Hi!

First, I'd like to say I'm new here, but I've been lurking and reading your posts (the best source for USEFUL & beautiful hairdos I've found!) for a while and thought I might share these links with you. If nothing else, they'd make nice Halloween hair! The hairstyle is a Japanese one called odango atama (meaning dumpling head), and is seen in manga and anime (that is, Japanese cartoons), where there are a lot of longhaired characters.

I've tried the basic odango, and it looked actually wearable - it's just two buns with ponytails, which makes your hair look shorter. For me, this is practical, since my hair reaches now to the waist. It's blonde, straight, very thin and fine, and gets dry in the winter. Actually, I was hoping you could help with a hairstyle problem. Since in the winter I practically always put my hair under a ski cap to protect it from -20 Celsius/subzero Fahrenheit temperatures, I have trouble finding suitable styles. Ponytails, braids and cinnamon buns get boring after a while, but anything fussy is destroyed by the cap. Which protects my hair (and ears!) from freezing. Any ideas?

Sorry for the long post, and thank you for the forum,

You could try to learn crown braids. They put the hair up securely and they won't fall apart if you remove the cap.
But you have to be prepared to do quite a lot of practicing; I needed nearly one year of off-and-on practicing to do a crown braid that actually is balanced.

For instructions, see here: www.dreamweaverbraiding.com
It is the best website for braiding I know of. You just have to adjust the instructions for doing everything on your own.
