So here is what I did:
- I pulled up half of my hair (after using a dry shampoo on the roots of my crown to add volume--I will rat/backcomb my hair on occasion, but dry shampoo or root lifters are pretty awesome) and bobby pinned the boof in place-into something resembling a half-pony-tail.
- I then separated the bottom section of hair into two equal parts (or as close to equal as I could get) and braided them.
- My hair is not nearly as long as hers, so my braids barely reached the center of my forehead (instead of all the way over to the opposite ear). So I wrapped the braids around each other, just above the nape of my neck, and bobby pinned them in place to create a bun.
I liked the results (especially since my hair had been curly before starting), but it needed a little something...more, but what?
A Chocolate Bow? A Turquoise Flower? Or a Snow White Headband? I actually kind of liked all three, but I stuck with the Chocolate Bow...since I planned to hang around the house, and maybe run a few errands-nothing special planned for the day.
But I think this hairstyle can be worn for fancier occasions, too. So I added some accessories to show you what I might where out on a date, while wearing this hair style. The pictures on the right are more 'before the date' pictures :)
Happy Hair Styling!!!
