Diva R's Hairstyle from Pretty Brown Girl's Showcase...

This style here is from the Pretty Brown Girl Showcase event that i have been promising. I began with taking pictures before the style was complete. The products i used were Pretty Curls Whipped Hair Butter, and distilled water spritz. I ended up going with some randomly parted cornrows and a Bantu Knot with beads.  Since her shirt was white, black, and purple i chose these colors for the small pony beads as well.


 There isn't much to this style its pretty self explanatory and my parting was random and i just created as i went.  Below is a picture of the top view before the top two pig tails were made.


 So the next morning i finished the style and in total it took 2 hours. Here is the complete style in its 1st version. This is how Diva R wore it to Pretty Brown Girls Showcase event...

 

I began with spritzing a small amount of distilled water throughout her hair and then as i braided i dabbed in some Pretty Curls Hair Butter in Lemon Meringue. I simply pig tailed the back and then i created a braided Bantu Knot the the free hanging middle section.



 My sweet girl loved her hair <3


Miss Love Your Girls Biracial Curls!!!


I was super surprised at how long this style actually lasted!  So i decided that a few days into it i would cornrow the Bantu Knot section so that we can have complete cornrows throughout.  I figured with it like this it may last even longer :) Randomly throughout the style period i spritzed her braids with distilled water. Then i reapplied some light moisture spritz on her hair 2 times in a 7 day period.

So it remained a whole 7 days! Below are some shots of her 1st and 2nd re-style...


 Her is the 2nd and final style alteration i did...


In the pic above you can see that i undid the pig tails in the back and i braided each side instead and then added some butterfly ballies to the mids and left some of the bottom braids/beads free.

Below is what her ends looked like right after i took the rubber bands and beads out. The first thing i do when i see ends like that they are in need of great heavy moisture and so i spritz distilled water on and squeeze it in and i follow it up with a thick cream tub moisturizer and for this time around i used the Bee Mine Luscious Balanced Cream Moisturizer and i twirled her curls into it around my fingers until the ends were heavily coated and i let them soak. Anything with a shea butter foundation and a nice mix of healthy hair oils will do just fine :) After styles like these i always give her hair days to breathe before i style it again..
