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 part cornrow, part twisted hairstyle can work for any occasion. With added bows or accessories this can look awesome for special occasions, however left as it is, it can make a great casual or school style for your child.
I wanted to try an alternate style to the common two cornrows (side to side) that is normally done on kids hair as a quick night time or very casual hairstyle. And even with that in mind that very common cornrow style can be made to look exquisite when the time calls for it.
So with that style in mind, I decided to do an upgrade (if I may call it that) to the hairstyle. It does take a little bit more time, but it is still fairly simple to accomplish. I have used elastic band to catch the hair, however this is not what I always do. Normally I use black hairbands, but I had run low and did not have enough.
TIP:-Please be very careful when using elastic bands, as the removal of it (if not done with care) can damage hair.
-Use hairbands where possible, especially with kids having fine or woolly hair-strands.
Once again the twisted finish gives it a slightly more elegant look, however this is personal preference as mentioned in my other posts (please feel free to browse through them). But i’m sure it can look just as great if a plaited look is preferred as a finish, and may compliment the small cornrows added for effect. The contrast of cornrow and twists however,
does work very well as is demonstrated with this hairstyle.
Overall, I think it looks great and I hope you enjoy this style on your child.
