Curly Hairstyles For Kids

This was really easy & quick - the longest thing took curling, which took about 20 minutes for the entire hairdo. So once again, thinking about Easter, I wanted to do something a little more fancy that you probably wouldn’t normally do for school or in the week.

First, part your headband. I don’t have a picture, but I secured the two sides of the head band under the hair with an elastic to keep it as a headband. Otherwise, it would constantly be in her face, falling out. Then pull half of the hair up & don’t pull through all the way, leaving a small poof on her head

Curl her hair with this CURLING TECHNIQUE . It took about 15 minutes to curl her hair all over. We actually went to a park this day to fly kites (lots of running) & when we returned, her hair was still curly & still looked

We added some little clippies in the pony left over so it gave it some texture

You can’t see well in the picture, but we sprayed hair glitter all over in her hair just go give it that special occassion look - plus the glitter is her favorite thing so it’s fun to pull it out once in awhile. (i bought mine at walmart during halloween time - not sure if you are still able to buy it since it’s seasonal but check a hair supply store like Sally’s)

African Women Hair Braiding Styles

A lot of African Americans will adapt to hair braiding styles because it usually look pretty good and has become a lot more fashionable recently. With all the different hair braiding styles, it won’t be that hard for you to find something that you would like for your hair. There are various different types of hair braiding styles that work better for different people. From the huge list of hair braiding styles, there would be styles like Goddess braids, African twist, micro braids, inverted braids, candy curls, corn rows, bantu knots, fishtail braids, flat twist, silky locks, interlock weaving, corkscrew, invisible braids, and kinky twist – even with the large amount of hair braiding styles on this list, it is not even taking a damper into the large amount of hair braiding styles that you can choose from.

Most hair braiding styles will look fashionable, sensible, elegant, professional, sophisticated, and sexy on almost all women but it’s usually your personality that best compliments your hair style. You could get a basic braiding style or you could get something more complex. It does take a lot of time, effort, and focus to actually braid your hair and not everyone is born to be able to so you might have to get someone else to do it and for some of the more complex and unique braids you will have to get a professional to do it.
