Default hairbraiding advice needed

Is there hair braiding on Princess Cay? If so, how much? We'll be on St Thomas, St Marten, Turks, and Princess Cay. Where is the best place to get affordable nice braids?

I don't think there is anyone on Princess Cays to do hair braiding, as it is a private area for Princess cruise passengers only. Be very careful getting braids done on the island as the natives will tell you one price when you start and then it's another price when they are done.

I had my hair braided on Princess Cay's in 2000, don't remember noticing it there when I was there in 2010. Any of those places shouldn't be too bad. Just before to set the price upfront and maybe have a witness with you when it's quoted. I've never personally seen anyone get hosed though.

Yes there is a hair braiding hut. If you think you are going to be doing that, pack a bandana to cover your head while you sleep until you take it out. If you do not it frays and looks ratty very fast!

I think I saw them braiding in February when we were there. I'd bring my own comb...

I second the post about bringing your own comb.

I just returned last Thursday from my cruise and was at Princess Cays on Wednesday. There was someone there that day doing hair braiding, because she asked if I wanted my hair braided.

Don't forget to teach your daughter to tap the braids (vs. scratching them) when they are itchy. This should help eliminate some of frizzies too.
