Motherhood, Natural Living And Beautiful Braids

October 5, 2016 by Seymone Brutus

I'm a huge fan of your braid styles! I'm so excited to learn about your style and how you manage creativity and motherhood!

1. How did you learn to braid? And what's the best way for a beginner to learn?

Growing up I was a dancer and my gymnastics teacher was from Poland. She could braid AMAZINGLY. She had to go back home after a few years of teaching here and on her last day she taught us all how to dutch braid. Everyone learns differently but video tutorials are probably the best way for anyone. There are so many available!

2. What's your favorite hairstyle for special occasions?

A braid or low bun, as long as all my hair is up!

3. What is your go-to everyday hairstyle?

I love to do quick, easy braids for the average day. You can see my styles on my Instagram and blog!

4. What's your favorite shampoo and conditioner?

Honestly, I love Dove. I went years without dying my hair and so I stopped using the salon formula’s for color treated hair. Now I couldn’t go back.

5. Are there better rubber bands or hair ties you prefer for braided styles?

Yes! I used to use whatever I could find, but they break your hair and they melt in the sun. At the beauty supply store they have ones that don’t cause damage and they stand up in the heat! Definitely worth a trip to Sally’s!

6. How do you find time to style your hair with two children? 

Most of the things I do to my hair take only a few minutes. I like getting up before my kids, and then I have time to do what I want. But most of the time I end up doing my hair while they are playing in the bathroom or my bedroom, because I only need a few minutes.

7. Do you think it's important for moms to spend time to style their hair? 

If it makes you feel good, then YES!

8. What are some of your favorite styling to do? 

I love coming up with new styles and braids so favorites are always changing. Right now my favorites are fishtails and double braids.

9. What is the color of your hair? How often do you change it? 

Blonde. I actually just colored it with more blonde recently. Before that I hadn’t colored my hair for three years!

10. What do you advise moms who want to be creative in their personal life and business life? 

Figure out how to manage your time and prioritize so you don’t end up getting overwhelmed. Just do what makes you happy and surround yourself with supportive, positive people!

Thank you so much for sharing, what inspiration! I can't wait for your tutorial!
