How to create a low nape bun


James White Low Nape Bun

Add a little height to the crown of your head by lightly backcombing the hair on top by the crown.Back combing consists of lifting the hair and combing the hair down toward the roots, creating little knots in the hair.

Smoothly comb over the front section of hair and pull it toward the nape of the neck. Comb the sides down to meet it and gather it into a ponytail. Push the ends of the ponytail up and pin to your scalp. Allow the fringe to cover your forehead. Apply hairspray to keep hair in place. Place the tiara or bridal veil just before the crown, so the teasing is not crushed.

Photo shoots and fashion shows.  Working between my private salon clients, bridal work, session styling with photographers and in seminars for product companies. My fresh approach  has attracted national press. I believe hair styles should be refined and enjoy a non-compromising attention to detail to create quality.’
