Pamela Ferrell: Hi! I am Pamela Ferrell with Cornrows & Company Natural Hair Care. Today I am going to show you, how to do a simple cornrow hairstyle. We have sectioned the hair and to the different partings that we need to do and next, in this segment, I am going to show you, how to do an invert Cornrow.
What you want to do is just kind of pull that hair together, from where you want that braid to be and that's going to determine what your beginning point is. So we are going to start right here.
Now for a braid, you need three sections and in an invert braid what happens is the braid is invert like a zipper. But when you do an invert braid, you use an overhand motion. So as you see, I have my three pieces and the center piece will lay down and the outer piece will go over the center. Outer piece over the center. So you alternate from side-to-side with the outer piece going over the center and what I am grabbing is small amounts of hair, into each outer piece as that center becomes the outer piece. And if you notice, my fingers stay in contact with the scalp at all times, that's what keeps that cornrow flat along, the scalp.
This is an invert braid, this is a very popular braid in West Africa and if you notice, I use my thumb to part through and I use my fingers, to kind of clean that section, because you'll always want to make sure, you have a nice clean section, as you braid in that's what's going to give you a really neat cornrow.
Again, this is a inverted cornrow, but we use an overhand. If you notice, my hands are taking the outer piece over the middle, over the middle. And now, we'll braid off, of the scalp okay, and this braid, I am going to leave just a bit loose on the ends because when I style it, that will give me a little extra hair. Alright and we are going to do the other side.
So here we have our invert cornrow, which is a cornrow that lays flat along the scalp and it's done, it's called an invert but we use a overhand method and that's what we are doing for her hairline. And in our next segment, I am going to show you how to do an Overhand Cornrow, which is a cornrow that will sit out.
