I've been googling back and forth back and forth back and forth and I cannot make a decision.
If it were simply based on looks I'd get Senegalese Twists.
Pros and Cons? What do you think will be best for me?
Some things to keep in mind:
My hair is natural
I plan to keep it in for 2 months (maybe 3, but I doubt it)
I only like box braids/SL chunky and long
I'll probably be getting them just below bra strap length since I'm pressed for time
I'll be getting them in NYC but I only have one day to shop and it takes me a long time to shop so I need them to be quick (hopefully I can get two braiders at a time...hope that's not extra $)
Example of how big I want my box braids:

These are cute too, but I'd prefer the chunkier ones above, especially if they take less time.
My family lives in the Bronx which is where I'll be staying for 1 1/2 days so if you know any good braiding shops in the area. There was one I usually went to when I was little but I'd like more options.
