Thank you MTV, now a lot of Japanese get braids, cornrows, dreadlocked et al. As a Hip Hop DJ in training, I got my hair done in the end of last year.
As you probably guess, it costs a lot for brads in Japan. Of course it takes time, it requires money. I paid 13000yen for braids, took almost 3hours. It is actually inexpensive, friend’s price in Japan. (If you are interested, please contact me. the place is located in Fussa, an hour and half away from central Tokyo)
If you wanna get braided or something, you should look up internet first. If you go to a major beauty shop in Shibuya, it costs 80000 yen for full head braids. Or charge 1000yen per one line of cornrow.
