Analysis (whoo, scientific): This style is beautiful and quite complicated. It consists of a high, complicated bun with a single long braid hanging from it. The top portion of the style is partially covered by an elaborate bun cover thingamajig (technical jargon, there). From pictures 2, 5, and 6, it looks like the upper part is probably a huge braid wrapped into a bun; either that or it's a bun folded and wrapped around itself, it's not quite clear. In either case, it's not a regular twisted bun. All of the hair is pulled straight back and up into the bun, with the single braid hanging from underneath it. The braid is braided pretty far down, with a gold wrap tying it off a few inches from the ends (you can just barely see it in picture 3, it's clearer in the movie). The bun cover thingamagig is open on top and across the back (see 2 and 5) with portions of it curving above and around the bun. It may actually be two curved pieces rather than one; it's not clear if it's joined together under the bun or not. Incidentally, this is the first time we ever see what's holding a style up; to this point, I assume they're using bobby pins, because you can't see how the style is held together.

Directions: Gather all of your hair into a high ponytail. Braid about one third of it almost all the way to the bottom and tie it off. This is going to be the braid that hangs down. Braid the rest of the hair loosely and coil it around into a bun, hiding the original ponytail elastic and covering the beginning of the hanging braid. Pin it securely. That's it!
