Frika Hair Boutique uses the highest-quality synthetic fibre and human hair for our African hair braiding in Melbourne. Imported from the UK and South Africa, our synthetic hair extensions come in a wide range of styles, including Batik hair, soft dread, curly, wavy, straight, and expression hair.

We have a number of braid styles available, including curly braids, single braids, twist, African braids, open braids, and cornrows hairstyles. We also do various kids’ hairstyles.

Whether it involves adding colour, beading, patterns or hair extensions in Melbourne, Frika takes a unique and creative approach to each style to help our clients experiment with their look. Bear in mind that African hair braiding can take several hours depending on the length of your hair and the complexity of the style.


The cornrows hair style is a specialty at Frika Hair Boutique. This ancient traditional African hairstyle continues to enjoy huge popularity for its great look and easy maintenance. It’s also regularly spotted on the red carpet, sported by everyone from Beyonce and Rihanna to the Kardashian crew.

We have extensive experience with cornrows hair styles and can also accessorise your braids with colour, beading, synthetic or human hair extensions, and different geometric patterns. The braids can be left in for up to six weeks if hair is washed carefully and the scalp is oiled regularly.
