Mastering the braided bun is hard. From gathering all your hair smoothly at the back without any flyaways to coiling the braid into a nicely shaped bun – the whole experience can be intimidating. However simply buns can appear to be, it is difficult to make them perfectly from the very first time. Thanks to the steps in this tutorial, this is no longer the case! We will teach you the secret to the perfect braided bun which takes only a few minutes to assemble!
Step 1: Begin by separating the crown section of your hair into a ponytail at the back of your head. For best results, use small clear rubber bands for this hairstyle to work. Your hair needs to be brushed and smoothed out for this braided bun so use a comb to make the ponytail perfect.Texturize your ponytail by pinching your hair at your crown to get some added volume.
Step 2 and 3: Now, take the section of your hair on the right and start braiding it into a three-strand brand. Braid your hair all the way down to the nape of your neck and secure with a rubber band.
Step 4: Do the same on the other side by braiding another classic three-strand braid.
Step 5: Join the two braids together at the nape of your neck.
Step 6: Make an inverted ponytail from these two braids.
Step 7 and 8: Next up, divide your hair into two sections and braid each one individually.
Step 9: Loosely pull on the edges of the braid to add volume in it.Gently pulling the braid plaits apart will create wider, bigger braids.
Step 10: Take the first braid, fold it and wrap it around the base of your ponytail until it gets back to the back of your head. Use a bobby pin to secure that first wrapped braid.
Step 11: Take the other braid and pin it underneath the first one.
Step 12: Finally, use hair spray and bobby pins to secure down any stray hairs and pieces falling out of the braids.
