I Must Do Betty Draper's Up-do.
Still images were captured from the show Mad Men. Betty Draper | Francis is played by actress January Jones. In this scene, Betty Draper is meeting Don Draper for dinner in Italy.
Her hair has been up-done with a half bun on top of her head for support. She doesn't have that much hair so I would say some, or parts of her hairstyle are probably hair-pieces, extensions, or add-ons. It is quite a "look" with the O-mighty-bun and long roll across her head. I love the smooth and swept to the side heavy bang - this feature softened the contrast of the bun somewhat.
She wore the hairstyle well, not graceful - because of the costume they chose for her. I believe they were going for the sexy and seductive look rather than the soft and romantic look. Although, the lighting in this scene and the person whom she met with concoct a combination of romantic, sexy and elegant. I love it!

As for the show, it started out a little slow with a lot of concentration on Peggy Olson. But as the episodes went on, we saw a lot more of the other characters and their personalities, such as the beauty Betty Draper here. Her character became less likable as the shows went on, but I still like that Betty has faults like real humans do, or like we all do. If you haven't seen Mad Men, give it a try when you have some time to kill.Here are Self Sagacity's Thursday Two Questions #170
