For my daughter's 4th grade production of Twelfth Night, I was asked to help with the hair-do's. . . mainly because many of the girls required a bun and I know of a fairly simple way of creating a nearly perfect bun. Every time I completed a bun, parents and students would ooh and aah at the finished product and then ask to watch the process to learn how to replicate it.
So, I thought a tutorial was in order!
Follow these steps below along with the pictures of this gorgeous blonde head of hair!
Materials: A brush or comb, 1 strong rubberband, a dozen or so bobbi-pins, hairspray (if desired)
|Brush out the hair and put it in a smooth ponytail in the location that you want the bun.|
|Divide the hair in half, creating a horizontal division of the hair.|
|Roll the top half into a tight curl towards the head using your fingers. Make sure the ends are tucked inside the curl.|
|Pin the curl down to the rest of the hair using 2 pins that criss cross. Do this on both sides of the curl.|
|Repeat this process with the bottom section of hair, rolling in down and in towards the hair.|
|Pin this curl the same as you did the top one, on both sides.|
|Carefully pull the ends of the curls in to meet eachother, creating a continuous loop, and pin this in place. Spray with hairspray if desired for added security.|
|Here's my beautiful hair model from the front.|
|This is an example of what the top curl should look like as you gently pull the ends to create a half circle.|
