Amber at her college graduation, May 2010.
My friend Amber Young loves to get Micro Braids. I've always wanted to try said hair style, but I swore off braided weaves since the age of 15. And unlike me, she's had a good experience with this type of hair. She swears by it!
NAME: Amber Young
OCCUPATION: Special Events Coordinator and Recruitment Specialist
CURRENT HAIR STYLE: Micro Braids (human hair)
"I've been braiding my hair on and off since I was 5 years old. I had my hair braided all four years of college and I still rock it in the "professional" world. It really works for my lifestyle. I get my hair braided by my mom's friend in Delaware. She has a salon in her house and she is AMAZING. I style my hair this way because it's just quick and easy to take care of! I just run my hands through it, spray some water and sheen on it and tada! When I perm my hair or have it out, I tend to flat iron it WAY too much. The last time I lost A LOT of hair, which was no fun because unlike other ethnicities, it takes our hair a super long time to grow back."
