Share this and help a friend SLAY!

Have you noticed that more women are opting for crochet braids lately? The reason being is that it’s a great protective style for your hair.  What I love most about this style is that it’s really easy to maintain and you can achieve almost any look with it.  It’s also great for those who may be transitioning back to natural and don’t yet know how to style their natural hair.

How To Install Crochet Braids

Check out TiffanyNicholsDesign’s YouTube tutorial above on step by step instructions on how to install Crochet Braids.  However, if you’re short of patience, you may opt for a natural hair stylist who can install them for you.
