Here is the requested tutorial of my high bun. It is very simple and perfect for the summer weather. This bun requires some preparation before styling because to get the fullest volume for the bun your hair needs to be stretched and smoothed. I stretched my hair by putting it in two pigtails and braiding down the length while it was wet and allowing my hair to dry overnight in that style. For optimum smoothness I put a scarf on my head to make all the frizzies and fly away hairs lay down.

How do you achieve your massively chic high bun?

    i also love the bun! and the blouse too! i think that it might be either a mexican or hungarian embroidered blouse i've seen some similar ones on etsy and ebay, if you do google search you will likely find one. nia

    Cute I can't wait until my hair gets longer for me to do a high bun. This style I will go to when my hair grows out because I cut my heat damaged ends.

    Mine is a really messy bun but I use wondercurl whipped to stretch it and then put a elastic band in. I fold, tuck and pin it.

    I use twist to stretch my hair & then I mist my hair a little with a mixture of water & conditioner just to dampen. I then put an oil on & a styler. I use my knee high & I use my friend bobby to hold in place.

    I love rocking high buns with my kinky coily hair! It's a simple, quick style that's also protective.

    The method I use is similar to the one in the "Tutorial| My Natural High Bun" YouTube video by FusionofCultures []

    The differences between method and her's as as follows–I use Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque as a moisturizer, homemade flax seed gel, my hands (instead of a brush), a black knee high stocking (as a hair tie) and MetaGrip bobby pins.
