My Holiday Party Updo

My job had a dress-up holiday party this year Yea!  I had initally intended to straighten my hair, as I have been promising to straighten my hair since my July.  Well, it didn't happen; the day just got away fron me and before I knew it, it was 90 minutes before the time I had planned to leave with no solid outfit & no hair do!

I had been wearing a twistout all week and I wanted something a little more festive and glam.  My hair finally decided to cooperate with a high bun LOL!  I heavily misted with rosewater, put some avocado butter on for shine & smoothed it up into a bun.  I put a scarf on to smooth it out a bit while I figured out what to put on.
When I took the scarf off, it was cute....but not the look I had envisioned.  It needed more....more volume!  I pulled out some 4a/4b hair tracks from my hair stash for the solution.  I undid my bun and placed some in the middle of my hair for a filler & redid my bun, so that my hair was on the outside of the bun.  I sprinkled a few sparkle hair pins around and it looked much better. 

I would have liked to smoothed it back down, but it was time to fly! What do you think ladies?

  1. Liked this - may invest in some tracks of this type as an option. How long did it stay up?
