Here is a style from November of last year and this style in particular was done for pictures :) It is what i would say is a Combination Style. It includes a half hawk on top with her normal ringlet curls (finger twirled) hanging loose, one big center cornrow going up into the hawk on each side of Divas head. The back half of her hair is in pig tails with her lovely loose ringlets dangling nicely...
The Side shot :)
We just used Twist and Locks Natural Honey Formula Gel... and i twirled her curls one by one with my two fingers for a simple yet elegant look for her formal pictures :)
This style took about and hour and a half or so :)
The style below was done in Dec of last year and was the first simple bigger sized corn rows style in an angle that i attempted and i think they turned out rather well. I was going for something different but simple and i was heavily practicing big sized cornrows at this time :) Per some advice i received.
As you can see my sections may look nice but my hair grabbing isn't as clean as it is becoming over several months of practicing.
The below pic has the embellishment of choice which is a little purple butterfly and i just nestled it in between two of the c-rows :) I used the Twist and Locks in this Style also, i liked the hold of this gel versus the Lets Jam gel...
(Look at those LONG baby hairs!!!)
This was shortly after i learned how to french braid... I never knew any type of braiding methods or styles outside of the regular braid that would hang from a pony tail...
I added a ballie to accent the butterfly and off we went. This style took about 45 min ( Back then i was SNAIL slow)
My mom was a fan of the big poofy curly hair via curling irons and LOTS of hair spray when doing my hair as i was little, she also loved the super tight pony tail with fluffy curled bangs, or pig tails with loose braids...
Hope you enjoyed our reflection :)
