Sonia sources high-quality hair extensions and teaches her clients how to keep braids in longer without damaging their natural hair.
Other braiders pull hair. Sonia is gentle, massaging the scalp to stimulate hair growth and reduce tension.
Sonia learned how to braid in a refugee camp in Benin. She’s been braiding hair using West African techniques for over 30 years.
Opening the African Braiding Salon in Idaho is a dream come true for Sonia. While living in a refugee camp, she learned how to braid hair to feed herself. Now a widowed mother of three living in Idaho, she still braids hair to support her family but does it with a heart full of joy, gratitude, and hope.
