Trensas (Braids)
How many of you girls still do trensas? Or you do trensas to your little sisters or cousins?

I admit, I still do trensas myself. Since my hair is really long (all the way to my waist) I make two 'India' trensas. When I say 'India', is because you know how those Old Time Mexican women (Indias) would have their hair braded one trensa on each side.

Now, I've seen Chicanas have their hair braded like the morenas. I've also had my hair braded like this also. (down in Tijuana for like $25 bucks).

Do you think when Latinas/Chicanas/Mexicanas have their hair braded like the morenas, it looks nice?

Ok, you guys have to tell me what 'corn rolls' and 'twisties' are.

Can you describe how each one looks? Please? :wink:

^^^^ I Hear Ya Sister!!

This one morena braided my hair in corn rolls. (Now that I know the difference thanks to you :wink: ) They went all the way to my waist, I almost wanted it to look like I had dreads (*spelling) or dread locks but looking like a trensa. I even made her put that lil bolita at the end of the braid, you know how some morenitas chiquitas have them also. Yeah, so she would pull the tip of my head and get my hair REEEAAALLLLY TIIIIGGGHHT, and shit she did make my eyes watery, but you know what I kinda liked the pain, (hee hee hee) :twisted:

^^^My mom would do the same when I was a little girl. She would put a string while braiding my hair and then tie it up on a bow on top, I looked sooo cuuuute! :P

I guess it's almost like a 'Family Mexican' tradition, almost.

Yeah I've had cornrows*, got them done in nicaragua. Ahh the pain... lol, me tenian con los ojos asi 8O . I liked the way they looked though... and then a friend did it for me earlier this year.

Man, but when I was just a little chica I always had 2 trensas. :D

Nelio 08-17-2004 06:00 PM

trensa's? whrere there cool and hot on a woman. but that cornroll shit. i mewan it is your hair. but doesnt look good to me. now the twisties i suppose that go half way back on the head that is nice looking.

i have seen a few girls like that and then the rest of the hair long and flowing and it was sexy. but i guess that is just my prefference.

i dont see the point in getting cornrols and shit.

now when i had long hair. i would get the back half of my hair in braids. but long ones and just so it would grow.

now is that true? does your hair grow if ya braid it?
