CHILDREN OF THE CORN

4th and Bleeker

YOU KNOW THOSE MOMENTS WHEN YOU DECIDE YOU AND YOUR STYLE NEED A COMPLETE OVERHAUL? USUALLY BEFORE THE WEEKEND AND AFTER YOU REMEMBER YOU JUST PAID YOUR RENT THEREFORE CANNOT SHOP FOR YOUR NEW VIBE DEBUT. IN CASE THIS IS YOU THIS WEEKEND, I'VE MADE YOU SOME GOOD VIBE MOOD BOARDS AND I'M SUGGESTING CORNROWS... A HAIR STYLE MASSACRED BY MANY (KEVIN FEDERLINE, VINTAGE JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, MIDDLE SCHOOL TAYLOR SWIFT, GENIE IN A BOTTLE CHRISTINA AQUILERA AND BASICALLY ANYONE WHO ATTENDED THE MTV AWARDS IN THE 2000'S.) BUT BEFORE THOSE IMAGES SCARE YOU I JUST WANT TO SAY, GIVE CORNROWS A CHANCE. ALL YOU NEED ARE BOBBY PINS FROM DUANE READE (24HRS) A STEADY HAND (OR A BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND WITH PATIENCE) AND YOU CAN BE A NEW YOU. HERE'S HOW: 1. BRUSH HAIR AND SPRAY WITH SEA SALT SPRAY (MORE TEXTURE THE BETTER) 2. PICK A NUMBER OF CORNROWS AND THEN MAKE SECTIONS STARTING FROM THE MIDDLE OF YOUR HEAD. 3. ANGLE SECTION OF HAIR TOWARDS THE FRONT OF YOUR HEAD THEN TWIST HAIR BACK AND PIN DOWN (NOTE:I PIN MINE HALFWAY BACK BECAUSE A. IT'S AN UPDATED VERSION BUT MOSTLY BECAUSE OF B. I HAVE A HEAD SHAPE THAT LOOKS BETTER WITH HAIR) 4. ACCESSORISE YOUR CORNROWS. WHETHER IT'S BABY'S BREATH OR PEARLS OR FEATHERS IF YOU'RE GOING TO BURNING MAN. JUST MAKE 'EM YOUR OWN. BISOUS, BISOUS!
