Protective Hairstyle of the Week: Quick Bun

Quick Bun – The fastest protective hairstyle ever! 


.. And one of my favorite updo’s to date. Here are a few pictures of my hair in my easiest updo protective styles. I was a bit lazy today, but this is a great way to keep my hands out of my head. Avoiding any chance of breakage.

Here are a couple pictures of my hair in its protective style. I was a bit lazy today, but this is a great way to keep my hands out of my head. Avoiding any chance of breakage. 

Rules for this protective style:

I do not use a brush, only my hands.
I do not use rubber bands on my hair.
I recommend ponytail holders without metal.

How I got this updo:

My hair was in twists (which helped stretch my hair a lot)

  • I unraveled them and sprayed with water
  • Then I applied aloe vera gel to my edges 
  • Flattened with my hands and began “bunning” tucking hair under with hair pins (tipped with plastic) ** Think Donut Bun***
  • Applied a scarf to lay my hair down..
  • After 15 mins removed scarf and applied head band.

Side note: when my hair was a lot shorter it was much easier to do a bun on top of my head, then to pull it to the back (all my hair didn’t reach).


Thats it! 5 min protective style!


Thinking of protective hairstyles, I cannot wait until I install mini twists in my hair…
