Twists and Cornrows Up-Do
I'm determined to get good at cornrowing this summer. I understand how to cornrow but just need to work on perfecting my technique. I was playing around the other day as part of my practice to master it and came up with the hairstyle below.
HOW I ACHIEVED THE LOOK
This style started out as me wanting to braid it into a fro-hawk and have fun manipulating the loose hair different ways like twists, twist out, braid out, flexi rod set. I wanted to cornrow the sides straight back but had some difficulty so I just braided the sides going down instead. Then, I decided it would look cute if I twisted the loose hair in the front so I used my shealoe cream and tiny twisted the front and (moisturized with my SMCHM aka Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus (Curl & Style) Milk) pinned the rest up. That's it. I'm all about simple and chic hairstyles. Cornrow experts, I know you all could freak this style idea.
I started on the right side so those braids aren't as nice. By the time I got to the left side, I was more "warmed up" so they came out a little better looking.
The cornrows are decent enough. If they were good like the pros, I could leave them in for up to 2 weeks. I will keep practicing. They're so fuzzy. How do I get them to look neater and not to look fuzzy? Do I need to use gel or something else to avoid this? Cornrow wizzes, please share tips!
