Much Ado About Hair by Durnesque Much Ado About Hair by Durnesque
So I just finished performing in Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" as Hero. For the show I had to do my own hair. This is what I came up with.

Our theater set the play in the Regency period. I based the style on period pictures and silhouettes. Sorry the pictures are kinda crappy.

How To:

:bulletblack: Part hair in the middle. Section off bangs on either side from middle of head to just behind ears.
:bulletblack: Divide the rest of the hair into two sections- top and bottom.
:bulletblack: Pull top-back section hair into high pony tail. Curl hair.
:bulletblack: Make sock bun and pin ends of hair around the bun either loosely or rings around the entire bun.
:bulletblack: Make a small braid on both sides of hair using small sections of hair from bottom.
:bulletblack: Wrap these braids around the bun.
:bulletblack: Curl bottom-back hair. Either repeat sock bun or use piece and pin at random to form a knot of curls.
:bulletblack: Curl bangs into ringlets. If hair is long, pin up to desired length.

Err... I hate to be a bubbleburster, but this isn't Shakespearean(1600s). This is from around Jane Austen's time(1750s-1800s).

You're not a bubble buster, but you seem to have missed the comments under the picture where I mention that we set the show in the Regency era (aka Austen).

I'm sorry. I'm not english so I thought Regency was around Shakespear's time. It is lovely hair though. I think I forgot to mention that.

Gotcha, no Regency is 1800s. Shakespeare would be Elizabethan. And thank you!

Very nice! :D I will never figure out how you can do such complicated styles on yourself.
