10. Prim and Proper
This is a tight bun worn lower than the High Bun I rocked poolside. It’s more conservative bun. I secured the twist in a pony tail, sectioned in two parts, and wrapped each one tight around the bun. The ends were tucked under to secure it on my head.
This was a fun trendy style to wear for a day out shopping in the Paris Flea Market. It’s similar to the Elegant look, but more complex.
I first sectioned the hair evenly across in two. I positioned the top section in a ponytail on the side. Since I had more hair, I braided the ponytail to keep it nice and tight and wrapped around into to bun.
The back half was sectioned in two across and placed in ponytails in the center, braided, and twisted around in a tight bun like the top.
12. City Girl
The City Girl look is one of my favorites especially when worn with a cute head band.
It dresses up any casual look. I worked the City Girl look while shopping in the Garment District. I left just enough out in the back to give me a full look, but still it was light enough that I didn’t get too hot with hair on my back.
The top was tied in a ponytail, sectioned in two, then wrapped around in a bun. The scarf coordinated with my look for the day.

Love all the great styles you mentioned in your blog Katrina and of course you look beautiful! Ive been looking for a summer hair style wear I dont have to play with my natural hair everyday and I can also look professional for work. Definitely will try your recommendation just need to find someone to do it for me at a reasonable price. Dont have patience like you to braid my own hair 🙂 Thanks Katrina for your inspiration and once again excellent work on this blog.
Thanks for checking it out! I think this style will look great on you!!
Does your head feel heavy when wearing the Senegalese twist in a bun? Do you recommend that my natural hair be straight before adding the hair or can i add the hair my natural curl pattern? Which option will blend best with my hair with minimal fuzziness. Thanks!
I think it depends on which hair you use. The Marley twist I recommend using your natural hair. The Kanekaleon hair worked with my natural hair but may be better if I would have blown it out. I may try that next time. I also used lots of Jam!
It was a bit heavy at first but I got use to it.
