Although this was the first style we did I found this the trickiest so far! You use the same piece of hair on the left and right of each level so it needs to be quite long. It uses a repetitive figure of eight motion for the main body but it is easily adaptable to whatever look you're going for. For example you could make a bow at the to and then go onto the middle section; built it outwards to give it more dimensions; or create a different shape with the hair.
This one probably isn't to everyone's taste as it slightly reminds me of Medusa haha!! However I think it could be adapted to look really nice, for example adding some little flowers, pearls or gems to follow the shape of the hair. Also instead of twisting the hair you could make fishtail plaits. The tutor showed us how she used this effect on a bride recently, she used padding to make the bottom bigger and sit in the nape of the neck, and the top was more 'drapey' rather than twisted - it was lovely!

I'm looking forward to this weeks' which she showed us last week, an asymmetric plait which she finished in about 5/6 minutes!! I will put up the rest of the styles at the end of the course although follow me on Instagram (LooweezBx) for photos every week :)
