This is going to be an exciting weekend; two of my friends are getting married! I introduced them on my 26th birthday and they’ve been together ever since. I am excited to be in the wedding but have no ideas for a hairstyle. Based on weddings past, I knew that I wanted to have my hair in a protective style, so I decided to recreate a look with a faux bun similar to my New Year’s Eve 2015 look. Hair elastics and pins disappear every now and then for naturals, so I went to my local Walgreens after work to pick buy some Goody SlideProof Silicone Ponytailers. There was a BOGO on selected Goody products, so I purchased the clear and black SlideProof Silicone ponytailers and Goody Clean Radiance Paddle Brush.

I started out on a day old twist out. My hair still had definition so I used the Goody Clean Radiance Paddle Brush to detangle my hair in the front.


The next step was to form my bun. Since cutting my hair, I don’t have much hair for a ponytail, so I added some hair to create a faux bun. I used the clear slide proof silicone ponytailers for my hair and wrapped another around the added hair. I used the paddle brush to tease the hair and wrapped a twisted strand around the bun. For the pompadour, just lift the hair at the top, roll and pin the end and connect it to the faux bun.

This is the final look. You can even add a flower accessory to spice it up. I added one later on in the day.
