Greetings, everyone! I wanted to share a short video of a big chop I did earlier this week!
I had a client with natural hair that had been wearing sew-ins and for a while and had damaged parts of her hair from using flat irons. She wanted all the damage gone and the rest of her hair cut to an even length. We followed that with feed-in braids to give her a low maintenance style while growing re-growing her hair.
Greetings, Blossoms! I have been doing a little running around lately and have missed you all! I am back with some new info and hair pictures!
This summer, this elegant cornrowed updo has been quite a popular request! Cornrowing and flat twisting are some of my favorite styles to execute so I always look forward to doing this type of style!
This style was cornrowed and 2 packs of X-pression kanekalon hair (color #30) was used for the bun up top! The hair was twisted and pinned to create the look.
This bun was done with 2 packs of X-pression kanekalon braiding hair (#1B). The hair was loosely braided and pinned at the crown to create this look.
This cornrowed updo used 2 packs of X-pression braiding hair (color #33) above. The hair was braided into small braids and pinned up.
This type of style can last 2-3 weeks. I typically only wear this style for about 5-7 days because I absolutely HAVE to cleanse my scalp by then. The look is maintained by applying a light oil to the scalp as needed and tying the hair up while sleeping or during any activity like working out.
I enjoyed doing this style! Many people who sit in my chair knows that I enjoy doing cornrows a lot! I was looking forward to doing this style and was excited about the outcome!
This style can be worn for 1 to 3 weeks depending on your preferences. Simply wrap it up when you are going to sleep or showering to keep it from frizzing and you are good to go! Want a look like this? Contact me at email@example.com or book me at http://www.styleseat.com/melissaotoo!
Hello, Lovelies! Check out this kids cornrow style I did yesterday!
I started off by shampooing and conditioning her hair with Hair Garden’s Cleanser and Mango Punch Conditioner. I applied the avocado shea leave-in to her towel blotted hair and blow dried it out. I trimmed her ends as well before we began the braiding process.
I used my favorite braiding hair, X-pressions, to braid her hair. I prepped her by sectioning her hair into the 4 sections I intended on braiding.
I rolled the ends of the braids into perm rods and dipped them in hot water. She has a lovely cornrow style that can last 2-3 weeks with proper maintenance!
