School Hairstyles - the Bun


This is the way I wear my hair for school about 85% of the time!

So here's how you do it...

Step 1. Backcomb the hair that surrounds your face.

Step 2. Tip your head forward and, using a bobble, put your hair into a ponytail, what ever height you want. (I usually have a quite high bun)

Step 3. Then backcomb all of your ponytail, the bigger the better!

Step 4. Get another bobble and double over the ponytail.

Step 5. Then you can either leave your bun as it is or get a few bits of the hair that's not folded and wrap it round your bobble.

Step 6. Either clip any fringe bits back or leave them.

Please don't forget to design a piece of clothing for me to make!! For more information see the previous blog post or go to...
