Pull-Thru Bun Updo


If you love to braid but want to try something new then this hairstyles is the next updo to try. It features a new technique that I have been seeing everywhere and this particular style is inspired by Annie from AnniesForgetMeKnots. I love her updo version of it but couldn’t ever get it right. I always had too much hair left over and needed to figure out a different way to style it on longer hair. It may look difficult at first but it is actually pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Give it a whirl and wow your friends with your cool new updo.

Pull-Thru Bun Updo
  • Step 1 / Begin with a part on the right side.
  • Step 2 / Separate out a front section of hair from the ears up to the back of the crown and clip it off. Tie off the bottom section with an elastic to use later on. Then let down the top portion.
  • Step 3 / Take a large section of hair from the part down to the left ear and tie it into a mini ponytail with a clear elastic band.
  • Step 4 / Next, take another section of hair, next to the previous section, and tie it off into another mini ponytail.
  • Step 5 / Take the hair from the first elastic band, split it in half, top and bottom, and pull the second ponytail through the middle of it. Pin this hair out of the way to work with the split ponytail.
  • Step 6 / Combine that split ponytail with a new section of hair and tie it off with another elastic band.
  • Step 7 / Let down the hair that was pinned and split it in half, top and bottom.
  • Step 8 / Take the new, second ponytail and lay it over the split ponytail, pinning it up and out and of the way.
  • Step 9 / Repeat steps 6 through 8 until reaching the right ear.
  • Step 10 / Remove the band from the bottom section of hair that was sectioned at the start and continue the previous steps incorporating this hair into the style, weaving the style down and back across the nape of the neck towards the left ear.
  • Step 11 / Once all the hair isย combined, take the top ponytail, split it, pull the second ponytail through the middle then wrap an elastic band around the split hair combining it once more.
  • Step 12 / Repeat step 10, splitting, wrapping, and tying it off until it reaches the ends ofย the hair.
  • Step 13 / When all the hair is braided, gently loosen the sides to create a full effect on each section.
  • Step 14 / Next, take the tail of the braid and wrap it in into a bun so it sits inside the top and bottom sections against the head.
  • Step 15 /ย Pin down the bun on the right and left sides and anywhere it feels loose.
  • Step 16 / Spray the style with hairspray and smooth down any stray hairs.
