Sophisticated Bun Series: Loose Ended Double Bun

I just love double buns. Earlier in the series, I did a horizontal figure 8 bun that looks a lot like a double bun.

Today, I’m recreating a traditional double bun but I’m leaving it with loose, exposed ends for a slightly messier look:

Items Used:

  • Satin scrunchy
  • Bobby pins
  • Spray bottle with a mixture of water and conditioner
  • Aloe vera gel
The Technique
I did this style on dry, somewhat dirty hair. To help make the hair more manageable I
  • Spritzed hair with water/conditioner mix
  • Smoothed edges with aloe gel
  • Secured hair into a ponytail with satin scrunchy
  • Created double bun using bobby pins. In order to achieve a fuller bun, I sectioned the ponytail into two and criss crossed vs. wrapping in a chignon first.
  • Pinned each section to create the bun.

      :-) Yes a bun will be the staple style this winter. That an some puffy afro twists!

  5. I am loving this sophisticated bun series. I am practicing doing mine because they either come out too neat or too messy. Variety is what I need, but I want to wear a bun because it’s classy and sleek.

    Thanks for sharing, Michelle :-)

      Thanks Dre. I’m usually the same way. Sometimes I have to do them over LOL to get the look I want. Now, if I could only be a little more creative :-)
