Analysis (whoo, scientific): A simple but very pretty style. The hair is parted for the first few inches, then the sides are made into lace braids. They're tied together in the back, and the rest of the hair is loose.

Directions: Part your hair and make lace braids on either side of the part, following the hairline to the ear (see Dreamweaver Braiding for directions on how to make a lace braid). Tie the braids together with a small elastic, and that's it!
