I don't have my first client, but I do have Leilani. I've started with the above the ear sections on each side. One side is done in a 3 pattern the other side with cornrows is in the 4 pattern. I was going to say note how one side goes down and the other side goes backwards - we learned that in class.
What I am showing here is how I am using the Sisterlock parting which I have to do in order to get certified, along with cornrow parting to create a well parted head of hair. I would like to thank Zaharah for sharing your pictures, I've been studying them. So far this SL/cornrow parting works in the front half. We'll see how the back goes.
