I spent most of the day yesterday doing V's hair to prepare for the trip. My fingers are still aching! I put in quite a lot of two strand twists and a few cornrows in the front. I was inspired by a picture on the Hair With Purpose Blog. Again, my style ended up different from hers, but seeing this picture got my creative juices flowing.
Not to make the style sound more exciting than it is. Mostly it is just twists. Why don't I show you?!?!
The inspiration style, I believe, was all twists with just 3 cornrows going toward the back on one side. I ended up doing 4 cornrows on the side, but I wish I had done 3 because I really like how the inspiration style is parted so far to the left and sweeps over to the right side. Maybe next time!
Another change I made was to put a few cornrows going sideways over her head to the right. For added interest I made the cornrows progressively longer.
The back of this style is just two strand twists. I decided to do the rope style twists hoping that they would last longer without getting fuzzy. Rope style twists look cool, but I normally prefer regular twists because they are fluffier and make the hair look more full.
This is actually a style that will look better after a day or two. It looks kind of stringy right now but it will fluff up a bit over time. Maybe I will get some good pics on our little trip and post them for you all to see!
There isn't much else to say about this style. Here are few different angles:
I am hoping this will look really nice for at least two weeks. I used my Taliah Waajid gel in hopes of getting extra hold. I might add a flower clip or two on the right side for some color. After a few weeks if it starts looking messy I will put it into pigtails or something cute and make it last another week or two!
V's opinion of this style: "It's comfortable and me and B look like twins!"
*Yes, this is also a GREAT bike helmet and swim cap style! Which is perfect for a weekend of swimming in a hotel pool!*
I hope you all have a really lovely weekend! Steph will be holding down the fort while I am gone. Be sure to pay attention because we might just have another giveaway coming up soon!!!!
For styles like this, do you prefer box braids or box twists?
