Holiday Hairstyles: Ornament

I'm in love with the look of faux hair on a bun.  It's kind of fun to add a splash of color once and a while. 
These are the supplies that we used for this Ornament Hairstyle and if you don't have faux hair you can use some colored ribbons.  I've just twisted this silver pipe cleaner into the same of an ornament top and then glued it to a hairpin.
Begin by gathering all the hair back into a ponytail and securing it with an elastic.  Lift one fold of your elastic and tuck in your faux hair or ribbons.
Now go ahead and slide a bun mold over the ponytail and spread the hair out evenly - making sure that your faux hair or ribbon is dispersed evenly as well.  Now place another elastic over the top of the mold to secure it. 
Break up an excess hair into sections and twist them individually.  Wrap the twists around the base of the bun and secure them in with bobby pins.
 Now take your pipe cleaner clip and stick it right into the top of your bun so that it now looks like an ornament. 
Simple and fun!
We will also have a video for our first few Holiday Hairstyles posts coming up this Friday!

So pretty! (even without the silvery thing) I could imagine doing something in soccer team colors or the like.
