One of the goals I had for 2016 was to experiment with my natural hair. Last year I was on the verge of relaxing my hair a few times, but some how, some way, I managed to make it through. Now that my hair is getting a little longer and I’m learning to not depend solely on what other Youtubers are doing with their natural hair, I’m actually figuring out how to manage my own.
Twisted Faux Bun
This is a twisted faux bun style, that I achieved on stretched hair with a ton of bobby pins and a bit of afro twist braiding hair.
I parted my hair into 3 parts with 2 smaller sections in the front and 1 large section in the back for the bun. This style would also look great with a side part and a larger twist across the front. If you don’t know how to attach synthetic hair to your natural hair and create a bun, I will link my tutorial (here) to hopefully help you out. If you’re still having some issues, then just try a few other Youtube videos until you can grasp it.
It probably took me about 30 minutes to create these flat twist in the front of my head. The left twist came easy, but trying to get an identical flat twist on the right side of my head was an ordeal. Eventually, I got it to look how I wanted and I just bobby pinned the tail ends of my twist back towards my bun.
I’ve really been enjoying buns lately, and I can tell that once my hair gets longer, a high bun will be my go-to protective style.
I hope you are having a great start to the week! Maybe you can try this style out if you’re looking for a bit of natural hair inspiration.
