Copycat Style: Cornrows and Twist-Out on Natural Hair

Reason number 859 why I love my salon: Regina is a bomb @ss braider!

Here in Louisville, KY we are blessed to have several hair salons and I get my tresses hooked up at Natural Alternatives Salon.  While Dakota is my regular stylist I often hop in the chair of the other stylists when I want to try something different.  Regina is an excellent braider and I am a huge fan of her work so I booked an appointment for this braided style.

The Challenge:

Using on this picture on my cell phone Regina set out to hook me up.  We up’d the ante as I was determined to rock this style to the New Edition concert later that evening so there was no room for failure. Pressure on.

Regina was putting in work, getting the partings and the cornrows to lay just right.

All done!  We left my hair in twists that I would take down later before the concert.

Below are the pics taken after getting ready for the concert, I took the twists down.

I was very happy with the way the style turned out!  Here is a shot of me and my girl Nu at the concert, we had a great time with Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Ralph and Johnny too.

  1. Umm, that’s looks nothing like the picture. I have family members( who are not professional hairstylists) who can braid better than that. Can stand the salons that we have around here.
