Braid Wrapped Low Bun

Prom is just around the corner and I have been trying out some different styles for new tutorials. This one happened on accident but I love how simple it is. It’s created by wrapping two braids around a low bun and embellished with a pretty gold ribbon.

Updos are definitely a trickier to do and I honestly try to get better at every time I do them. Sometimes they work out splendidly and other times I want to redo the whole thing.Β I think this one is an easier style and one that can be mastered by almost anyone. I hope you give it a try and let me know what you think!

Braid Wrapped Low Bun

  • Step 1 / Create a bit of volume by back combing the hair at the back of the crown.
  • Step 2 / Smooth down the top layer of hair to hide the teased portion.
  • Step 3 / Separate a portion of hair from the ears to the back of the head pinning off the top portion.
  • Step 4 / Separate the bottom hair into two halves, left and right.
  • Step 5 / Braid each portion into a regular braid and tie off the ends with a clear elastic.
  • Step 6 / Let down the top portion and wrap the hair into a low bun directly over the braids.
  • Step 7 / Cross the braids in opposite directions around the bun and secure them in place.
  • Step 8 / Wrap a ribbon above the braids and pin down the ends under the bun.

      Thank you, Sophia. The hair piece in this post is a ribbon that I found on Etsy. I also look at Forever 21 and Ulta for hair accessories (:

    I’m reading your blog and trying to do those hairstyles you create for 2 years from Hungary. I love this blog, it’s genious!

    But I would have a request… I’ve seen this movie: Pitch Perfect when it came out. And there’s Beca’s hairstyle that looks impossible to do for me. Could you figure it our how to create it, and make a tutorial, please?
    This is it:

    Thank you forward!

    P.s.: Congratulations for the baby, I’m glad to know that both of you are alright!
