I thought that any fellow Lord of the Rings fans might find this interesting. Dreamweaver Braiding has instructions for braids like Legolas wears in the movies. I think that style would look great on anyone with long hair, male or female. Now whether I could actually manage to do that style on my hair is another matter entirely.
What I'd really like to know is how to do my hair like Arwen's in the Two Towers, during the flashback with her and Aragorn. It looks like a half up style with part of it sort of pinned up, but I wasn't able to get a very good look at it. Maybe I'll be able to see it better when I have the DVD, and can pause and zoom in.

I tried to do this on my roommate's hair (he had long hair until recently) but his hair was just too fine and thin. It kept slipping out of any braid before I could even get to the end of the hair. Argh!
But I would love to get this style on myself! Little accent braids and such are so pretty!! Not only that, they seem to keep hair out of one's face.

I should have previewed before posting. I thought the link would work. And apparently we can't edit after someone has replied. I wouldn't have expected that, since most boards like this let you edit as many times as you want.
Anyway, here's the link again, hopefully it will work this time.

Maybe I should just stick with using html, instead of these board codes.

Thanks for the link Sarah (and thank you for re-linking it...must admit I was too lazy to cut and paste...hmm how sad is that ;) )
I dont think I will be able to do that to my own hair (or find anybody who would/could).
But I think Im going to try it but with an ordinary braid. Everything more than three strands make my hands shake ;)

His braid is really pretty. I will definitely try this out. Thanks.

We saw the first movie together last December and he decided that Legolas was WAY cool. He asked me to braid his hair and he went around the house with his bow and quiver for days afterward. :D

I bet it looked good on him, too! :) Now all I need to find is a (grown-up) guy with pretty long hair! (OK... so that's not a requirement... but it would be nice. Sigh.)

*grin* There's a guy in my gaming group with to-die-for hair - he's either Native American or Hispanic, and he's got this really thick, smooth, glossy dark brown hair a little longer than BSL (not that guys wear bras, but you get the idea)... I always like to try to play with his hair, though he never leaves the styles in *laugh*.... I'm going to see if I can get him to sit still long enough for me to do the Legolas braids on him... *evil grin*
This will be fun!

I did it on my husband (who has curly dark hair - about 25 inches).
The first time I forgot to only gather from one side when making the lace braids, which did not work so well.
I really like the look when comes out right...there are not too many creative looks for men's long hair.
Herringbone braids, for whatever reason, I can only work on someone else.
