Cornrows are not my favorite hairstyle, but I still feel I should master them. I feel like they should be a staple in my hairstyle arsenal because they are pretty and, when done well, long lasting.
But they are not because I haven't been able to do them. For a long time, I basically gave up. But it still gnawed at me...I still wanted to learn.
So I figured I needed to start small, just do a few rows in front or something. So that is what I did yesterday, just six rows in the front. My parts are not that straight, my rows not that tight. But they are cornrows, and as I was braiding, I sort of felt like I was getting it. Sort of. Kind of pathetic at this point that I can do no better.
Still the end result was...well kind of pretty but I left a lot of hair free. And that's just not going to last the week...so now what to do?? Yeah, not sure, but no time to deal until at least Wednesday.
Kisae likes her free hair and her little rows. "I look like a lion," she said. Is that good?
Definitely remedial rows.
