New hair trend: Braid and curl bar

Posted: Updated:

TEMPE, Ariz. -- It’s becoming easier and easier to get the look you want, hairstyle-wise, because of all of the new “beauty bars” popping up all over the country and here in the valley!

The latest “bar” is the newly added Braid and Curl Bar at Mood Swings salon in Tempe.

You’ve seen celebs like Kourtney Kardashian, Alicia Keys, and Rihanna sport those sassy braid styles on the side, front and backs of their manes. Now you can get the same look just in time for all of those holiday partie.

The braid or braids, in most cases, will last three days or even longer. The best part about the braided hairstyle is that you will have roughly a 72-hour break from having to fuss with your hair. That means three days of looking perfect with virtually no effort.

Brandon, the manager of Mood Swings, in Tempe, says the price for a single braid style starts at $15 and goes up based upon complexity. You can get the Brows & Braids package starting at $30.

There is more to just braids at this Braid Bar, you can also have a new curling technique done on your locks, sans hot irons or curlers, but with aluminum foil!
