Hairstyle for Thick Curly Hair

I did another hairstyle for thick curly hair last night.

As you can clearly tell from the sloppy, crazy parts, I was a bit of a rush (I was tired and wanted to go to bed).

Bunny and I took her mini braids out – she did most of the work 🙂 – and I am VERY glad to say that’s over.

They lasted about twenty days before we both got sick of them.

They probably could have lasted another month but she wanted another style.

That plus the fact I kind of missed braiding.

Anyway, on to the hair!

For this style you’ll need:

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.

I did a thin row of box braids in the back for a total of nine braids back there. I beaded them all with clear beads because Bunny wanted beads.

TIP! Make sure you moisturizer the ends heavily before adding beads so you don’t end up with breakage.

Once I’d finished those, I started doing chubby cornrows (I prefer thin, small ones but I was rushing) wrapping around her hair towards the back, leaving the ends un-braided so I could pull that hair into a bun.

You can also see how I left pieces of hair out as I cornrowed, for a curtain of braids to hang down.

Here you can see that all the braids are finished and all the beads added.

The only thing left to do is pull the hair up into some type of hair bun.

I wanted to do a ballet bun, but it ended up being HUGE, so I split all the hair into three parts, braided them each for a total of three braids, then tucked and pinned them into a small-ish bun.

And lastly, another back view.

The whole style took a little over an hour and I will spray her hair with a light olive oil everyday after dampening it with some type of moisture.

And there’s another hairstyle for thick curly hair for ya!
