Lúthien cosplay loose hairstyle

In a recent post, I talked about the braid I came up with for Lúthien's cosplay. In this one, I'll be posting some pics loose variation, which is the style I usually wear when I'm cosplaying Lúthien Tinúviel from Tolkien's Silmarillion: hair loose with heatless curls on the ends and a simple braided half-up with leaf ribbons, gems and/or small white flowers.

  • First variation (May 2014):
3-strand side braids braided with leaf ribbons and gathered at the back with a leaf clasp. Small green gems as decoration.

Texture: Subtle braidwaves and bendy rollers curls (which had transformed into very loose waves by the time this pic was taken):
  • Second variation (December 2014):
Lúthien is usually described as wearing flowers intertwined in her hair, so I finally got some small plastic flowers from an Etsy shop and added them to the half-up. This time I left the leaves aside and went for 3-strand side braids gathered at the back of the head in a half-up and adorned with some of these white flowers. 

This is a very blurry pic, but hey, hair's looking long :)!
Texture is, once again, braidwaves and heatless bendy rollers curls in the ends. Contrary to rag/bandanna curls, bendy rollers curls make my hemline look quite thinner than it actually is, which isn't necessarily 'bad' per se (I've been told it looks 'fairytale-ish' and 'ethereal', so I guess that's positive!), but seeing as I unfortunately am quite thick-hemline-obsessed, it does bug me a little xD

  • Third variation (September 2015):
Very similar to the second one, but with more flowers and leaf ribbons. Variation with braid here.

Like I said in the Lúthien braid post, I'll probably be doing a couple of video tutorials for my Lúthien styles soon-ish :)!
