surprised we dont already have a thread dedicated solely to updos. So anyway, my hair is finally long enough to do something with so I have been scouring the 'net looking for styles to try out. Here's a few of my favourites: The Milkmaid Braid portwallpaper.com | lyellnyc.com ^I wear this style most days for college, everyone keeps commenting on how nice it looks heres how i do it: 1. Separate hair into two even bunches just above your ears and secure with a band the same colour as you hair. 2. braid/plait one of the bunches and then bring it up to the top of your head and secure it with two kirby grips [cross/overlap them to make them more secure] 3. repeat on second bunch making sure it meets with the other braid in the centre. simple I always think it looks prettier if its not too neat and tidy so I tend to loosen bits so theres a few strands of hair hanging down. A variation on the style: look.co.uk 1. Allow hair to dry naturally after washing in order to retain your natural wave, apply a palm sized amount of styling moose to help define texture. 2. Next, take the front section of the hair and part over to the side, plaiting in a downward direction. For those with unruly fringes try gripping back into centre sections with Kirby grips. 3. Then, simply pull back your ungroomed hair and twist into a messy chignon allowing unruly pieces of hair to flow freely around the neck and hairline. 4. Finally, spray a light mist of hairspray all over the head for hold and accessorise with flower and/or diamante accent grips for a feminine feel.
