This hairstyle was featured in the movie the “Mists of Avalon” by the character named Elaine who became Lancelot’s wife.

Instructions:

Step 1. Part the hair in the center and braid all the hair on each side of the forehead. Behind the ears take a section of hair and braid on each side.

Step 4. Bring this left braid across the forehead and thread it through the loop on the left side. You can pull the braids tighter to fit your head once you complete the weave.

Step 4. If your braids are not long enough to hang down as happened with the doll head I used take a large section of hair from the back and part it out. Tie the braided ends together under the large loose section of hair and then comb the hair over the tied off braids.

Step 5. This is the finished look of this style. Leave the remaining braids behind the ears to hang loose and tie them off with a pretty ribbon if you prefer.
