HOW TO; TOP BUN WITH FAUX HIGHLIGHTS

Hi Ladies,
How Y'all doing? a la Wendy Williams!! Well its been a while since I posted a tutorial and its not like I've not had ideas but its more a situation of how many hats I am juggling at the moment but I am not complaining,..the Lord is my strength!!

Before I start this tutorial, who like me is counting down to the end of the 6 INCHES OF GROWTH CHALLENGE?!! I am so excited to see who of the 32 ladies that entered will win the $100 prize, who will closely follow behind and win compensation prices...This year's hair journey has been filled with major ups and downs for most of us but the important thing remains to keep your head up, be consistent, learn the right techniques and be patient!!!

Now unto the tutorial :)

P.s I cut quite a bit of my bone straight ends over the weekend, I'm cutting them gradually till all of my hair is texlaxed...so here's what I'm working with; In the pictures below I just loosened, moisturized and sealed my hair after leaving it in two plaits under my wig since after Saturday's weekend treat.

So Let's Begin...

Step 1- Comb all your hair down and smooth it out

Forced smile, Long day!!


Gather your hair to the top to gauge how high you want the bun.


Its time for the clip in extensions or if you want a more permanent bun, you can sew a track on a single flat plait.




For Clip in extensions, simply clip the extensions in middle of where your bun will be and the opposite direction towards your forehead.



Gather the hair and extensions together making sure that the surrounding hair especially at the back  and sides adequately cover the extension tracks.




Wrap the hair round in a bun... if you are using a doughnut enhancer, slip it over the hair and wrap the hair over the doughnut enhancer, distribute the extensions round the bun so they look like highlights and tuck them away...

 Smooth out your edges and Voila!!!


BLURRY CLOSEUP!!




As you can see it's super easy to do and a fun way to dress up the often boring protective style that is a bun!!
Mail me if you try this style out, I hope to try more variations of this style and you know where I will be posting them...on Instagram!! #soaddictive!!


Thanks for stopping by!!
