Ally's fauxhawk

Isn't it funny how you can do the same style 50 times, and it will come out looking 43 different ways? Maybe its just me because I freestyle just about everything, but this is especially true when it comes to Ally's favorite style....the faux hawk.

So, here is how I got this style:

 I started on freshly washed, detangled and conditioned hair, after a protein treatment. First, I parted her hair from ear to ear
Next, I began corn braiding the parted portion of her hair and securing them with rubber bands.

Then I parted the remaining hair down the middle.

And I free styled the braids toward the center.

The finished result: Check out that shine! No, that is not just the flash..the protein treatment really did her hair a world of good.

And my tween was not being very cooperative today. Since I didn't want to post a bunch of pictures of her with her faced scrunched up and tongue out, this is the best we got. But she didn't mind taking a picture with her little sister (the dog)


  1. her hair looks so healthy :) Cute braids :)

  2. This is gorgeous!!! GREAT braids too!!! Love this!!!!

    Beautiful baby too!


  3. Soo pretty!!! What protein treatment did you do? She has a beautiful face and her eyes!

  4. Thank you Amanda. I used a homemade mixture of 2 eggs, a quarter cup of olive oil, and 2 yeaspoons of lemon juice. I left it on for 25 minutes, rinsed it with cold water, then washed as usual.
