I have a 6 year old with a head of thick curly hair that I keep cornrowed every 2-3 weeks. I really would like to get my nails done with short acrylics but I am worried that I won't able to cornrow her hair. Is it possible to still cornrow if you get your nails done somewhat short? Is there a different way you have to braid?

I think you should be fine....so long as they are short. You may want to ask for an active or natural length. I know the nail kits that they sell in the stores have tips that are active length for everyday wear. I love these length nails since I still need to be able to function. I'm an admin asst. At the nail shop when they apply the tips, maybe take out your cell and see if you can dial comfortably. If the length is right you should be able to...this length will still allow you to be able to continue to braid your 6yr old's hair. Hope that helps.

Definitely since they're short and acrylic nails because they are strong nails to wear, so it shouldn't interfere with you braiding.
