As I mentioned in last week's post, one of my hair goals for the year is to do more protective styling on loose natural hair. Usually, my go-to natural hair styles are a bun or Grecian halo/twist/crown (whichever you call it). But over the weekend, I decided to jazz up my bun a little bit. I had seen the style on a lot of people, but it never occurred to me to try it myself. Since I had downtime, I went on Youtube, watched a couple of tutorials, and here are my results.
I used 1 pack of Femi Afro Braid, but you can use any Marley hair or kinky hair you have. As shown, all you need is the hair, bobby pins and a couple of hair bands.
- STEP 1: Pull your hair into a bun
- STEP 2: Pull the extensions through a hair band, so that the hair band is in the middle.
- STEP 3: Using the hair band that has the extensions, attach them to your bun.
- STEP 4: Wrap the extensions around your bun as desired and pin in place.
For the second hairstyle, I decided to leave out some of my own hair in front and tucked it in. What do you think?
Have a nice weekend!
