It was in April 2014 that Shelly discovered the world of braiding on social media. She found accounts solely set up to show hairstyles that mums had created on their daughters. Deeply fascinated, she decided to do something similar. She started following other hair and braiding accounts: asking questions and continuously watching video tutorials. She also attended hair and braiding workshops. She always challenges herself to create something new and unique. Shelly often braids the hair of her daughter Grace in only 15-20 minutes, before Grace leaves to school. Shelly would braid Grace's hair into mind-boggling hairstyles. Check out them out!
Growing up, Shelly has always loved braiding and would take any opportunity she could get to braid hair.
She developed her unique passion when she began braiding the hair of her daughter, Grace!
Grace's hair was braided most days, and Shelly would take photos in the morning before Grace left for school.
She takes 15-20 minutes on a school morning. If it cannot be finished within that amount of time, she would leave it for the weekend.
Grace's hair was being styled since she was a toddler so she doesn't mind her mother styling her hair everyday.
Lucky Grace, she gets to watch TV as Shelly braids her hair.

Grace's hair is certainly noticed by a lot of people everywhere.
They all compliment Grace's exquisitely designed hair.
