Does anyone know how to make the standard bun that is commonly seen in competitions etc, something like what Anna has in attached picture.  I want to upgrade my extremely simple bun that I have done so far to something sleeker?  (Using fake-buns isn't an option as my hair is long and I end up looking like I have a second head!!)

For short hair inspirations there are a few latin ladies eg Joanna Leunis, Melinda Torokgyorgy

I have good success with a hair piece but my real question is how to you get this shiny mirror-like look to the hair? Is there a special product?  What can be used to achieve this look?  Lost the picture in the process of posting this - but any advice for me?

I've used hair gel but maybe there's something better...

Some-one suggested glueing hair sleek.....am not convinced by this prospect!!


I have seen some hairsprays that add shine (eg for blonde hair) - don't know if these are of use?

I just pile a ton of hairspray on mine. I imagine gel could work.
I've seen this recommended elsewhere, as well as not washing the hair the night before.

hairspray gets it flat (in particular if you run your hand over it with the hair dryer behind) but does not get it super sleek.  For that I think you need something with a gel-like texture... haven't tried the aveda stuff.  Does that set or is it pliable?

There is a product bySchwarzkopf called "got2b" brillian radiant Hair Glaze.  It is a professional quality glaze that gives you a polish finish.  I have some but have not used it yet but thought I would when I start back competing in the latin in the new season.  I can ony imagine that between that and a hairdryer the lights should reflect off my head.  If people use me to apply lipstick I'll know I've achieved that mirror finish.  Hmmm, then again I could always just go out and by a DEVO head piece.

You have to fight through a lot of crap before you find your way up out of the toilet. Sometimes I think I have a good hold on the rim then I slip back in.  Each time I don't sink quite as deep though. - Rugby

maybe there is a market in stick-on smooth-heads.  You could make the whole thing out of plastic since the 'hair' need not have any 'hair' quality at all...

DP tried to do my hair for a show dance, didn't came out too bad, he learned from a professional hair dresser, I only have front view picture. Took him one hour while normally pro hairdresser takes only 30 - 40 mins. He used tons of pins, and hair spray, gel, you name it, my hair is hard and stubborn, not easy to work with at all.

Yes you may, he'll practice on you though, and no guarantee of results;) he only knows one style- a high bun, could also be painful when he pulls your hair into a high ponytail. Its not that painful when an experienced pro hairdresser does that.
