Fem!Sherlock Hair Styles?

Well, I plan on cosplaying this fall and winter... as in daily!

I've got a lovely long woolen gothic coat with the collar up (black though, not dark grey)... but I even sew a red button hole into it. A long blue scarf, a deerstalker and leather gloves... I've even got the PSoS

But I've been wondering what to do about my hair. 

Mainly my costume is not a perfect replica of our Sherlock... this is what I personally think he would have picked if he was a woman.

I assume it should be an 'easy' hair style that still looks neat? Thinking how Sherlock has his curls that (what I remember from having short hair) doesn't take too long to fix with some product... 

I have long black hair (dyed)... and I know pigtails are cute under the deerstalker, and so is a messy braid. 

But does anyone have better tips? I suppose I could also find a way to hide my hair in the deerstalker to make it appear I've got shorter hair (but to be perfectly honest I LOVE my long hair and it's a bit of a rebel thing for me... so I'm not too happy to hide it away)

Re: Fem!Sherlock Hair Styles?

I think you have already got some good ideas.

I always thought that Sherlock would have short hair as a woman, too, but obviously that shouldn't put any limits on what you want to do.
Hm...I think it would look good down, too. I'll let you know if I think of anything else, but I am not the best in this area since I wear my hair down all the time,lol.

If you are comfortable posting one, I would love to see a photo of your outfit, it sounds cool.

Re: Fem!Sherlock Hair Styles?

Thank you! When it gets cold enough I'll be taking a picture! We've got indian summer here... and it's pretty thick wool on the coat lol. 

Oh I should have said, having it down is not an option for me... I hate when it gets stuck in things or fly in my mouth (why I normally have it in a braid, ponytail or pigtails...)  

I've googled femSherlock and most of them have their hair down too... hmm

Re: Fem!Sherlock Hair Styles?

Maybe you will just have to experiment with any ideas you get (and Sherlock loves experimemts!)
Also, going back to your first post... What's PSOS?

Re: Fem!Sherlock Hair Styles?

I don't do cosplay (although I admire it!), but I was just thinking that Irene mirrored Sherlock's hair very well with her updo.  I think that style would look great, although it would be difficult not to mess up with the deerstalker!  The other styles that I think would look Sherlocky are slicked back (perhaps in a French braid?  Or ponytail or pigtail.) like Victorian Sherlock, or a mass of curls - extra curly and held with hairspray might keep it out of your face?
