The bouffant-like effect can be created with back combing of the underneath layers. The imperfect appeal of the strands that are somewhat wild add to the fun aspect. Starting out with unwashed hair is the best way to achieve a look like this one and what better way to do things up in a hurry and still look awesome. The band is placed right at the forehead and tied at the nape of the neck with tails that trail. This model has fair skin and pale make-up. Her big silver hoop earrings are a nice accent.
