Tree Braids Natural Protective Style & Upcoming Braiding Class

Hey Darlings! The weather has finally cooler and that means that its time for me to get one of my favorite protective styles, tree braids. If you’ve been following my journey from my very first year blogging an even before then you already know that its a must that I head to Strands of Beauty to get my Tree Braid fix.

Protective styles are always my go to styles because of their versatility and ease with my hectic schedule. I’ve been coming to Ethena, CEO of Strands of Beauty since my youngest son was born so this month we’re hitting 12 years. As a natural its very important to me to ensure that my hair is healthy no matter the length. It’s been over a year since I decided to do another big chop and quite frankly I am seriously considering doing another one for my birthday in January which is why this protective style is great because my goal is to achieve the “Heart Shape” tapered cut so the next 4-6 weeks these tree braids will help me retain my length.

Keep in mind that before I went to get this set of tree braids that I dusted my ends and made sure that I eliminated any and all ragged ends. I could care less about the shape of my cut because its been growing out for over a year. The end goal is retaining HEALTHY HAIR. 

Let’s get to the GOOD NEWS! We live in society where entrepreneurship is in high demand and my girl Ethena has stepped up the Salon Game. Imagine having someone come to you in the comfort of your own home or office and having a professional braider come to you and get your hair right! Long gone are the days of heading to a salon and getting your hair done.

I have had the pleasure to visit several of her salons and I was so excited to have the opportunity to experience the in home salon services. Trust me I am totally sold. I love the idea of being in a more personable setting vs. around others getting services done. It gives you that one on one experience. I believe that this new in home service will be a Godsend to those ladies who suffer from medical problems and don’t feel comfortable having their services in a salon with other so this innovative idea is perfect!



My First In Home Experience

My appointment was set a week or so in advance and only day of service I went expecting the same level of service that I have always received in the brick and mortar salon. I was greeted as always by Ethena and after our normal mini catch up conversation she immediately started on my new set of tree braids. I love that Strands of Beauty is always prepared with having your preferred hair color set and each strand is strategically placed so that the process runs smoothly. Strands of Beauty is THE BEST BRAIDING business that I have ever had the pleasure to be a customer of and their service has  remained consistent and top notch from the moment I started receiving services there 12 years ago to Today. I highly recommend their services. Click here and here to get a sneak peek.
