Within the next few months, I have a rather large number of weddings to attend as a guest and I’m really excited about that! I very briefly though of treating myself for at least a few of these occasions by getting my hair and makeup professionally done, but I’ve been practicing with hairstyling lately and I’m quite proud with some of the styles I’ve tried. Recently, I created a pearl adorned bun that’s very elegant indeed and perfect for any wedding guest, and I just knew I had to share the process for others to see.
Check out these step by step instructions complete with photos! If you’d rather follow along with a video tutorial instead of written words, scroll to the bottom of this post to find just what you’re looking for.
For this style, you’ll need:
- Hair elastics
- Bobby pins
- A brush
Brush your hair thoroughly to rid it of tangles. Let it part wherever is natural or wherever you prefer. Section the top layer of the hair out as though you’re going to put it in a regular half-ponytail. You actually kind of are, but rather than pulling it to the back centre like you might be used to, you’ll pull it farther to the left. Tie this layer in a ponytail just under the crown of the head with a small hair elastic. Now gather the rest of the hair in the lower layer into another ponytail and do the same thing, but this time positioning the ponytail lower down, beneath the first one, and farther to the right. You’ll have two ponytails that are staggered in height and direction.
