One Sunday while I was teaching Primary last year, one of the little girls came with her hair braided up fancy like this. It was so pretty I had to draw it!
I’ve often wondered whether a Tauren’s mane grows just from a relatively narrow strip along the crest of the neck, like a horse’s mane, or if the long hair grows from all over the dorsal surface of the neck, more like a lion’s mane. This hairstyle, a fusion of cornrow braiding and how a dressage horse’s tail is plaited, assumes the latter mode.
I’m looking forward to how the model renovations will affect hairstyles. I’m hopeful that the updated hairstyles will have more realistic detailing of the strands and locks, especially for styles with tails and braids. I also hope that the new models will eventually bring wider availability of current braided hairstyles and more fun braided hairstyles in general at the Barbershop. They did say at Blizzcon that they have designed styles that they haven’t yet released, didn’t they?
P.S. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could have our own personal Barbershop in our Garrison?
