snagged style: Charlottes Avenue

So I did another snagged style. I can't help it, there's so many talented mamas out there! This one comes from CharlottesAvenue and her adorable daughter Choca. Its a mohawk with mini twists in the front.
For our version I parted out a section in front to do later. I did her hair like I normally would any mohawk by braiding each section straight back. When I was done braiding I secured it with a rubberband. I then finished it off by doing 3-strand twists (our first time and I love it!). The top portion I did different. I only did 2 3-strand twists..I'm not good with twists and got lazy by the time I got to this section.
I left it pretty plain and didn't really add barettes or beads on the end. Next time I will. I pretty much only did barettes so the twists would stay in. The twists lasted pretty long and I will be doing this style sometime soon again.
I eventually took out the 3-strand twists in the front for a (horrible) braid out. It looked pretty similiar to Choca's. Kind of....lol
