Okay basically just follow the tips above. When I first got the request I got all excited and ready to do it step by step with photos, but then I had a haircut and it's a bit short and plaits don't really work, I will try though:
(excuse awful webcam quality and tired eyes)
So, separate the hair so you have two lots
Plait one side
Plait the other side
Clip one side up
Clip the other side up
Add any accessories
Make sure you have spare clips and pins on you incase
Feel like a swiss maid
Don't act like a swiss maid
It really is that simple!!
Here's some I did earlier.......
being a teddy girl with a friend
(clips in place)
what is looks like on top
Okay, best of luck with anyone that tries this!!! It really is the simplest thing and I love it.
My only regret is that I didn't do my hair like this for prom last year.
