I am just trying to understand my hair, to learn what works and what doesn't, to experiment, make mistakes, and to embrace my hair in it's entirety..... because Roots Don't Lie

From Puff to Bun

Hey Guys,

I started off with a 3 day old twist out and decided I needed a sleek look for a meeting I had the next day.

To achieve the Smooth look you will need:
  • A stretched out Hair Band
  • Hair Pins
  • Some Shea butter for your edges
  • Boar bristle brush
  • Spray bottle with water
  • Satin Scarf
  • Use your hands to smooth your hair to the top of your head where you want the bun to be.
  • Use the hair brush, to brush up the hair, making sure to smooth out the edges, as gently as possible.
  • I doubled my hair band and put my hair into a puff.
  • Using your hand, grab hair from the puff and stretch out as much as possible.
  • Grab sections from the puff, roll forward over the hair band, tuck and pin.
  • Smooth down any loose ends with bobby pins.
  • Spritz your edge with water, apply Shea butter, and tie hair down with a satin scarf



To maintain at night:
  • Tie down the edges with a satin scarf, to reduce any frizz.
  • Cover with a  satin bonnet.


Bella Joya.
