This first one is just two cornrows. I wanted to get away from our usual routine of using her ever-present side part, so this is what I came up with...
Not intentional, but this ended up looking a bit like a heart in the back.
The second style I wish I knew a name for. It's been done a million times before, I am sure I wore this style as a kid. I have done it with B's locs. So in an effort to be creative I added a twist! Literally. With each ponytail that was going to feed into the next section of hair, we made a twist.
These aren't just regular twists though! This was my attempt to imitate one of my hair idols, the Babes in Hairland momma. I saw this post on uneven rope twists and totally fell in love with the idea. I didn't realize at first that you need to make these rope twists the same way that I do rope twists on V - by first twirling each individual section of hair before you twist them together. DUH! But once I figured it out, they are as simple as can be and a fun twist on twists! Check out her blog though, she also has a bunch of cute styles done with uneven braids. SO CUTE! Who am I kidding, every style this lady does is AMAZING, ADORABLE, and INVENTIVE!
I thought I would throw in these pics of Little E playing around. We always use these close up pics of styles and sometimes I think the styles are actually cuter from a distance and seen as a whole. So, here she is, my not so little, little. Gonna have to start calling her Miss E soon. Sniff sniff.
Go ahead, laugh at those tooth pick legs. I know you want to!
