So, in our house Combination styles top the charts :) Simply because they are switchable, i can create combination styles that i can make slight alterations to and keep them in for a few days at a time with slight refreshing as i go :) This style Diva R wore a few days ago and i kept it in for 3 days but altered the style each day with new accessories and tightening of ponies along with touching up the cornrows :)
I finger curled her loose hanging hair into ringlets and at the base of each pony i used ballies matching her outfit :) For the cornrows in front i chose to do this type of cornrows going down the side of her head because of those stubborn baby hairs that are 3 inches or better long in most areas... Her hair isn't evenly lined at all anywhere around her head so they will never be perfect in front but i can still keep them girly and cute by adding design to them as well as ballies or something with weight at the ends to prevent them from curling up...
This style turned out so cute, elegant and girly :) It was super fast to do taking 30 minutes from beginning to finish. I am currently using the Bee Mine Botanical Shampoo on Diva R's hair followed by a little Curls Lavish Moisturizer and our new Bee Mine Juicy Spritz. We are still without a conditioner since it seems no one makes any that are safe for her to use that we could find as of yet beside the harsh chemical filled ones in the stores....
Below is our style switch up, i decided to braid all the free hanging curlees into one single braid each section and split the middle pony tailed section into pig tails. The pigtails have some of our NEW gorgeous clippies that nana bought for Diva R :) She got them from Kroger. Then I left the back section in one grouping and just braided one big braid with a rubber band to secure :)
I secured the cornrows that i re-touched with some of our Princess Pink Colored Sidewinders and a small pony bead at the end of each so they dont slide off.
Cornrows are getting better as i go :) and i am finally discovering how to manage these baby hairs!!!
I used the Bee Mine Curly Butter to braid with, as this is the best gel substitute i have found :)
Divas birthday party is this weekend and we have it all set and ready to go :) She will be decked out i cant wait to post all the awesome pics!!!!
