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.
- First, I gathered all my twists at the nape of my nect like I was going to make a low ponytail.
- Then I moved all the hair a little to the right and placed a hair stick against my hair.
- 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.
- 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!
