I've been wanting to do another type of pompadour hairstyle for a while, but I couldn't seem to find the right inspiration.
Well, anyway, I started cornrowing last night without any real style in mind when this 'do happened!
I LOVE how this turned out and I'm STOKED to be sharing this tutorial with each and every one of you!
Love, Love, Love!
For braiding the hair you’ll need:
All Mature & Lovely!
The first thing I did was part out a large circle section at the top of her head. This is where the "bump" part goes, so make it as large or as small as you'd like!
After that, I parted the rest of her hair in half, clipped the left side out of the way and started cornrowing the right side. I started at the nape of her neck, making the cornrows go in towards that center part, then switching to a two strand twist when I ran out of room to cornrow.
I continued cornrowing the right side untill I was finished. I did not use rubber bands at all (I try to limit the use of beads/rubber bands/etc. when possible so I don't have to worry about breakage), but you can use them if you prefer!
Once I was finished with the right side, I switched over to the left side and started cornrowing. I did the same simple design on both sides. You can do fancy cornrows if you want, I decided not to because I didn't want to cornrows to distract from the fancy pompadour!
Once all the cornrows and twists were finished, I Dutch braided (e.i. I cornrowed) the hair up towards the top and rolled and pinned until I was satisfied with the finished look!
And that was it!
I have been getting a lot of requests for more detailed posts, so I really hope you all enjoyed this one!
