Hairstyle tutorial - Half-flipped bun


Back to tutorial videos with my variation of the Flipped-bun - Instead of flipping all hair before inserting the fork o stick, here I flipped half of the hair and wrapped the rest around the stick:


And some pics:

2011 hair - Celtic-inspired multibraided hairstyle

Today's post is a historical-inspired hairstyle, a multibraided do for my Celtic Sword-woman costume ‘reenactment’, back in 2011 (yes, I know, belated!), for a show that our Irish group prepared  to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day (video here).

What I did was braid all my hair in small braids, ten in total. They're simple three-strand braids, I guess this look would look cooler with some french or dutch braids or a couple of cornrows at the sides, as were worn by Celtic and Viking warriors. Two of the central ones are braided into another braid in order to keep the hair out of the face; the thinnest couple of braids are the front braids kept in place behind the ears; and the rest of the hair is braided in a reasonably symmetrical fashion, with thicknesses becoming thinner towards the front:




More pics from the show (although hair isn't that visible :/)  (for larger pics, click on pics or open in new tab):




I left the braids in my hair for two-three days (including washing my hair, I think that was the only time I've washed my hair in braids), and got tight braidwaves that lasted for days :)



The central multibraid resulted in crimpled braidwaves:


And to finish, a more casual version of the Sword-woman outfit, with a simple three-strand braid:

Hairstyles - Length-shortening cinnamon half-updo with curls

I chose this style (which I generally call my fem!Sherlock cosplay style) in order to play Mozart on the flute during the June end-of-term concert at my music academy. As a cosplay enthusiast, I often also like to do casual cosplay or historical-inspired looks for events, so for this concert I did a 21st version of 18th Century aesthetics with the flowery dress and the curled half-updo.

Random hair pics - Braided high ponytail with paranda in Yorkshire

Just some random pics this time - A braided high-ponytail with my purple paranda back in September 2015, visiting the Haworth and Stanhope West Yorkshire moors (the inspiration for Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights). I really like that the paranda matches the heather :D!

Random hair update II - LHC Swap hairtoys and braided buns

PhD work and other things mean I haven't updated this blog since December 2016 :S xD, so here is another random post with some pics from the last couple of months - Featuring braided buns with parandas, and new hairtoys from the LHC 2016 Winter Swap :D

In the last LHC Winter Swap I got, among some other things, such as lots of chocolate :D and a handmade lip balm, this gorgeous three-prong Jeterfork and a couple of metal bun pins with green stones. Both work great to hold my (slippery) hair and I've been wearing them non-stop for the last fortnight :D



I've also been wearing a lot of braided buns with my newest blue-and-purple paranda, sometimes with side lace-braids, and usually using my new metal bun pins:

Random hair update I - Heatless waves and length shots (kinda)

PhD work and other things mean I haven't updated this blog since December 2016 :S xD, so here is a random post with some pics from the last couple of months - Featuring braidwaves and heatless bendy-roller curls, and length shots of sorts (although with the added texture and the ponytails/half-ups, the real length is actually shortened).

Did some experimentation with braidwaves+bendy-roller curls on the ends mainly in February. Hemline still needs thickening up, hoping it does with some more maintaining, if not I'll consider trimming back to fingertip or something because I'm missing my thicker, blunter ends...But at the same time I also like being at knee, so we'll see xD

-Braidwaves plus bendy-roller curls (ends are still clumped together because of the rollers I generally prefer to leave them that way to avoid frizz xD):

-Looser bendy-roller waves, hardly any braidwaves;

-More braidwaves, tighter bendy-roller curls at the ends:
