Hair beading

Is hair beading offered anywhere on the island? Our 4 year old had it done in Cancun and loved it, she wants it done again! What would be a reasonable price, and is it OK to haggle a bit?

Thanks, Karen

I'm not sure of the cost, but at Rockley Beach where the women sell sarongs & sun dresses etc. there is usually someone that will braid hair.

There's a lady that is often around Dover Beach who will approach you asking if you want hair braiding, not sure what she charges, but it's definitely a good idea to haggle a bit!

Failing that, there are hairdressers etc around the island that I'm sure would happily oblige - if you let us know which area you are staying in, I'm sure somebody will know of a hairdresser nearby!

Divi is on Dover Beach (or opposite depending on which block you get) so you should be able to find the lady there, if not, there is a barber shop up by the playing field - Paradise Barbers, they will probably do it if you ask!

In that case, the lady at Dover beach is your local one. She's most likely to be located at the end where the vendors huts are down by Escape.

Please,if your child has European type hair , don't let them braid close to her hairline. A four year old's hair line is not yet set, and tight braids will pull at the hair line too much and could cause it to receed.

A few beaded braids through the hair will be much prettier and safe for her hair's future., but then that's probably what you intend.
