YOU GUYS! How incredible is this braid? I’ve been loving my hair ever since I chopped it off with Michael from Sassoon Salon but I’ve been having some major braid envy with all of the gorgeous messy braids we are seeing this summer. On my most recent trip into the salon to get a touch up with my dream team (Nathan and Michael!) I decided to do something a bit different than usual and build a creative braid. Nathan, my colorist, added some extra warmth and blond pieces to my hair for the summer and I’m even considering adding more! Even though I cut my hair shorter, it’s still very thick so having lighter pieces through the ends helps make it feel lighter and gives the illusion of movement.
For the braid, I met with stylist Crissy and we brainstormed a few ideas that would look great. I brought along some extentions to add length and we clipped them in and blended with my own hair. She ended up doing a mohawk-fishtail braid down the center of my head and two dutch braids along the sides, and it all came together into a side swept braid. It was so much fun to build this with her and try different ideas (and be her official bobby-pin hander!).
I’m so happy to have built up a great relationship with my team of stylists at Sassoon because it really is more fun to experiment with those you’re comfortable with and have a good connection with. It’s been so much fun getting to know the team during my appointments and am happy to have found my perfect team! And of course, what’s a trip to the salon without a selfie to show off your gorgeous hair?!? #sassoonselfie
