Take your ‘do to new hair-raising heights with our fun bun hair tutorial! We’ve all seen the sock bun tutorial, but with a little strategic teasing and pinning you can skip the sock without sacrificing fullness. It’s a lovely look for an outdoor wedding or Sunday brunch! Pair it with a flirty floral and you’re good to go! Follow the steps below to create a top knot that’s totally top notch!
1. Begin with a sleek high ponytail securing with a strong hair-tie.
2. Pull small sections of the pony straight-up and lightly mist with hairspray towards the base of the hair-tie.
3. While the hairspray is still tacky, fully backcomb each small section as you pull upwards.
4. Be sure to fully tease* the entire pony from top to bottom for the ultimate fun bun!
5. Start wrapping the ponytail into a bun. The main advantage to teasing the hair is that you can easily manipulate the shape as your are pinning it.
6. Depending on the thickness and length of your hair, you can make the bun as big and messy as you want it! Super Fun Bun!!
*Refer to our hair teasing blog for proper technique to not damage your hair while backcombing!
DIY Beaded Headpiece: Tired of your tiara? Try an elegant beaded crown instead for your upcoming prom or wedding. Nothing could be more feminine and Bohemian all at once!
Soft tape measure
18 gauge wire
24 gauge wire
Fresh flowers of your choice
Step 1: Using the soft tape measure, measure the circumference of your head where you would like the headpiece to lay. (Ours is based on a 24″ measurement.)
Step 2: Using the 18 gauge wire, measure three times your head measurement (ours was 72″ long) and clip from spool. Wrap this length of wire around itself to create an oval (three wires thick) the size of your head. To secure the ends, twist the last 1/2″ tightly around the loop twice, and clip off any excess.
Step 3: Decide your bead pattern in advance and lay them out. Measure a piece of the 24 gauge wire twice as long as your head measurement (ours was 48″ long). To get started, twist one end of the 24 gauge wire 2-3 times around your wire oval.
Step 4: Twine the thin wire around the oval until you get to where you want to place your first bead. Thread the bead on the wire and secure it by looping the thin wire tightly against the side of the bead. Continue beading, leaving as much or as little space between beads as you’d like.
Step 5: When you get to the end, wrap the wire tightly three times, and clip off the excess.
Step 6: Add fresh flowers of your choice by pinning them in your hair, or wiring them to the headpiece.
