    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!

    Very simply braided (because otherwise is too much work and time for this thick mane :look:)

    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. :)

    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

    Hello All! :hiya: (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.

    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.

    Thank you!

    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!
