This is probably not a new style to some of you, but it's new to me...  I thought I'd try to post some instructions.  It is pretty simple.  If you can do a pony tail and a cinamon bun you can do this!  What you need is a scrunchie and a pair of hair sticks or whatever you would normally use to secure a cinamon bun...

<IMG alt=ponybun1001.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... jpg">&nbsp;

First make a half pony out of the hair on the top of your head.&nbsp; Part from the ears straight back, it should be about half of your hair.&nbsp; This is the part that will be your ponytail in the finished style.

<IMG alt=ponybun1002.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... jpg">&nbsp;

Next&nbsp;take the hair from underneath, the part not contained in the scrunchie and make a cinamon bun around your secured ponytail and scrunchie.&nbsp; It might take a little practice to cover the scrunchie, but I got it on the first try so it can't be too hard!&nbsp;

When you have finished the bun, secure it with pins or sticks as you would normally do on your bun.&nbsp; I used sticks since they tend to hold my hair better.&nbsp; Just make sure the sticks go under your scrunchie.&nbsp; This should be your finished style...

<IMG alt=ponybun1004.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... &nbsp;<IMG style="WIDTH: 258px; HEIGHT: 285px" height=331 alt=ponybun1006.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... un1006.jpg" width=311> <IMG style="WIDTH: 260px; HEIGHT: 291px" height=307 alt=ponybun1007.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... un1007.jpg" width=271> <IMG style="WIDTH: 263px; HEIGHT: 282px" height=388 alt=ponybun002.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... bun002.jpg" width=250><IMG style="WIDTH: 257px; HEIGHT: 397px" height=397 alt=ponybun001.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... bun001.jpg" width=265>&nbsp;&nbsp;

I really like this style.&nbsp; It looks way harder than it is, keeps your hair out of your face and is very secure.&nbsp; I sometimes tend to get it too tight...

A variation of it would be to then take the hair that is hanging loose and twist it around the bun again to put it all up in one big bun.&nbsp; I like this since it makes your bun look huge and it lays very flat.&nbsp; Here's an example of that...&nbsp; You could either secure the second bun with pins or take out the sticks and put them back in to hold the whole thing.

<IMG style="WIDTH: 262px; HEIGHT: 358px" height=357 alt=ponybun1009.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... un1009.jpg" width=251>&nbsp;

Let me know if the instructions weren't clear enough and I will try to get better pictures.&nbsp; This was the best I could do while taking my own pictures...&nbsp; &nbsp; I'd love to see how this looks on everyone else...

I'll have to play around with that one. My hair is so fine/thin that it's hard for me to do a lot of styles. I usually end up running out of hair, lol!

Thanks for sharing!

I just threw this up to see if I "could" do it. I might have to work on it a bit more, but this is my first try.
Sorry if the picture is a bit fuzzy....like I said, this was just something I did real quick so I could post a pic.

Is it the big hair bungee that makes it bigger? I tried the same idea just now but just with a pony tail thing, and with my thin, fine hair it was pretty lame, the "bun" part didn't really even look like a bun, just hair twisted around. I will try again wtih a bigger bungee but I don't know if I have enough hair for bungee "coverage"

If it works I'll take a pic, though. It's weird how much hair it looks like I have until I start twisting it up and it ends up the size of a walnut LOL

Boy, I sure do messy updos!

Here's my attempt.



I couldn't twist before the first time around or it would twist too small to even come close to covering the bungee ... so it's more swept around at first... it actually has enough length to go around several times (since it's so thin) but it doesn't provide much bungee coverage.

Any tips on how not to have everything look so sloppy?

Maybe I'll try to wrap the rest around and cover up the bungee completely. If you can see the bits of purple, that's where the bungee shows thru.

Your hair turned out great!&nbsp; I actually used a big velvet scrunchie on mine.&nbsp; And your right about not twisting too soon.&nbsp; I should have mentioned that.&nbsp; You do have to just barley twist to keep it together and sweep it around the scrunchie then twist however you want...&nbsp; Do you think useing aloe vera gel on your hair would make it look less messy?&nbsp; Or maybe just damp?&nbsp; I personaly prefer&nbsp;all of the &nbsp;curls like you have.&nbsp; It makes the look more sexy and fun!&nbsp; My sister's hair looks a lot like yours, except that yours&nbsp;looks healthier...

I've heard that wetting hair before doing styles helps keep curls in control.

