Braided Bun How-To

This hairdo is incredibly simple and a great updo to do quickly before you go out.

First, start off with the right tools. These tiny elastic bands come in all different colors (these are clear, but you can get them to match your haircolor). I now understand that no two bobby pins are created equal. I always used the Goody brand from the grocery store and they never held my thick, fine hair up. These bobby pins are the professional stylists brand and they are amazing. If you can get your hands on some, I definitely recommend it.

Start by separating your hair into three equal ponytails and holding them back with an elastic.

Take the middle section and braid it.

Then, twist the braid around itself into a bun and secure with bobby pins. I didn’t secure the end with an elastic, but you can if you choose.

Go to either side and braid one section. When you have finished braiding it, fold it over the middle bun and wrap around the unbraided section on other side and secure with bobby pins. I tucked the ends into the middle bun, so that they wouldn’t stick out.

Lastly, braid the remaining section of hair and twist it under the middle bun, securing finally with bobby pins. I used two larger bobby pins to secure the entire bun as one to hold longer.

And you’re done! How easy was that? And now you look super pulled together and it only took you five minutes!
