I’ve done many female braided hairstyles, so how about some braids for men now?
Two of my younger brothers, Wesley on the left and Isaiah on the right, decided they wanted to grow their hair out so they could get cornrows.
Meaning I will be posting their styles as well!
Seeing as their hair is much shorter, I don’t always braid it because it takes a while.
Wish me luck as I take over this challenge!
It’s been about three months, maybe a little less, since they’ve stopped cutting their hair.
They both have between one and one and a half inches of new growth so it’s still very hard to cornrow their hair until it gets a little longer.
The first couple of times I did their hair it looked absolutely terrible (which is why you never saw them lol), but I’ve gotten more experience with such short hair and they’ve gotten better at holding still.
They love the cornrow designs and not so much the straight back cornrows so that’s what I’ve been doing these last two or three weeks, even though they’re harder.
The hardest thing is keeping their hair moisturized because I have never seen a male moisturizer in the stores.
We use a lot of water but their hair is never as soft as mine or Bunny’s. And using a female moisturizer is out of the question because they tend to smell like fruit and flowers.
2. Distract. Regardless of age, keeping the person still is key for neat braids. The TV, a game console, the computer, ANYTHING that will make them hold still.
4. Take breaks as needed. Get up and stretch, use the bathroom, or grab a quick drink or a snack every hour or so. Maybe more if you’re working with really little ones.
Don’t forget to “like” if you enjoyed!
