Iv had requests to do tutorials of some of the hairstyles I came up with during my play time, so heres the first.

Its called the Flower Bun (without the center it looks a bit like an Iris or Orchid). Its technically not a bun but just easy to call it one.

First put your hair into a ponytail with a hair band, in the position you want the middle of the bun to be.


If you just want the flower then devide into four equal sections, but if you want to do the center then you'll need five.

Taking the upper most section, roll it back on itself and pin to the top of the head.


Repeat the process for the two sides.

Pick up the last section (or in the case of the five, the second to last), and make a roll, but make it slightly longer then the others and pin in place.


To add the center piece:

Take a small section of the last bit, curl it back on itself once and pin. Do this right round the center.


Once youv finished the center wrap the strap ends round the back of the small curls and pin. This makes them stand up.



Equipment needed: Comb or brush, lots of pins, hair band.

Variations: Braid the center petals, make the outer petals smaller with multi layers, put a bun in the center.

Worn: Special Occasions.

Best hair: Long straight and wavy

Problems: Keeping the rolls in place when pinning, and low to the head, keeping the center petals in place before pinning.

Hope that explains it!

Look out for tutorials coming soon.
