More Hair Play (Lovin’ My Buns!)

I am totally loving my updos. Today, I used one of my favorite hair clips…shown a little better on page 2 of this post. I found it at KMart of all places. Ok… let me stop cause they usually have some great hair accessories. It’s actually a hair fork with a hinged clip on top.  So since I’m on a creative mission to create a variety of buns, I decided to see what I could do with it. I think it turned out really cute!

Directions: This is going to be hard to describe but I’ll do my best.

  1. First, I gathered all my twists at the nape of my nect like I was going to make a low ponytail.
  2. Then I moved all the hair a little to the right and placed a hair stick against my hair. 
  3. Next I wrapped my twists around the stick from the bottom to the top, twice. I tucked the ends into the base of the twist.
  4. Then I twisted the stick so and stuck it down into my hair to secure it in place. Then I took the outer edge of the bun and secured it with the clip.


Ok… so you see the twists that I have hanging down at my temples? Well they were SUPPOSED to be Curlie Qs. No matter what, every time I try to wear these things, they never come out exactly like they’re supposed. Last night, I set them on flex rods. Unfortunately, I sweat in the scalp badly and dang if when I woke up on my left side, this twist was wet…yes from my body heat. Soooo it didn’t set right. Bummer. Nothing I could do about it. Well, I did pin it down somehow with a bobby pin so that it would be sticking out and making me look totally crazy. But dag, why can’t I have two perfect Curlie Qs at the same time.

I’ll try again tonight.











So what’s next? My twisted donut. So stay tuned for Even More Hair Play!

    I like your twists and your website is amazing. I haven’t permed my hair since 08/07. I am trying to get used to not seeing my hair relaxed. I had the 2 strands put in at a salon about eight weeks ago and I put them in myself about two weeks ago. I run into a problem at night because when I put my sleeping cap on, my hair shrinks and sticks up and out all kinds of ways. How can I keep my hair from doing that? Should I tie it down with a scarf? How do you keep the roots of your twists looking fresh?
