What a beautiful day, perfect for a princess-style updo. I made 4-strand lace braids on either side of my head, then put the length of my hair into a big bun. A friend asked how many clips it takes to hold my hair in place in a bun like this one. Usually I make my buns with 2 medium size clips in the center, and 3 to 5 small clips. If I have a stray section of hair, I might add an extra clip or a bobby pin to put it in place.
