Saturdays “Shappin” Hairstyle: ZigZag Pigtails

ZigZag parts are a great way to spice up a style. You can created a zigzag part to add some fun to any regular pig tail style.

I made a zigzag part down the middle of her head, stopping about halfway to add a pony tail in the back.

I put 2 braids in each of the 2 ponytails on the side, just to have a variation of the standard braided pigtail do. The next day I switched out the accessories. She wore this style for 2 days.

D wanted to share a picture of the Tinker Bell nails she put on all by herself:

These “press on” nails definitely did not last as long as the hair style did, they never do!

 

 

Saturdays “Shappin” Hairstyle: Kai-Lan Inspired Buns and Braids

This is a great summer style, because the nature of the buns protect the hair, especially the ends, from the sun and water if there is swimming involved. D’s hair had been washed, detangle and moisturized with Bee Mine Luscious Moisturizer prior to styling. To create this look, I started by parting down the middle then parting out the sections in the front I wanted to cornrow. I made 2 ponytails, putting each in 2 braids.

I then twisted the braids into buns and secured them with cloth bands and added scrunchies over each bun. Lastly, I did the 2 cornrows in front along her hair line…now my cornrows aren’t perfect, lol, I am still working on those.

She wore it like this for a day, then I added the front braids to her buns and she wore it that way for several days.
