Can you possibly add some clip-ins to make it fuller?

Great first try but i have noticed there are gaps in the bun and i can see through it also i am not a fan of being able to see the bobby pins in the front. 

Love the bottom two bun pics that Babypearls posted – you are gorgeous and can definately get away with your hair tightly pulled back off your face but you may need a hairpiece to make the bun appear fuller

Something like this, but a local salon may be a better option as you can colour match the hair to your existing hair

@Payless:  the other suggestions above will work also. Sally’s is overpriced IMO but ebay or a local beauty supply both have cheaper options (vs Sallys)

Check Amazon for REMY clip-in extensions, make sure you get human hair, you could probably get away with a 7-10 pc, they have good prices. I think given your length an 18″ set would be just fine. You can dye them to match you hair color if it’s not exact, they typically throw in 2 wefts that are smaller to sample dyes on them to match your color. You can heat them, wash them, etc, but I wouldn’t worry about spending too much on them if you’re only using them for some added volume. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I would maybe try something like this or the above two buns the PP posted. You can buy a bun helper or use a sock if you want it to be really round then just part/section off your hair so that you can wrap or whatnot the hair and give it shape. You should check out Kate w/ the Simple Things Blog her youtube channel has some good inspiration for different ‘do’s and you might be able to find some ideas to pull it all together. Definitely get some argan oil, it’ll help smooth out your hair. Your bun shape is off and you can see those pins pretty drastically. 

 

 

 

You could do a low bun like this as well. Hot rollers will be your best friend for getting the curl and volume needed for something like this!

@Payless:  It’ll work wonders on cutting down drying time, but it will also help to keep your hair smooth. I also forgot to mention that Karmin did a youtube vid a while back on pin-up inspired tuck curls, that may have another idea for executing yours. It may even be cute to do your top half and lose the bun and do vintage inspired waves to the side. I feel like you’re going for two looks here, I’d pick one or the other and master it.
