There's this hair style in Dragon Age for human females that I wasn't sure was even possible.
Did you just do that with your hair?

Yep, just before I posted this and with just my hair, two rubberbands and some bobby pins; it was far, far easier than I expected. The ingame style seems to wrap one more time, but I think my hair would need to be 8-12 inches longer to do that.

Herm, I wonder if those pins would really work with my fine, slick hair. On the other hand, I LOVE using a stick or two to keep a bun in place - it always shocks me how well that actually works.
I think I will stick with bobbypins for this style, as I want the braids to lay flat to my head, so I used them all around the edges.
The pins work quite well for Maj (my daughter, sewfastdancer here on LJ), and her hair is long, very fine, and straight as a stick. They actually do a better job of holding a dancer bun for her than bobby pins ever did, which is why I decided to give them a try.

This hairstyle has all sorts of advantages over my usual choices. A high bun will hit the roof of my car, for instance, and there's the weight issue. A middle-high bun will interfere with the headrest on my car and have the weight issue. A low bun also interferes with the headrest. A braid (or even two) will start to fray out from moving over my shoulders and back as I move my head. A single braid will cause a lump behind my back when I sit in a chair or car.
This though, has none of those issues. I might just have to start using it regularly.
It's an elegant style as well - works with many different fashions. If I could do a braid in my own hair, I would give it a try as well. Sadly, my ability to braid hair is entirely dependent upon being able to see exactly what I am doing - something that isn't possible when one is working on one's own head.
