For the September Hair Carnival, I have decided to recreate the lacing style I saw on the blog Goldilocks*n*Me. I did have to alter the style a bit by using a twist out where Goldilocks had worn a wash and go style.
I kind of cheated to start this style because Syd had previously worn her hair in basic two strand twists. When I sat down in the evening to style Syd's hair, I kept those twists and just parted out a section on one side of the front of her hair. I put that section of hair into 2 cornrows going toward her crown. I secured the 2 cornrows together with a green rubber band.
I twisted the hair coming out of the rubber band in about three 2 strand twists.
Then I removed a few twists in the front of her hair on the other side and changed them into a couple of chunky flat twists, simply because twist outs from flat twists lay closer to the scalp.
The rest of her hair was still in the 2 strand twists she had worn for a a few days before.
In the morning, I used a craft needle and a green and white ribbon to do the lacing part of the style. I literally just laced her two cornrows as though I was lacing up a pair of shoes.When I reached the green rubber band, I tied the two ends of the ribbon in a bow.
I removed all the twists so the majority of Syd's hair was worn in a twist out.

Syd loves the lacing style. She wants to start doing them on the days she has cross country meets because the style looks so much like a laced up pair of running shoes. I think that's definitely doable.
Thanks so much to Goldilocks*n*Me for inspiring this style!
