Braids in a bun are great for keeping your tresses well out of your way while you hit the gym but the hairstyle is also pretty enough to be worn to a casual outing or formal dinner. It is an extraordinary look that can go a long way. Braiding the hair before wrapping it into the bun can make it look more difficult than it actually is while still ensuring it is easy to do. The best part is that every time you do it, it’ll look a little bit different depending on how tightly or loosely you braid the hair. Switch out the bun for your personal favourite and wear it as an everyday hairstyle!
Before you begin, make sure you have everything you may need for this tutorial, including several rubber bands, a hairbrush, a hairspray and a few bobby pins to secure flyaways or loose ends. Now let’s get started with this extraordinary braided bun tutorial!
Step 1: Begin by pulling hair up into a high ponytail, and secure with a hair band. Comb out any tangles or flyaways around the ponytail to help make it look perfect and silky.
Step 2: Separate a small section of a hair on top of the ponytail and hold it with one hand.
Step 3: With this strand, begin to create a 3-strand braid. Use a small clear rubber band to secure the braid.
Step 4: Twist the end of the braid around to form a bun.
Step 5: You will want to use bobby pins to secure the braid against the head.
Step 6: Take the rest of your ponytail. Then create a pretty bun with your ponytail by twisting the end of your ponytail and wrapping it around itself. Secure it in place with a few bobby pins.
Step 7: Pin ends to secure.
Step 8: To make your braided bun a full-time masterpiece, give it another dose of hairspray to seal the look in place.
