Braided Twist | Protective Style

Lately it has been unusually cold here in So Cal so I wanted to give Jordyn a cute protective style and this popped into my head.

I started with the take down of a previous hair style and we started out with her hair looking like this.

Braided Twist: Protective Style

Next I sectioned the hair in three sections

Two sections in the back and one half in the front. I then made three cornrows on each side to meet in the middle of the two back sections of hair and then freestyled the cornrows on the top half of the head to all meet towards the middle.

I rubber band the 2 ponytails at a time together and then two strand twisted each ponytail

I could have left it like this for a mohawk do’ but I opted to make little rosettes out of the twists and pinned them with bobby pins

Jordyn said she will wear her hair like this for 5 days then she’ll wear it out like a mohawk. (I guess she told me huh?)

Anyhoo I used Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Coconut Oil and water from my spray bottle to get this look
