|A little late, but Happy New Year from Syd and friends!|
I decided on cornrows for the trip since they could easily survive a 15 hour drive without frizz or tangles. I gave her a braided hair headband by putting 2 cornrows all the way around her hairline. They met at the nape of her neck. Then I put the remaining hair into 6 cornrows going straight down. To spruce up the cornrows while they were in, we pulled them into a low ponytail and added a giant flower, but I forgot to take a picture of that. Oops!
When New Year's Eve rolled around, I removed the 6 cornrows that went straight back and left the 2 that formed the braided headband. Cornrow removal only took a few minutes and the result was a braid out that looked great for NYE.
|In this picture, you can still see the parts from where the cornrows were. Just a little fluffing of the roots with my fingers took care of that.|
Random sidenote: It's tons of fun to tickle your kid while taking pictures. =]
