Rose Bun

Today I'm wearing a Rose Bun. I made it by putting my hair in a ponytail, dividing the ponytail into three and then making three separate Rope Braids. Written instructions on how to make a Rope Braid can be found in this entry.

After the Rope Braids were made, I then coiled all three braids, pinned them into place and created the Rose Bun.

In these photos, there are a lot of sticking-out ends. If I were planning on having a more polished look for an evening out, I would likely dampen my hair with distilled water and perhaps add a bit of gel before making both the ponytail and the Rope Braids. I might also add a hair stick or another hair accessory for adornment only. In a future entry, I'll post photos of such a polished Rose Bun.

Before too long, I'll make an instructional video for making Rope Braids for those of you who prefer visual instructions.

I enjoyed and appreciated the comments to yesterday's entry, and I will respond tomorrow in the comments section. I'm still having a rough go with the migraines, and I can't spend any more time writing today.

'Til tomorrow, my friends. Much love to all.


  1. That is such a pretty bun, Franny! I'll give it a try tonight, although my hair may be too short to coil. The braids are do-able ,but there is a good chance that they will be too short......definitely a goal bun though!! I wish you good luck in your struggle to rid yourself of that stubborn migraine. Sweet Dreams.

  2. Hello Franny,
    Sorry to hear you're STILL not feeling better.

    Thanks for another inspiration, think I need longer hair before attempting this.

    All the best,

  3. What a beautiful bun and one so appropriately name. Lovely, Franny. I do hope today is better head wise...

  4. This bun came out beautifully, Franny!! Looks like an easy-to-do, but elegant hairstyle.


I love hearing from you.
