Copycat Style!!!

Pin It
Hey all!!

So for the September Hair Carnival, I was paired up with fellow blogger AllThingsCuteandGirly to copy one of her MANY beautiful hairstyles that she has produced!!

So, I chose this one: http://allthingscuteandgirly.blogspot.com/2011/05/protective-style-challenge.html

Now, with different hair textures and hair lengths coming into play, I decided to switch it up just a bit in order for Choca to get the most out of her style, without looking crazy, while paying homage to the beautiful style linked above!!

So, I put my spin on the front of Choca's hair... I consider the style I copied to have a 'braided headband' of sorts, so I gave Choca just that! I gave her a thin cornrow across the front.  I then gave her 12 twists back, and braided them all together.

I then sectioned the back part of her hair into three sections.  On the two sides, I cornrowed them INWARDS and twisted the loose hair.  I then twisted the center area in order to give it a faux hawk look in the back.

The results:

Braided headband

Left Side View

Right Side View

Back View

Adorned with a flower!

She loves it!! 
I love this style!! Truly!!!

Posin' up... 

My favorite!

With Princess T!! :)
