As requested: easy hairstyles for long hair.
Alrightly, so I’ve always been intrigued by the many different African braid styles that I’ve seen over the years so I thought I might just try one.
Take note that I am not African and this style may or may not be African (or Ethiopian).
I’m not a hundred percent sure but I did try and I do like the results!
Cornrows & Rope Twists
For braiding the hair you’ll need:
Doesn’t she just look thrilled lol!
The first thing that I did was part Bunny’s hair in half, from one ear all the way across her head to the other ear.
After I’d done that, I clipped the top half out of the way for the time being and began doing medium sized rope twists. If you don’t know how to braid rope twists, click here for rope braiding instructions.
Next, it was time for the special cornrows! This was my very first time doing these, so I decided on a very simple, large cornrow pattern. Look below for picture:
Top from left to right: I first parted out the section that I wanted to cornrow: then I parted out thin sections on either side and did a chunky cornrow down the middle.
Bottom from left to right: Next, I grabbed the thin sections and cornrowed OVER the chunky cornrow: Lastly, I tied the cornrow off with a pink rubber band =)
Hopefully that helps you figure out how I did this style. It was super easy and will last her about a week.
My only regret is that I had to do sister twists/rope twists instead of my beloved two strands twists =(.
With all the swimming that B has been doing lately, two strands just wouldn’t cut it.
Anyway, welcome to all the new subs and thank you so much for following our site!
