A Homecoming Hairstyle For My Goddaughter

          My goddaughter went to homecoming this past weekend. And yes, she asked me to style her hair, of course. At first, I had no clue as to what hairstyle she should rock. I asked her some questions to get a feel for what she was looking for. Then, the ol' light bulb went off. I knew she liked braids and curly hair. So I decided to incorporate both for her homecoming hairstyle. And she loved it!
         The hairstyle was inspired by Jill Scott who wore this hairsyle a few years back. This style looked amazing on her.

           My goddaughter, on a regular basis, wears her relaxed hair in a bob haircut. She has been trying to grow out a short haircut. So to achieve this hairstyle, all her hair was braided. The right side displays small braids as part of the final hairstyle itself. The remaining braids on the left portion of her head was used to secure the hair extensions. The hair extensions of choice: Outre Batik Candy Curl 16" 1B/33. The hair is 100% Kanekalon Fiber. I bought one pack of hair at $7.99. Only one pack of hair extensions was needed. Two packs of hair would make the hairstyle too bulky. Considering her small face, to much hair would just be overwhelming. Once I was done sewing the hair extensions, I did the final step which was cutting and shaping. She stated the length was perfect so I just did a little trimming.

          I just really enjoyed doing this hairstyle for her homecoming. Her big smile was priceless!
