2-6 Braids BlogWant a look that’s perfect for any occasion, day or night? Check out this braided silhouette crafted by Tia Blake of Versatility The Salon in Hyattsville, MD.

To get the look, Tia rolled individual locs onto perm rods of varying sizes and allowed them to set under a dryer for two and a half hours. Once locs were set, perm rods were removed and locs were arranged into a magnificent Mohawk.
