Crazy Twisty Hair Design by aelthwyn Crazy Twisty Hair Design by aelthwyn
Beware if you are ever in front of me and have long hair....something like this may happen :D

I don't know what all I did here, but there are two french braids coming from the front to halfway back. It looks like I did those with adding hair only to the strands coming from below, rather than above and below. Then there's a couple of thick but short twists which seem to overlap the braids on the sides, as well as a couple of slightly smaller twists hanging down (the twists look rather like those twisty doughnuts if you view them straight on) And then a lot of little braids lopping around......

to make the twists here I simply twist a section of hair tightly to one direction, then I hold it in the middle and bend the end back up to meet the top by the head, and then let go - it twists itself up into this thing that looks somewhat rope-like with a loop at the end.

I made the large orriginal size available for download so you can see the details better if you like.

Simply lovely! Where were you when I had hair brushing the tops of my thighs? I have ever been hopeless braiding my own hair, but after a car accident I just let it grow so long, until I constantly got headaches and my family got tired of doing my hair for me. ;)

aww thanks! hehe, I'm always bugging my friends to grow their hair out so I can do stuff like this, makes me sad whenever people cut their hair
