Odile Julian Kukelemena's braid and hair shop is about more than just good hair. It's about more than paying money to look your best.
No, a trip to OJ African Master Braider gives customers a sense of family. It's that same sense you get the moment after you walk into your mother's house, or your grandma's house, or your auntie's house.
Even her nickname is fitting: Mama OJ.
"The spirit," as she calls it, envelopes visitors upon entry and sticks with them long after they leave.
