I know I’m constantly talking about braids, I’ve been talking about them since I started this blog. I love braids and always have. Even when I had creamy crack in my hair I would get braids. A friend of mine is doing braids, Senegalese Twists in particular, as a side gig. I had originally booked an appointment at an African hair braiding shop but cancelled to let my friend do them. She only charged me a small fee considering what she could really charge, and she did an awesome job! I love them. I’ve never had braids this long before and was a tad bit nervous about having such long braids, but I adjusted to them pretty quickly. It’s something about long hair that just makes you want to whip it around like a true diva, lol!
I think it’s very important that we support each other as women, fellow naturalistas, but also as business women. I have many friends who have side gigs in addition to their main 9-5 job, and I gladly support their efforts as they pursue their dreams and passions on the side. My side gig is baking cookies. One day I hope baking cookies becomes my main gig – I love baking just that much. Now back to the braids, after my friend did my braids I posted the above pictures on Facebook and gave my friend several shout outs and thank you’s. That garnered a lot of “likes” and questions as to who did my hair, and I directed all of them to her. I couldn’t be happier for her, and I hope she gets more customers as a result. All I ask is for those who order my cookies and enjoy them is to simply give me a shout out. Spread the word! Help and support each other. It’s a beautiful thing!
Braids Part III coming soon……. 😉
