Half Up with Cornrows and Twists
For this style, I parted Syd's hair from ear to ear so I could work with just the front part of her hair. I made a center part and then started parting and cornrowing down each side, with my parts moving out to a subtle point and then back toward the center. When I completed both sides, I pulled the cornrows back and secured them with an ouchless band. The cornrows were only braided until they reached the ouchless band.
I then put the hair coming from the ponytail into 2 strand twists. I also twisted the remaining hair at the back of her head. Usually when we have styles similar to this one, the twists get removed for a twist out after a few days. I have no doubt that will happen again this time, as Syd loves wearing her hair out.
