Basic Irulan

My version: Not here yet!

Analysis (whoo, scientific): This is a relatively simple style, although I couldn't find a decent picture of the back. The sides of the hair are brushed back, twisted, then pinned. From there, the hair is braided, leaving a tail of several inches. Sometimes a headband is tied around the head (picture 1) before the sides are pulled back, in which case the sides are twisted up over the headband to hide the sides of it.

Directions: Separate out a section of hair from each side of your head, from just behind the ears up to the temples. Pull these sides back and twist them several times, pinning them to hold. Then combine the ends of this hair with the rest of the hair, braiding it all together in the back and tying it off several inches from the bottom. That's it!
