Solutions to bun & updo quiz!


Hair bun 1 we made of hair falls B - natural curls, 55 cm/ 22 inches long, volume size M

Natural curls provide lush volume - your bun is lightweight and made super quickly! 

hair falls with natural curls make this layered bun - 2 layers only

This is the first step to making the bun: The attached hair piece is divided into two strands. Each strand is wrapped around the junction (meaning start of your own ponytail with the attached hair falls) and secured with a few hair pins. Don't you think that this half bun variant here with only one strand pinned up is a gorgeous hairstyle as well?

Tip for an even hair bin: Wrap one strand clockwise and the other counter-clockwise!

Tip for even more volume: The more layers, the more bouffant your bun! If you part the hair fall into more than 2 strands you can even pin these 3, 4 or 5 strands in a more bouffant way and get a larger layered updo!

Solution to the additional questions: Hair falls A won't make a fancy bun! 

Hair falls A have very straight hair, straight hair texture won't make a fancy bun! Technically it's doable, of course, but you would not really call the result a hair bun - rather a little knot or something similar, but surely not a fancy hairstyle. If your own hair is straight you know exactly what I am talking about. It's usually slippery, won't hold well not even with many hair pins and lacks volume. Especially volume is necessary for bouffant hair buns and hair stylists have a super simple trick for this - hair pieces! In case the customer doesn't want a hair piece parts of their own hair are backcombed to have more volume. Another option is adding larger curls or tiny crimped waves with a curling iron. In addition you need lots of styling foam or hair spray to make these stylings last for a day and all these treatments are not good to your own hair. You don't think you would be able to attach a hair piece? Compared to all these classic volume treatments attaching a hair piece is indeed super easy, much quicker and naturally way better for your own hair!

Bun 2: Braid C - our 50 cm/ 20 inches long Fantasy Braid is the solution!

The two braids in the braid make this bun look especiall elaborate and fancy - only you know the trick behind your hairstyle!

Styling the bun means nothing more than draping the attached braid around it's attachment, tucking the end under and securing the hairdo with a few hair pins! 

The braid in the instructions is a different one, but the instructions are the same for all braids. If you are using a very longbraid or a thinner braid but of same length as the one in the picture (50 cm/ 20 inches), then you need to wrap it around the attachment more than once to put up all the braid into a bun. This is the only difference! 

Pin up a braid - the most easy, natural and quickest bun solution!

Chignon 3 we made of a 50 cm/ 20 inches long Elf Braid - according to the instructions above!

This neatly braided bun pattern is a simple elf braid hair piece!

Hair bun 4 - these braided tribal buns we made using hair piece A = the two braided braids, 50 cm/ 20 inches long!

After attaching the braided braids to your own pigtails you pin them up exactly as it is shown in the pictures with with the black haired doll and the brown braid above!

These tribal style bun presented by model Apsara Habiba look especially natural, because the braided braids are made of natural wavy hair. So actually we have two solutions here, because hair falls D are the same braids just undone and in a different hair color, of course.

The long braid (hair piece C) could make a pair of buns due to its length, but they would be right next one another.

Use braids of wavy hair for natural tribal and boho style hair buns!
