Summer Tree Braids

I have been getting my hair braided for years. Box braids, micros, kinky twists, weaves, cornrows. Last year I stumbled upon "tree braids" while online, and fell in love with them. They look like free flowing hair, almost like a weave, but without the sewing or the dreadful glueing. You can choose any type hair, and do many styles.
Checking out the style on my way home
I live in Madison, WI, and there are a handful of African braiding shops. They are always booked, and they are always small, and as always, PRICEY!!. I have never been afraid to spend some dough and spend some time on getting my hair braided up, but I have developed a small problem. Socializing, that alone, made me keep my distance, thus not being able to get my beloved tree braids!! That and the fact that I couldn't find any info on tree braiders for my area. I finally stumbled across someone who can do it, from their home!! Yay!! Let me tell you, it took me a good week to call her and make my appointment, how sad! Especially since I loved, loved, loved the end product!! Go Lea, go Lea!! That's her name, and she was super friendly, offered to cook me some African food the next time, and we had a great conversation the whole 5 hours that it took. Drumroll please..................TA DAH, the finished product.



This is where I found her:
