Here’s “Bleak House” version 2. This style was inspired by the green dress style and some elements I liked from others so it’s not an exact copy. My other purpose was something for those of my readers who have straight hair. The current style for period drama hair seems to be very wavy/curly hair loosely looped back. If your hair doesn’t have much texture, there are some other ways to get a similar look. This also works great if you forgot to set your hair the night before. 😉
1. Part your hair in the center. Leaving out sections on the front, make a bun with the hair in the back. I did a shell bun, but a regular or braided one works, too.
2. Very loosely french braid both sections, and braid the rest of the way down. Where the “french” part of the braid stops, pin so that it puffs up slightly.
3. Wrap the braid any way you like. For this style, bring the braid down along one side of the bun, curve it outwards to the ear, and then back over the bun. Repeat on the other side.
4. If you still have braid left over, cross them over the bun and keep wrapping and pinning until you run out of hair.
Finished style from both sides
