|Step 1: Lay out your form and your hair. |
Make sure to fold the hair so that it equals the length of the form.
|Step 2: Sew the tracks together if you have a hard time keeping them straight.|
Then sew the hair to the form.
|Step 3: Roll the hair around the form and then snap the ends together.|
|Step 4: Spread the hair out to create an even bun.|
|Step 5: Carefully flip the it over and bobby pin small sections to the |
bottom of the form until all the hair is attached.
|This should be the final result.|
|Attach the bun to your head by creating a small pony tail and bobby pin it to your head.|
You can put it low like above.
|Or you can put it high like this.|
|And here is the vintage bun cover that inspired it all.|

|1. Start by sectioning off a square section on the top of the head. Clip it out of the way.|
|2. Pull the rest of the hair back into a tight ponytail. I slicked the sides back with gel.|
3. take a section of the top and curl toward the direction of the swirl.
|4. Continue curling, then tease each section. The more you tease, the more solid your swirl will be.|
|5. Take the whole section and curl it together.|
6. Brush the hair to smooth it. Gather it together like the photo. Pinch it and then start the swirl.
|7. Once you have the base secured with a bobby pin, pin curl the tip and roll in. This process|
can take some time. Keep practicing. Spray with hairspray as you go. With all of the
teasing, it shouldn't take more than a couple of bobby pins to secure.
|1. Start with a deep side part. I like to line mine up with the arch of my eyebrow.|
2. Take a small section of hair and spray with a heat protectant. Curl the hair and twist while
wrapping. I use a medium size curling wand. Curl in the same direction and try to keep the
|4. Slide the hair off of the wand, but catch the hair so it doesn't stretch out. Spray with hairspray.|
5. Pin to head like a stand up pin curl. This is so the hair can cool. It will make the curls
stronger and last longer.
|6. Curl the entire head and let cool completely.|
|7. Carefully take out the curls and brush through with your fingers. |
8. Brush through with a soft bristle brush and pull the hair down. This will help show the
natural places it wants to wave.
|9. Working in sections, tug and push and put clips where the waves take shape. Spray with|
10. I used a combination of large clips, small metal clips and finger wave clips where I wanted
to create a ridge. Spray, spray spray.
|The final result. Be patient, it takes time to get it right. Work in sections and if something|
looks good, pin it.
|An alternative look is an updo. I separated the hair from the ears back and created a pony.|
I then split the pony into sections and pin curled. I pinned the sides up and added a curl to each side.
