When you enter in the hair braiding industry, it is considered a speciality of hair. The average hair braider can make before taxes anywhere from $100-$500 in one day depending on your clientele base. As a former hair braider , I was able to bring home $6,000 in one month but that’s because I had hair braiders working for me as well. Income can vary from hair braider in a location too. If you don’t have a stable clientele base, income can be low but you can still make $500 a month working part time if you have little clientele.
