zigThere isn’t any one way to do this, or any wrong way; it’s all in the way you part the hair.

I highly recommend using a rat-tail comb and starting with freshly detangled hair for picture perfect parts.

zigYou can make these braids up into a ponytail, into several ponytails, into a braided Mohawk, or anything else you can think of.
zigRemember that buns and updos are great for protective hairstyles!

You can add a bit of spice to a child’s hairstyle by adding beads halfway through the braids or at the ends of the braids, or by tying several back with a bow.

Some things to keep in mind when cornrowing is to add in the same amount of hair each time, keep the cornrows thin and neat, and just have fun and make the hairstyle look! Before you start making this hairstyle your look, make sure to moisturize your hair with these awesome products for hair care.

I guess I should have started this off by mentioning that there really is no limit to what you can do!
