Tutorial: Big Messy Bun for Transitioning and Natural Hair


Back when I was transitioning, you couldn't tell me nothin' about my Big All-Day Bun. It was my go-to transitioning style because it allowed me to have a big, full-looking bun despite my hair being thin and heat damaged.

All I needed to pull of the style was a regular banana clip, bobby pins, a soft bristle brush, water, and a little styling product for my edges -- until about month 7. Once I made it past 6 months of transitioning, banana clips were no longer my friend. I couldn't get them to stay in my hair without my hair being soaking wet (in it's most condensed state) -- and even as my hair dried throughout the day, I found many a banana clip popping out of my head.

Luckily in 2014, I solved the problem and I'm now able to rock that big ol' bun again. Head on over to NaturallyCurly.com to check the rest of the story, or check below for the step by step tutorial:
