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!).
