Throwback Thursday

Ah, the humble English braid.
It's the very cornerstone of being able to contain my hair at night!
And a very nostalgic style for me, since this was the first real "thing" I could do with me hair once I started growing it out.

Today's hair

After yesterdays disappointment, I just wrapped it up in a Royal bun again.
That one has a lot of strong sides: It's flatly packed against my head and shows off the braidwork very nicely.
The bad side however, is that it is  lacking the structural strength and hold of the Nautilus bun.
Hmm. I just can't win with this.

Today's hair

Continuing my thought from yesterday: I formed a classical Nautilus bun out of the top five-stranded braid...

...And then wrapped the bottom, three-stranded braid up and around.

I have mixed feelings about this. From some angles, this looks very good.

Maybe because it just looks like the Royal bun from some angles?

Other angles? Not cute at all! So lumpy and uneven.
