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?

    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 🙂

    @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!
