We’ve all been here the failed braid-out. You didn’t let your hair dry your hair has no definition …what do you do? Three basic styles ever every natural should know. First one the basic puff. you can do this with a stretched out hair
tie, stockings or a ribbon for this one.. ..today I’m just using a stretched out hair tie. I simply put it over my puff holding as .. ..much of my hair as I could. And that’s
it ! once I’m done I simply tug at the top
to tighten it. And that’s it! All you do to .. ..transition once you take that hairband off, you give your hair a quick shake. Second style is .. .. the basic bun. I like to do my buns up high so I’m using the same hair tie .. .. to secure my hair up high. Being sure that all of the hair is through the hair tie. I then go ahead and smoothe it .. .. up as much as I could. I take the hair,
all of the ends bringing them together. every single one of the ends I just bring them together, holding firmly with the other hand. And now.. ..to get the bun how I want I just begin twisting to secure it. And I twist, and I twist until the hair is.. ..completely secured. I then position it against my scalp where I want it to lay .. .. you want it to lay in a bun direction, Its a bun type style so your just twisting it and just smoothing it in the middle. You want to try to get as close to the
scalp but not really because the idea .. ..is to have a big bun so it doesn’t necessarily have to be against your scalp. You just use two.. .. bobby pins and place it like an ‘x’. About those “twirlies” There you have it, that’s your basic bun. And the third style is my absolute favorite If I want a more elegant look.This is an updo. So I’m going to have to turn around.. ..for this in order for you to see it. Your starting out on a braid-out or a hairstyle that some type shrunken .. ..so your going to have some sort of parts. So what I’m doing is just feeling for the parts ..and pulling my hair across each other so your just feeling for where your hair naturally separates and your cris crossing it using one hand to pull .. the hair against the others. While the other (hand) is securing it. and you just continue to do this all the way up
