Hair Braiding

Petersburg, VA has the best Braiders at Benin African Hair Braiding because we are professionally trained.

Our growing salon offers all kinds of braided styles including, Micro Braids (6-7 hrs.), Box Braids (7-8 hrs.), Corn Rows (1.5-2 hrs.), Kinky Twists (6-7 hrs.), Senegalese Twists (7-8 hrs.), Extension Weaves (3 hrs.), Sew-Ins (3 hrs.) and more. Just ask.

We work with relaxed, natural, short or long hair. It doesn't matter. We can give you the look you want.

Braid Removal - 2 hrs. ($50) It's best to come with your hair ready to be braided. It saves time and money.

Walk Ins are welcome, but because of the time (see timeframes above) involved in creating each style, an appointment is highly recommended.

However, feel free to drop in to get an estimate and set an appointment. We'll be happy to discuss how we can create the style you want.

We want to make your visit as comfortable as possible.

We realize that your hair is your crowning glory, so we take each customer's needs very seriously. Please do not hesitate to ask questions about our services and what you can expect.

If you know that you want a relaxer, cut, trim, color or conditioning treatment, please discuss this when making your appointment.

We believe in making the most of your TIME and offering CONVENIENT service for our customers---If you would like to have a Manicure while getting your hair done, please let us know in advance, so we can arrange the service for you during your appointment.

We cannot guarantee the Manicure service will always be available, but we will make every effort to provide it for you, if you give us at least 2 days notice. The Manicure fee is $15 and would be done while you are getting your hair braided, not before or after.

We show great movies that our customers really enjoy while getting their hair done.

I set an appt and called ahead of time to let them know I was on my way. When I arrived, the person that was supposed to so my Senegalese twists wasn't there and had me waiting 30-45 minutes. My appt was for 1pm. Usually when I am getting this design it takes between 6-8 hours. The process took 12 hours. No only was the stylist late, she kept stopping. After about 4 hours she stopped and went to pick another stylist up, that took 45 minutes. Only after 3 days, my twists in the back fell out. I have never had that happen to me before. A few days later 3 more fell out. As I was examining my hair, majority of the middle of my head the twists were braided further than what was supposed to be braided. I do not recommend these people. It was horrible service and horrible quality. If I would've known my hair looked like this before I left, I would not have paid full price for it. It was close to 2 am before I left the shop. So if you are getting Senegalese twists, I do not recommend coming here.

Great Service

The young lady who done my hair was nice and had great attitude. I recommend anyone to come here and will enjoy the service. The ladies are friendly and have a passion for there work. Everytime I visit VA this is my place to get my hair done.

Tatiana does everything she can to make sure you are happy when you call her shop...including referring you to another braider, if she can't fit you into her schedule. After all one hair do can take up to 3 hours, some take 8 hours! I appreciate the fact that she puts her customer's needs before her desire to make the money. When I need my hair braided, I will definitely go back to Tatiana. She's a hard working, God-fearing woman who has GREAT movies to watch while you get your hair done! Lol!
