Lori, you always have the prettiest hairstyles! It looks so prettyon you, especially coupled with the flower.

If you don't mind, I'll join in, too. I did the Flower bun roughly a month ago, but I found the instructions for mine at Rapunzel's Resource ( http://tinyurl.com/27nrhe3 ). Mine is not as pretty as yours, though.



It turned out lopsided, but I console myself by saying that this is a bun that requires lots of practice to get right







Hair type: 2b/M/C/iii
Current length: classic
Primary goal: thickening the ends

Hair journal:
http://www.network54.com/Forum/663765

Routine:
- NW/SO on the scalp, with periodical length
washes (Alverde birke-salbei shampoo for the length)
- brushing, scritching, preening and massaging daily
- occasional S&D trims
- trimming the ends whenever they start looking funny
Hair type: 2b/M/C/iii
Current length: classic+
Current goal: knee

Current routine:
~ alternating a NW/SO (no water/sebum only) routine with occasional washes. I use the techniques of NW/SO (brushing, scritching and preening) almost daily, but I do a shampoo wash every month or two.

Products and tools:
~ Alverde Birke-Salbei shampoo
~ occasionally oiling the ends with either coconut or almond oil; currently experimenting with argan oil
~ an assortment of BBBs
~ Tangle Teezer/Tangle Angel & wide-tooth comb
~ hair friendly hair toys, for putting up hair and forgetting about it

Yours looks so much better.  It's so neat & mine is just kind of slopped together.  In my defense, I didn't follow any directions because I didn't know there were any.  I will have to check that out & maybe try again for a neater version instead of sloppy.  Yours looks like it could be in a bridal or prom magazine - very well done

It's so sweet of you to say this You could try this style too, if you have the time! You could do much prettier and bigger pin curls
