Freestyle star with crossover cornrows, and star beads

Li'l Bit and I picked up new large-hole star beads from a new beauty supply store near our home. I just couldn't wait to use them, so I decided to incorporate them into a style I was dying to try on The Princess. I gathered inspiration for this style after seeing this hairstyle on I thought it was all too cute, and decided to put my own spin on it by crisscross cornrowing the entire head into a star-like pattern and adding my cool new star beads. Next time, I will actually part the star pattern into her head at the beginning and go from there; I freestlyed it this time and to me, it could look more like a star. :)

Products used:

 olive oil for prewashing.
David Babaii for Wildaid sulfate fre shampoo
Herbal Essense's Hello Hydration conditioner
Shea Moisture's curl and Style milk as a leave-in
Ion's Inspired by nature nourishing oil treatment as a sealant
Shea Moisture's Curl Enhancing Smoothie for hold


  1. How cute is this!?!?!? I love it!! Great style!


  2. This is sooo cute!!! Do you use all the product on each braid or do you just coat the hair with each product then begin? Sounds like a silly question but I always wonder how each person does it!!

  3. Thank you all so much!
    @Amanda...I separate the hair into sections and complete the conditioning this case, adding the hair milk then the oil to each section. THEN I begin styling the hair, and I apply the product that I am using for hold to each section as I style.:)

  4. Thanks Elizabeth! (elizabeth is mine and my oldest daughters middle name). Sometimes I am too light handed with products and their hair just frizzes out or dries out. I need to remember to add moisturizer seal then a styling product.
