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.


  1. I love this! Very cute!

  2. Wha a cute and elegant style for a lovely young lady!! I love your angled diamond shaped parts *_* Gives a cute flair. <3

  3. OMG her twists look amazing!!!

  4. Do you band her hair before most styles? and what products do u use?I'm curious bcs this is similar to the style my daughters currently wearing and I'm always on the look out for a better product that will make my job easier, right now I'm using Shea Moisture curl&style milk and the shine mist

  5. Love it!!!

    I'm curious...are those two strand twists or rope twists?

  6. PuddinCake, sometimes her hair is banded, sometimes I stretch it a little with 2 cornrows or a few thick braids, and sometimes I just style it immediately after it is washed and detangled. It all depends on my mood and how much time we have. I use a variety of products, too. This time her hair was done right after being washed and I used Shea Moisture products.

    Revjenn, they're two strand twists. I do those more often than rope twists because we like the twist out better and almost all her styles with twists end up in twist outs. :)
