The other day Marlie asked me to make her hair look like Princess Tiana. A big bun on top of her head, no problem! But what if your daughter doesn't have much hair? Or even if she has a lot of hair, the bun ends up being small?
Here's an incredibly easy way to get the look of a big bun on top of the head without having to have much hair... (I learned this from my college roommate)
Start with making a pony tail on top of the head. Then add a scrunchie. (like this one)
Scrunchie should be close to hair color so it blends in. Just put the scrunchie on loose instead of twisting and putting it through the hair again. Take the pony tail, spread hair out and over the scrunchie.
The scrunchie is going to give you all the size/volume under the hair to make the bun look large.
Once hair is spread over the scrunchie, take a rubber hair band and place it on top of the bun, at the base which should keep the hair in place.
Add a princess tiara and you're done. The entire hairstyle should take less than 5 minutes. Perfect for a day of playing dress-up.
