Box Braids

These were the first "box" braids we've tried on Q! I thought her hair was long enough to attempt it. and it worked!

I didn't part her hair into straight parts (if I had, then you'd see where this style gets it's name. In this case it's more like "sectioned" braids! lol ) because I didn't want to take the time. As it was it took 3 mini sittings to get all the braids in. (She's only 22 months old, not even 2 years yet - I don't expect her to sit still That long while I play with her hair! Movies only hold the attention span so long.)

I also did the front in a few cornrows to keep it from hanging in her eyes as much.

 I really could have left it like this, too :) I like it!

But this time we kept braiding :)

These braids are actually longer than I thought they'd be! Curly hair is so sneaky! lol

  1. My middle daughter has curly hair too. I love your pics. I can't do braids that tight. I am following your blog.

  2. Hi!! and Happy BIRTHDAY!!! Woooo! The braiding gets better with practice - don't worry. :) It helps to take small pieces, too. Anyway, if you want to braid as a protective style (to keep the curls from getting matted at night, etc) you don't want them super tight anyway!
