BUN OF THE MONTH : The Stuffed Bun

Hello ladies,

I am back with this pictorial as part of my bun of the month series.

I have always liked the idea of a huge mega bun that looked bigger than my head but It can be a little difficult to get relaxed hair to create these kind of styles without the help of a donut or other hair accessories that create volume and shape.

Although I don’t mind using hair accessories to create styles I always knew there would be a way I could do a mega bun with just my own hair, ie without any stuffing.
I call this the style the stuffed bun because I use my own hair to create the stuffing and it works like a charm.

I have only created this style twice and have never really worn it out properly and I am not sure I should.  This bun actually looks much much bigger in person and both my mum and sister kept giving me the side eye when I created it for this pictorial..  My sister eventually said ” okay, I think that bun is actually way too big”

What do you think ladies? should I actually wear this style out someday and should it  be reserved for blogging purposes only?

      Hey Harriet, thank you so much. It makes me happy to know that you like Hairducation. I am more than happy to share and its never too late to start taking care of your hair.

      Your hair doesn’t need to be that long to try it. You should be able to create it with shoulder length hair. Try it and let me know how it goes.

    Doesn’t look too big to me, it look lovely. I actually like it better than most small top knot buns I see. Where it out!

    Of course you should wear it!!!! It looks really nice. If you don’t wear it, maybe someone else will just steal it…
