View Full Version : A new 'do (my first attempt at a rose bun)

December 21st, 2010, 08:51 PM
I tried a rose bun today for the first time. I started out not really knowing what I would do. First, I made two one-sided Dutch braids to frame my face, then put my hair that was left over in a pony tail and made a rose bun in the middle. I ended up wrapping the ends of my Dutch braids around several times before pinning them in place with bobby pins and a few hair clips. I think next time I'll try a rose bun using all my hair and see how that looks.:blossom:

Beautiful! Also? I totally covet your butterfly clips. I've been looking for some with semi-decent hinges with no success.

December 21st, 2010, 09:01 PM
Very beautiful, elegant and artistic!

December 21st, 2010, 09:04 PM
That is amazing! I love it. ^ ^

Oooo... it looks like something a Roman woman would have :)

It's :agape: !!!

It looks gorgeous!

December 21st, 2010, 09:59 PM
Wow, that's probably one of the loveliest rose buns I have ever seen! Those clips look really pretty with your hair color, too. :)

December 21st, 2010, 09:59 PM
Holy Cow!!! This was your first try??? That's beautiful!!

December 21st, 2010, 10:12 PM
That is gorgeous! I love it. It looks great especially seeing it was your first attempt. Mine looked awful when I first tried. You're a natural!

December 21st, 2010, 10:21 PM
That is lovely!!! Wow! You're quite the braid master :D

December 21st, 2010, 10:43 PM
That's gorgeous! I wish I could do that, but I'm assuming with only 28" I can't do much of it.

December 21st, 2010, 10:57 PM
Whoa. Your take on it is beautiful!

December 21st, 2010, 11:10 PM
Hope you're not tired of hearing - THAT IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!

December 21st, 2010, 11:13 PM
As said, it looks awesome!!

Your braids look really nice and smooth too!! I have layers, so I'm loving the look of nice smooth braids these days since I can't have any of my own yet!!

Oops, I forgot to mention~ I purchased my butterfly clips here on island. They have beautiful ones of all shapes, sizes and colors! I should start an on-line business! :p

That is an utterly stunning bun! :thud: I love the rose bun myself, and that in combination with the other braids is spectacular. And the claw clips look lovely in the updo!:)

That is gorgeous! It looks like it was sliding down already by the time you took the picture. Am I wrong? How did it hold?

December 22nd, 2010, 11:37 AM
Gorgeous! And very neat- I wouldn't be able to do that without end bits sticking out. Your hair is beautiful!

December 22nd, 2010, 11:51 AM
Beautiful bun! :D

December 22nd, 2010, 03:09 PM

Yes, exactly what I was thinking! The style (really, your first attempt!?!) and your choice off clips are gorgeous. Amazing! I just about fell off my chair when I opened your thread!

December 23rd, 2010, 09:43 AM
:thudpile: I am impressed. This is so... perfect! And it was a good idea with those Dutch braids;)

December 25th, 2010, 02:23 AM
Thanks to everyone for viewing and posting on this thread! :) I just finished posting pictures of my hairstyle on Christmas Day (which is today where I live :p ). It is another first attempt I learned right here on LHC. ;)

December 25th, 2010, 06:57 AM

December 25th, 2010, 08:30 AM
One word sums it up: WOW!

December 25th, 2010, 12:33 PM

December 25th, 2010, 12:36 PM

December 25th, 2010, 10:04 PM
Thanks, everybody! :) My hair is about 4 in. off the ground, but you could do this with hair much shorter than that. You can tell I had to wrap the Dutch braids around my head several times! :p

December 25th, 2010, 10:54 PM
beautiful rose bun! That's the best I've ever seen
