All Things Braids

Samantha Schultz


This month, I'm doing a few features on all things braids! In addition to fabulous recipes and party planning, Pinterest offers its Pinners a great way to find tutorials for new and beautiful hair styles. Since I consider myself as having two thumbs when it comes to styling my own hair, I decided to check out Maxine Salon in Chicago that offers a new Braid Menu.


Spearheaded by Cliff Freeman, the Braid Menu provides clientele with an opportunity to have customized woven styles for any occasion. I'll be featuring some of their work as well as a corresponding pin style to go along with it!

Have you considered the Waterfall Braid? A calming and relaxed Boho braid?

Perhaps you have hair long enough to capture one of these styles.

Something simpler to consider might be the fishtail or herringbone braid.

If you don't feel as equipped or as up to the braiding task, check out Maxine Salon as a way to put the perfect finishing touch on an event. Styles start at $30 and can help bring your Pinterest style to life.

Have you found any styles you would LOVE to try or learn more about? You can see more of our pins and styles on my boards or at Chicago Parent.
