braided rope

I had a duh moment with this. I had my camera sitting next to me & forgot to take pictures - so sorry about the no step by step instructions. You get the after effect.
I started by parting the hair off to the side (a little further than I normally would) then part back to the ear bo make like a box. Twist braid her hair until all hair is included. If you can't remember - you start at the top with 2 strands. You brush the rest of the hair forward (or whatever way you are grabbing the hair from) Start by twisting once & the next time you twist, you grab from the section that is pulled forward. Now, twist again & grab. Going all the way down. Once I got where there is no more hair to grab, I corkscrew twist to the bottom - going as far down as possible.
Add a side pony. Then wrap the twist around it, securing with an elastic & hide it as best you can.

front view: this worked great with long hair but if you have a girlie with short, don't do a side pony, keep half of the hair down & try it.

Locs & Love



This is a gorgeous natural style by Thierry Baptiste.

slanted frenchbraid

If you know how to inside-out french braid, this is a must. So, so easy & just a little twist (or slant:) to make it not look like your traditional french braid.
Start the braid on either side of the head.
Begin inside-out french braiding down the head - making sure it stays on a slant. Pretty hard not to at this point.
Add elastic to secure braid.
Wrap hair around the base of the braid. I secured with an elastic & covered it as much as possible with hair. This seems to hold the best. I also spray it with hairspray as I wrap.
Curl the pony & add a cute bow.

***For those of you who have asked what I put in her hair??? NOTHING!! Honestly. I do her hair when it is damp & only use a tail comb. Spray it with hair spray & use the comb again to smooth everything out. So I guess not nothing - only hairspray. Now - if I am keeping it down we use the Garnier Fructise Curling Gel whether I'm curling it or not. It's just a great scultping gel. I think everyone thinks you need to add all this product but the secret is do it while it's wet. It holds all day & we don't get many flyaways. Especially if I spray it & then comb back again.
