My Story


Hello! My name is Denise, Protective Hairstylist of Creative Crochet Braids. I have almost 25 years of experience braiding hair of various thicknesses, lengths, and textures. For the last 15 years I've regularly installed crochet braids on myself, family and close friends. The experience earned during this time allowed me to gain a significant amount of practical knowledge in crochet braiding techniques, installation, styling, and maintenance. With my crochet braiding skills enhanced, I started getting requests from extended family, friends, business associates, and strangers to style their hair.  The increase in interest,  along with a change in my professional career, led me to form Creative Crochet Braids, a home based protective hairstyling service.
