Snow White Hair

I hope this is clear, taking photos of the back of my head was certainly an interesting challenge. Click on the photos to view them bigger, with the comments on flickr. snowwhitehair1.JPG

I started with slightly damp, brushed hair. My hair at the moment is this long, and as I said yesterday thin and fine. This style is very simple though and works in my hair when it's shorter. It might work well on lots of hair lengths and types. I left my hair a little damp because it makes this easier with freshly washed hair and also when you take it out leaves nice loose curls - a bit like the Disney Snow White's hair.

start twisting the hair inwards along the hairline

continue twisting the hair inwards, working along the hairline and incorporating hair into the twist

when you get to the centre back twist the remaining tail like this

lift up the loose half of hair and pin the twisted tail along the nape underneath it

do exactly the same for the other side and then add some more pins to make sure it won't fall out

this is how it looks from the front it's a lot easier to do this neatly while you aren't trying to photograph it :)
