Lafayette Hair Salon, LoveBugs, Announces They Now Offer African LoveBraids

Lafayette, California (EastBayDaily) — Lafayette’s hair salon, LoveBugs, is proud to now feature a full-service braid bar, LoveBraids by Equella Hearne, a hair braider at LoveBugs. There’s no doubt that braids, whether it’s the messy side braid, French braids or other braid hairstyles, is the year’s hottest and sexiest hairstyle, as proven by its popularity among women and celebrities.

“For men, women and children of all ages, cornrows, fishtails, French braids, whimsical milkmaid braids, and African LoveBraids are perfect for a fine night out, a weekend away, or a special occasion,” said Marika Mavromatis, owner of LoveBugs.

LoveBugs in Lafayette offers African LoveBraids at $40 for 15 minutes, with a 15-minute minimum, and by appointment only. Call 925-283-7700.

Braids are fun and enticing hairstyles that may be worn casually for a day at the park, in a more flirty way for a date, or even in an elegant style for the office or big events. Braided hairstyles are also a great way to make unwashed hair look beautiful.

The braided hairstyle was the best celebrity hairstyle trend for 2011, as noted by the Beauty Stat. Braids went from minimal to extravagant and were seen everywhere from award nights to balls.

“These woven masterpieces are all over the soccer fields, vacation spots and runways,” Mavromatis said. “LoveBraids are the classic alternative to a no-fuss, long-lasting, spectacular hairstyle.”
