Monday Mode ☆ Bali Braids

August 29, 2011



My older daughter was very eager to get Bali braids done on her hair since she found out that we were going to Bali. I bet she saw her friend’s hair braided in Bali. I wasn’t so sure about it because I didn’t want her to expect us to pay for the braids every time we travel to a place where she can get her hair done. However, I gave in and let her have Bali braids in the end.
私の長女は、バリに行くと分かった時からずっと、バリの三つ編みが欲しいとおねだりしていました。多分バリで三つ編みをしてもらったお友達の髪の毛を見たんでしょうね。最初は、毎回旅行先でいつもおねだりされるようになってしまったらどうしようかと思い迷ったのですが、結局娘のお願いをきいてあげる事にしました。

There were two places to get Bali braids done in Bali Collection. I first checked the price with a bigger place with fish spa pedicure. They gave me a price Rp. 250,000 which I could tell that it was overpriced. I walked away and the guy lowered the price to Rp. 200,000 which they should’ve given me at first place. I walked to the other place to check their deals. It looks like a small gazebo located right by a Japanese restaurant called Hanabi. When I first asked them about the price for my daughter’s hair, their initial offer was Rp. 150,000 which was even cheaper than the lowered price that was given by the first place. So, I decided to go for the latter one. The ladies were great and friendly. I’m happy with the final result.
バリブレーズ(三つ編み)ができる場所は、バリコレクションに2カ所ありました。まず最初お魚のスパ・エステが外にある場所に当たって、値段を訊いてみました。お返事は、娘の髪の毛だと、250,000ルピアだと言われ、私でもぼられている事が分かりました。歩き始めると、お店の男性は最初にオファーすべき値段である200,000ルピアに下げてきました。取り敢えず、もう一つの場所で値段を確認すべく、もう一つのお店に行ってみました。2カ所目のお店は、和食レストラン「はなび」の横にある小さなガジーボ(屋根があって壁の無い外のスペース)にあります。彼らは最初から、最初に訪ねた場所が値下げした後の値段より更に安い150,000ルピアと言って来たので、迷わずこちらを選びました。娘の髪の毛を編んでくれた女性達はとても親切で、良かったですよ。また娘の髪の毛の出来上がりにも満足でした。

This is how my daughter looked after we untied her braids. I even liked her hair like this better than braids!

      They might do it for you! In Africa, they would braid short hair and put extension which is really cool looking!

    She looks like she tolerated the braiding well…my daughter had some tears! It’s fun to celebrate a vacation with a new “do”!

      I agree! She wanted it so badly by the time she got the braids that she was stoked about it although you might not be able to tell from her expression…

    the photo on the bottom left, where your daughter looks a bit concerned as her hair is braided is so picture perfect. Looks like it belongs in a fashion magazine like vogue.

    Love that you included the after-effect of removing the braids. Her hair looks crimped….how fascinating :)

    Kaho, I really love her hair after you untied the braid. How long did it take you to untie them? How long it stayed like that or was it gone right away after washing the hair?

Lovely Thoughts
