Step 1: Begin this tutorial with a wavy hair. If your hair is naturally straight, consider curling it a bit to add texture.
Step 2: Divide your hair into three equal parts and secure each one into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. Consider wrapping it with a clear rubber band as it is easier to hide in finished styles.
Step 3: Begin braiding the ponytails. No braiding skills? No problem! Divide the hair into three strands. Cross the right strand under the centre strand and then cross the left strand under the centre strand. Following the same technique, continue braiding until you reach the end. Then, use a clear rubber band to secure the braid. Once braided, use your fingers to loosen the braid and make it messier, by pulling on the braid in different areas. You can also backcomb sections of each braid if it isn’t looking very full.
Step 4: Grab one braid and roll it up to form a beautiful bun. For best results, start with a small circle and keep wrapping the braid around it.
Step 5: Pin the first braid in place to ensure it will stay in place all day long.
Step 6: Do that with all three braids, then pull any areas that still need to be filled in and add more bobby pins if needed. Depending on how long your hair is, you can either spiral the braids together or just fold each in half.
Step 7: Next, use bobby pins to secure the braids in place. If you have heavier hair, you may need to use more pins to keep the bun from falling down. As you can see, this easy braided updo look can take you on a romantic getaway on Valentine’s Day or get you through that important business meeting!
