I'm quite sure you are familiar with the stereotype?
Twin set. Bonus point!
Something like this...
(who is not a librarian BTW)
Anyway, there was much talk of buns and hair and a suggestion that we should reclaim the bun and wear it with pride! Which led to further talk about styles. I claim my french roll is a bun in disguise. @fionawb and @nomesd have egged me on to post a step by step guide to french rolls.
Well, this is how I do mine, takes me 5 mins. (My friend Rachel does hers differently - maybe she will show us!)
Step 1. Brush hair.
Step 2. Scoop the front part into a clip.
Step 3. Grab the back of the hair like you're going to do a pony tail and twist.
Step 4. Twist the tail around on itself and tuck under the roll bit. You can see the fluffy bit of the tail sticking out the bottom of the roll part here. I usually stick a few bobby pins in the top bit at this stage.
Step 5. Take the fluffy tail and twist some more and poke it under the roll.
Hmmm. Maybe a video would have been easier. But my DH already thinks I'm loopy posting this so.. another time. On request.
