Cornrows with Curl Puffs and BEADS

Here is the description and more pictures of Diva R's style for Naturally Flyy Detroits 7th Meet Up, as promised.

I was going for something that would last all day while staying nice and neat with minimal if no need at all for maintenance. I had plenty of time to think of a style and this one became the one that i chose.  I haven't really done many fancy looking up doo's with her curls in a "pinned" looking fashion so i was excited to try this new method.  I call this style Cornrow's with Curl Puff's because Diva R doesn't have the texture of hair that puffs like an afro so for varying types sake i refer to her puffs as curl puffs specifically.

I had already had it predetermined that i wasn't going to use bobby pins to secure her curls so instead i opted for matching pony tails underneath the butterfly ballies. I began by parting the frontal section out first which i was going to create the two cornrows with.  I applied our distilled water generously throughout and had created two separate sections, a front and back. I clipped off the front section and split the back section in two pig tails. I applied some Bee Mine Luscious Balanced Cream Moisturizer to each section i was going to pig tail from root to ends thoroughly, this is important because i planned on this style staying in and being well moisturized throughout a whole day without need for reapplication.  So i put one pony tail on each side and had two regular pig tails then i had 4 more ponies in place ready to help fix up the puffs that i am going to create.  So i then grabbed one pony tail and loosely gathered it up by the base and put a pony tail around it almost like a messy bun and i started fluffing her curls in a neater positioning. Then i added another pony tail to complete the curl puff and i repeated these steps for the next side.

I then had created the two curl puffs and i spritzed them with our Bee Mine Juicy Spritz and they were done. I moved on to un-clip the frontal section and i parted an angled part and spritzed some more distilled and added a few dabs of Bee Mine Curly Butter to each section as i began. I cornrowed one side and adorned it with beads and an end clip which i rubber banded on so her hair wouldn't unravel causing the beads to slide off. I repeated that for the second cornrow and topped them both off with a little Juicy Spritz and the style was complete in about 20 minutes.

The results turned out adorable and i LOVE how cute, girly and easy this style was to doo! It is suitable for even formal events.

 It kind of looks like Diva R has really short hair but in reality her hair stretches down the middle of her back.

This style is cute and appropriate for all little girls and can be done on any and all hair types.

So simple, but very cute. I used to do this style on my Ally all the time, but I never thought to add beads. Tres adorable!!

Thank you Elizabeth and Precious!

I love the simple and quick yet very cute and girly styles and its fun to re-create styles from current styles to stretch them out for days as well with minimal manipulation throughout.
