HAIR: HOW TO DO A TOP BUN WITH KINKY HAIR

HAIR: HOW TO DO A TOP BUN WITH KINKY HAIR
My hair has been relaxer-free for six years. I can still remember the day I decided to go back to my (curly and kinky) roots. Ever since, it’s been weaves and braids for me; both styles are perfect to protect and nurture growth. Admittedly, it’s been a slow but rewarding journey and I’ve grown to understand my texture.

In August, I decided to straighten my hair to experiment with a new look. Until then, I was unsure of my hair length after transitioning back to natural. Straightening was a quick fix solution to updating my style yet it gave me the chance to shift between my natural texture whenever I wanted. Although I liked having straight hair, whenever regrowth started to make an appearance I’d run for an up do bun at lightening speed.
However, three months later and I’ve exhausted styling my own hair. I’m missing my long locks and a reunion with extensions is called for. Especially with winter approaching fast, I need to prepare for the impending cold. Also, as a side note – did you know hair extensions double up as a type of scarf? Okay, so this may be slightly unorthodox, but the winter struggle is real! If you’re ever in dire need of warmth, extensions can be your salvation: it could keep the cold chills away from your neck!

I know I’ve shared with you my next hairstyle inspiration and in fact shown you the style on instagram, but I thought I’d demonstrate how I’ve been doing my hair for the last three months. It’s a style tailored to natural hair and flexible with or without hair extensions. You’ll need 2-3 hair bands, a few bobby pins (if necessary), a hair donut and a brush.
  • To achieve a donut bun, start by combing your hair and tying your hair into a ponytail.
  • Place the hair donut over your ponytail.
  • Bend over, allowing your hair to flow over the donut bun.
  • Grab another hair band and tie over the bun to secure it.
  • Lastly, I use the third hair tie to tuck away any excess hair strands under the bun
  • You can opt for the bobby pin method; wrap and tuck

The great thing about a bun is you can style it in so many ways. If you’re looking for a casual look, ditch the brush and use your hands to gather your tresses. It always looks effortlessly cool and natural. I like my bun on the top on my head instead of behind it (I look bald otherwise!)
