I recently learned about crochet braids and I think they will be my next go to hairstyle! They are so easy to do and with practice, you can probably do them on yourself. It’s the perfect hairstyle if you’re looking for something with lots of volume and curls. Ask your hairdresser if she can do this style for you, for summer!

Maintenance Tips:

  • Before going to bed, separate your hair into 3 sections and twist each section and add a small rubber band or hair tie at the end to secure the twist. After twisting your hair, put on your satin bonnet.
  • After some time, your curls may be hard to manage. Grab a spray bottle, fill it with water, and spray evenly throughout your hair. After this, detangle and add some product.
  • Don’t use a comb in your crochet braids whatsoever!
  • This hairstyle won’t last as long as others. Keep it in for about 4-5 weeks.

AlumnaOn Saturday 14th, 2016 I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Mass Communications and Advertising and with a minor in Health Information Management.

It’s been a beautiful journey. Texas State University has given me so much — my best friends, inspiring professors, and a community. I am so thankful for the university and its people.

College is a journey that not everyone gets to go through. College is a privilege, not a right. I feel as though history is repeating itself — the rich are educated and able to further their education, while the rest of the population cannot. I was able to attend college because my parents were¬†holding onto a vision. They wanted to see their child take off, discover and broaden their mind. I was able to attend college because I had a great support system.

Some of my best and most proud moments happened while in college. Some of my worst, upsetting moments happened while in college. I grew, I learned, I listened, I spoke, I discovered and I bloomed.

To all the incoming freshmen, cherish the time, for it goes by so fast. Go outside your comfort zone and find out who you truly are. To those who have graduated, the real world starts now! I wish you the best of luck in your job search. Searching for a job is hard, tedious, and stressful, but the right one will fall into your lap soon.

Best of luck to all!
