Cornrow Hairstyle Tutorial

Criss Cross Over Cornrow Hairstyles

Both of these cornrow hairstyles are similar and basically start off the same way. Your parts should resemble a pie or pizza.

(For steps 1-3 refer back to the hair parting diagram above)
Step 1: Part hair in four sections. (front to back, ear to ear) clip each section to keep them separate

Step 2: starting with the right front section and from the center point, I parted diagonal so that I had two triangles.

Step 3: I then split those two triangles in half from the center point making 4 triangles in that 1 section. Make sure you keep the 4 triangles separate.

Step 4: starting w/ the 2 triangles at the top make a set of criss crossed cornrows (if you’re not sure how to do that see our criss cross cornrow tutorial) going to the center of the head, w/ the bottom two make 2 regular cornrows going to the center of the head.

Step 5: repeat steps 2 & 3 on the left front section. Once top portion is complete, secure w/ an ouchless band.

Step 6: untie back right section and split into 4 triangles like we did on the top and just cornrow downward.

Step 7 repeat on the other side and accessorize as you like.
