We would have had this up yesterday... but we had a very long shopping trip with lots of people stopping us to know how we did this neat hair do. Really it is just Got time in reverse (kind of.). I wonder how it would look if you did Got time and Did this kind of bun instead of the kind I originally did on this. Wow- that might be a little too much.
First thing you are going to want to start with is the pony tail. I've had a few people ask about making a smooth pony tail. Or at least how I make mine smooth. And it is really tricky. This is what I have found to work for me. So that is my pony tail. Thank you Big Bro for video taping it. Sorry about the finger that slipped in the way. He's only seven, so I say pretty dang good job!
So we have our starting pony tail--- oh side note--- I threw in some gel for this hair do at the very beginning to keep the fly ways to a minimum.
From your starting pony tail you are going to make five or six little pony tails. I used bright yellow rubber bands to help you see what I am doing here.
From there you are going to split them each in half and combine them together. Same as any weaving we do.
But I will slow it down and show you on our next level around the hair.This is a close up shot of what you are doing.
Join them in the middle and secure. This will go all the way around until you have no more to divide or add.
Once you do this a few times it pretty much looks like a bun. Other then those ones we have secured with those mini clips. Which BTW you totally don't have to use those. Just if you would like to use them feel free. I used them just so you could see what was happening better.
Here's the REALLY fun part of this hair do- If at this point she has been a snot while doing here hair send her into the bathroom looking like this and she is not likely to ever give you problems again. Just Kidding, my son totally thought we should leave her hair like this though. I think he called it "amazing".
