Hairstyle How-To: Asymmetrical Figure 8

This sleek hairstyle can take you from office to holiday party, depending on how you accessorize it.

Here are some photos, clickable for larger pictures as always, with instructions following them.

It's made by doing a Figure 8 updo as shown in this entry,  however, instead of moving the top coil of hair straight down to create the "8 effect", you move the coil in a slightly diagonal direction.

After that, move the coils to position them for your desired look. This makes it look much less like an 8.

Put in hair sticks and you're done. In these photos, I'm using Mei Fa Hairstyx in Raspberry.

Hope you're having a lovely pre-holiday weekend.

'Til tomorrow, my friends. Much love to all, and extra hugs to anyone feeling alone today.


  1. A very lovely style, Franny. That's how I usually do a Figure 8, it always leans on the right. I think it looks more interesting that way.

  2. Thank you, Ohtawen, and I agree! I would just LOVE to see yours. I'll bet it's just awesome. :D

  3. Very pretty, I love the hairsticks too.

  4. Your hair is just gorgeous!!! I have tried several of you styles. Thanks for the tips.


I love hearing from you.
