Here’s how to create a high bun on natural hair with the best products to use and video tutorial.
The high bun is very popular this season. It you can pull your hair up into a high pony tail you can achieve this style.
This style works best for me on an old twist/braid out or blow dried hair. My hair was blown out with a blow dry using the tension method in the tutorial video. (Tutorial video coming soon for the tension method).
The key to this hairstyle is smoothing your edges with a styling pomade or gel. For the purposes of the video, I used Eden BodyWork Coconut Shea Control Edge Glaze (Gel), 6oz, $8.99 Wal-Mart and Sally’s. I prefer either the previously mentioned Coconut Shea Edge Glaze or Curls Passion Fruit Curl Control Paste, 4oz, $8.99, Target and Wal-mart because they are both made with moisturizing natural ingredients.
I did find that I need to spray a little water before or after applying both. This help create a natural, smooth finish versus a gelled caked down look. You know what I mean?
Elastic ponytail holders are very important. Stay away from metal closures that can grab and pull out hair. If the rubber is showing go ahead and toss it. Grab a new ponytail holder, your hair will thank you later.
