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)
