In this video Yolanda Renee walks you through the basics on how to do box braids. Her technique is a little different from others.

I wish I could say it was love at first sight, but it wasn’t. The day I came home from the hairdresser, he barely looked at me. I ascended the stairs and tiptoed into the room. He looked at me briefly and turned back to his football game. No words. So I descended the stairs, […]
Last week, I cut off my daughter’s hair –what was left, at least. She has cancer. I expected her to be distraught. But it wasn’t her that was distraught but me.
