service referred to as “latch hook braids”, but both names allude to the same process. Overall, the crochet braiding method is often compared to the process of installing a weave, however, the only difference is the tools being used. So, contrary to the name, crochet braids aren’t necessarily braids, because the moniker has to do with the means of installation rather than the style itself. Though crochet braids can come in the form of box braids, twists, and faux locs, they also often present as voluminous curls of varying textures. With crochet braiding, you can likewise play with aspects such as length or color, to create a customized look that speaks to you! But what does the process of getting crochet braids done look like? Starting with freshly washed and dried hair, your stylist will cornrow your hair back to create a base for the hair extensions to integrate into. Using a crochet hook, they’ll then add bits and pieces of the hair extensions into the cornrows, creating a loop of hair. Once the loop is formed, your stylist will secure it by pulling the tails of the hair through it. This process will be repeated until all the hair has been installed. Then, the hair will be styled accordingly—for example, if you’re opting for a braid style, your stylist will complete the process by braiding your tresses. Usually, crochet braids take anywhere from between ninety minutes and three hours to fully install. For some people, this may seem like a lot of time, but it actually is much quicker than other protective methods like braiding, which can take sometimes up to eight hours to complete. And when it comes to how long they last, crochet braids can be worn for up to eight weeks if you’re providing them with the proper care.  How do I choose the best service for crochet braids in San Antonio?  Not only will you need to decide on a style of crochet braids that best suits you, but you’ll also need to find a great hair care provider that offers crochet braids in San Antonio.
