Well after dealing with this cold winter, I had to get away once spring hit! And what better place to go on vacation than FLORIDA! I was super happy to be able to relax in Miami, and N was super excited to go to Disney World! So leave it up to me, to start packing the night before we leave lol. In the middle of packing I said to myself "What am I going to do with N's hair?" I wanted a style that will last a long time, so I can be hair-care free! So I picked Classic Box Braids, this style took me 3 hours to complete, and lasted 2 weeks. I wasn't able to take pics before we left because (last minute me, was in a rush lol) but I took plenty of pics during our vacation.
WARNING: PIC OVERLOAD
I divided the box braids into 2 sections, and braided each one. Then I added a hair bow to the ends.
Goofing off in front of a hair salon. Can you tell which one is N?
Yee-haww Get'em Cowgirl!! FYI: she didn't fall off :)
Instructions on how to make box braids:
1.) I started with clean moisturized hair.
2.) I began in the back of her hair, by making a row of boxed parts approx, 1 inch apart.
3.) Then, I made a single braid in the box. I continued steps #2-3 until I was finished with her entire hair.
In this picture, I co-washed her hair (using Organix Coconut Milk Conditioner) after she went swimming and made 4 braids for her to sleep in.
The next day, I removed the 4 braids and she was left with a cute curl style.
As you can see it was starting to frizz up :(
For Disney World, I created a Princess Bun (sock bun) for N while she dined with Winnie & Friends
I removed the sock (after the sock was showing, because of the fast rides) and made a single braid. The beautiful flower is from Fatemeh! She has a beautiful selection of accessories, click here to check out her site.
I created this style by simply making a two-strand twist going down her hair.
And we lived happily ever after
THE END :)
