About Us

As we say at Beach Braids – Hair Wraps & Henna “It’s a Beach Thang!”

Originally from New England the owner of Beach Braids opened the the first of three stores in Nags Head for the 2005 season. This store is located in the Surfside Plaza – Milepost 13. The Nags Head shop did so well they decided to open the second location in the Scarborough Lane Shoppes in Duck, NC the very next year. In 2009 the third store was then opened in Corolla at the Timbuck II shopping center.

Beach Braids prides itself as being the only exclusive ‘HAIR WRAP, HENNA TATTOO AND BRAID SHOP’ on the beach.
This is all we do …. it is our specialty!
