I just wanted to let everyone know the story of The Wright Hair. I am fairly new to blogging about hair but I have been doing my little girls hairstyles since the day my oldest daughter was born. The first thing out of the doctors mouth was I hope you ordered a girl full of hair. When my 2nd daughter arrived we were not so lucky with the hair genes. She has thin short hair. It was with the frustrations I had trying to do my 2nd ones hair that I decided to start this blog. I figured if I struggled this much there must be others struggling too. I am a working mom and getting my girls ready every morning is the best time of the day for me. This is a time we get to bond without other distractions. Right now my girls and I are enjoying our time together. I am sure it will only be a short time before my oldest wants to do her own hair. But for now we invite you to join us on the Wrights Journey through hair. Because of being a working mom, sometimes we will do fancy dos and sometimes quick dos, other times the do's are dont's but we welcome everyone to come along for the ride.



I received this fun hair style from Mario Russo Salon,  I can't wait to try it out.  I hope you all enjoy!

In case you’re looking for any new “it” hair trends, Mario Russo, owner & lead stylist of Salon Mario Russo in Boston, has shared with us a fun variation of the sock bun, which happens to be one of his favorite looks for fall. Appropriately called the “Cinnabun,” this bun is actually more of a hair wrap than a traditional bun. For those of us who have cut up all our socks in hopes of creating a perfectly round sock bun – it’s time to set them aside and embrace the new “it” bun. Even better…unlike its namesake, this Cinnabun is guilt-free!

Below, please find Mario’s step by step tips on creating the Cinnabun as well as his insight on why this look is hot for fall.

Attention lovers of the sock bun – there’s a new style hitting the streets that’s as fun as it is elegant. Ideal for women with mid-length to long hair, the Cinnabun borrows from the symmetry and clean lines of everyone’s favorite indulgent treat in order to create a guilt-free hairstyle that is sure to turn heads. Perfect for a day at work or evening out on the town, this beautifully structured coil can be easily dressed up or dressed down. Want to add an extra something? The addition of a bedazzled thin headband or more casual stretchy headband can quickly change the look and feel of this style, making it adaptable for every occasion.

How to Score the Cinnabun

·         Begin this look with a classic blow-dry. Using a round boar bristle brush and hair drier on medium heat, smooth hair from roots to ends while blow-drying hair under.
·         Once hair is dry, apply a pea-sized amount of a smoothing serum to tame any flyaways. My go-to is Oribe Smooth Style Serum.
·         Using a fine tooth comb, begin to pull all of your hair to the back of your head. Sleekness is key for the front of this look – it should appear seamless and tight. Use the comb to achieve the desired smoothness in the front.
·         For extra interest, place a stretchy or decorate headband at crown of the head. This will help you to better achieve the smooth finish as well as give the style an added twist.
·         Gather hair into a ponytail at the back center of your hair and secure with an elastic.
·         Take a 1 to 1.5 inch of hair near the base of the ponytail and create a very small loop with the hair. The loop should loop under and face down towards the neck. Pin the small loop with bobby pins, fastening it under the elastic of the ponytail. Think of this as the center section of a flower. It will act as focal point for the rest of the Cinnabun.
·         Separate the remaining hair into two parts, one to the left and one to the right of the center loop.
·         Take the left section first, and loosely begin to wrap it around the loop. Lightly using a fine tooth comb, make sure the hair that’s being wrapped is smooth. As you begin to run out of hair to wrap, take a few bobby pins and secure the ends of the hair under and into the bun.
·         Take the right section next, and loosely begin to wrap it in the opposite direction around the loop. Again, lightly use a fine tooth comb to make sure the hair that’s being wrapped is smooth. Pin the ends under and into the bun.
·         Smoothness is key for the Cinnabun. Before finalizing the look with hairspray, take the fine tooth comb and go over any section of the bun that needs to be smoothed out.
·         To finish the style, liberally apply a strong hold hairspray all over the look. My favorite is MoroccanOil Luminous Hairspray.
