View Full Version : Cute old-fashioned updo

Tried this today, it's easy and really gets my hair out of the way!

I made two braids (using only about a third of all my hair) going at a gentle 30 degree angle from the crown to the back of the head. You could also try french braiding.

Then I simply divided all my hair into three sections, like for a normal braid, the braids included in the left and right sections along with some additional hair. Then I braided down and tucked this "big" braid into a chignon at the back of my head.

The result is a soft, old-fashioned, intricate looking, but not dowdy or overdone, hairstyle.

I took a picture but it shows tons of scalp cleavage and my braids are messy. I'll try to redo when I have time and post a pic then. Sorry!
