Faux Bun’s have been out for years but not everyone is taking advantage on this chic style. It’s a simple protective style that can help any naturalista and transitioning (relaxed to natural) curly girl look fab in under 10 minutes. I’m all about looking great effortlessly. During the TWA ( Teeny Weeny Afro) stage, we tend to want to rush the growth or find ways to have different looks to get through this stage. Patience is key when it comes to growing out your natural hair. In the meantime, we simply got to fake it until we make it. Marley or Kanekolon hair is at any beauty supply store near you and less than $10. Yes!! You heard me right less than $10. Try these styles below to begin protective styling and avoid having the hands in your hair syndrome every morning. Protecting your tresses from the elements and giving your hair a break from the frequent manipulation can lead to less breakage and hair growth. And who doesn’t love that!! Check out these 6 Faux bun styles below that can be achieved for any Naturalista especially TWA stage.
Traeh on Youtube has been killin these faux buns on her TWA tresses. In this video, she has 3 looks one high bun, one with an added bang and even placed a couple of accessories to spice it up.
TiffanyNichols does a protective style with Kanekolon hair that can be for a date night if you leave it down or you can bun in it up like she has in this video. Try each style and see how you like it. It’s about having fun with your hair and seeing what works.
One of Traeh’s latest videos on Youtube is the topknot bun. It looks complicated and if I didn’t see this video I would assume it was all hers. This literally took less than 5 minutes on her short natural hair.
I had to use Traeh again for this low bun style. This look can be used in any setting whether for work, date night or chilling on the weekends.
