Bun with Kinky hair Extensions (Marley hair)

So!!!!! i just got my hair out of kinky twists (kinky twist update coming soon), and i had a graduation ceremony to attend by the weekend.Against my better judgement to hang on to my kinky twist for a while longer, i gave in to taking them out because i missed my hair terribly.

Now i was reunited with my kinks but.......clueless on what to do with my hair, it sure can be stressful thinking of what style to wear especially when there's an event coming up (don't want to wind up looking like a hot mess cause my kinks are very unpredictable)

The hair style that won the style search was " Bun with kinky hair Extensions (Marley hair)".

Here's what i came up with by the wee hours of the night.






I liked the way the the extension blended with my hair, below is a picture of my hair with out the extension, Please excuse the sickly looking scrunchy, i actually used rubber  threads to hold the hair at the center, not so sure it qualifies to be called a pony tail though...


 hair with out the extension


Here's what i used to create the style

Bobby pins
Alcohol free styling gel
Elastic Rubber bands
Kinky extension (Royal silk )
Satin Scarf

Hair preparation 

  • I worked on freshly washed and conditioned hair
  • Partially Stretched with braids (yea partially cause i took out the braids before it was properly dry) 

Here is a video i watched on how to make this style

How i did mine


  • I put my hair into one pony tail and secured the fly away's with bobby pins
  • Made my edges and the top layer of my hair smooth with gel
  • Attached the kinky extension with an elastic rubber band to the base of the pony tail
  • Now this step was a bit difficult but here is what i did to ensure the extension was secured to the pony tail, i separated  two small sections from the extension then wrapped them one after the other around the pony tail before proceeding to make the bun.
  • Tied down my hair with my satin scarf and went to bed 
  • The next morning i untied the scarf and voila!!!



Thoughts on this style

  • Not bad for my first try, would definitely be trying this again soon   
  • Would Allow my hair to properly dry in the braids for a better stretch(wasn't so patient the first time)



In all i had fun with my hair looking forward to a repeat soon.
