Criss Cross Braids!

Today I will show you how to do crisscross french braids as shown above. Please excuse the cornrows "the doll" refuses to take them out. You can do this style the same way without them.
First Part the hair down the middle.
Next separate half the hair in two again with the part ending at the ear as shown below.
Secure the top section in a temporary bun, then part the other side.
Now put the bottom section in a temporary bun.
Next take the top section and start french braid normally.
When you run out of hair braid normally for a few inches until you reach the other side of the head. As shown below.
Next take a piece of hair next to the ear and start french braiding again.
French braid that section normally and finish the braid normally.

Next take out the buns. Then start french braiding the top section like before. when you run out of hair, do the same thing as before, braid a few pieces and cross it to the other side.
Then take a section of hair by the ear and add it to the braid then french braid and finish normally.
I finished the style with little poofs on the ends but you could tie them normally too. When your all done, you have a cute style that a lot of people will notice, and all you did was french braid.

French braid from cornrows!

This hairstyle was made with cornrows from the Bahamas, but i will do a post about how to o cornrows at home when she takes hers off. So in this style I am only using the hair coming out of the cornrows.
So start with the middle pieces and just start braiding like a french braid. But then when you add the next piece of hair for the french braid take from the next cornrow, as shown below.
Now just keep braiding own taking the hair from each cornrow.
When you run out of hair from the cornrows just simply braid the rest like normal.

Then you have cute cornrows in the front with a cute french braid in the back!

Bahama Braids!

Hey everyone sorry I haven't posted in a while but, I just got back from a cruise. The doll and I both got our hair done in a bunch of cornrows. I got 15 and the doll got 17! They looked amazing. But unfournetly I had to take mine out because I got a major headache from them. The doll still has them in and I will upload pictures to show you how they look. But keep in mind that she will have these in for a while and I will have to hairstyles with them in. If I van I will show you how to make these cornrows but really they are just mini Dutch braids the the crown of the head. Very simple. The ladies doing the hair were so fast. Their fingers moved like crazy when braid they did all of them in like 15 min. Thats like a minute per Dutch braid they were crazy fast! I wish I have a video of them doing it.
So check out the pics below! =]
