Hair Carnival: Copy Cat Style



So as you can see it is that time again, Hair Carnival time. This go round Brooke from UntrainedHairMom thought it would be interesting to not know who had your blog and vice-versa to do their Copy Cat styles from. I think that this has been extra interesting for all of us who participated.

The blog that we got to do a copy cat style from was Divalocks. Actually the style was a recreation that Tiff did on herself from a YouTube video. So the is a copy of a copy cat style and another neat thing is that each of the styles were all done a different way on different length/texture hair. Stop by and check out the "Zipper Braid" on DivaLocks post.Des wanted to try but we weren't sure how it would turn out since her hair was wavy/curly from her previous style.

I must say that the style was easy enough but took longer than I expected. I think the reason for this is Des' hair is thick and long. To do this style I just added moisturizer to Des' hair and finger detangled gently. I then used small rubberbands by Proclaim and followed the instructions as best I could from the video. Here is how everything turned out. It was nice, a little less structured than what Des' is used to when we do braids but the braid definitely fit what is trending now with hair.




I hope that you all enjoyed our Hair Carnival. Please leave comments about what you think of this style and if you try it yourself feel free to post the pictures on our Facebook page. 

Until the next time... Stay Blessed.
