If you follow me on Twitter, then you already saw this do, the day I donned it. This is definitely going in the style arsenal.
I was inspired to try this style when I saw the fly lady below (the one on the left) rocking it on Le Coil. They were sharing the picture from its original source: Kwesi Abbensetts photography blog (awesome blog by the way).

HOW I DID IT:
I couldn't see what was going on in the back of her hair (it looks like it's in a bun maybe?) so I tweaked it.
All I did was leave a large section out in the front, pin the back up into a french twist, and then roll that large section in the front back and pin it down to create a hump. Simple, right?
It's spicier than the basic bun and is great at protecting your ends since they're all tucked away. You can easily dress this style up with a menagerie of different accessories like hair flowers, bows, or various earring styles.
Try it out.
Earrings are by who else, http://www.sofysticatedphunk.etsy.com/, naturally. :D This is a new style I will be introducing to the shop. I am actually off to add new styles to the shop and snap pics of new styles now.
Have a naturally fly weekend!
BTW you look beautiful as always! :-)
Jaded: Hey girlie! Thanks for your kind comment. I love this style and how easy it is. PS. You don't know how to french twist?! It's so easy. It's a frensh roll but tighter and smaller.
Marsha: Hey missy! Yes, I know I've been absent on the Tube. Been busy looking for a job. Haha. I did some vids but haven't gotten around to even editting them yet. I'm around here mostly now. Can't wait to see your vid on the style.
I'll definitly try it when I get enough length to do updo's!
