June 2017 | Ghana Braids | Side Cornrows

June 29, 2017

Hello Everyone!

Long time no see! 聽I know, i know, it鈥檚 been a while since i have blogged, but i am quite active聽on Instagram, follow me to see some fantastic pictures 馃檪



So i have been seeing the #sidecornrows聽for the past couple of months on Instagram and Pinterest聽and decided to give it a try. So glad i did, because it came out fantastic! To get the correct style, i went on Instagram and spent almost an hour (covers face) to find the right picture, and i came by the blogger,聽@kirsti.pitre. I love her style because it is clean, crispy and beautiful.

I sent my aunt the images of the side cornrows and she knew exactly how she will braid it. She is amazing! if you live in Mississauga, Toronto or GTA and want to get your hair braided, you should message her via instagram @mosun2015.聽She always聽braids my hair聽and i am never disappointed.

I braided my hair on June 10th and聽used about 2 packs of colour 4 of the Xpression extension. My aunt suggested i add some colour, but i passed as i am not very brave in rocking coloured extensions. It took almost聽4聽hours to finish, but it was worth it, as the side cornrows came out fantastic!

I am definitely looking forward to trying similar styles on my next braiding schedule.
