Chéz Délali Salon and Day Spa’s Instagram
This spring, a whole lot of Black women were suddenly looking at their hair in the mirror and wondering, How the heck am I going to do my own twist-out? Enter Adodo Délali Robinson, the owner of Chéz Délali in Matteson, whose hair designs have been in literal works of art by photographer Sandro.

Robinson’s relatively simple methods — you don’t even have to know how to braid — and calm, soothing voice make a daunting task downright meditative.
