Side Cornrows With Braid-out- Natural Hair


She came up with this pose, lol! What you don’t know is everytime we’re done taking pictures of a style we goof off and have a “fashion photo shoot”. This is one of her many poses.

She had 8 braids in with flexi-rods on the ends for the braid out.


    • A’s hair was stretched out from wearing her hair in two braids for a few days. I used Bee Mine Luscious Moisturizer to gently “dry” (I put that in quotations because I load her hair up with the luscious moisturizer, lol) detangle her hair. First I used my fingers, then the modified Denman D3 brush.


    • After her hair was completely detangled I started parting a small section of hair near her right ear all the way to her left ear. I cornrowed that section then began randomly parting up and down. I didn’t have anything in particular in mind, I was just going with the flow. Any design will work. I’m not very skilled with zig zags and such but I think that would be a nice touch.


    • After cornrowing about half of the right side of her hair I stopped and started parting medium sections of her hair to braid. This was for the braid out. I added flexi-rods on the end of each braid (8 total) and we were done!


  • I took the flexi-rods and large braids out in the morning, fluffed her roots with a comb and she was good to go. 🙂

Note: This style took about 1.5 hours. I used Bee Mine Luscious Moisturizer and Curly Butter (You can use code BBBJF11 to receive 10% off their products!).

    Mama, I'm so impressed and proud of the fact that you truly to the time to learn about your daughter A's hair texture and doing something beautiful with it. You put many black women to shame for what we've done to our daughters' hair and for that matter our own hairs. Just goes to show what can happen when one is determined!

    I must say this for her "the mother" to not be African American, she is doing a wonderful job of creating such beautiful hairstyles on her daughter. To bad you're not in the GA area, or I might have to see if you might be willing to do my hair for me….lol… I don't have any kid myself, but I do have a niece that I would love to try some of this style. But would she let me hold her still long enough to do it, she's only 4yrs…

    She is cute and the hairstyle is adorable. I' am curious too, how would that look on an adult?
