The other day, someone told me I looked like Cara Delevigne from the movie Valerian.

I found a picture of her wearing a hairstyle similar to this one and thought it was such a fun, summer hairstyle. It’s a great heatless style and would even work on wet hair too. Wear it to the beach or the pool to keep your hair off your neck and out of the way! Thank you so much for watching! xoxo, Missy

5 Dutch Braids High Bun Supplies:

  • Rattail comb
  • Hair sectioning clips
  • Bobby pins
  • Paddle brush
  • Hair band
  • Medium-hold hairspray

5 Dutch Braids High Bun Instructions:

  • Step 1 / Start by dividing out a small section of hair along the top of the head by creating two part lines and clipping down the bottom hair.
  • Step 2 / With this top section of hair create a dutch braid by crossing the side strands under the middle strand while bringing new sections into the braid until the braid reaches the crown.
  • Step 3 / Continue the braid a little further down and then slide a bobby pin over the bottom so it doesn’t unravel.
  • Step 4 / Now divide out a similar sized section of hair on the right side of the head and repeat those same steps creating a second dutch braid.
  • Step 5 / Then divide out a third section on the left side of the head and create a third braid.
  • Step 6 / Now create two more dutch braid with the two remaining sections of hair above both the left and right ears.
  • Step 7 / Once all five braids are done, all of the hair together at the crown and wrap it once with a hair band.
  • Step 8 / Then remove the bobby pins from the ends of the braids and unravel them.
  • Step 9 / Spread the hair around the hair band before wrapping the hair band twice more over the hair to form the base of the bun.
  • Step 10 / Loop the ends back towards the hair band and tuck them in.
  • Step 11 / Now pull on the edges of the bun to tighten it against the head and make it a little fuller.
  • Step 12 / Then pin down any edges of the bun where the hair band shows through.

I love throwing my hair into a ponytail during the hot, summer heat.

Tossing in two dutch braids is a super, simple way to make your everyday pony a little extra cute. This style works best on second or third day hair when it’s a little too dirty to wear down but not dirty enough to commit to a messy bun.

Try it with wet hair after hopping out of the pool or dress it up for a fun night out with friends! Thanks so much for reading! Have a great weekend – xo, Missy

Today’s tutorial was inspired by the Lace Braid Wrapped Bun. I love the creativity behind that style but wanted to create a similar tutorial that was done in a more basic way. The method behind this look feels more “classic” and I love that the bun isn’t the usual messy bun that I love to do. I think it gives this style a completely different feel and I hope the technique is fun and new for you to learn.

I’m currently making a list of new tutorials to film over the next few weeks so if there is anything that you’d love to see in an upcoming tutorial, be sure to let me know in the comments below! xo, Missy

Double Braid Wrapped Roll Bun Supplies:

  • Rattail comb
  • Bobby pins
  • Clear elastic band
  • Medium-hold hairspray

Double Braid Wrapped Roll Bun Instructions:

  • Step 1 / Begin by parting the hair where you normally part it. I’ve placed mine on the right side.
  • Step 2 / Divide off a section of hair at the crown and pin down the right side before wrapping the left side over the top and pinning it down with more bobby pins.
  • Step 3 / Next separate out the back section of hair by creating part lines behind both ears and bringing the side hair forwards, over the shoulders.
  • Step 4 / Take the back section and tie the hair together, near the bottom, with a clear elastic band.
  • Step 5 / Roll this section upwards towards the head and pin it in place with bobby pins.
  • Step 6 / Now take the hair on the right side and divide it into two sections, a top and bottom.
  • Step 7 / Wrap the bottom section over the top of the bun and pin it in place with bobby pins.
  • Step 8 / Then do the same thing with the hair on the left side, taking the bottom section, wrapping it over the bun and pinning it underneath with bobby pins.
  • Step 9 / With the hair on the right side, begin a french braid and then switch to a lace braid so you’re only adding in hair from along the hairline.
  • Step 10 / Once all of the hair is brought into the braid, continue braiding the section to the bottom.
  • Step 11 / Now pull on the edges of the braid to make it fuller.
  • Step 12 / Lay it over the top of the bun and pin it in place with bobby pins, tucking the ends into the bun.
  • Step 13 / Repeat the same steps with the hair on the left side creating a second lace braid.
  • Step 14 / Stretch out the braid by pulling on the edges.
  • Step 15 / Lay the braid over the bun and secure it underneath with bobby pins.
  • Step 16 / Set everything in place with hairspray and smooth down flyaways.

Two of my most requested tutorials are everyday hairstyles and half updos.

This hairstyle is a little fancier than your typical everyday style, but I think it’s so gorgeous and wearable for so many different occasions.

This look was inspired by @hairandmakeupbysteph on instagram; she always posts the most beautiful styles. I hope you enjoy the tutorial and be sure to let me know what you think in the comments section. Thank you so much for watching! xoxo, Missy

To prep my hair for this style, I curled all of it away from my face with a 1″ curling iron.

  • Step 1 / Begin by parting the hair on the right side, though you could part it wherever you normally prefer.
  • Step 2 / Divide out any hair to frame the face and then a larger section on the heavy side of the part and clip this hair out of the way.
  • Step 3 / Pick up a small section near the part and divide it into three smaller pieces.
  • Step 4 / Create a french braid crossing the side strands over the middle strand while incorporating new sections into the braid and working down towards the left temple.
  • Step 5 / Now braid the section a little further down and then go back over the braid and gently pull on the edges to make it a little fuller.
  • Step 6 / Slide a bobby pin over the bottom and smooth down any flywaways with hairspray.
  • Step 7 / Let down the front section of hair and create a fishtail french braid. So pick up a section near the part and divide it into two pieces.
  • Step 8 / Cross small sections from one side over to the opposite side while incorporating new sections into the braid until it reaches the left temple.
  • Step 9 / Now only bring in hair to the left side of the braid until the braid reaches the left ear.
  • Step 10 / Then braid the section to the bottom before pulling on the edges to make it fuller.
  • Step 11 / Then slide a bobby pin over the bottom so it doesn’t unravel.
  • Step 12 / Now create a second french braid with the hair on the right side of the head until it reaches about an inch above the right ear.
  • Step 13 / Braid the rest of the section to the ends and slide a bobby pin over the bottom.
  • Step 14 / Now pick up a section of hair on the right side underneath the previous braid and braid this section in a regular fishtail braid, dividing it into two sections, taking small pieces from one side and crossing it over to the opposite side while working all the way down to the bottom.
  • Step 15 / Go back over the braid, pulling on the edges to make it fuller and slide a bobby pin over the bottom.
  • Step 16 / Next bring all four braids around to the back of the head.
  • Step 17 / With the top two braids, create a gap in the left braid and pull the right braid through the gap before pinning the braids against the head.

For today’s tutorial, I thought it’d be fun to share my two favorite messy buns.

Whenever I don’t want to do my hair, I throw it into a messy bun. It’s so simple and quick and I can usually get it right on the first try. I have featured these in tons of other tutorials but I love having a dedicated video just for this because I get asked all of the time how I do them.

There is an older tutorial showing how to do these but I tried to edit this one without any cuts so hopefully you can see what I’m doing more easily.

Let me know if you’ve already mastered these buns and which one you like best! Thank you so much for watching! xoxo, Missy
