First, I have to point out my standard bald area! :p
Now, let’s get on with this awesome hair style from michaelanoelledesigns! I love this style because it’s so easy, but it looks very clean and elegant. Plus get my close up out of the way. ;) Here’s the front!
It’s nice and simple, and better – it keeps stray hairs out of my eyes.
The left side had the smaller section of hair, and was the second piece I coiled. It does a weird dip, but I love the twist, and it says put all day!
My bun was positioned at the lower right side of my head. You can see the little tufts I missed – but I like the messy pieces!
The original bun
Here’s the finished product from michaelanoelledesigns! I think I finally did a pretty solid job. ;D Below is a dressed up photo from the same post – I think it looks totally different! I kept looking for evidence that it wasn’t the same, but didn’t find any.
Things I’ve learned
- Use the thicker section as the second coil to lessen “the dip”.
- Hairspray sections just before twisting to handle fly-aways.
- Don’t fill your hair with pins! A bun can be held up with 3 pins, especially when you’re going to wrap a second bun around it and use even more pins.
- Attempt the other bun: don’t pin the first coil, but wrap the second around it and pin so it can hang loosely.
