Hairstyles With Braids

For those of you who’ve been requesting cute easy hairstyles with braids, this one is for you!

 This style has an extremely simple cornrow hair designs in the front with Bunny’s signature two strand twist hairstyle in the back!

Always, I wanna say that I used a brand NEW (for us, anyway) which will remain nameless for now, but be on the lookout for that product review very shortly! 

For braiding the hair you’ll need:

As always, I started with clean, detangled, stretched hair.

Alright, so the first thing that I did was part a side part in Bunny’s hair, and then parted out a two inch section running away from that side part.

I then parted that in half the long way and changed it into two different cornrows. Once I ran out of room to make the braids stick to her head, I changed it into one thicker braid and clipped it back behind her ear.

Lastly, I began doing her two strand twists. Bunny is quite famous for her chunky, kinky twists, but I decided to do slightly smaller hair twists for a change.

I hope that’ll last a little longer and the twist out will be as epic!

Thanks so much for reading <3

How do you spruce up your twist hairstyle? Let us know below!

Twist Hairstyle

Here's a quick update on Bunny's minis/twist hairstyle.

For those of you who missed it, I talking about how I turned her curls into mini two strand twists.

You can check out that post right here.

Anyway, her hair twists have been in for ten days, and they're still going strong!

A little fuzz here and there but nothing serious. Yet. She's pretty hard on her hair so it's only a matter of time before this 'do has to come down!

Now, on to that hairstyle!

Each day I spritz her hair with a mixture of two parts water, one part aloe vera gel, and then a apply a water-based moisturizer on top of that.

Lately I've been using a lot of Mixed Chicks products in her hair, but only time will tell if I stick with those products.

My true love for the longest time has been Queen Helene Royal Curl products so Mixed Chicks has a lot to live up to lol!

I plan on taking her minis down soon so I can do a cute little Easter hairstyle!

Stay turned for that!

Two Strand Twists

For those of you who don’t follow our Natural-hair-care-info.com website, I recently put Bunny’s hair into mini two strand twists!

She has gotten SOOOO complements on them!

They didn’t take that long, they’re aging beautifully, and they really seem to fit her personality!

And for the record, my fingers were tingling for about two days!

Worth it, of course =)


Also, I got quite a few emails (you can contact us on our Facebook Page or through our email address: naturalhaircareinfo at gmail dot com) about the whole process, so I wanna answer those here so everyone who'd like to learn, can learn!

Did you blow dry her hair?
No, I put it into twelve Ghana Plaits three days prior to the actual twisting process began.

Did you straighten it?
Nope, see above.

What products did you use?
Washed: Mixed Chicks Sulfte Free Shampoo
DC'ed: Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner for Hair
Conditioned: Mixed Chicks Leave In Conditioner
Moisturized: Beija Flor Naturals Cream Brulee

Will you trim her twists?
Yes, I trimmed her hair twists the day after I finished. I took about an inch off of the bottom =)

How long will they last?
I will *make* them last at least a month!

How long did they take?
I twisted her hair over the course of three days, devoting two hours a day to her hair for a total of about six hours, give or take.

How long has she been natural?
Since the day she was born =)

Is that all of her hair or did you add yarn/extensions/weave/etc?
Yes! Every single strand is hers!

How will you maintain them?
This is about day 4 and I haven't done much with them. Those Mixed Chicks products are the bomb! Her hair still feels soft and moisturized. I did, however, pull of her twists up into a hair bun for her gym class but that was it!

Her hair in Ghana Braids
Each day I took down four braids (one braid at a time, of course) and changed it into several dozen mini twists

I parted on an angle

And then I changed each little part into four mini two strand twists

The process was very simple! We will definitely be doing these minis in the near future! Also, I will post different hair styles that we do on them as well as updates! Thanks for reading!

Let us know what you think below!!!

Hairstyles for School

More quick and easy hairstyles for school!

I was inspired to do this twist hairstyle after Jessica B. contacted me and told me that she was searching for quick cute school hairstyles for her young daughter.

I usually spend two hours cornrowing Bunny’s hair a week, however, this hairstyle only took an hour plus one break in the middle.

I doubt it will last as long as any of my cornrow hair designs do, but it’s quick and super cute!

Which makes it a great hairstyle for those school days!

My little sister’s cute twist hairstyle!

For braiding the hair you’ll need:

As always, I started with clean, detangled, stretched hair.

A picture from the top

When I say this hair style was super simple, I mean just that.

Using a rat tail comb, I parted out a box in the front and tied the rest of her hair out of the way. Using the box I’d just parted out, I began cornrowing her hair to the side.

A back view

Once I ran out of room for the cornrows to stick to her head, I tied it off with a rubber band and two strand twisted her hair to the end. I did this until I was all out of hair to cornrow and I did twists everywhere else.

TIP! You can do box braids or rope twists where I did regular two strand twists if you’d like. It’s completely up you. Just remember that box braids take longer to take out and rope twists tend to lock up if you forget to moisturize them or leave them in too long.

Lastly, a close up of her cornrows!

Each day we’ll change it up a bit with different hair ribbons, hair flowers, or hair bows.

This is an easy hairstyle that’ll last a week.

And don’t be afraid to do “simple styles”. They can be just as cute!

Thanks for reading!
