Meet Lynde

nice to meet you

Hey! I'm Lynde

Also known as “The Braid Maven”. I am your go-to girl for not only braids, effortless looks, and extensions, but I love to spark the confident beautiful version of you. 

My passion for hair started at a young age. Doing updus for all of my girlfriends in high school. I tried college for half a semester and then dropped out to attend beauty school. I graduated from Blanco Blanco at age 19 to become who I am today. With 17 years of experience, I have been able to connect my two passions of beauty and love for people. 

In 2012 I opened my first studio space and enjoyed many years with my bestie. But, closed to have more time with my children. I am a wife (to my high school sweetheart and bearded man) and mom to two beautiful boys Ashton and Ari and a baby in heaven (plus my one fur baby lulu.) When we’re not at home we’re enjoying our crazy big family. We love watching dad coach Lady Bear Basketball and finding fun new places to eat.

When I’m not playing with hair I love coffee, crafting, expressing my style with fashion, and all things creative.  I love connecting with friends and traveling the world. 

I knew my journey wasn’t done with owning a salon. I wanted to create a luxury experience behind the chair. I am honored and blessed to be opening my new studio “Mane Artistry & Co.” in the heart of West End Billings, in the adjoined space next to my family’s window business. 

All this to say, I’m excited to continue to connect with people, behind the chair or onsite at weddings. I feel lucky to be living the reality of working my dream job. I truly feel that I am doing exactly what I am called to be doing. I’m glad you’re here. 

xoxo, The Braid Maven
