Since school began, we still haven't quite got into the swing of things. We are always rushing out the door. One of the problems is hair time. I decided to style her hair on Sundays, and leave it in for the week, and then wash on Saturdays. Since we started doing this, we saved a good amount of time in the mornings. Here is our style for the week.
1.) I parted her hair ear to ear.
2.) Starting in the back of her hair, I wet it with our spray bottle and make 4 large braids.
3.) In the front of her hair, I made a swirl part. I started the swirl from the front of her hair, going towards the center.
4.) I made a cornbraid around the swirl.
5.) I repeated step # 3 on the other side of her hair.
6.) Inside of the (2) swirls, I created 5 small cornbraids (starting from the left) going towards the center of her hair.
7.) I made 5 more cornbraids (starting from the right) going towards the center of her hair. -FYI: I did the opposite of step #6.-
8.) I gathered her hair from center of the swirl (total of 10 braids.) I combined them into one large braid.
9.) On the sides of her hair, I made two cornbraids going down towards her ear.
10.) I added some beads and combined the two braids.
11.) I did the same on each side of her hair.
12.) In the morning, I unraveled the 4 braids in the back and made a ponytail.
Approx Time: 1 hour
FYI: This style lasted 6 days.
