Natural Hair Updo: Twisted Cinnabuns with Cornrows


We have been loving updo's over here lately! Can you tell?  Miss A will be attending her Aunt's work event this weekend so I decided to give her a style to fit the occasion. This style is perfect for both little and big girls. Great for holidays, formal events or just to feel like a princess! 

As always, I washed, detangled, moisturized (with Bee Mine Luscious Moisturizer) and banded Miss A's hair. For full washing instructions click here.

I removed the bands once her hair was almost dry, just slightly damp. I began by parting the hair from ear to ear and tying the top section off. I started working on the back section at the nape of the neck, cornrowing from the right into the middle and from the left into the middle until I was done with the back. I used Bee Mine Curly Butter on each cornrow. 

Once I got to the top I parted a fairly large section in the middle and tied it off. I added a few cornrows to the side sections going up into the middle of her head. Once those cornrows were complete I gathered a large section of hair in the front, tied it off with a ponytail holder and did a loose two strand twist. Once the twist was in I began to create the cinnabun. I simply wrapped the twist around the ponytail holder, making sure it laid flat the entire time. Once the twist was wrapped around into a cinnabun, I placed 1 or 2 bobbypins flat, straight through the cinnabun. I continued this process until she had 5 twisted cinnabuns. I added some cute flower clips I bought from Claire's and there you have it, a beautiful natural updo!
