Protective Style: Twisted Bun and Gold Hair Chain Accessory

Sunday, September 28, 2014


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!

  6. This is super cute. I have a big head too LOL but I think I can do this style. Do you just use plain aloe vera to help with the edges?

    1. LOL. Aloe vera gel works great, or even an edge control pomade works too!
