Student Spotlight- Tamarie

Tamarie Cosmetology Student Braiding

Tamarie is a cosmetology student at our school that has been working on braiding for quite some time. We recently featured a video of her hairdressing braid work on our @studyhair Instagram page. Go check out her hair braiding account @babaz_braids on Instagram.

Here are a few things she had to say about her work.

✨What inspires you?

My designs are inspired by each individual personality, hair texture and style.

✨When did you realize braiding was a passion of yours?

I realized braiding was my passion when I started to seek doing it more than other things. I like it more than having a social life. Braiding become my hang out moments.

✨How do you stay focused while creating your designs?

It is easy to stay focused braiding. It relaxes me in a way. I loose track of time. I helps me express what I’m not able to do in words.
