Ramona Krieger of Love2Braid has just debuted her latest collection, Black & White. Although her name is Ramona, her close friends and family have always called her “Moon”. Inspired by the moon, Ramona often times finds herself hypnotized by the moon’s beauty.

Combining natural texture, she wanted to use both the beautiful natural curls of her models with a touch of braids.
