    Thumbs up Cool style: hair-friendly, no teasing beehive-ish

    I found this beautiful clever, hair friendly style, that is easy and gives a very different kind of look (at least compared to how I usually style my hair). I haven't tried it yet, my hair might not be long enough for this yet, but I though I'd share. I pinned it for later reference.

    It looks beautiful, but I think my hair is not nearly thick enough to make it look good.

    Ditto. A single braid on my hair is equivalent to one of her braids in that tutorial and those are probably 1/4 of her hair each. That said, I'll probably still try this at some point. In construction it seems to be an upside-down tuck.

    Neat! I like how the half-up is turned into a bouffant, and then the rest of the hair, split into two and then draped like milkmaid braids. I bet you could just make a second ponytail with the hair underneath and create an even bigger bouffant!

    Nalgena and lillielil - It doesn't have to end up looking exactly like hers, skinnier braids would still look beautiful accents! Try it out, use this as an inspiration, tweak it to suit your hair, and maybe you will get pleasantly surprised!

    Lapushka that's a great idea about turning all of the hair into pouffant! Maybe then tyeing a skinny scarf around the head instead of those braids, that could look really nice!

    Oh that's nice!!! I'm not fond of most braids on myself so I may try a variation where you divide the lower section hair in 2 sections, cross them at the back and then maybe twist each section and wrap them overtop like she did the braids... must try!

    Awesome find, Arctic!

    That's pretty cool! Thanks so much for sharing!
    I remember seeing a very similar trick in a couple of YouTube videos, but they used a braid instead of a ponytail there, which I think can be safer (because when you roll up a braid, there is less tangling potential compared to rolling up a ponytail in a ball/bun), but I think a ponytail rolled up can create a fluffier/bigger bump with less risk of braid intersections showing through the hair on the surface.

    (ETA: here is one of the videos, in case anybody is interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DnCi6pY1P4)

    That's a great idea. My hair is too thin for it, I might try and steal the bouffant idea but find something else to do with the remaining hair. Maybe a mini french twist or something.

    I can't wait until my hair is long enough to try this! The braids wouldn't reach the front from the back.
