One Bun, Nine Looks

Standard

As many of you know, I am a fan of flower hair clips and I provided a tutorial for making your own a few weeks ago. So, I just had to share this pic that demonstrates how you can use flowers to jazz up and change the look of a single protective style.  It’s a great accessory for the style challenged=)!!  So, if you can’t find the flowers you want, hit your local craft store (Michael’s, JoAnn Fabrics, etc.) and search the “gardens” for your perfect accessory.  Enjoy!!

Flowers pictured:

  1. Peonie

Bouffant Updo (Video Tutorial)

Standard


One of my GOC friends and fellow WordPress blogger, Rece of AHairStory, posted a style that she tried after seeing TiaShauntee’s version of an updo inspired by MissVaughn. TiaShauntee, of Her Best Hair, remixed the style, which used Marley braiding hair, by cornrowing and twisting her own hair. Rece then remixed TiaShauntee’s version by twisting her hair rather than cornrowing it. Well, who was I to stop the inspiration train from chugging along?!?! LOL! So, I decided to try the style on an old, undefined TnC that I’d worn bunned with Goody Spin Pins most of the week. I also decided to film the results! So, here is my video tutorial of the style and a slide show of the final result because I kind of cut the top of my head off and I forgot to put a light in the room (I was rushing to get out of the door for work!!). Hope you still get the picture and, if you’d like me to re-film it, just let me know in the comments below! It was a pretty easy style to accomplish and I can try it again when I’m not on the run=)!!
