Cornrow hairstyles are in popular demand. Many women prefer this style because it requires little care and maintenance and provides a young man with a distinctive style. If you are considering this style, talking to a professional about the design you want and preparation you will need to make will be very helpful.
In the past, cornrows were usually straight, however, now they can be found in many different designs, geometric shapes, and as part of an overall theme. In many cases, professionals who are knowledgeable and experienced in this styling technique have created an art form that is very hard to duplicate and your style will be a one-of-a-kind. The ease with which you can achieve the design you are seeking will depend greatly on the thickness of your hair, the stylist and the steps that must be completed prior to getting this styling technique used on you.
Many professionals who can provide this styling technique have spend many years developing their skills. They are able to apply the tension that is required to achieve the design goal consistently throughout the styling process. In addition, they will know how much pressure to apply to the hair to achieve the design goal without causing pain.
An individual who has damaged, color-treated or very dry hair may need to see the professional a few times prior to styling to condition follicles and achieve the healthy state required to achieve the design without damaging the hair. The professional will discuss what steps must be taken before the process can begin in order to get the best results.
When the design has been completed, the professional will provide you with specific instructions on the care and maintenance of the design. They will also give you information about how you can care for your hair without damaging the design or follicles.
Creating cornrows for themes or events can be challenging because the design will stay in place for several weeks. Therefore, it will be important to talk to the stylist about how the design may be changed after the event so that you will be able to maintain your unique design for everyday wear.
The time involved in having cornrow hairstyles completed varies. In most cases, the styling will take anywhere from a few hours to several hours depending on the experience of the stylist, the type of hair that is being processed and the condition of the hair being done.
