New Years Hairstyle-Cornrows and Natural Curls With Jazz

Happy New Years!!!!

It is so great to be able to see a brand new year and to be able to look back on all the accomplishments that we have made as a family.  This New years we rang it in as last year with our Church as we feel there is no better way than to be in the house of God and celebrate the New Year in HIS name and with our fellow church family members and friends. We aren't into the party scene and finding sitters to go out and do tasteless things and this we feel by not doing so is also a great bonding opportunity as well as positive influence on our children and their future decisions. 

So as far as the hairstyle element is concerned i decided i wanted to start experimenting with some forward facing cornrows and some styles like Mimi Braids does :) So as a beginning step towards that i decided to do a front section of her hair in 4 forward facing cornrows into a twist and clipped off to the side.

This style is very self explanatory BUT some detail i feel is necessary... Diva R has stubborn baby hairs that are ever growing so i thought that by doing cornrow styles this way would help to tie in the baby hairs around the edges producing a cleaner looking style.  So it turned out great and i was very pleased with the resulting product. I noticed by comparing pictures my cornrowing is getting better and better :) Yay me!!!!

If you follow the above picture detail by detail you can see how it was accomplished.  I used Bee Mine Curly Butter, Shea Moisture Mist and our distilled water spritz interchangeably.  The beads i used are the "chubbie" beads which are the size in between the small pony beads and large barrell beads. 

I left the other parts of her hair down and in its natural state, which i finger combed some Curly Butter throughout.

 My Diva's new hair time activity is her Leap Frog Leapster 2 which she LOVES. This is a toy that we use solely in times like this or times where there are long waits and no room for play or much talking. I feel electronic toys can be abused easily so moderation is the key when these come out in our house :)

I adorned her style with the cutesy butterfly we got from Cherished Custom Creations by Rebecca Lopez which also helped to hold the bundle of NOW braided together frontal cornrows back out of her face.

This was a new style for us and it turned out to be super cute, easy to do and versatile as well. All in all it took about 20 minutes to complete and off to church we went <3
