then make a pony tail

next make a topsy tail
http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f280/lil_irish_angel01/DSC_0006.jpg

next take the tail of the topsy and bring it up and make slight little pocket. Insert beaks to hold in place

Next take the left over hair and gently twist to make a bun on top and insert a hair stick on either side and then insert one or two bobby pins or amish pins to secure the bun. And then gently slide the beaks out from under the bun and it should look like this

hey-I can actually try to do this one.I just have to use lots more bobby pins to keep my layers in check.

Thank you so much for posting.Have you entered this into the article section??you definately need to :)


eta-well-tried it and since I don't have quite enough length-I have to tweek it.Like most updos out there LOL.And for the article add-go to articles,scroll to the bottom of the page-on the left side there is a place where you can click "add article"-click that and it takes you where you can type the direction,etc.Hope you got it on ok.Remember the mods have to approve the article before it is shown on the site.

I did submit it to article and see what happens.

As for you hair did you try maybe having the topsy tail a little higher, rather an lower like i do on mine

I just got my topsy tail a few months back and just love it, Hubby will not let me go to the grocery store by myself anymore cause the last time i came home with the topsy tail. Well and besides this one hasn't broken yet like the one from claire's I was so mad.

I hope it works for you, I'd love to see a pic of it

Ah, so pretty, but my hair is nowhere near long enough! I can make the bottom loop, but I don't have any hair left over for the bun. It looks great!

Looks good but if you do the topsy tail the other way you then don't have to worry about the beak clips and the length is supported. Just a suggestion

Even more inspiration for growing my hair longer. Really pretty, and looks easy enough even for my limited updo skills.
