When we went last year they had a lady there that did hair braiding. She had a cart on the lido deck. We had to make an appt for my DD. we got the hair braided on the second last night. My DD wanted to have it look good for when she went back to school. After a week the hair gets fuzzy looking as it starts to come out of the braids. My DH said all the girls on the ship were starting to look the same lol.

The hair braiding carts are on the pool deck for each of the ships. They are usually positioned close to the family pool.

Be sure to tell them how many braids you are willing to pay for before they start.

Good advice - thanks! I wonder how many braids we'll need...one daughter has hair past shoulder length and the other has hair past waist.

The length of hair won't matter. The braids are just across the front half of the scalp.

There are 2 different types of braiding that can be done and they are charged differently. Cornrows are $2 each and plain braids are $1 each.
They used to charge an extra 50¢ per braid for longer than shoulder length, do they not do that anymore?

They did have it last week on the Magic - I wouldn't let my daughter do it so I don't know how much it cost but it was located right by the Cove Cafe. She wanted it but I was being picky and didn't want her hair in braids for our pictures - I know - selfish!! Anyway she can't wear it to school and would have had to take it out Sunday anyway. But it was there.

I guess I'd better be prepared to shell out $2 / braid... I know DD will see that and want it!

Here is my DD with her braids- all they will do is the front scalp part. The whole thing cost us $20 and we got it done the first night, Saturday. This was taken on about the 4th day. They lasted a very long time, I think about 4 weeks, before we had to finally take them out. BTW, my DD is pretty tough, but she was in pain the whole time, so prepare your daughters that it's gonna hurt!

A couple of weeks ago on the wonder, they were charging $2.00 for braiding + .50 for longer hair and 3.00 for corn rows (pic below.)

The woman who was doing the braids was also *very* busy. I would recommend getting an appointment early - you can always cancel if you change your mind.
