Want A Braided Bob Hairdo ? Here’s what you can do.
So lately everyone’s been asking about my braided bob hairstyle and where I got it done. I’ve never really had another person ever braid my hair besides Wendy Lewis. When she couldn’t braid my hair for my trip this year to New York I went to get it done by some Africans who still were not able to really do justice to the style I wanted (big mistake). Wendy has been my braiding hairstylist my entire life. Even as a child , she was the only other person besides my mother that I trusted with my hair because I was sure it would look amazing after . I have not experienced that level of consistency with another hairstylist. Though I love box braids , seeing too much of one thing could sometimes yield as uninteresting to me. Box braids and senagalese twists are a major trend right now with black girls and though I have absolutely no problem with it , my natural instinct is to sometimes shy away from the norm and what better way to do that than by taking some hair inspiration from the past.
The inspiration for my hair was Jada Pinkett Smith in both the movies ‘Set it off’ and ‘Menace to Society’ , those ‘thug life’ 90s flicks. I wanted a hairstyle that was hip , cool , non-trending but still very flattering and the classic braided bob hairstyle popped into mind. What I loved was that she added some great layers giving the right amount of dimension and versatility to my hairstyle. Wendy of course never fails to give me exactly what I want and this time was no different. If you’re interested in having her hook you up you can book her for an appointment with this contact information here:

*If you’re not from Trinidad , I’m sure you can just go to a hairstylist near you and use these images so they know what to do.
Now here is a closer look at my super cool braids that I love and some hairstyles you can rock with it. Can you believe I’ve had it in for over a month already? It’s still in such good condition.
