I had a few appointments in Boston and had the pleasure of working with Ifeoma (talented make up artist and Medical student), she always has long weaves/hair extensions and hadn't had braids in almost 10 years and her natural hair is super long. I'm talking "Bra-strap length" without it being straightened and Ifeoma is quite tall. I used colour 1b, 2, 4 and 33 with "Expressions" hair. If you notice the ends of her hair are twisted, its a technique I learnt whilst in Nigeria. When I do Senegalese twists I braid the ends, and when I braid hair, I twist the ends as seen in the picture below, it just looks better, especially when different colours are used. Follow Ifeoma on Instagram to see more of her work.
post, we attended a wedding along with Ugonna. Fona has tree braids (also known as fishbone) which I did a few days before the wedding, with milkyway bulk hair. For those who are not familiar with tree braids, click on each picture in the gallery here

Ugonna in one of her creations below, everyone kept asking about her dress, simple yet chic. Check out the website here, check out her tumblr here and follow her on twitter here

I also met up with my friend and the lady behind the blog chictherapy, we caught up whilst doing her hair. I decided to do "Feathers" (short layered braids) and I have to say, I've never seen anyone manipulate shoulder length braids the way she did, as the days went by, the more creative the styling became, definitely one of my favourite clients from Boston.
Boston reminds me of London, considering it was founded by English settlers I can see the similarities especially in the architecture and statues around Cambridge. Apparently parts of Back Bay were modeled after Paris, and parts of the South End were modeled after London, I can definitely see myself going back again, and you definitely have to try the Boston Duck tour here
I was told not to fly to New York as its very close to Boston, so as I waited for the coach I watched the epic Game 6 of the NBA finals San Antonio Spurs versus Miami Heat.
