When April started her primary school, I was having a concern that she might need to cut her hair short. Because we heard that some Chinese schools have a rule, that the girls' hair longer than the shoulder have to tie a bun. None of us in the house knows how to tie a bun. Luckily, later we found out that her school isn't this strict. Her headmaster stressed on no colourful hair accessories in school area, only blue, white and black colors hair ties are allowed in school. However, I saw many girls wearing colourful hair pins to school.
Nevertheless, I am still exploring method to tie a bun for April. Just in case, the school suddenly has enforced new rule. Last Friday, I managed to learn easy way to tie a bun after buying a "Doughnut" from pasar malam.
Step 1, tie up a pony tail. I have to apply some hair crystal oil to April's hair, in order to make a very tidy pony tail, as she has volumized hair since born.
Step 2, put her pony tail into the hole of the "Doughnut".
Step 3, I asked April to bend down her head, and look at her belly button. This step is to make her pony tail into a flower shape.
Step 4, tie up the bun with a hair rubber band. Pull all the hair end to the bottom of the bun. Tighten the hair end with a hair pin when necessary.
Step 5, decorate the bun with any accessories you like.
Today, I want to go pasar malam again to buy a smaller size "Doughnut", so that I can tie little May's hair into a bun also.
