The Upbraid Hairdo


2 comments
For last night's exhibit I thought I would wear the cinnabun hairstyle, but there wasn't much time between leaving work and getting there so I wore that day's work hairstyle which was an upbraid.  I've seen a couple of videos of this style and I remembered braiding my hair up many years ago.  Isn't it amazing how styles resurface after a few years?

The style is really simple.  I sectioned off a part of my bangs.  Then I brushed the rest of my hair up like in a mohawk.  Starting at the base of my neck, I just French braided my hair up to the crown.  The tail of the braid was tucked underneath the bang area.  The bangs were turned into a sideways miniature french roll or what some might call the pompadour look.  After that was pinned in place, I just placed a headband on and clipped one of my crocheted flowers on the side.  And voila!

Pardon the frown in the last photo.  It was terribly sunny out.
