The Avocado Bun Video

After I posted about my bridesmaid birdcage veils, Miss Dumpling and Miss Sea Breeze asked how I did my hair for the veil modeling, and I decided to do a little video to show you how insanely easy it is. I’m sorry that the fan in the background is so loud and distracting, and that the quality of the video isn’t that great (I had to optimize it to a very low quality in order load it onto YouTube) but I was rather impressed with how fabulously my little Pia II handled my first attempt at video making.

Certainly let me know if you have any questions, and good luck with your own hair trials if you decide to do something similar for yourself on your big day!

Alas, don’t ask me why I started with “Today I am going to show you…” which makes it sound like I do this for a living or something. I have been watching too many late night infomercials while I plan my wedding. :)

Will you be doing your own hair for your wedding?

    Sweet! My hair is really thin and different lengths, but I’ll try it. I can’t believe how perfect your hair is. You rock, Avo!

    Miss Avocado you are so sweet! I was actually just watching this and you commented on my blog and it was like seeing you for real! And I loved the story and how you elbow suavacado. Boys are clueless about such things, eh? Funny how you both see ‘trendy’ as bad though!

    Avo that was too cute and informative all rolled up into one! And perfect for a person like me… who never does anything with her hair

    I am a waitress and have to wear my hair up for work…. and it has to be either braided or in a bun, which gets boring! I LOVED your video! I am definitely going to try it out!!!

    I am so trying this ‘do this weekend. Yes, I AM going to be doing my own hair for my wedding so I am really extra hoping (…er, something like that) that this will work with my thin hair. I think its longevity will for sure beat curling-iron curls in that Caribbean humidity. Avo, you ROCK!

    Your hair is so lovely. I don’t think mine would behave half as well. I’m going to have to get me some bobby pins & give it a try.

    Very nicely done, with the youtube and the hairstyling and the posting. Tres Creative and completely, unflappably adorable.

    PS- When I saw the title of this entry I thought it was like a workout video for my tush. A little disappointing that it wasn’t :)

    @Mrs. Cream Puff: Doesn’t it make you feel all fancy?
    @Miss Sea Breeze: I am sure it will look bee-u-tiful on you!

    @Petra: Petra I am thoroughly freaking out right now! My little avocado self is demonstrating hair on the Glamour website. Is this what it feels like to be famous? Thanks for the tip!

    For anyone considering this hairstyle but isn’t lucky enough to have thick hair or not quite so much coordination with bobbypins, you can achieve the same look by buying a doughnut/bun shaper from most hair places or eBay for about 5$. Really help to hold the look stable!
