Just move to Austin from NYC. I know the African American population in Austin is relatively thin, but does anyone have a good connection for twists or braids? Please help! My hair is in serious need of some attention.

Sorry - I don't have any tips but I'd appreciate anything you do find out! I'll be moving down from Jersey next month and starting that same search myself!

Default Black Hair Care

I wear my natural hair in locs. I go to Salon E on Anderson Lane in Austin and have Miss Kay take care of me. She is great and will work you in whenever you need it. You will not be there ALL day and she doesn't work on 'umpteen' heads at the same time. Give her a call.

I wonder if I should send my wife this link? Seems like she'd make plenty of pin money from this talent.

Hey! I just discovered another wonderful braider. Her website is Nonye Hair Braiding - Austin, TX - 1200 Kramer Ln Austin TX 78758. She did my hair today and I am really impressed by her work.I think you should try her out.

Default Master Stylist

Found a great hairstylist over in Northeast Austin that does Palm Rolling and Latch Hooking for braids. Check her out! Her name's Kim at Legendary Styles, 4700 Loyola Lane, Suite 108, 78723 (512.638.6547).

Sounds expensive.

I guess you can't get that done with a $6.99 Great Clips coupon.
