Renaissance Hairdo

This time I tried to simulate a hairdo that I saw in a renaissance portrait.
That's me the first time I tried to do it.

I will present it to you on my sister.
I took a front part of the hair and divided it into four squares (the picture showed more of them, but it would require very dense hair). I braided each of them so that they would end up interwoven.

Then I took a small amount at the bottom and made one more small braid.

I caught the whole rest of hair and made one big braid beginning on the left.

I wound it so that the braids at the top would hide under it.

The lower braid was woven around the big one. Where I could, I took the unbraided ends of the small plaits, braided them together and hid under the big wheel.

Like this:-)
