Lolita Up Do's

  I have pretty long hair and I like to wear it up.  Buns, braids, pig tails, pony tails, and more.  Since I get to wear Lolita everyday I try to make my hair styles match well but I don't want to spend a lot of time on doing my hair.  The only times I really spend a considerable amount of time on my hair is on the weekend.  Even though I have so much love for wearing my hair up I find I don't like pigtails all that much anymore.  If this was me from 4 years ago I would be singing pig tail praises.  Since I am getting a little older I find wearing them with Lolita starts to look like age play a bit.  Too 8 year old. 
Looking on Daily Lolita I see the majority of people wear either full wavy wigs that are in pig tails or just down.  Both are super pretty but it is nice to see things that are different as well.  Looking through the latest Gothic and Lolita Bible I saw quite a few up do's that really caught my eye.  I might even steal some of them and use the styles for myself.  Here are some of my favs!




I think i might be able to do most of these styles without bringing fake hair into the situation.  The top one would need some fake hair though.  That style has some height and weight.  Perhaps I will attempt all of these (and other styles from the GL&B).  
So, break out of the Lolita mold and try some nice up do's.  We don't all need long wavy hair w/ bangs.

  1. Aww, I specially liked the third one!

    Lately I'm usually wearing a considerable smaller version (xD) of the first one, and I still have to use a fake bun to make it look pretty. But it looks gorgeous and only takes about 5 minutes.
    I <3 buns~

  2. YES!

    Especially with classic and gothic, up-dos look really great. It's how I usually wear my hair too. Even with hime I usually do half-ups.

  3. Thanks so much for this! I've been trying to find something cute and Loli-able for prom. I think I might use the third one!

  4. I should try doing more with my hair once in awhile. My hair is rather short and thinned out at the moment, so I will have to wait awhile...

  8. I have really (really) long hair-to the middle of my butt-gorgeous, healthy, wavy/curly, dark brown (nearly black from about my neck up), thick, hair. But. My stupid hairline is slightly thin above the temples and when I cut myself some perfect Lolita bangs (pft-perfect for about a day before one side decided to go rogue)the left side lies perfectly nicely after some straightening and the right side *refuses* to straighten no matter what I do. It just does this weird twist/curve thingy and looks really weird. I also have a super young looking (I'm twenty and most people guess I'm in my low teens; I've even gotten ten before-score!)really round face, which isn't flattered by any length Lolita bangs. I really need some super Lolita alternatives! Most of what I've seen offered by peeps trying to solve this problem looks a little too... not Lolita.
