Loc Week: Bangin’ Holiday Bun by Chescaleigh

We’ve got our second styling tutorial by blogger/vlogger Chescaleigh! (Wasn’t that Faux-Shave Tutorial THE JAM!?!?!? This time she’s bringing us a super cute and super fly updo look for the holidays! Enjoy!

With the holidays right around the corner it’s time to start thinking of fun styles to wear to your office and family holiday parties. This bun is fast, easy, works on a variety of hair lengths and can be dressed up or down with a hair accessory. Check out this step by step photo tutorial to learn how to create a bangin’ holiday bun!

Step 1: Section off a group of locs to create a bang. Twist the section down the length of the locs.
Step 2: Loop the section into a cinnamon bun shape, hanging over your forehead. You can make this bun as large or small as you’d like.
Step 3: Secure with a straight pin or bobby pin.

Step 4: Gather the rest of your hair into a ponytail.
Step 5: Twist the ponytail down the length of the hair.
Step 6: Continue twisting the ponytail into another messy cinnamon bun shape. ( Are you hungry yet?)

Step 7 -8 : Use a hair tie or rubber band to tie off the bun before securing with a straight pin
Step 9: Get super excited when you find your favorite sequin scarf you thought got lost when you moved to New York! Yay!

Finish off this look by tying a sparkly scarf around the bun or throwing on a jeweled headband for a look that’s the perfect combination of chic and festive for the holidays!

Yay for Chescaleigh! I’ve got myself some serious serious loc envy today. Please check out her Youtube channel for more where all this goodness came from!
