These pictures are actually from a while back, but I never got around to posting them. The first is a Frida Kahlo style 'milkmaid' braid. I can't wait until my hair is actually long enough to do this without having to hide the ends under a huge flower! (29th November)
Barrel roll Victorian inspired updo. It looks pretty good here, but I had some trouble with the left front and it looked awful, apparently I have trouble pinning the reverse curls. But I think with some more practice, it could be great! I did the curls pretty loose to give the hair more volume. I really like this look, apart from my ineptitude :P (7th December)
I also found this great tutorial on YouTube about how to use little hair rats to make your hair stand out more on the sides like in the old pictures. I tried it with some bulky hairclips (all I had at the time) and it made a difference, so I think with bigger hair rats, it would look amazing!
