The bun in pic#3 is gorgeous! How'd you do it? Is it braided or twisted?
A messy bun held together with a pin is my PS.. Sometimes I will smooth the edges with ORS styling pudding!
It's several twists. I got it from Tracyee's site and she calls it her signature bun.
Very simply braided (because otherwise is too much work and time for this thick mane )
Also the picture in my signature is a full weave ps from last April.
Hey girlie, give it a try. It only takes a few minutes. I always do this style on wet hair. Please share some pics if you give it a try.
My protective style for today.
I love doing this style. It's fun and cute. You are rockin' it girlie.
DesignerCurls what wig is that? It's really cute.
These styles are so PRETTY!! Feeling inspired
tru4reele that's the mommy wig! I am not a wig person but I so like that particular one!
So, has anyone tried a new protective style yet?
There are gorgeous protective styles in this thread.
Hi Allandra! What is your hair type? I think you might be a hair twin for me, lol. I have never been able to decide what my type was (my guess is 4a though) but my texture looks alot like yours. That's a great protective style
I'm going to need a tutorial for that high bun. It is too cute.
Hello All! (Long-time lurker, recent subscriber).
This is the closest thing to a protective style that I have been wearing in recent weeks. I pulled the sides of my hair up and pinned them down, tucking in the ends. Please excuse the extra bobby pin in my hair in the last pic, I didn't realize it was there until later. The back of my hair is tucked under with bobby pins to protect my ends, almost like a faux bobb. It could have been done a little neater but I hope you get the idea.
This has been my protective style since Dec. PS, I love all the bun styles you ladies have put up! So beautiful!
This looks cute. Was it very easy to do?
Wow, that is beautiful. Did you do that? I love it.
Thanks! It was very easy. Pinning up a section of your hair from each side kind of creates a natural "hump", at least on my hair which is currently grazing shoulder length. Then just tuck the ends under in the back with bobby pins. A nice bun in the back would probably also be cute.
Allandra.... I wore my hair like that all summer and fall. My problem came in the fall, I guess it for dry, but my hair got very fuzzy, even though I tied it up at night. I had a lot of short hairs in the middle like breakage. How do you keep the fuzz down and keep of smooth without redoing it every other day? I do 4 cornrows now and still get fuzz. I try to only take my hair down once a week
I just tie it up at night, and in the morning I mist it with plain water. Also, I don't toss and turn at night (so that probably helps). My mom (RIP) used to say I was the neatest sleeper she knew lol.
That style was inspired by the bun in a thread entitled "Ballerina Bun Remix". I would supply the link, but I can't on my phone.
Yep, its takes about 45min. I do it on wet hair. I do the back part cornrowed up first, then the top. It lasts!

Thanks so much for this thread. I got a chance to try one of these styles posted, last night.
I can cornrow, but I can't cornrow up.
