DIY: Braided Bun Up-Do

  • Published on April 26, 2016

    Looking for a fun style to show off at your next event? Try this easy DIY Braided Bun Up-Do! Today’s TuesTorial comes from Amanda Villanueva (Cosmetology Student at La’ James International College in Cedar Rapids).

    What you need:

    • 4 Hair Elastics
    • Bobby Pins
    • Hairspray

    Step 1: Create 2 low ponytails.

    Step 2: Braid each ponytail into a classic three strand braid.

    Step 3: Wrap one braid up and over the second braid. Use bobby pins to secure the braid in place.

    Step 4: Wrap the second braid around the first ponytail & into any open spaces. Make sure to hide the elastic bands & then secure in place with bobby pins.

    Step 5: Pull apart the braids to give it a loose & messy look. Use hairspray to hold the bun in place and smooth any fly aways.  *TIP: Messy is in so no need to worry about all the little hairs. 

    …. and now the Final Look!

    Beautiful job Amanda! Thank you for the great tips & for participating in today’s #LjicTuesTorial!
