This is a variation of the gala dinner quickie which, instead of having a large puff on the top of your head, bobby pins turn it into a sleek look.
What you need:
Timeframe: One day
Time to prep: Ten minutes
- A long ribbon to tie up your hair (silk)
- Your favourite oil (I use the afrorage hair massage oil for my hair)
- Something to fluff out your hair, e.g large wide toothed comb, I however use my fingers which work like a charm every time
- Bobby pins, loads of bobby pins
Step 1: Start with free, softened hair. De-tangle your hair if you must, using your fingers or a wide toothed comb. The looser your hair is the less it will tangle when exposed to the elements
Step 2: Rub your favourite oil on your hands and run it through your hair to give it some shine and a healthy look
Step 3: Experiment with pulling all your hair to the top left or top right of your head to create a small puff, when you find a position you like slowly curl the ribbon around the puff so that all hair is held and is secure.
Step 4: Tuck the ends of the puff underneath themselves to create a bun. Make sure no hair is loose so as to create a uniform look. (My buns always tend to be uneven!)
Step 5: Spray with your hold oil and head to the party!
