A Braided Up-Style (2)

Previous Page
 
We moved at this point to the left hand side of the head and created a section by parting the hair in front of the left ear. This section was braided with the base at the rear of the section, secured as done with the previous braids and its braid was wrapped counter-clockwise around the upper coil. Its end was tucked beneath the coil and it was anchored in place using small bob pins as well.
 
Our last section was the curved panel of hair starting behind the left ear and curving around along the nape of the neck. This section was braided, not as a three strand braid, but rather using the French braid technique. The hair was braided keeping the braid centered in the panel, and finished up in the right nape area. The remaining hair was braided in standard three-strand fashion and secured with an elastic band. The free portion of the braid was positioned vertically, crossing over the right- hand braid, and threaded in an S-shape between the two coils and the end tucked out of sight beneath the upper coil's edge. It was then anchored along its path using large and small bob pins as appropriate.
 
To finish the style, we misted it lightly with hairspray and gently patted down stray hairs. The design was then decorated using costume jewelry faux pearl bracelets, which were positioned to appear as dual rows of pearls. The design would look equally good using jeweled hairpins, or longer strands of beads to accentuate the curves of the coils.
