So, by now we're kinda bored with the usual dance bun. We decided to try and doll it up a bit. What better way to doll up some hair than with cute yarn?
Here's the step by step:
You will need
Separate the top portion at the ear level and make four small ponytails. Dont' tighten them all the way just yet.
Split the top portion of the ponytail, making a "tunnel" for the yarn.
Slip the yarn through the loops and tighten the ponytails now.
Braid each piece using the 2 yarn pieces and the 1 ponytail to make your three parts. You can do your own versions here if you prefer, a twist braid, a 5 strand... whatever you fancy.
Release the top portion and bring all hair into a ponytail.
Attach the bun mold. For more info on how to put in the bun mold, go here.
Spread the hair around the mold leaving out the braided/yarn pieces. If you did more than four, you could mix them all in. Since I only did the four, I chose to place them more carefully.
Pin them where you want 'em. I then twisted the extra hair and wound it around the bun for a clean look. Tada. All done.
Use ribbon instead of yarn.
Make more braids
Do twist braids or 5 strand braids
Use clip in color hair extensions
Use your imagination and let me know if you try this one.
