This month, it's all about the copy cat styles, but with a twist (well, many twists in our case)! We have been sworn to secrecy as to whose style we would be copying, so this weekend is the great reveal!
The blog I had the pleasure of copying is Baby Bella Hair. I remember "meeting" blog author Tracey waaaaaay back during the Beads Braids & Beyond one month protective styling challenge in the spring of 2011, and I have been following her blog ever since. Her daughters Kae and Lea are just too cute! They are also close to JJ's age, and have hair textures similar to JJ's, so this was an easy match!
JJ and I looked through the Baby Bella Hair styles and narrowed it down to 2 styles for this post.
The first style was the one that Lea wore after her 26 days of mini-braids. You can see the original style here at Baby Bella Hair, and here is a photo from the original post:
Look at those shiny twists! As soon as JJ saw this photo she HAD to have this style! We started with clean, detangled, hair.
I'm sure I have mentioned that I love twists, and so does JJ. What amazing, versatile hair she has that it can go from fluffy, cotton candy hair in the left side of the photo (which I also love!) to the twists on the right:
This style was a hit (despite her funny face in the first photo - concentrate on the hair, not her annoyed look)! The first day we put clips at the ends of the twists - both for decoration, and to help the ends look a little more tidy. Because I usually used 1 clip per 2 twists, the twists kind of twisted together, for twisty twists, as you can see below:
The next day the clips came out, and the twists untwisted, for basic, still very cute, slightly kinky twists:
Later in the week, JJ added her own extra accessory, and insisted I include this photo - she was very proud of herself!
Thanks, Baby Bella Hair - we loved this style!
But WAIT - that's not all - JJ chose another style, this one was a mommy style that Tracey did on her own hair!
Thanks, Baby Bella Hair for TWO great styles!
