Sometimes a protective style needs some spicing up! I was heading out to a party and I thought, what is the quickest hair style I can do, considering wash day is tomorrow and I don't want to put heat in my hair as yet? So, I moisturized and sealed my hair, parted my hair straight down the middle, used a little bit of Aloe Vera Gel on my edges, then I put my hair in an Ouchless ponytail holder. I parted my ponytail in two (2), did a two-strand twist, wrapped it around to form a bun, then pinned it! Done.
A while back, I bought this gorgeous gold hair chain from Claire's ($10) and I always envisioned wearing it with my hair down - freshly flat ironed! Well, I figured it should still look chić if I wear it with a bun, no? Well, here are the results. There's a stretchy band at the back to form/adjust to any head size. I have a fairly large head (plus new growth) so it was accommodating and comfortable :)
It's a quick protective/low manipulation style that anyone can do! The gold hair chain is definitely a must-have in your hair accessory arsenal!
