Bun Hairstyle

This bun hairstyle was inspired by an email that I got from Rihanna K. in New York.

What I love about this natural hair style is that most of the hair UP, which is a great thing.

However, it still have lots of color and "cuteness"!

Thanks so much for reading!

Cute and Protective!

I decided to go natural when my daughter was born and I really enjoy it. My hair has grown so much but I can’t say the same for her. I know the reason is because I don’t do protective hairstyles on her. I don’t mind wearing twists and braids but she hates the same style again and again. Could you please do a protective hairstyle that hasn’t been done before? Rihanna K.

Well, I don’t know if this hair-do has never been done before, but I’ve never seen anything like it and I love it a lot.

Thank you Rihanna for reaching out and good luck to both you and your daughter!

You’ll Need: Wide Tooth Comb, Rat Tail Comb, Hair Moisturizer, Beads, Hair Clips, Bobby Pins, Ponytail Holder

Take note of how I parted the hair

I did this on blow-dried, recently trimmed hair and I started by parting the hair from one ear all the way across to the other.

After that, part the hair again, from the hairline back to the other part as pictured above. Use clips or ponytails to keep all the hair as neat as possible.

Top row all finished

I did the front half of the cornrows on a slate, making them come back like they were in a ponytail or bun.

This is very important so take your time and get it as neat as you can.

The back cornrows are like braided mohawk cornrows

Now it’s on to the back cornrows, which should be like the picture above. To do them, part the hair straight back and clip one side out of the way for now.

Cornrow the hair towards the part until you’re out of room to cornrow, then braid them to the end. Repeat until finished with both sides.

All finished with the cornrows

Once you’re done with all the braids, it should look like this. I Dutch braided the cornrows up to the top of the head and secure with a ponytail holder.

I used bobby pins and string to secure the braids in a bun. And for a splash of color, I strung a couple flower beads on a string and threaded them through some of the braids in a random pattern.

Use bobby pins to tuck the braids in where you want them
