Cornrow Ponytail, Sydney Style

Before I begin, let me say that my camera is broken. The pictures on this post were taken with my phone (thank goodness cell phone cameras have come so far!), so I apologize for the lack of quality. But hey....these are a lot better than nothing, right? 

Sydney has decided that she really likes to have some hair hanging down by her face. So when she requested hair by her face, I decided to grant her wish and alter one of her staple styles (cornrows into a ponytail).

I began by parting out the left 3/4 of the front of her hair. I made 5 cornrows going straight across to the left so they would be hanging down on one side of her face only.

Pardon the bulky coat in the picture. I realized right as she was walking out the door that I hadn't taken  a picture of the top. LOL!
Then I worked my way around the rest of her head, cornrowing toward the center of the back of her head. I pulled the cornrows into a ponytail and we were done. Easy Peasy!


  1. beautiful :) i really like that!

  2. Are the cornrows all free at the bottom or did you end them with beads/barrettes/etc? It's beautiful! My daughter is only 2 1/2, but I dream of her hair looking like this someday! Your daughter's hair looks like a looser texture than my little one's though. My daughter's hair is 4B. How about yours?

  3. Robin, the cornrows are all free at the ends. I rarely add anything to the ends of her braids.

    Syd has multiple hair types on her head, with most of it falling in the 3C - 4A range.
