I was wearing a pretty salwar kameez and decided to do this to complete the "image." It's a very
simple style to do, as long as you can French braid!
All you have to do is make two French braids on both sides of your head (like pigtails), starting wherever you want. I started just behind the hairline. Then tie off the ends of your braids. Start wrapping one into a bun (and you will probably need something to hold the bun to keep it in a round shape), and then wrap the other braid around the first bun. I secured with mini claw clips because I find they hold better than bobby pins... and this is my bun about 8 hours after I made it!
And here it is from the side:
Sorry for the funny angles, I took the pics myself!
