Some weeks, especially when life gets super-busy, JJ's styles kind of evolve over the course of the week; with a little hair time every few days instead of one big sit-down.
The starting point: Last week's cornrows and twists:
A few days later (forgot to take a picture) - the twists became twist-outs.
And then - the twist-outs in the back turned into box braids. I tried the half moon parts I read about at Beads, Braids & Beyond. I did my half moons upside down, but it had relatively the same effect (mmm, slept-on hair, braids have curled up, but you get the idea). JJ wanted lots of barrettes, as you can see.
It's been another busy weekend and I think the box braids (back) and cornrows (front) will stay for a bit. I'm going to add some beads to the box braids to get them hanging down a bit better.
Which reminds me - my snaps and beads from Snapaholics should arrive any day now - I'll post some updated pictures as this style continues to evolve...
