EASY DIY BRAIDED BUN – HAIR TUTORIAL


Hello lovely! Today I have a new hair tutorial suitable for at least medium length hair, but it’s ok if it’s longer 😉 It’s actually kind of a 2 in 1 hairstyle. The first part can also be left as a half up half down style, and is also suitable for shorter hair. The second part is a piece of cake, a super duper easy bun, that can also be worn by itself if you’re in a rush. I really like the way it looks when these two are combined! By the way, does anyone else but me think that this has a bit of a Greek goddess vibe about it?

The first thing you’ll do is a dutch lace braid tie back. I’ve previously done a similar style in my Game of thrones hair tutorial, I just started a bit differently, so please check that out as well to see which version you prefer.

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Pick up a small piece of hair right above your ear and divide it into 3 strands.
  2. Start crossing the outer strands under the middle one. Each time you cross the upper strand under the middle, add a new slice of hair from the parting into that strand. So you’ll keep adding in new hair only from the top. Try to braid as close to your head as possible, so that you don’t end up with an ugly bulk when pulling the braid to the back later on.
  3. Repeat step 2 on the other side and tie both braids together in the back.
  4. Gather the rest of your hair into a low ponytail (when combined with the tie back, it might be necessary to first twist the sides a bit and pin them with bobby pins. Otherwise they might get too bulky once you complete the next step).
  5. Braid the ponytail, into a regular 3 strand braid and pull it apart for volume.
  6. Make a hole right above the elastic and flip the braid over and through the hole as many times as you need to be able to hide the ends. This way the braid will create a nice looking bun.
  7. Now you only have to stretch the braid out even more to make it fuller and pin everything to your head with bobby pins.

TIP:

Because of the length of my hair, I had to pull the braid through tightly twice, which is why the sides were getting a bit deformed without the twisting and pinning. If your hair is longer, try not to flip the braid all the way through before flipping the ends over again. This will keep everything smooth without any extra effort.

Let me know if you try out this out and tag me on Instagram @hairs_affairs to let me see your results!

Happy hairstyling! See you next time!
