Learn how to cornrow right here, right now with this 3 minute video. I wasn’t taught how to cornrow… I practised ’til perfect when I was around 12 years old and voila! I’m pretty good now.
Things you need before you start cornrowing:
- A person or a doll’s head – The bigger the better if using a doll. Also, avoid smooth bone straight hair when learning… friction is your friend.
- A tail-comb (or small comb) – Neat parts are desirable but don’t obsess over this in the beginning.
- Clips and hair-bands – To section the hair and keep loose hair out of your way.
- Remember! – plait to the ends or use elastic bands so they don’t unravel.
Be proud! Your cornrows are gorgeous 🙂
