So sim­ple and gor­geous! What do you think ladies? Would you rock this?

This pic is aaal­l­l­ll over Face­book lol I’ve seen this video before but nev­er tied the two togeth­er.

I think I can rock this with my dreads. It’ll be nap­py and fly.

Love! Thank you for shar­ing.

i prefer to use an old stock­ing instead of a string. it gets caught in the hair less. I tried to do this style the oth­er day but end­ed up doing a sans hair donut bun, seen in day 30 of my 31days 31 styles chal­lenge below.

She said in the video it is a strip of stock­ing

This is inge­nious! I am a huge fan of buns and I love how she offered a new tech­nique that I can use. I nev­er thought of pin­ning the twists into an “anchor” twist in the cen­ter, LOVE IT!

Nice!

Ahhh yes! The top knot/bun is one of my go to styles–love it! So easy and classy. Also, Nicole Marie Melton is gor­geous!

Love­ly hair style! The twist­ed ends are a nice touch — it pro­tects the ends of the bunned hair. I will try this and may­be even add it to my list of sta­ple pro­tec­tive styles (buns and updos).

Cute will try tomor­row , Thanks! ;)

OMG!!! I have been wear­ing two strand twists since being natural(1yr) because I let my hair “intim­i­date” me. But I think I will give this try. It looks so easy and sim­ple!!!

Me too!I’ve been hid­ing under lace fronts for near­ly the whole 2 years I’ve been nat­u­ral! Then got the courage to 2 strand twist for a few weeks now (in updos).I’m try­ing this! Doing an updo kind of chal­lenge atm to keep my hair pro­tect­ed and to help it get past the usu­al shoul­der length I always reached when relaxed but nev­er got past!

WoolyWoman

I love the sim­plic­i­ty of the hair style, it is very clas­sic!

KnottyNatural

Cute! I’m wear­ing this style as we speak and it’s a sta­ple pro­tec­tive style!
