Hi there! I’m trying a different technique to get my Edwardian style pleat to work better. Here I hope you can see in these pics, I’ve started with a half up style, low down, then tucked all my hair up and through this , finishing with a comb. It looks neater than before, and less is falling out of the sides. It needs more practise, but – It is starting to get there!
Grab two strands and start to make a half up style with a covered elasticated type hair band.
This brilliant YouTube video by the lovely Stonebridge ladies talks you through it really well too!
It sounds complicated, but I promise you it’s really not, and only takes a couple of minutes, tops. Why not give it a try?
