Freestyle Beaded hairstyle...not sure I like it.

You have probably noticed that we do not do a lot of beaded styles in my home. I used to, then I realized the damage that beads do to those sensitive ends, so not we limit beaded styles for right before trims only. The ends are dead and about to be cut off anyway, so I figure they will do the least damage at this time. If you remember from the quick and easy corn row style The Princess sported over Christmas break, I noted that it is time for a trim. With that in mind, we decided that she will rock beads this week. I freestyled the style, (as usual) and this is what we ended up with:

The bottom half of this style consists of two rows of straight corn rows, braided down and beaded. The top half?! Not sure I like it. That's what happens sometimes when you freestyle; you never know what you are going to get, and sometimes its great, sometimes not so great. The Princess likes her hair, so I guess that's what really matters. It's not that I HATE it, I'm just not so sure. But its in, its done, we won't have to fuss with her hair for the week, so its staying. :) (Oh, and please excuse the dried pancake batter on my child's shirt. She helped make breakfast this morning, and somehow that happened. And somehow the camera picked it up when I did not notice it. I hate when that happens. )

Of course, hair was washed and conditioned before braiding. I used It's Perfectly Natural's Basil and Lemongrass Coil Glaze for hold.

Have you ever freestyled braids, or any hair style, and didn't like the results?


  1. Hair looks healthy and neat, great job.

  2. I love the style, front and all! Looks absolutely great!

  3. I like it very creative, and I didn't even notice the pancake batter until you said something LOL

  4. i like this style a lot! very cute =)
