my personal favorite for tough buns - a hair screw (though I haven't found them anywhere in a long time).


I found a wonderful hair screw at the Bronze Jewelers.  They also have metal "snoods" or bun covers and barrettes.  Here is a link to their site.

Well - when it's wet or pullled straight my hair reaches my waist - but since I've got incredibly curly hair (see the customers gallery - I'm the blonde curly hair with pictures of 3 sticks) my hair falls about 6 inches above my waist when it's just down and I let it dry naturally (which is typical).

My hair makes a knot really easily though - and holds it on it's own - I typically to the knotted ponytail part but just with the top half of my hair for a great effect (and use sticks to hold/decorate it).  For the knotted ponytail with my whole hair I usually do the cheat way I mentioned unless I do it on my hair when it's wet - then I'll do it the real way and usually do something like shape the curls as they dry or make lots of little braids in the tail.

Which is just like 3 or 2 weeks away!  I am really scared because i have everything picked out and just have no clue what to do as a hairstyle!   ???  I am just sooo confused!  I have already looked at the sites that you ladies have posted but I dont like any of the hair styles they have on those sites!  If any of you could give me any other sites I would greatly appreciate it!  Thanks Smiley

I've been checking out the Crowning Glory web site, and noticed in particular the style at the bottom right on page http://www.dcn.davis.ca.us/~klsabin/crown-photos.html

How do they do those twisties? Would it look goofy on curly hair?

Kate;
Aren't those styles on Crowning Glory great??!!  I'd love to have someone around all the time to braid my hair like that.

Anyway, the twisties.... they are done by taking a small amount of hair and twisting it until the "rope" twists back on itself.  In this case, they have probably twisted the rope and forced it to curl back on itself, then pinned it down, continued to twist making another twistie, pinning it, etc.

I have seen this done on curly hair and it looks fine.  You might want to play around with the amount of hair that is used to create the twistie to get the desired effect.  The more hair included, the bulkier the looping will be.

Thanks bikerbraid! I have a few *very* short locks on the crown of my head, and have been wondering how to do something fun with them until they are long enough to ponytail.

/Kate

P.S. I like your new photo!

Thanks, Kate.  The picture is actually 2 years old.  When I went biking this week, my braids now criss-cross over the helmet - hopefully I can get a new pic soon.

Doing the twisties on shorter hair is an excellent idea!  If you need to dress it up, you could get some of those crystal bobbi pins to hold them in place, or put the tiny flowers in the center of the twists.
