[HOTD] Japanese Style Bun and Roots

19 April 2010

I didnt style my hair as I wasn't going out. Haven't been out for the past week. Stayed in to study as those who followed my twitter, had saw a lot of tweets of my studying hours, work, stress etc haha. It'll be like this until 4th June when my last exam finishes. I did post an advance apology on my twitter:
"would like to apologise in advance for my foul language on twitter/fb/in person (may bite your head off)/txt etc from now til 4th june".
Yep, I'm under a lot of stress at the moment. :'(

I remember seeing this style in a Japanese magazine and thought I'd try it out. Tried to get it at all angles but getting a picture from the back was the hardest. This is a different type of bun than I did in a past HOTD. Pictures and please excuse my roots:

 ^Only took a side profile as I had no makeup on and I was breaking out a hell of a lot due to stress. >< Looks like im wearing one of them hair bun wigs due to my roots. Haha


If you follow my twitter, you know that I posted this picture a few days ago and said it was 2 inches worth of roots. Yes, I did actaully measure it. Haha. I'll be redying it on Sunday, so I will do a post on before and after pictures as well as the process. xD So this week, I'm being extra nice to my hair. Not using any heat tools or products, just shampoo, condition and air-dry. xD Then dye it on Sunday before third semester of university officially starts and exams ruin my life.
