Picking out my BM hair - big fat bun

Recommended Posts

I thought it would be fun to have a big fat bun for my BM hair in a couple of weeks. I'm in my brother's wedding. I've wanted to try this hairstyle since charlotte's first wedding on SATC. It's how carry had her hair for the wedding & I really liked it.

 

I'm not sure if my hair is long enough. It's passed my shoulders, but not much.

 

I have a doughnut for extra padding, but it doesn't make a big fat bun. How do you get one so huge? I can't find any larger doughnuts. Someone said they used socks. I'm going to a hairdresser, but if I need to buy something in advance I want to make sure I have it.

 

Also, I've seen some stuff online where they cover a foundation with fake hair so it's easier to make the bun. should I get some fake hair?

 

here are some inspiration pics. Do you think it will be cute? Or should I consider other BM hair?

That hairstyle is so cute. I saw it in nenamono (Michelle's) pics and review for paradisus riviera. She said she had to tell the girls in Mexico how to do it and it looks awesome in her pics. Maybe it was a doughnut? I never saw anything about socks though- With my luck I would be walking down the aisle and the sock would unfold or something on my head. ...

 

anyway search her post. Hope it helps!

i LOVE to wear my hair like that. i used to have one of the things to do it, but it got lost somewhere. someone recently cut the middle out of a body-wash sponge (i'm having a brain fart - loofah?)

mine was brown, so if a little hair poked thru, you couldn't tell. but if you got a bright green or white loofah(?) you might need some fake hair. you just put your hair in a ponytail, pull the pony thru the middle of the thingybobber and pin it around the thing.

that probably wasn't much help.

that was just what I needed to know. I didn't think about a loofa. I'll look for a brown one & if I can't find one I'll cover it with fake hair.

thanks! That would be plenty big. the little thing I have now works that way, but it just makes a tiny bun. I want a big fat one :)

I was just thinking that I just saw this on someone here. My memory sucks lately so glad you remembered! I think she brought some sort of tool with her for the stylist to use to create it. I love it tho! Gorgeous.

From Michelle's Paradisus Review: I wanted my hair precisely a certain way and to get it done we had to create an invention. We basically bought a sponge that you use in the shower and cut a hole in the middle to create the height and shape I wanted. Let me tell you the salon loved us and had a great time laughing at our creation but kept saying they were going to the store to get one also so they could do it at home.

There is a pic of her hair here too... http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t26118

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
