Works on wavy, straight or mildly curly hair, and requires soft layers. It can be worn with or without bangs (fringe) both straight-across or side bangs can look good. Hair must be longer than shoulder length (extensions can be used). It probably works on wigs, but I haven't tried it.
Similar to Hizaki's hairstyle above, although more asymmetric.
For wavy or curly hair
1. Put hair in a side part, and sweep it over your shoulder, away from the part.
2. Pulling from the side where the part is, grab a thick layer of hair, pull it to the other side of your head (opposite from the hair part) and combine it with hair from this side. This should not use all of your hair, just a top layer. Using a hair elastic, tie it into a high ponytail. It is okay if it is to the back a little, but closer to the front than not, and it should be on the opposite side of your part.
3. Using a bobby pin the same colour as your hair, lift up the ponytail and gently pin higher up on your hair. Use more pins if needed. Shorter layers should become more visible now, and you can fluff them up, to make them the curls taller and up towards your face.
4. You're pretty much done! Just add a hair accessory if you'd like, like a flower, mini hat or bow.For straight hair
Follow instructions as above, but because your hair is straight and won't fluff up in a curly way, backcomb the layers within the ponytail gently to make them stick up. This will have a slightly harder look, but nothing too extreme. It would suit Gothic hime types best.
have fun ~~~
