Quick & Easy Guide to Cornrow Short Hair
Assuming that your hair is ready, use these instructions to make cornrows.
1. Section a chunk of hair you want to cornrow. Use hair clippers to separate this and the rest of the hair.
2. From the sectioned hair, create three tiny strands on the right, center and left. Apply gel to hold the cornrows.
3. Criss-cross each strand over and under the other.
4. As you go down the cornrow, add the amount of hair on each strand.
5. Secure the ends by twisting around the finger and applying extra gel to hold them in place.
6. Follow the above steps to finish the rest of your hair
