There was a tradition during Russian weddings bride's mother would undo her daughter's single braid and make it into two. The longer the hair was the better, so braids could be wrapped around multiple times and swallow the entire head.

    Also marrried women were required to cover their hair with scarves, so creating any sort of a fancy style was pointless younger girls could embelish their braids with ribbons and flowers. There were also some head coverings for "special occasions", like Kokoshnik. But yeah, the base for everything was a simple three strand braid. Nowadays when people try to recreate traditional Russian outfit they just put on a fake long braid and a Kokoshnik or a flower crown.
    Man she has some thick hair.

    How can I control my life when I can't even control my hair!
