With the new school year in full swing, picture day came quicker that I thought! I found myself, once again, scurrying for a quick and easy protective style for Olivia not only for picture day, but because she has just finished a style that left her natural hair to flow in the wind (in Olivia’s words, a ‘Big Girl Hairstyle’). I alternate between “Big Girl Hairstyles” and Protective Styles. This post is going to be a protective style that Olivia is currently rocking featuring Mochi Twist Hair for Children by Harlem125Hair.
I used 2.5 packs of this hair. This hair can be purchased from your local beauty supply but if you are in Houston, NG Beauty Supply never lets me down, they have a great selection. My first impression of the hair is that it is super soft, looks natural when installed and is tangle free (as of now). I will do an update on the hair once Olivia has worn it for a couple of weeks.
Now lets get to the good stuff 🙂
An example of amount of hair in one bundle out of the pack-vs the amount of hair that I use. A little goes a long way:
The base before it’s put into a ponytail. Before and After:
Picture Day ready!
Total time: 2.5 Hours (1 Hour for co-washing, 30 minutes for Braiding, 30 minutes to crotchet, 3o Minutes to trim/cut)
Olivia’s flower headband is also from NG Beauty Supply.
Feel free to ask me any questions you may have 🙂
