My name is Helen L Skrzypczak. I am from Sudan, in north-east Africa. I came to America via Egypt and I have been in California for 20 years.

My skill in braiding came very naturally. No one taught me, I explored the beauty that could be found from hair on my own. I love everything dealing with beauty and hair. Working with different people from different backgrounds, especially with Americans. My experience in doing hair started when I was eleven and has improved with time. I have been working in America for 20 years in many different braiding shops and on my own. No matter where I work, or what job I have, I always look for the opportunity to create beauty that will rest on one’s head.
