Lisa gives acknowledgment to a California Bay Area extension braider, who was kind enough to show Lisa how to professionally connect extensions, while she braided Lisa's hair, in 1985.  Sharing people like her inspired Lisa to give back to her community. 

Lisa takes pride in being thorough and professional about her craft.  She created a "Care Instructions" for her customers, so that breakage can be prevented and that they get the most out of their wear.

Northwest Indiana has provided the bulk of Lisa's customers.  The business has created a second family of satisfied customers that Lisa will always cherish.

Customers are welcome to contact Lisa to have their photos and comments posted, here, about their experiences with Lisa's braiding services.


Extension braids has served as a hair-growth process for decades, when properly prepped and maintained.  It is beneficial to have the hair washed, conditioned, and professionally cut or trimmed, prior to braiding.  This increases the growth rate while braided.  It is imperative to follow quality care and maintenance instructions, for best results.


Lisa inspires to make the extension braiding services a department within the facility being sought for her International Youth ChoirThe facility will accommodate rehearsals and productions performed by the Choir and guests.  The extension braiding services will be an added entity where Lisa reaches out to younger extension braiders and passes business on to them, as she remains focused on directing her youth music programs.

Lisa provides live jazz entertainment for on-going events and welcomes ideas where community extension braiders can be acknowledged, supported, and awarded for their quality services.  Sponsorship for these events are welcome.
