Barbie of the Week: Here's to New Beginnings (Cherrianne)

Meet Cherrianne.

Why have you decided to lock your hair?
Because it is versatile and the longer it gets the more styles I can do.

How long have you had locks?
1 year and 2 months

What's your favorite hair product? Why?
Cherie Amore because it adds moisture to my hair. I also enjoy using olive oil.

What or who inspired you to lock?
I think locks is the essence of black women that's who we are; Beautiful.

Instructions on doing Cherriann's hairstyle
Her hair was interlocked using the interlocking needle. Then a small portion of the front was sectioned off and held in place with rubber bands. Starting from one side all the way to the other side of her hair was flat twisted and held in place with rubber bands (for longer hair you may go ahead and use hair pins).

 A vertical French roll was made and met the hair at the front of her head.
At the front, a portion was taken out to create the bang effect. The remaining portion was rolled and held in place by hair pins.The hair that was left out created a mini sweeping bang.

This hairstyle was created in less than 10 minutes. More hairstyles to come for short to medium length locks from Cherrianne.
