My 18 year old daughter arrived in PDLA last night with her friend. Today, she was approached by one of the hair braiders. I think the ones close to the Parque la Paz.
My daughter explained that she didn’t want her hair braided and had no money with her to pay. Despite this, one of the hair braiders grabbed my daughters hair and started braiding it, refusing to let her go. My daughter was then told in no uncertain terms that she should return with 30euro, or there would be consequences.
This terrified my daughter so she returned with the 30 euro. It’s left her quite shook up though and she’s considering flying home after less than 24 hours in Tenerife. I’ve also posted this on the forum and it would seem that this isn’t an isolated incident.
