Oh Em Gee!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I need this style in my life! I've always had a bit of a crush on the shaved sides and would like to try that one day. But for right now, I will try the side cornrows/faux shaved side with crochet twists!

I'm not straying from my goals for this year, but I would love to see  how my hair would look. I saw this style and I knew that I just had to do it! So here is my style for the week:

Let's Get Started!


I saw this style above and just wanted to try it out for a few weeks. I thought this looked so cute and edgy for the end of summer...and I've even thought about shaving a side one day. So I just wanted to see how this style would look.

Hair, Color, And Packs

From the local beauty supply store, I decided to get:
Color: 4 (3 packs), 530 (1 pack) 
Price: $4.99/pack (purchased from local BSS)

Regimen And Products

It is very important to prep your hair for long-term styling effectively and the correct way. This time I used: 
Massage/Detangle/Pre Poo - Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner

Braiding Pattern For Crochet Twists + Side Cornrows/Faux Shaved Side

I worked on my faux shaved/cornrow side first, then braided the rest of my hair. I created an area in the front and the other side to add single twists, then I crocheted the twists into my braiding pattern.

For the singles, I two-strand twisted my hair first then braided my twists with faux hair (some cheap hair from the hair store).
