Side Cornrows Into Ponies

This style was actually inspired by yesterday's Curly Friend, Jerrica.  I love the faux hawk look and I was in the mood to do cornrows!

As you can probably tell, this looks a little different than a faux hawk normally would.  This is because half way through the style, C reminded me that today was favorite hat day at school! I planned on a low side pony so curls could show under the hat, but since I didn't want to undo all my work, I decided that I would do something a little different...

The first ponytail (in front) was planned.  I love to show off C's curls, so that was going to be a curly ponytail.
Her hair is a little messy in this pic because this was taken just before her bath and bedtime, plus she had gym today and also wore a hat!  :)
All I did was divided the left half of C's hair into 3 more sections and added ponies.  I left all of the hair from the ponies down.  As I said, she wore a hat today and I wanted the curls to show. 
I didn't get a pic of her in her hat because she wanted to take it off when she got home, but she looked so cute!  I'm hoping to talk her into putting it back on tomorrow for a quick photo, but I didn't want to wait to post this since I've been kind of quiet for a while.

C did one of her 'daughters' hair while I did hers  :)
She was so proud of it, how could I not show you?! <3

This style took me about an hour to do- I'm a slow braider for one thing, and I took a while debating if I should take the cornrows out and do my original style or leave them and come up with something else... Personally, I like my decision! :)
I used some leave in conditioner and lots of coconut oil to moisturize- C's hair is always super dry no matter what o_0  Then I used lots of Taliah Waajid Lock It Up Gel.  I've been using this a lot lately because I like the price and availability, and also I like how it holds styles and defines C's curls.  I'm trying to decide what to use next...
Well, I guess that's all I have to say about this!  I'm going to switch this up just a little in the morning, but before I do, I'll just have to get a pic of her in the little hat she wore today!  So you might want to stop by tomorrow and check it out!  Also, I got new hair accessories (which will be part of my 100 follower's giveaway) and I want to have some opinions as to what to do with them!  ;)

  1. This is such a cute style and it really compliments her curls! I love that she does her doll's hair because Baby O does the same thing!
