Check Out Bohemian Soul Natural Hair Studio’s Amazing Protective Styles And Meet The Owner:

When I started my natural hair journey, it was under weaves and wigs. Once I decided I was bold enough to rock out with my natural tresses, I called on Monique from Slique Hair Studio in Harlem, NY to help me out with a bold look to usher me in to true natural hair stardom. The look she gave me was sassy, funky and…got old after six months of commitment.

While I adored the color and swooned over my eclectic cut, I needed something new. I’m very used to changing up my look, but with my hair’s length being a bit challenged, I wasn’t sure how. I thought I’d go back to wigs and allow my one shaved side to grow back, but when I checked every wig store in Brooklyn, I was bored or horrified by the choices.

Then I met Stacy Charles (a natural hair stylist) at the Bohemian Soul Natural Hair Studio while shopping for shoes and we became fast friends, bonding over natural hair. I explained to Stacy that I needed a new look that didn’t fully turn my back on my natural hair. She showed me the Bohemian Soul Natural Hair Studio’s website, introduced me to Dietra Wyche (the owner) and my natural hair will never be the same.

I opted for Dietra’s “Urban Curl” style, which is a full, curly, natural look that’s installed into my own hair with strand-by-strand extensions. This hair has been the most low maintenance style I’ve ever worn. I can go to the gym without worry and if the wind blows and I’m not trying to cover my tracks. I am 100% in love with this look and if you’re looking for a style to protect your natural hair from the perils of winter weather, check out Bohemian Soul Natural Hair Studio and tell them #TeamBeautiful sent ya!
