This is more or less what my hair looks like when I put in some effort.

This is so pretty! Did you do the braids yourself?

Yes, very pretty.

I have a silly question: is that all of your hair or did you had hair? I need to find someone to teach me how to braid/cornrow.

Did you learn on a dummy head and then try on your head?

I already exhausted Utube and other free online resources before going to someone. I basically called around to the braiding shops in the area and found the cheapest one that was willing to teach me. I found that the people doing braids out of their home were much cheaper. It took 2 sessions for me to learn the basic techniques of cornrowing. The first 1hr session($30) she had me practice on my hair and loaned me her dummy($20 that was returned when the dummy was returned) to practice the techniques for the week. On the 2nd 1hr session($30) I practiced on my hair while she watched and gave me pointers. At that time I didnt wish to spend any more money so I went to Sally's using my 20% off coupon and bought a manikin head (Mesha for $25). I practiced on Mesha during the week and myself on the weekends for about 2weeks before I dared wear cornrows to work HTH

Thanks Winona!

I am going to search for someone to teach me. I need hands-on help to learn how to do braids.

Are cornrows the same as french braids?

After Ouidad haircut. Attempted to add color but after using Henna and Indigo to dye it jet black, only the roots took to the color, very little color deposited on the rest of my hair. I think it looks pretty cool though.
