By Aisha of Braid with Me
We're back with a new style!! It has been such a long time since our last post. Anisa is now a 4th grader!! Where has time gone?? My baby is growing up!
For this style, I started with hair that was previously styled in several two-strand twist ponytails. I sectioned her hair into four sections, two on each side of her head. Next, I began parting and braiding her hair in a fish bone style.
Sections A and D were cornrowed straight to the back. I began cornrowing Section B but stopped at the midway point. I began Section C the same way as Section B and continued it with the remaining hair from Section B. This section is labeled as Section B2 in the following picture. The remaining hair from Section C was cornrowed separately to form Section C2.
This style can be worn straight to the back or to the side. You also have the option to pin it up into a cute bun.
How long did it take? I did not complete this style in one sitting. I began braiding and took several breaks.
How long will this style last? This style should last for awhile with proper care. However, she has school pictures coming up soon so she will get a new style.
What will you do to preserve this style? Anisa will protect her hair each night with a satin bonnet. I will also moisturize her hair with a water and olive oil mixture that I have in a spray bottle. I will also use the As I Am Leave-In Conditioner as needed.
If you're not familiar with fish bone cornrows, check out this tutorial that we did when Anisa was only 6 years old. She is really growing up! It's sad, but I am blessed to be able to experience this with her.
Let us know what you think about this style by leaving a comment below. Also, is there a style that you would like for me to recreate or try? Let us know. I'm always open to new ideas!
