So, today I have a nerdy post for you. (As if this whole blog doesn’t ooze nerdiness anyway…) Today’s hairstyle is inspired by Legolas from Lord of the Rings. (Yes…today’s hair was inspired by a dude.) Now, I’ve only seen the first Lord of the Rings, and I don’t remember much of it. (Blasphemy, I know) Anyway…
Pretty cool, eh? So, it’s basically one fishtail, and two regular braids down the sides. The braids are Dutch-braided (hair-incorporating) up until about past the ear, then I stop incorporating hair and just braid regularly. This helps them stay and follow the path you want it to go so that it simply falls behind the ear instead of falling forwards into the face.
This was actually done for Graduation, where we were Rose Arch girls. I did not do my own hair, but I will post a pic of how my hair was for graduation too
It’s a waterfall braid with curls, and I was in love with it. Anyway, back to the real point of this post…
There was debate about whether or not they were fishtails on the real style, but that would have taken forever so we were fine with regular-braiding them. You can take a look for yourself and decide.
I’ve also done the Elrond style on Hannah, but did not get a chance to take a picture of it
