Black And Blue Hair

Bunny surprised this morning by saying she wanted black and blue hair.

I just looked at her and was like “O-K” until she clarified that she wanted lots of blue beads to match with her black hair. Yeah so that made a lot more sense. Here’s what I came up with.

This was a quick twenty minute style that only has to last four days until I do a braided Mohawk for Labor Day on her.

(In case you haven’t noticed, she loves every Mohawk hairstyle I’ve ever done).

TIP! I started with clean, detangled, stretched hair and I recommend this for best results. Click here to learn how I prepare hair for my cornrow hairstyles.

For braiding the hair you’ll need:

I began by parting her hair in half, from the top of her head to the nape of her neck, then parted her hair again from one ear to the other for a total of four different parts.

I went over each part with a little peanut oil so they’d look neat and fresh, but this part is optional.

After that, I clipped three of the four parts out of the way and started parting and braiding her hair to the end.

It’s a very easy and fast style, so I recommend this one for school hairstyles or styles that only need to last a matter of days. Lastly, I did two tiny buns in the front.

You can do rope twists or two strand twists instead of braids if you’d like.

You could also use knockers or barrettes instead of beads; it’s completely up to you!

Overall, this is one of my favorite African American kid’s hairstyles yet just because it’s a bit out of the ordinary and super cute.

She loves her black and blue hair!

I really enjoy doing African American childrens hairstyles because of all the beads, which I love.
