• Braided + Upgraded


    Braids are the summer style staple for taming those tempestuous tendrils.  And the messier the better.  Not necessarily by choice but by the sheer fact that who has time to fight flyaways + fight frizz amidst the elements of outdoor play.  But, if you ask me, the plaited ‘do has been around for a long… Read More
