I always had a thing for hair buns for two reasons. 1) Because they transform a bad hair day to a ‘Hello Gorgeous’ day. 2) Because I wasn’t able to wear a bun till date as my hair is too stubborn to bend into a knot. But now I have discovered that my hair does listen to Bobby Pins so tried this braided bun and sharing with you all the same.
- Bobby Pins
- Hair Pins/ Bun Pins
- 2 thin Elastics
- Holding Spray
Start with neatly brushed hair.
Grab all the hair to the side and secure into a pony tail with the help of an elastic.
Braid the pony till the end and secure with another elastic.
Start rolling as shown in the picture. You can take the help of rear mirror to make sure the rolling is done symmetrically. Roll till you reach the end of the braid and tuck the end into the bun.
Put a bobby pin at the point where you have tucked the end in. Now secure the bun by adding bobby pins around the bun. It took me 4-5 pins to get a secured bun. I have even used 2 hair pins/ bun pins to keep it safe from rolling out.
Final Look. Spritz any holding spray and smoothen the fly-aways.
That’s it you are very much done here. The short frontal layers and the bangs weren’t coming into the pony so I have pulled it to the front and curled them with a hot curler. This gives that slightly messy look.
Time Taken: 5-10 minutes.
Lasting Time: Till the bobby pins were removed. It did withstand even when I slept over it.
Look of the Day(LOTD)
Happy Sunday and Happy Preening!!!
