I received an email update from a natural site I follow and contained in the email was a tutorial for this style. Now, my hair isn’t quite as long as the woman in the video so I had to improvise a tad for my length. It’s my new favorite bun style. I’ve received a few compliments on this style already.
Mine was done on a fresh braid-out, but the key is the hair has to be stretched, drawn up into a puff, and loosely gathered at the ends with elastic, or if your hair falls a little short like mine, loosely pinned at the base–or in the center–of the puff.
