The video demonstrates the bun on straight hair. However, the pictures shown below were done on hair that was braided in two big braids. The braids were cross-wrapped and left in over night for texture and volume.
Note: Hair ties at the ends of each braid was for demonstration purposes only to keep the braids from unraveling while taking the photo. After I braid, I cross-wrap and secure with a duck bill clip – no hair ties.
One hair fork will do but I like a good, secure hold so I use two. I placed one hair fork on the left and another hair fork on the right making sure they criss-cross over each other through the hair. Hair forks and hair sticks are quick, easy to use and provide a secure hold. Best of all, they do not scratch or irritate the scalp, tug at your edges or cause breakage. They are a must try for those wanting to spice up a protective style.
