Signature Hairstyle for Transitioning from Relaxed to Natural Hair – Updo




Signature Hairstyle for Transition – Updo at 7 weeks and 5 days post relaxer

I was often asked how I do my signature bun hairstyle so I recorded a live video of how I do my hair. Check it out below.

I started using this hairstyle at 7 weeks and 5 days post relaxer.

This is my quick & chic bun style done on shoulder length natural hair that was roller set & blow dried straight. This style can also be done on curly hair. It took about 5 tries but I got this super fast, chic style to work. I then tried to add a baggie (to keep my ends moisturized) since I got the bun part down.

As you can see in the video, I pull my hair back into a ponytail and secure it using a scrunchie or ponytail holder of some sort.  I ended up buying like 8 silk scrunchies on-line from etsy to use on my hair.  I do not recommend hair scrunchies or hair ties that have metal.  Get the metal free kind since the metal ones can snag out your hair.

I sometimes would hide a baggie in my hair (a plastic cap tied around my moisturized ends) and then I would secure the bun with a hair stick, hair claw clip or an alligator clip.  It is a fast and easy style.
