My boyfriend has been hinting for me to get two french braids all summer. He’s like ‘Babe I think you’d look great with the two braids look’ *wink wink*. So of course me being me I try to achieve this look myself, I mean I looked on Youtube and everything. And because I can braid I thought it wouldn’t be an issue adding a little weave to it ….. let’s just say that experiment didn’t turn out as planned lol it didn’t look horrible BUT I knew it could look better. So next I turn to
I searched hashtags for DMV stylists and looked until I saw the type of braids I wanted. I finally found my girl Devyn’s page, she works at a salon in Clinton, MD. I was able to book an appointment with her in 5 minutes flat just off of her contact information.
How we achieved the look:
She informed me that the trick to maintaining these braids is to blow dry the hair, this gives the slicked down look (I didn’t know this before lol). She also used MAD edge control to keep my hair down. She finished my hair in a hour and half and although I blow dried my hair myself, your girl is MORE than satisfied. It’s my second time trying them in two months and I’ve received so many compliments from a variety of people. For one, I really like the look of my hair, secondly it gives my real hair a break from being manipulated all the time. I don’t have to spend a rack of money on them and they last just enough time (a week and a half) to make me miss my curls but also have the braided look. It’s a win-win.
We used two packs of synthetic hair and she does all of this for a VERY reasonable price! If you’re in the DMV area please check out her IG Devynlee_hairartistry and book your appointment ASAP! Ohh yeah and tell her I sent you! Thanks Devyn.
