Who Did Your Big Chop?

"Who did your big chop?" and  "Where can I go to get my BC?" are questions I get asked a lot. Since I cut my own hair I can only go on the recommendations of others. So, I'll ask you all, "Where did you go for your big chop?". Or are you a stylist who specializes in cutting transitioners who are ready to take that leap into natural hair?

Quick and Easy Bun

This is my first YouTube tutorial demonstrating a quick and easy donut bun. The video is a little longer than I'd like, because I don't know how to edit yet, but hopefully you'll find it helpful. As I mentioned before this style works so well because it's simple and BONUS doubles as an awesome protective style. 

Pictured below is my finished bun after it's been tied down for a few hours.

The Bun is Back!!!

When my hair was relaxed, my go to style was my donut bun. I would wear my hair down a few days then bun it the rest of the week till my next wash. I am not going to lie to you, I missed it so much after my big chop. It was easy and convenient. Since being natural, I had not had a style I felt that way about until now! 

Close up of my bun!

I had just been assuming my hair was to short to bun since my relaxed hair had to have considerable length for a decent bun. While experimenting the other day I was shocked to find how wrong I was. So what does that mean? New protective style for me y'all!

My bun was achieved with a mesh donut and two elastics. It literally took about 2 minutes. As another added benefit this style prevents me from playing with my hair non stop. The bun is also a great style for transitioners with medium to long hair.Hopefully, I will be able to do a youtube tutorial on how I achieved this look, soon. So be on the look out!

What is your favorite protective style? Have you tried bunning?
