Brownness Babe of the Week: Susy Oludele (@africancreature/@hairbysusy)
Susy Oludele also known as African Creature is our Brownness Babe of the week! Hairstylist, blogger and entrepreneur, she is the owner of Hair by Susy, a New-York city hair salon that caters to all hair types and specializes in natural hair and extension. The girl does everything: Marley twists, senegalese twists, box braids, weaves, yarn locs, faux locs, yarn twists, yarn braids, blowouts, cuts, color and anything you might ever think of. .
She is inspiring. We found our Brownness Babe of the week through Instagram where she posted a video of her baptism. Don’t get us wrong, faith is personal and we truly believe that your relationship with your god is private, but there was something so pure about her baptism. You could feel how much joy this moment brought her, and after reading her posts where she describes her struggles with mental health and various trials and tribulations, we were so happy for her.
She is also extremely talented, has partnered up with Outre Hair on her youtube channel, but also has done hair for Zoe Kravitz (yes, she did Zoe’s goddess’ braids), Solange, Beyonce and Brandy!
Her youtube channel is full of simple tutorials, she teaches how to install and remove crochet braids, Havana twists, style your braids and make a full-wig with lace closure.
Following her is a joy, her creativity and joie de vivre beams through and you never know what knew hairstyle she’s going to rock or what gems she’s going to bless you with! Go Susy!
You can find Susy and her multitude of hairstyles under @Africancreature everywhere online.
