The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying,
“Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love;
therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”
In today’s tutorial, I am wearing a locket that my grandmother gave to me a few years before she passed away. The front is engraved with the words “I love you” and a rose, delicately colored. I wish I could get a picture of it to turn out! This verse is on the inside.
And now, drum roll, please!
The long-awaited Romola Garai “Emma” style!
First off, the braid in the movie is fake. The rest of the bun, I’m not so sure about. It might be the actress’s real hair, or it might be a hair piece, also. The bun varies during the different scenes from messy to somewhat neater, to very carefully arranged. (Click on the individual words for examples.) My tutorial is for the messy/middle version, but I really like the very last one! For that bun try the pin curl recycle all the way down at the bottom of this page.
1. Using your favorite method, make your hair curly if it isn’t naturally. Mine was curled with a pin curl bun the day before.
2. With the top half of your hair, make a regular bun, but only go around once so that the ends stick out the top. If your hair is much shorter, you could just make a ponytail. Make sure you leave a sizable section for the braid.
3. Fold the curls over the top of the bun and pin the individual curls artistically randomly. I know that isn’t very descriptive, but you just need to experiment on your own hair and figure out what works for you!
4. Braid the remaining section and wrap it around the “bun.”
1. Which version of “Emma” did you like better? The new one had its moments, and some elements were better than the other versions. In my opinion, however, the Gwyneth Paltrow version told the story better, was more artistic, and overall, had the complete package. I wouldn’t show the Romola version to someone who didn’t already know the story.
2. New camera angle! What do you think? I’m working on fixing the exposure issues . . .
