Two Buns: Hairstyle on Natural Hair

Hey Guys! I tried to get my creative juices flowing when I sat down to do Jordyn's hair. I was looking for something quick and easy but also a style that would last for a few days, and this is what I came up with! I started off by sectioning her hair in half horizontally from ear to ear. Next I started working on the back half of her head. I made three more horizontal parts and connected each of the ponytails together going upwards. When I got to the crown area of her head I split the hair from the last ponytail in half. Now it's time to work on the front section. I created a zig zag part going vertically to make two sections of hair. Then I made the two buns in front of her head with the two sections of hair.

Total Style Time: 20-30 minutes Products: Cantu … [Read more...]
