Love Your Girls Biracial Curls: French Braid Style Cornrows

Lately i have been so busy that which ever style comes to mind i just let my hands create as i think it up. I thought hmm its been a while since i French Braided Diva R's hair so why not do some FB's and add a little corn-rowed flair to them.

My goal was a fast and easy style that i could easy change up and fix if needed so she can wear it for at least a few days.

I gathered my Distilled, Curly Butter and Juicy Spritz. I then parted three sections in the design pattern that i freestyled which would be the angled look. I love the angled parts because they accentuate the Diva's face very well and i love the girly-ness amplified along side her cute baby hairs...

Here are the results :) 




Note the half cornrow half french braid appearance. Cute and textured different look while being simple and quick with a touch of versatility= a well put together style perfect for a full day of play and fun!

I used the distilled water as our pre-style moisturizer, followed by the Curly Butter for our light hold product/sealer and finally the Juicy Spritz for our finishing moisturizer.

From beginning to end the style took 20 minutes.

I am still learning how to french braid so as i go they are getting better slightly each time. To me these are harder than cornrows to perfect. There are inverted and everted ways of doing this. 

I was able to keep this style fresh for 2 days and then i re did it and it stayed for another 2 days :)

I learned to french braid first so to me this is much easier than cornrowing. I love the way that they look on Diva R.
