    all you have to do is put your hair in a tucked ponytail.

    attach the pony by using hair pins. wrap the pony tail around your own pony tail and secure the hair down with hair pins.

    take a strand of hair and wrap it around the top to hide the track using a bobby pin.

    wrap the loose hair into the form of a bun and secure it with a bobby pin. if you want you can put a scrunchy or one of those ouchless bands around the finished product to make it look less obvious.

    22 inches seems like a thick bun. you may not have to cut the length, but cut the hair in the middle of the track so that you only have half a bundle if you want to.

    easily...im not a fan of weave, but i tried this for about a week in August when I was trying to transition to natural...I put the bun on the top of my head and had a sweep in the front. Here's the steps:

    1. put you hair in a ponytail

    2. wrap the edge of the weave around the base of the ponytail

    3. pin the weave (I used 100% human hair...the brand was Bio Collection) with bobby pins close to your scalp

    4. blend your real hair with the fake hair

    5. start wrapping your hair into a bun

    6. pin the bun down and...

    WAH-LAA! A nice fake bun! /images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Hope that helps! /images/graemlins/wink.gif
