Do It Yourself Faux Bun

This tutorial was inspired by a vintage bun cover I found a local store. I went back and forth about whether to buy it. It was very unique and I had never seen one, but on the other hand, I had just cut my hair and didn't have enough to even make a bun. So, I decided to make one. The tools you need are:
  • A bun form (I got mine off of Amazon.com. Make sure it's the kind with snaps on the end, not the circle kind.
  • Fake hair (I got some cheap ($20) human hair that was very close to my color at my local Sally's beauty. I bought the kind that's just on a track.
  • Thread
  • Needle
  • Scissors
  • Bobby pins

Items needed

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.

Lucille Ball Hair Tutorial

Hello Ladies, I recently posted a tutorial on my blog about how to do the Lucille Ball "Poodle" hair. I just bought a book about hairstyles from the 1940's. In it it shows what hair cuts you need, how to pattern your pin curls, and it also has many different hair style ideas. If you love vintage hair, I recommend buying the book. You can find a link and my tutorial here: www.bouffantsandbeehives.com…See More

Hey Ali! Thanks for the add! I just love your blog; I am now following the blog, added you as a friend on FB, and following you on twitter...hope that doesn't sound stalkerish! I just think you're amazing with your hairstyles and can use a little help at times. I'm already following cherrydollface on youtube, but must look up the other girls to ee if they make their hairstyles any easier as I'm a beginner with the hairstyles, I get frustrated easily ;p
