My inspiration for this hair style came from the first photo here.  Instead of creating pin curls, like the model in the photo, I used my pipe cleaner curls to make my big bun.  I started out trying to mimic this hair style perfectly.  But why?!  My micro locs are much shorter, smaller and curled differently.

The Lesson: Work with what you’ve got.  You don’t have to make a carbon copy of natural hair styles you would like to try.  Use inspirational photos as a springboard to create your own unique hair styles.
