Introduction: Braided Buns
This is an easy, quick hairstyle that looks pretty and keeps the hair out of your face! This hairstyle works on all hair types (well it has to be long enough) so to prove it, I did it on myself. I have thick, curly, course hair, which also gets frizzy a lot. This hairstyle was relatively easy to do on myself, but it my be easier with straight hair.
On to the hairdo!
Step 1: Materials
For the Braided Buns, you will need:
A Large clip to section off hair
Two large ponytail holders
Two small elastics
Several bobby pins to hold the style in place
Step 2: Hair Parting
Start by brushing out your hair to make sure that it is smooth. I know mine doesn't look combed out, but trust me, it is. Make a part down the middle all the way down your head. It doesn't have to be perfect, as you can clearly see mine is not. Use either the large clip or a ponytail holder to hold one of the sections out of the way.
Step 3: Making the Ponytails
Taking one of the large ponytail holders, bring one section of your hair into a ponytail near the top of your head, or where you want your buns to be placed. You can choose to do these on the side or the back of your head, as well. Repeat to the other side, making sure that they look like they have been reflected over the middle hair part. Again, this doesn't have to be perfect.
Step 4: Braiding Your Hair
Take one of the ponytails, and divide it into three sections. Start braiding your hair all the way down, and then securing it with a small elastic. You can just do a regular braid. or you can get creative and do a fishtail, or even a rope twist. Repeat the braid to the other side, and secure with an elastic. You can choose to pancake (pull out the edges of the braid to make it look larger) the braid if you wish, but, as you can see, I have enough hair.
Step 5: Forming the Buns
Take the end of one of the braids, and wrap them around to form a bun shape. Make sure you like the way it sits, and then secure with bobby pins. Repeat to the other side. You can even add in a bow, if you wish, like I did.
