I have never done much with my marley braids in way of styling. All I was ever interested in was being able to pull my hair into a high bun; but recently I have been getting bored of it and have ventured towards a modified version which is super simple yet very chic *-*
For this, all you need is an elastic band, hair pins and any form of accessory.
- Put band around head and pull upwards around braids to form what could be considered a giant bun.
- Arrange hair around elastic band the way you would for a regular bun
- Wrap hair around elastic band as you would a regular bun and pin in place
- Add accessory of choice for an extra umph! I used a handmade Ankara cloth rose.
I have also done a Janelle Monae inspired style that was also really easy to do. Many video’s are available on Youtube for this style as I didn’t take photos from different angles. It is truly an easy DIY!
