Going out, need it quick, no time for cornrows or braids, but you want it unique and with some class. Well here’s a style for you.
With a cascade of large twists falling to the side of the hair like a waterfall, its no wonder how it got its name.
Whether it lasts for more than a day depends on hair texture, thickness and length, and how well the child can keep it during the nights with a head wrap on. My daughter is very responsible so she makes sure her head wrap stays on during the night. Don’t ask me how, she’s not the greatest sleeper…hahaha!
Doing this style is as simple as 1, 2, 3, 4. Once you have decided you know which side of the head you want the style to fall;
- part the hair initially with the tail of the comb to get the outline, then using the other-side of the comb, neaten your partitions. The neater the better it will look, then loosely band each bunch.
- Using a strong hair band, properly secure it to the base of each bunch.
- Do large twists on the end of each bunch.
- Pin into place…..and…….
Tadaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!! hairstyle complete, so simple. I do not use any gel or sprays, just head wraps, but you’re more than welcome to and it may even help keep it in longer.
In all honesty, I banded the hair too tight and by the end of the day, my daughter was complaining and then took it out….lesson learned and a tip for you. Make sure when your banding, that its secure enough, but don’t make it too tight, otherwise your child may complain and take it out like mine did..lol! And it looked so good on her too, well! next time ey?
Enjoy your day out, i’m sure there’ll be smiles all around.
Laptop issue resolved now…whew!!!!
So starting off again with another beautiful updo for a special occasion (church, wedding, party, christening etc), this gorgeous hairstyle was accomplished using a previous technique of a part’n’twist hairstyle (please re-visit for reminder), designed upwards.
The style was finished using a bow to the back of the head, because I absolutely love a bow in the hair. I might endevour to change it one day in the future cos change can be a good thing..haha! However, any hair accessory will work on these up-do’s (flower’s, ribbon’s, clips etc), and you can place them to the front, side or back as I have done. Alternatively, you do not have to add one at all, but you may find it gives a beautiful finish to the style.
The bun was tucked in just using my hands to roll the twists forward and using a hair grip to keep it in place, very simple.
Once again the fringe can be adapted to work with the shape of your child’s face. I decided to give my daughter a front facing single twisted fringe as she’s always wanted one (a little treat for her and she loved it).
This style turned out much better than I had anticipated and I’m so pleased with it, my daughter looked awesome in it, and I’m sure you will find your child will look awesome in the style too.
This hairstyle was based purely on inspiration. A huge thumbs up to it’s creator.
It’s such a beautiful hairstyle which ended up being done for a special occasion. The simple mirror reflection of both front and back makes this hairstyle very classy for any special occasion.
Once again the ends of my daughters hair has been finished with twists to give it a fuller look.
This hairstyle, I believe can be done on any face or head shape and will suit all hair types. There may need to be some length to the hair in order to get the fluid grip of the hair at the top, however I believe it could be adapted to work on even the shorter types of hair lengths with extremely long hair needing to be wrapped in a bun to still permit that neat look at the top.
Quite a few variations of this style could be created from this look, and maybe some time in the future (when I begin to run out of hairstyle ideas..lol!) I will do a variation of this hairstyle to give ideas to those who may want it.
Overall, I love this hairstyle.
