10 Holiday Hairstyles for Natural Hair Kids
For this hairstyle, you will need to section the hair into four sections. Then, part a small bit from each section to braid the tiny cornrows in between each section. Then, braid each section and depending on your daughter’s hair, you can either use just her hair if she has long hair. If not, you can use hair extensions such as xpressions or any kanekalon hair. Add some hair jewelries and define the edge with an edge control.
