ROSE BUN – Long Straight Hair Styling Tutorial

This one comes handy when you are feeling too lazy or have too little time to deal with your hair. This will work for anyone who has hair enough to make a simple hand bun.

STEPS
Comb the full length of your hair down your back

Rose Bun

Twist the hair into a knot at the middle of the head

Rose Bun

Let the rest of the hair hang loose

Rose Bun

Now observe how a rope or a thread is coiled – turning in one direction only

Turn the loose hanging hair similarly

Rose Bun

Twist the coiled hair around the center formed by the knot

Rose Bun

Tuck the ends in and you have your perfect rose bun – see how it differs from a normal bun – the middle looks like a pouting rose bud while the coiled hair around it are like tightly formed petals.

Rose Bun

I will accessorise the rose bun with a rose-themed band. A band is a clever way to ensure that the tucked ends will not come loose from the bun.

Rose Bun

So this is how my hair looks finally.

Rose Bun

So I brushed the hair down, made the knot, coiled the loose hair like a rope and twisted it around the knot till the ends are tucked in. All done in a little over 3minutes.

Lol no I don’t feel like doing any styles when I straighten my hair. It feels awesome to just leave them open like its your natural hair :yelo:

you know my punjabi frnd has her hair at the same length as yours. She always ties it in a bun and comes out coz it gives her pain if she leaves it open for too long :|

yeah jinal,

even i hv layers…. i use a soft net…. which is practically invisible, and then just prick out a few strands here and there with a tail comb for a slightly ‘let-me-loose-after-a-hug’ kinda look…. :disdain: :smirk: :kissed: :kissed: :monkey2: :monkey2: :music: :music:
