Ok, that is a goofy name, but I didn’t know what else to call this style. I’m open to suggestions!
This easy style is from the scene when Emma is consoling Harriet about her “loss” of Mr. Elton; this scene also features one of my favorite extras from the movie, an adorable spaniel puppy. How could a girl’s spirits not be lifted?
But I digress . . .
You will need to know how to do a shell bun for this style. If your hair is thicker or shorter than mine, you could substitute a regular bun.
More movie images.
Jane Fairfax also wears this style in a later party scene.
1. Part your hair in the center. With the hair behind the part and the top of your head, make a shell bun. Don’t worry about your scalp showing; we’ll cover it with more hair.
If you look at the first picture, Emma’s front hair swoops down and around the top bun to become a lower bun. This sectioning works really well when you want a front part and a very high style.
2. With all the hair you have left, make another shell bun right below the first one.
Here is the finished style from a different angle.
