Cornrows and Beads: Hairstyle for Kids

Cornrow hairstlye with beads for kids

I just recently got  D’s hair trimmed (I’ll post some photo’s soon), it hadn’t had a good trim since November. But before the trim I wanted to do a cornrows with beads hairstyle, she hasn’t worn beads since around the first of December when we did a fun Christmas hairstyle.

Cornrows, Beads and a Bun

For this style I started with the cornrows down the back of her head, adding heart, princess crown and regular pony beads to the ends of the braids. (Want to know how to get the beads to stay on? See our instructions on how to add beads to braids). Next I started a part above her ear and began braiding, I wasn’t sure what I was doing or how it was going to turn out, I actually almost gave up and didn’t finish the style because I didn’t think I was going to like it, but it turned out ok, I was pleasantly surprised. Once I finished the top/front cornrows I put those braids into a bun.
