The rule of thumb is to treat weaves as if they were your own hair, which means with lots of TLC. And while these strands aren’t growing out of your scalp, you bought it (with receipts to prove it), so technically it is “your hair” and should be treated as such. Extensions are an investment with a lengthy pay off. They can last for weeks on end if maintained correctly with these products and pro-tips.
Back in April 2016, we were introduced to Shani Crowe by way of her amazing photography project, "BRAIDS." Fast forward some seven months later, and the Chicago-based artist is making headlines once again; this time, for the ethereal headpiece worn by Solange Knowles during her 'Saturday Night Live' debut. The braided halo, made by Crowe over the course of 50 hours, includes over 100 feet of braided hair and thousands of Swarovski beads. The one-of-a-kind look is not only a testament to Solo's incomparable style, but Crowe's undeniable talent. In celebration of this latest feat, take a look back at some of our favorite images from the BRAIDS exhibit.
