LET ME UPBRAID YOU
Audra Walker's motto has always been "Dreams don't work unless you do." In October 2016, Audra (then 24) launched her business "Braids for Days" to a wild reception. Completing over 3500 client appointments in 3 years, Braids for Days has been a dream come true for this entrepreneur. The self-taught braider and hair stylist has made a huge splash in the hair styling scene in Perth, as well as an inter-state reputation, travelling interstate for clients and education. Audra prides herself on her dedicated work ethic, professionalism, and ability to work with clients of all ages and personalities.
The company prides itself on being home grown and home managed. Audra skilfully manages every facet of her small business, including the staff, bookings, social media, marketing, the website. and of course, maintaining the highest level of customer service.
"I love my job. I love providing the best customer service possible to all my clients; for me, it's all about being open and honest, making sure my clients feel comfortable with me and trust that they will receive the very best service, every time", says Audra. Her vibrant and friendly personality ensures that she easily builds trust and rapport with all of her clients - often feeling like they can chat about anything
Braids for Days has seen exponential growth since 2016,
and Audra is committed to continuing this trend. In
order to keep up with exceptionally high demand, Braids
for Days introduced a new member in November 2018,
Celeste, a second skilled braider. This not only allows
Braids for Days to increase their clientele, but also
means spending more time with clients, online and in person; making everyone feel welcome. Having a second set of hands also means Audra can spend more time working on the business; developing and expanding Braids for Days is an essential part of the business' growth! What will they do next?!
Braids for Days' will continue creating unique looks for clients, as well as continue to host workshops on braiding Australia wide, to encourage beautiful braids all around for anyone who has a passion for braiding. Hosting workshops will assist in further advancing the students braiding skills and also open new avenues in the students careers.
