    Default May 2021: Bump

    Add a little volume at the front. Post your favorite tutorials!

    Here is a text tutorial from our Nightshade:
    Step 1- Make a half-up:Taking a section of hair at the crown of the head, I made a half-up and held the mini-ponytail at the top of the back of my head. Then I gave it a few twists (still holding it).


    Then I pushed the twist up a bit, until a had a more soft lifted look at the front (don't worry if it looks a bit malformed at this stage, we'll fix that later).




    To secure this (just for a bit) get either a bobby pin or a tiny claw clip. Secure the twist in the back.




    Step 2- Make a Bun
    I've only tried this with buns that start with a twisted rope, such as a cinnabun or a Gibraltar bun, but I imagine it would work well for other variations as well. Being careful not to mess up the bobby pin too much, I gather all of the hair (halfup tail included) into a ponytail just below the point where the bobby pin is, and twist. Then make a bun and secure it with a stick, leaving the bobby pin/clip in place.




    Step 3- Remove the Pin & Adjust Top/Front of Updo
    Take the pin out, and the uber-poof you had going is will relax a bit. Then, with your fingers, you can adust the top of the updo so the lift is more uniform. The halfup twist will stay in the same location at the back of your head, so unlike just a loose bun, it won't slouch backwards and pull your hair tight to your skull.

    I do a similar thing with my curtain bangs in the front of most of my buns to add a little lift/softness so I don't look like the Trunchbull. I must be a trendsetter, ha ha.

    bparnell, thank you for sharing that video! I have always wondered how to make the poof that is so popular in historical movies and that makes total sense!

    In the meantime, I tried a little bump with my bangs. I'll update with a pic in a minute. Some people can pull this off. I am not some people.

    Edit:


    Reminds me of when I was little and we would curl my bangs, brush them out, and hair spray them.

    Hair is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.

    This is a great video, bparnell. I'm going to try this.

    What neko_kawaii is referring to is executed differently. It gives the crown a little lift. But then you can create your bun at the back of your head or the base of your skull -- however you want. I use Nightshade's technique a lot. Sadly, I am terrible at selfies, much less videos, or I would make a tutorial for everyone.

    Great photos, nightshade! Before I had bangs, I used to do this all the time to lighten up the look a bit. Now, as Our Lady of Perpetual Flyaways, I don't bother because the flys and fringies take care of softening my hair.

    Thank you for the pics, nightshade!

    I use an alligator clip to hold mine in place. Works like a charm.
