how to cornrow

1. Start with detangled, moisturized hair.

2. section off hair. I start by parting the hair from ear to ear so you only have to cornrow half way back.
3.start by parting straight back (you can part it however thick you want).

4. clip the rest of the hair out of the way.
5. section off (vertically) a small amount of hair.

6. split that piece of hair into three sections.
7. do a few under hand stitches with the three sections of hair.

*cross right under middle
*cross left under middle
*cross right under middle
*cross left under middle

8. now you can start your cornrow, you will only be adding hair to the middle piece.
9. with your thumb and index finger pinch off a little bit of hair and add it to the middle piece.
10. now cross your right piece under middle piece (your right piece is now your middle piece)
11. add a little bit of hair to the new middle piece and cross your left piece under middle piece.
12. keep doing the last three steps.
13. once you get to the end of your cornrow you want to start doing a regular braid, braiding under hand.

practice makes perfect!