I did mine a bit different than yours. I find when I put it in a ponytail first, it's hard to wrap, and also my ponytail ends up being too thin in the overall style.

How I did mine:

1. Gather hair in an unsecured ponytail
2. Take a small section of hair from underneath and wrap it around. I think my section was only 1-2" thick.
3. Secure with hairscroos.



Excuse the little piece sticking out

I knew it would look great on your shiny hair!&nbsp; It's funny how things work different for everyone.&nbsp; I can't do it with out the scrunchie, I can't keep it all under control and end up with a big blob!&nbsp; LOL...

Boy, I sure do messy updos!

Here's my attempt.



I couldn't twist before the first time around or it would twist too small to even come close to covering the bungee ... so it's more swept around at first... it actually has enough length to go around several times (since it's so thin) but it doesn't provide much bungee coverage.

Any tips on how not to have everything look so sloppy?

Maybe I'll try to wrap the rest around and cover up the bungee completely. If you can see the bits of purple, that's where the bungee shows thru.

It looks fine to me. I like your curls too! I think this style works well for you.

I did mine a bit different than yours. I find when I put it in a ponytail first, it's hard to wrap, and also my ponytail ends up being too thin in the overall style.

How I did mine:

1. Gather hair in an unsecured ponytail
2. Take a small section of hair from underneath and wrap it around. I think my section was only 1-2" thick.
3. Secure with hairscroos.



Excuse the little piece sticking out

Love,

It's not loading for me, for some reason

I'll try again later, I'd love to see it. You have such nice thick, long, shiny hair Leia!

This is probably not a new style to some of you, but it's new to me...&nbsp; I thought I'd try to post some instructions.&nbsp; It is pretty simple.&nbsp; If you can do a pony tail and a cinamon bun you can do this!&nbsp; What you need is a scrunchie and a pair of hair sticks or whatever you would normally use to secure a cinamon bun...

<IMG alt=ponybun1001.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... jpg">&nbsp;

First make a half pony out of the hair on the top of your head.&nbsp; Part from the ears straight back, it should be about half of your hair.&nbsp; This is the part that will be your ponytail in the finished style.

<IMG alt=ponybun1002.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... jpg">&nbsp;

Next&nbsp;take the hair from underneath, the part not contained in the scrunchie and make a cinamon bun around your secured ponytail and scrunchie.&nbsp; It might take a little practice to cover the scrunchie, but I got it on the first try so it can't be too hard!&nbsp;

When you have finished the bun, secure it with pins or sticks as you would normally do on your bun.&nbsp; I used sticks since they tend to hold my hair better.&nbsp; Just make sure the sticks go under your scrunchie.&nbsp; This should be your finished style...

<IMG alt=ponybun1004.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... &nbsp;<IMG style="WIDTH: 258px; HEIGHT: 285px" height=331 alt=ponybun1006.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... un1006.jpg" width=311> <IMG style="WIDTH: 260px; HEIGHT: 291px" height=307 alt=ponybun1007.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... un1007.jpg" width=271> <IMG style="WIDTH: 263px; HEIGHT: 282px" height=388 alt=ponybun002.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... bun002.jpg" width=250><IMG style="WIDTH: 257px; HEIGHT: 397px" height=397 alt=ponybun001.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... bun001.jpg" width=265>&nbsp;&nbsp;

I really like this style.&nbsp; It looks way harder than it is, keeps your hair out of your face and is very secure.&nbsp; I sometimes tend to get it too tight...

A variation of it would be to then take the hair that is hanging loose and twist it around the bun again to put it all up in one big bun.&nbsp; I like this since it makes your bun look huge and it lays very flat.&nbsp; Here's an example of that...&nbsp; You could either secure the second bun with pins or take out the sticks and put them back in to hold the whole thing.

<IMG style="WIDTH: 262px; HEIGHT: 358px" height=357 alt=ponybun1009.jpg src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/ca_cowgi ... un1009.jpg" width=251>&nbsp;

Let me know if the instructions weren't clear enough and I will try to get better pictures.&nbsp; This was the best I could do while taking my own pictures...&nbsp; &nbsp; I'd love to see how this looks on everyone else...

It's so cool how the same style can look completely different yet so beautiful on each person! I have extremely thin hair so, I am not sure how it will turn out as a ponybun but I will try it and if the ponytail is too thin I will make it a complete bun. Thanks Erin!
