There was something about the way her cornrows accentuated her petite look which had men drooling and women running for the salons. The look was not only interesting but it also gave her a certain sense of individuality.

The cornrow hairstyle first came into being in West Africa and is constructed by plaiting a persons hair very close to his or her scalp. The plaits run from the front of the forehead down to the base of the scalp in neat lines. The rest of the hair is plaited and left to fall around the shoulders.

You can style your own hair this way but it is always a good idea to have it done by a professional first in order to learn how to do it properly. This way you will not have to keep fixing your style up in places where it had come undone or becomes loose.

Cornrows are meant to run in straight lines but they can also be styles a variety of different ways. One of the ways is to have them made into designs along your scalp, especially along the back of your head. This will turn your cornrows into an even more fascinating style.

  1. nice blog, but you all don't provide any tips for proper removal of cornrows. a lot of women and men wear cornrows longer than individual braids some times-because they think its safer on the hair. and then their hair at the roots get so matted and tangled.

    it is so painful to detangle the hair as well. especially with sew-in weaves, so women leave it in for 5months-8months. the take down remover cream was designed to easily remove and detangle braids or cornrows. you all should try it for your blog readers.
