Crochet Braids tutorial

Sometimes you just ‘like’ a person, without really knowing them. That’s the case with me and this lady I am about to introduce..  So I have gotten my own crochet braids, inspired by a facebook friend named Nancy Schieveen. And yes, I had them done by Alejandro Blijd, again. A hair guru that makes my day whenever he comes by to fix my hair, and, so I just found out, also her hair stylist.

Nancy Schieveen is a Dutch Youtuber experimenting with crochet braids for the first time. The main reason why she has them done has to do with her continuous infectious of girls/women with big, fluffy, bouncy but also straight hair.

Don’t get her wrong she loves her own hair, but after being natural for over six years she felt the urge to switch up her look, to have fun with her hair!

Nancy shows us that a protective hairstyle can be fun, sexy and convenient at the same time.

Dante de Blasio

Dante de Blasio

Wow, the hair! An afro in politics. With articles by Washington Post tittled: ‘With the de Blasios, ‘locks on the national stage’’, and the New York Time naming Dante de Blasio on ‘most influential teens’ list, it is clear that The famously photogenic only son of Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio Dante de Blasio, son of the next mayor of New York, has made a statement with his hair. The publication singled out the younger de Blasio, 16, as the “city’s latest fashion icon” and noted that his “now-iconic Afro” was even lauded by President Barack Obama who previously admitted: “Dante has the same hairdo as I had in 1978. Although I have to confess my afro was never that good. It was a little imbalanced.” (Malia Obama is also on the ‘most influential teens’ list by the way).
