Hi, I'm Marquetta Breslin from, and today I'm going to show you how to cornrow hair for crochet. Okay, so before I begin I just want to give you a little bit of background on what crocheted braids are. Crocheted hair or crochet weaving or braiding is just a cornrow and the hair is hooked onto the cornrow using a latch hook tool but the primary thing is the cornrows so the first thing you want to do before you start is you want to determine how the client wants to wear her hair. If she wants to wear it off of her face, you'd cornrow the hair straight back. If she wants some kind of hanging down then you'll have to cornrow the hair in such a way so that the hair falls down. So let's pretend that my client here wants to wear her hair kind of hanging down when we get ready to latch hook it in. So once you've determined that, once I've determined that I've sectioned my hair in such a way that she will be able to wear her hair down once I latch hook it in. So this portion of hair has already been sectioned and as you can see it comes across here and it goes straight back. The hair that comes across, once you latch hook it in, is going to fall this way and then, of course, this is going to fall naturally to the back and also anytime you are cornrowing, sometimes you may want to add a little bit of extension hair to the cornrow. So I'm going to grab my extension hair and I'm just going to add it to the cornrow to give me a little bit more stability and it will also give a little bit of length to the amount of time the client can wear this style. So I'm just going to start cornrowing the hair and all of your cornrows on this side are going to follow this one cornrow and then the other side is just going to be cornrowed straight back or you know, however the client decides to wear the hair. This is so simple to cornrow hair for crochet braids because there is no set way of doing it. You can be as creative as you want to be. So if your client is open to creativity and you know, then you can go so many different directions with this hairstyle. So once this cornrow is done, well once all of the cornrows are done, I'm just going to take a latch hook tool and I'm going to go underneath the cornrow and hook the hair all the way from the top all the way down to the nape. And you're just going to continue doing that for each cornrow until you're completely done and you can use any type of hair. You want to also remember to keep your cornrows on the small to medium size because the bigger the cornrows the less hair you're going to have and it may not look full. So it's real simple, real easy and that's all you have to do. So there you have it and remember, your cornrows are going to be determined by the finished style. So if your client wants the hair kind of in her face a little bit then you're going to cornrow the hair coming across like this and then going back, if they want to wear it straight back. The cornrows are going to be determined by the way the client wants to wear the hair in the end. So it's real simple, real easy. Again I'm Marquetta Breslin from Thank you for watching and I'll talk with you soon.
