Learning to Cornrow

Debra the Cosmetology Mannequin Head

Meet Debra,  my trusty mannequin head.  I ordered this cosmetology mannequin from This is what I turned to in order to teach myself how to cornrow.  I did not want to put my daughters through the pain of having to wear a bad set of cornrows out in public.  Debra has definitely come in handy.  After getting frustrated and finding out I was teaching myself how to cornrow incorrectly, I gave Debra a break.  And then decided, let's try this again.....the right way.  Well, I am proud to announce that I am on the right track.  Perfect Practice makes Perfect!!!  Stay tuned to see how I improve...


  1. I definitely need to buy one of these to practice on. I don't want to make Babeegirl have to sit through one of my learning this would be perfect...

  2. That's exactly how I felt. It is so worth it!! I learned how to cornrow and flat-twists with "Debra". I bought it on but surprisingly found they had a few in my local beauty supply store with a more kinky (ethnic) texture. Good Luck and let me know how it goes.
