Thinking I need to hit some wig shops and could use hints for ensuring proper styling...

I can't remember seeing one, but as far as I recall you'll basically need two low, tightly braided braids, which are then wrap up and around their base and cross over to end under the other to form an infinity loop. (Anyone wants to correct me? I haven't studied this style all that much).

And of course, there's the version with the smaller braid made from her forehead hair wrapped in suede/leather cord. These are also hidden under the braided buns.

That sounds about right.

When I do mine, I put my hair in low pigtails and add two very long extensions. Next I braid the extensions/real hair pigtail, all the way down, securing at the bottom with a elastic. Wrap one up and and around the crown of the head, securing with bobby pins. Then wrap the 2nd up and around behind the first and secure with more bobby pins. Then I make the looped buns with the tails and lots of bobby pins. Took a bit to figure it all out, but it's actually not too hard.

Hope that helps.
