I was going to look for a picture of a young, brown-haired woman with a single braid, preferably wearing medieval clothing, and post it as a profile photo for my character. One would think it would be relatively easy to find a medievally dressed brunette on Google with a braid (just one) down her back, or over her shoulder, or something!  But no. It would seem that every young female gracing Google Images in quasi-medieval garb is either a blonde or a flaming redhead, and/or has more braids than an octopus has tentacles.  I can just imagine my Aliset at the start of every adventure.  "Excuse me, Bynw, I've got to braid my hair first."

Bynw:  "OK, roll a 2D6 to see how many minutes this is going to take.  No, wait, make that a hundred-sided die.  Two hundred-sided dice if you plan to stick flowers in all those braids too...."

Aliset: "Screw it! Ain't no adventurer got time for that!"   ;D

Or this alternate scenario:

Bynw: "You all wake up with a start, even though it's still an hour from dawn, because your sentry has alerted you that the enemy has snuck up on you unawares and is just now cresting the hill 50 feet away. What are you doing?"

Wash: "I'm grabbing my sword and shield."

Darcy: "I quickly climb up a tree to hide and get a height advantage on our attackers."

Aliset: "I'm still braiding my fluorescent red hair."

Aliset takes an arrow from the exasperated Game Master as the enemy descends upon the campsite....

I have now downloaded the rules.  Hopefully, I won't have too many questions....

I am just home from the dentist, a not so fun way to spend a day off. I read the above and I break into a laugh.
Dear ladies, how I needed that!

Evie see if any of this photos works
One braid but a black and white image from the back  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/457185799646531659/

Burnett, hair may be braided.  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/457185799657256507/

I think her hair is braided.  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/457185799653157886/

My favorite for your Aliset:
A few semi-permenent braids to keep the bangs back. but no time to braid the rest.  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/457185799655146103/

Unless your looking for that true sorcerers look.  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/ASVh4SJja0wK2qlkBi00lfgXvuTsbeVt8lu4FdXm-3eVKH9YxIknalw/

Love it.

Here's a picture with directions for a style involving TWO braids, and it's from the 15th C., so maybe a bit late.   She's shown putting a headdress on over the style, but it might work, and she has brown hair.

"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Laurna's first link (the black and white picture) comes closest to what I was looking for, plus she's wearing a gown that would fit the right general era too. Although if you look at my character profile, I've added a picture now.... ;)

I didn't see this one before, but this could work also.
