When I was in the third grade, I was gifted a book on how to make friendship bracelets. The book came with string and beads of all colors and step-by-step instructions on how to complete the most intricate designs. It only took about two weeks before I was writing down orders from all of the kids in Mrs. Copeland's class (boys included) for me to realize that this meek talent and small passion of mine could help fill my little piggie bank. But this is not where my knack for weaving things started.
When I was small, I lived with French braids in my hair. My mom had taught me to French braid as soon as my younger sister had enough hair on her head, and it came naturally to me and was a practical solution to tame the thick, unruly hair on my own head. I still love to rock braids of all sorts on an occasion, (or for a special occasion) and love, even more, to braid up the gorgeous heads of my own clients.
I have known Brittney for a very long time and have felt so lucky to finally get the chance to play with her color and style. We are in a bit of a "hair-color-transition" with her right now, which has allowed her hair to currently be extremely dimensional and contrasted. I could not ask for a better colored hair to braid! She let me whip up these fun looks real quick and snap a few photos of her out in a field near her house. It truly is amazing when something comes together amidst my disorganization and lack of vivid direction.
I hope this Holiday Season brought everyone close to their loved ones. Until next Year!
