What: Non surgical face lifts done at your local hair salon as seen on that pillar of news television, Access Hollywood.
How: The tension from four, tightly braided and strategically placed small cornrows (near temple, near brow), “lifts” the area around your cheeks, eyes and forehead.
What the fashion heads say: $100 for a non-surgical facelift is a steal. Madonna uses this technique.
What I say: Anyone who has ever had cornrows/weaves/or a heavy-handed momma can attest that this technique really does work (along with the required after-braid headache and damaged to hairline), but $100 for four braids is bananas. Save money by either getting a friend to do it or hooking up with a local African braiding salon.
