Hi again, LHC!

Thanks so much to AuburnTresses for her post on the beautiful hairstyle she discovered on-line~ if you haven't seen her post yet, here is a link to it: http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=69116

I attempted this look today~ my hair is too long for the beautiful messy bun the girl in the original pictures has, so I just made a loose bun at the nape of my neck. At first I tried something a little higher, but it just wasn't working for me today for some reason. Anyway, here are some pictures:

Looks good :) Like your hair clip.

Beautifully done, Arc691, although I like buns placed higher on the head. Your hair clip is charming!

April 27th, 2011, 07:02 AM
Oh my! That's really thud-worthy, Arc691! Really lovely :D

April 27th, 2011, 07:07 AM
Wow! Your hair is always so beautiful! Also, that is a very pretty clip. :)

April 27th, 2011, 07:26 AM
Gorgeous! And also it's a great variation on the original! Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous! I can't wait until my hair is long enough to do that ^_^ Thank you for providing the link to the tutorial.

What ever you do works for you! You are amazing with all your creative hairstyles! Thanks for sharing!

That's beautiful! Now I have to try it. I saw it before and was wondering what to do with the extra braid (in the original she just tucks them behind her ear, but that doesn't work for longer hair) - do you just wrap the tails of the braids into your bun?
It really is lovely. Good job!

April 27th, 2011, 08:23 AM
This is beautiful and I actually think I might be able to do this one (although I don't have bangs and never will because of my pesky cowlick!) Thanks for the pictures.

:thud: Absolutely stunning!

P.S.-You are officially my hair idol. :o

April 27th, 2011, 12:43 PM
Wow!!! This is beautiful!!!! I absolutely love it (and I love your hair clip too)!!!

Gorgeous style, as always! :crush:
Your hair is such a beautiful color, and you do such wonderful styles!:)

April 27th, 2011, 02:05 PM
Oh my gosh! That is sooo pretty! :D Excellent job!

April 27th, 2011, 02:16 PM
Everything in your pics is beautiful! Your hair, the style, the hair clip and the earings!

April 27th, 2011, 02:43 PM
Gosh, how gorgeous!

http://i1183.photobucket.com/albums/x472/andrearcolson/My%20Smilies/thanks-2.gifThank you so much, everybody, for all of your responses to my post! Lunnafindel~ you're right, I made a low ponytail with my left-over hair and the tail-end of my braids and put that into a loose bun.

April 27th, 2011, 07:04 PM
This looks amazing - I love it!

April 27th, 2011, 07:54 PM
Oh, neat! Inspiration, I haz it.

Totally going to try this.

April 27th, 2011, 08:06 PM
Oh my. Inspiration! I've been getting a little stagnant after 33 days of up-dos. (I have found favorites and tend to re-do them until they get boring!)

April 27th, 2011, 08:08 PM
very pretty! :)

April 27th, 2011, 08:15 PM
Lovely clip in an even more lovely updo!

April 27th, 2011, 08:25 PM
Wow, this is beautiful! I love it! I hope my hair grows fast so I can play around with hairstyles!

April 28th, 2011, 02:55 AM

You all are so nice~ I appreciate all your comments and replies!

April 28th, 2011, 07:19 AM
So beautiful! I think I'm going to have to try this one :) I'm going to have to play with it for shoulder-length hair though.

April 28th, 2011, 07:33 AM
I love this look on you! :) Yay for a new style!

April 28th, 2011, 07:36 AM
Wow! I really envy your hair styling talent.:) It looks wonderful.

April 28th, 2011, 02:54 PM

to everybody for all the views/comments on my post!

April 28th, 2011, 04:30 PM
Very very pretty! I think I'll try this tomorrow, so thanks for sharing the link.

I had to laugh a little at the tutorial, however, when it said
[model] has extremely long and thick hair, . She has gorgeous thick hair, it's true, but I think the superlative "extremely" belongs to you!

April 28th, 2011, 04:36 PM
That's a wonderful look on you! I wish my hair was long enough to try that.
