Hair inspiration

This was a picture I found on Dreamweaverbraiding, which now seems to not exist anymore?
The hairstyle was supposed to be a bunned up braid, where after securing it, the leftover length is left loose. This picture was the second-last with the finished style having the entire tail loose.

I started with a five-stranded braid, just for fun.
My thought was that this would help to "flatten" the bun-part but that didn't seem to help. Pout.

I love how wide the five-stranded braids are on my hair, so I had to show it off!
4 cm at below shoulders.

The finished style.
Like all asymmetrical styles, it looks better from one side than from the other.

I'm amazed at how I can both have a decently sized bun and a hipbone length ponytail going on at the same time!

Would I do this style again?

No. It felt unbalanced and loose. I also almost got my hair caught in things, like closing the fridge.
Hubby really liked it though!


  1. I agree with's unique and gorgeous ♥ But of course you have to "live with it" during the day.
    BTW your braid IS totally awesome!

  2. Has to be said - that is an amazing braid! :)

  3. It's a lovely style! I personally love to do half-up, half-down styles not only because of the way they look, but also because a waist or hip-length 'ponytail' is more user-friendly than an above-knee one xD

    1. Oh yes! I agree :) I would love to figure something out that we both enjoy. The search continues!
      BTW I really enjoyed reading your blog posts on viking society! *Proud of my 94% viking ancestry, haha*
