Today I tried my hand at leafing, a technique I learned from Raychel Emmon's wonderful book on hairbraiding. Basically you take sections of hair and tie them around each other in loose knots. After making my head-dress accent, I put my hair into a low ponytail. Then I braided my ponytail in a rope braid and wrapped this braid into a low bun.
I love the look of hair leafing, such a pretty accent for any hairstyle <3 My necklace is a gift from a sweet friend in Holland~ which makes it all the more special!
