Summer Hair Don't Care
Posted by Bun Queen on August 19, 2013 0 Comments
It is that time of year again and we all wished for it; summer. The heat is here in full force, and if you live in a humid climate your hair is probably sticking to your face and wrapping itself around your neck like a noose. We feel especially bad for those of you with bangs that paste themselves to your forehead, or curl in every direction because of your glistening face. Bun Queen would like to offer you a simple solutions that includes two things: hair donuts, and the ability to braid. While we can't braid each and everyone's hair, we can offer a hair bun accessory that won't slip out of your sweaty palms.
Ladies with bangs this first option is for you! Start with an extreme part on the right or left side of your head and starting from your hairline section off about an inch back into your hair. You will be doing a French braid so divide your hair into three sections closest to the start of your part. Depending on how you want the finished look, consider if you want the braid tight or slightly messy and lose. Braid away until you get to the opposite temple. From there stop the French braid and just braid the hair down and secure with a hair tie. Next, think of where you want to position your bun. High, low, side, etc.? Pull the hair into a ponytail including the braid, and remove the hair tie from the braid once it is safe inside your pony. Next use your hair donut to tame the rest of your hair into a bun. Again consider how you want the end look and roll accordingly. If you need instructions on using your hair donut visit our instructions page and watch Bun Queen’s video.
If you are missing the girl gene that enables you to braid hair try twisting the hair instead of braiding and repeat the same steps above. Or if you are a braiding queen, flip your head upside down and start a French braid at the base of your neck and braid the bottom half of your hair while upside down. Pull the remaining hair into a ponytail and create your topknot from there.
Still lost on what to do, and all these options seem hopeless? Do yourself a favor and stick to the basic sock bun, or get a bob.
