Regency/Victorian do with feathers: "Mary Crawford"

I realized I had never posted a do with feathers before, so here is one. Feathers were enormously popular throughout the 1800's and can be used in many ways. Here is my version with a high "figure 8" twist (not a bun) and a curl. It's the perfect do for when you are playing a flirt or snob, like Mary Crawford from "Mansfield Park." I cut the hair by my ears so it would curl better, but you don't have to do this. You can do without curls by the ears.
