“Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly,
and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair.”
Have you given that which cost you most and that which is most precious to you for the glory of Christ?
Finally a new tutorial!! I call this one the double-bun Edwardian-inspired updo. This style is super easy– In the video, I did it in three minutes. If your hair turns into Dr. Seuss-type squiggles when you wash it like mine, here’s a great way to use that texture to your advantage. And yes, this is my hair’s natural, freshly-washed texture.
For those looking for a messy bun for super long hair, here’s what I use. Soft, puffy, and romantic–everything a good updo should be. If my hair curls more than it did today, I like to pull some little bits out around my ears and neck. Also, if your hair gives you headaches when it’s up, splitting the weight like this is very comfortable.
Wow, I talked way too fast during the intro! Sorry about that. In fact, the intro in general isn’t that great. ( I really didn’t want to do another take.) For this video, we’re back in ye olde bathroom. I’ve figured out an angle were I can kind of see what I’m doing in the mirror. Yay!

(I’m not sure what’s wrong with the color–which setting on the camera I need to change or what.)
1. Part your hair and twist a section from the side. Pin it kind of towards the center-back. Repeat on the other side.
3. Next, with that section, you’re going to make a shell bun. Fold the section over your thumb and twist . . .
If your hair-do turns out a little crooked or one side is a little messy, just stick in a flower and pretend you meant for it to look that way. Remember, this it a low-stress, care-free look. Don’t worry about it or try to make too perfect.
