Pin Roll Bun 2: Curly Bun

This style is a more advanced version of the pin roll bun I showed you on Wednesday. Since each of the rolls are smaller, this technique produces tighter curls. Please read the flower bun instructions before trying this style.

Pin Roll Introduction

Basic Pin Roll Bun

1. Gather all your hair into a ponytail, but do not pull the hair through the last time producing a small loop. Pin the loop up. I forgot to take a picture of the loop pinned, sorry! You can see it in the next picture.

2. The next step is to separate the remaining hair into seven sections. Take a small section and pin it up and out of your way. Divide what is left in half. Divide one half into three sections. In this picture you can see one half over my left shoulder, the small section clipped up, and me holding one of the thirds in my right hand with the other two thirds in the middle.

3. Roll those thirds from one side into curls and pin them. I rolled them back/up which is opposite of the flower bun.

4. Roll the other side into three rolls, as well. Feel free to go back and adjust any of the curls; I needed to!

5. Unclip the small section and roll it up.  Pin the roll in the center to cover the hair tie.

Here’s the finished style from the other side.

The lovely resulting curls. I have no idea what happened on this shot with the color/lighting! My skin was green before I adjusted it.

Here’s another curl recycle. I twisted my hair like I was going to do a regular bun but stopped after one twist and let the curls hang down.

  1. I tried the last bun in my hair today! I LOVE IT! I’m posting pictures of it on my blog right now. I kind of put my own “twist” on it thought. I pulled a little section of my hair in front so it looks like fake bangs, without having to cut my hair!

  2. Wow! That is complicated!! I haven’t done my hair in anything special the last several days because I have been doing so much cleaning. I hope to try some more of your styles next week! 🙂

    To the KING be all the glory!

  3. Natasha, I commented on your blog; looks beautiful!

    Rebekah, It’s not that bad once you get your sections ready to go. Sometimes I cheat and only do 6 (2 on each side, 1 on the bottom, 1 in the middle) so I don’t have to come up with 7 even sections.

    Marian, About product, it depends. My hair sometimes does better with mousse, other times with gel. If I’m wearing the bun for it’s own sake, I will also use some hairspray. If I’m just trying to get curls, I will use water instead of spray with the gel or mousse.
