Sham: The only way is up!

I've always admired the sleek updo bun, its so classy, elegant and easy to achieve.
My hair is natural so I must admit it was abit hard to gain the sleekness and shine that you would usually get from chemically straightened hair but i used Olive Oil Edge Control to keep my baby hairs in place lol
Also I used my Babyliss ceramic hair straightener to ease out my natural curls.
There are so many fake hair buns that you can buy at your local hair retailer but i simply used a  Hair Sponge to achieve a bulky bun and wrapped my own hair round it.

What do you think?

There are so many Youtube hair tutorials out there but this one happens to be my favourite and the most simplistic steps to follow

What is your favourite hairdo?


  1. Hello there! The sleek bun looks splendid on you! And funny enough, I use the mask from Olive Oil even though I'm white (caucasian); it's excellent for my hair when it gets dry and a bit damaged! As to my favourite hairdo, it varies with time, mood, etc... but now I think I'm loving the Old Hollywood brushed-out pin-curls with a side part (I'll soon be posting photos :)


    (and thanks for following on Twitter! I'd appreciate it very much if you joined on Google and FB too :))

  10. Oh my word, brings me back to the days! I used to be a ballet dancer and ALL I wore ALL day was a ballet bun! I guess I got tired of it (but LOOOOVE it on others still)...started wearing mine swept to the side and pinned back with a bow or barette, a la 1940s. Check out my blog, you'll see that hairstyle almost every day!
