Our Creed

Healthy Hair & Braiding Technique

The hair industry continues to evolve and grow and the new innovate wave of Braid styles has had a major impact on the progression.

While Braids are one of the most requested, I like to educate my clients on keeping the hair healthy while achieving the Braid styles. I inform clients on proper maintenance to ensure keeping healthy hair during “protective styling” is always priority number one. I am cognizant of hair tension, edges and the state of the hair before, during and after styling.  I encourage clients to be vigilant in styling fresh braids, as there is initially some level of unusual tension.  I also advise clients to keep the scalp cleansed with an antiseptic and moisturized/oiled, as most braiding styles will stay in longer than two weeks.

My Mission

To empower and build self-confidence in women and young girls one style at a time


What I Offer


From knotless braids box braids to feed-in braids, I work with one client at a time to ensure little to no wait time. My method and experience promises a neat and clean look as well as tension free protective style that compliments and promotes healthy hair.


An alternative to traditional sew-ins, crochet braiding is available in both a full and partial install. You can select a full natural hair install to a partial braid and mohawk style. View the description in the scheduler prior to choosing your appointment type.

Kids Styles

My little clients will recieve a shampoo, conditioner, and a moisturizer before receiving their braid styles. I ensure that their style is trendy and stress free on their young tresses and easy to manage for parents.

Natural Hair

Two Strand twists, Rod sets and Loc Maintenance are just a few natural hair styles that are provided. However with any style, nurturing the natural hair will keep the hair growing and healthy.
