When I tried to fit my hair underneath my graduation cap the first time, it was a total fail. I don’t think my head itself could fit underneath the cap. Okay I’m exaggerating a bit, but things were pretty tight.
I asked the bookstore for an extra-large, but I still couldn’t figure out a style that I wanted to wear that would fit my personality.
However, I was playing around in the mirror one day with the cap on my head and I just started rolling my hair to the side. Hence, this style.
By sweeping my hair to the side, technically I avoided trying to fit my hair underneath the cap. I blew my hair out on graduation day, but I didn’t blow it out in the tutorial.
This style has a retro vibe. It’s super easy, and makes you look “put together” without having to try very hard.
I just spoke to the marley hair gods and they told me to lay off the marley hair tutorials for a while. I think I’m going to listen to them.
I like marley hair buns and styles a lot because they (1) make your hair appear longer (2) make your hair look intricately styles (3) are easy to create in just a few minutes.
The hair I used is the Afro Marley Braid by Janet Collection. It’s really soft and malleable. The video tutorial for this hairstyle is below and it is very similar to my Christmas updo I did last December. The video for that is below as well.
