No Pins or Ties

No, not voodoo or BDSM, just hair. I can put my hair up with nothing but my own hair! I won't be selfish - I will share the knowledge with you. I don't think I truly invented it, but I was playing with my hair one day trying to do a gibson tuck and it stayed by itself. There is a girl on YouTube who does something similar, if you want to check that out, too. 

Pull your hair back into a high or mid-high ponytail.

Wrap your hair around the ponytail to make a bun.

Make a hole with your fingers in the hair near your scalp at the top of the bun. Let the bun loosen a little if you need to. 

Flip the bun over into the hole. Make sure no pieces are falling through and that the bun has not loosened that much. 

Take the top sides of the flip and move them to cover the top of the flipped bun that is sticking out. If you want a more doughnuty look, pull the hole in the middle to open it up more. 

Tada! If you kept it tight enough it should stay for at least a few hours. My hair is not super slippery, so if your hair is, I have no idea if this will work for you.

Also, what is with the light-brown strand of hair at the nape of my neck? There is no way it's getting sun-bleached down there...  Anyone know why I have this?

  1. Yay, this even worked for my fine hair! Maybe you have a birthmark at the root of the light spot? I've heard that they can make hair light or white even.
