Step 5: Tuck in hair ends

Tuck in the ends of the hair around the donut.  Keep the hair in place by sticking in bobby pins.  Make sure that the bun is secure and will stay in place with the bobby pins.

Ideally, you don’t want the bobby pins to show.  However: 1) I was in a rush; 2) I was taking pictures one-handed; and 3) It’s Crazy Hair Day so…

Step 6: Place twigs and leaves in hair

Step 7: Don’t forget the pumpkin

Oops…I almost forgot that this is supposed to be a Fall Crazy Hair Day Style.  I also have to justify this random decorative pumpkin purchase from the craft store 😉  Remember I used these in the Easy DIY Fall Centerpiece?

Then, push the pumpkin in through the base of the bun.  I went for the top of the bun in the hopes that the pumpkin would stay in longer.Fall-Inspired Crazy Hair Day StyleFall-Inspired Crazy Hair Day StyleFall-Inspired Crazy Hair Day Style
