With no hairdressing experience Shelley is self taught and has a real passion for braiding!
Her name is Shelley Gifford from Melbourne, Australia and she has a beautiful little daughter named Grace. Growing up she always loved braiding, and any chance she could get to braid family and friends hair she did. But at the time she only knew how to French and Dutch braid, unaware that so many other extensive braids existed.
In April of 2014 she discovered a world of braiding on Social Media. Finding many accounts that were solely set up to show hairstyles that other mothers had created on their daughters. She loved what she saw and it was then that Gifford started her own Facebook and Instagram braiding accounts.
