I like updos, it keeps everything back out of my face and off my neck, so this seemed like a good vintage hairdo that fits my style nicely. For the record, I have fairly fine hair that's a little below my shoulders when it's down. It has a little bit of wave when it's dry, but it's fairly straight. Also, fairly flat, but that's another story.

In retrospect, this needed to be a solid two inches higher on my head. Up right below the part would likely have been perfect. You'll see at the end, but it looks like mine sits a little low. And the coverage from the front part is a little weaker than I'd like. I'm hoping if the poof you make in step two is closer to the part it'll cover better. But on that note:

this was take 4 I think...
Step Three: cover and tidy. The instructions suggested back combing the front section, but that didn't work very well for me. So, I brushed it smooth and tried again. And it still didn't work very well. Option number three was to split it in two and crossed them. One side wrapping down and across and the other side going the other way. I'm sure that's a little hard to understand, if you need clarification, drop me a comment and I'll make a diagram.
I think with the changes I mentioned back at step one, I'll be pretty happy with it actually. I might experiment with a tiny bit of back combing in step three to give my hair a tiny bit of volume at the front, but over all, pretty satisfied. What do you guys think?
