Cornrows on males

20131003-150340.jpg

This client had Indian type silky hair, although it was very soft and silky, it also had a very thick texture which made it easier for me to grasp whilst cornrowing it.
I cornrowed it going all the way back to encourage a more masculine, yet stylish appearance- especially considering his hair was past shoulder length – obtaining a masculine appearance is key.

Shaved back braids

20130924-221706.jpg

Shown client has medium sized waist length braids. The client has shaved her hair in the past so I found it almost impossible to grip the back of her hair. However, after a rapid trip to the barbers, the shaved back adds a punky, trendy edge to the braids. This goes to show that braids don’t have to be boring and simple, the shaved back is emblematic of the versatility and unique style braids can carry.
So don’t be afraid to try something daring with your braids!

My hair feature

My hair feature

So about a week ago I was contacted by the publishers of trailsntresses asking if they could do a hair feature on me. Of course I agreed to it. I was asked a series of questions with which I had to support with photographic evidence regarding my natural hair journey. I’ve never had a feature posted on any kind of public site, so I was pleased to have been given the opportunity to do so. I’ve posted the link, take a look at it!
