WHAT ARE CROCHET BRAIDS?
Crochet Braids are not actually braids at all. Its a technique where hair normally used for braiding is laced through a cornrow base. Your natural hair is cornrowed into a basic pattern. Then the hair is attached to the cornrows with a latch-hook.
There is a lot of detail involved with understanding which cornrow pattern to use and spacing of the hair as well as hiding the actual cornrows in order to have an elegant look. The bonus is that you don't have to sit for many..many hours as you would for individual braids and other styles like that.
CROCHET BRAIDS ARE CONSIDERED A PROTECTIVE HAIR STYLE.
Protective Hair Styles are designed to protect the hair growing out of your scalp. Crochet Braids allow your natural hair to take a break from the everyday wear and tear. It is also a healthy alternative to sew in weaves, glue on weaves, quick weaves and, individual braids. There is minimal tension on your hair.
The Crochet Braid style is actually a technique that dates back to the 90's and was a style that Wanda did for her daughters. In fact, it was her youngest daughter who inspired Wanda to pick up her tools again. And it is her oldest daughter, who is a successful master cosmetologist in Atlanta, that also inspires Wanda to master the Crochet Braid technique.
Most common benefits:
- You have access to your scalp
- Your scalp loves you because it can breath
- Helps protect and may promote growth
- Great for taking a hair break from traditional perm/relaxers
- Last up to 6-8 weeks
- Average install takes approx 3-4 hours

THE Best Master Crochet Braid Stylist in Charlotte
I've had 5 installs since February 2017. Ms. Wanda is very knowledgeable about hair care, brands of hair, and maintenance of the hair. She is also about what's best for the customer. I love how natural the install looks EVERYTIME. Every install has lasted at least 6 to 8 weeks. I've received numerous compliments about how natural it looks. Initially, I had a fear of the install having too much volume, but the results were natural and professional. No one could tell it was a crochet install. It fits professional and casual environments. Ms. Wanda is truly the best in Charlotte and surrounding areas.
Natural Looking Crochets
I've gotten my crochets done by Ms. Wanda twice, and have received many compliments!! People still complimented after crochets were in a month. She's knowledgeable, professional, and very positive. My crochets always look natural, especially where it's parted in the front. It looks professional for the work place, and it always feels light (not too heavy). I recommend her to complete your chic and sassy crochet styles if you're in the Charlotte area.
