To start this style we stretched Jordyn’s hair the previous night by using the banded method.

The following products were used:

as well as Creme of Nature’s Argan Oil Perfect Edges for Jordyn’s edges.

First make a middle part (horizontally) from ear to ear. Tie up the top section and start work on the bottom half of the head first. Make a zig zag part going down the middle of the head. Next start at the bottom of the head, near the nape of the neck and make two cornrows going up toward the top middle section of the head.

Now it’s time to start work on the front section of hair. First take a small section of hair in the front of the head and bobby pin that away for now. Next take the two cornrow braids you made and criss cross them over each other. Then add them to the top section of remaining loose hair and create a big fluffy bun.

For the front section that you bobby pinned, make one big fluffy twist. Decide which side you want to wear it on and pin the twist underneath the bun.

The total time for styling was around 20 minutes and this style lasted us for a week. To secure the style at night tie the hair down with a satin scarf.


Thanks for reading! 🙂
