Braids for the Summer

Does she look gorgeous or what!


After 7 hours at the salon--SEVEN HOURS!--this is the final result.

She has scalp braids with extensions. They stay in for 8 weeks. She shampoos and conditions like normal. LaKeisha recommended them for the summer because braids are better for swimming since they keep the hair from drying out (and the style is easier to maintain).

We all love it! I think she looks beautiful. Here are some other shots.

So now we need to hit the pool, don't you think?

Ditto to the model comments! Gorgeous!
Ouch? Does it hurt, Mary? This question comes from someone with the most sensitive scalp in the world!
Very cool!

Thanks, everyone! Kristina, Mary has a dry essential oil that she uses on her hair (it's liquid but it's not wet--it is really freaky!) that her stylist said to continue using. But I do have some braid spray.

Gretchen, good luck with your move or Oregon! I miss gabbing with you too. :)

Jen, yes it did hurt, especially towards the front. LaKeisha said her whole head would be sore the first night and by Mary's report, she was right!

Heather, Denalee, Kareena, Brooklyn, Emily, and Rebecca--I just love you. That's all.

She's SO pretty! I really like the idea of styling only every 8 weeks, too. Just curious, why the extensions? Did the braids take up all her hair? I'd think short would be preferable for summer? Mary, even if you were bald, you're beautiful.

Rebecca and Co. said...

Mom, I don't know why the extensions....I just showed the stylist a picture and she literally recreated it. Haha. She's a beautician AND a magician. I agree that Mare would be pretty even as a little baldy.
