How To: Low-Bun + Braids

January 17, 2017

Whenever the weather gets bad in New York, I basically never want to do my hair. So a low-bun becomes my go-to. As much as I love low-buns, I sometimes want to jazz it up a bit and make it look like I tried, so this is what I came up with. It takes another extra minute in the morning, and looks like I made a little bit more of an effort.

Step 1:

First, if I have the time, I like to curl my hair. This just makes the low-bun stay a little bit better.

Step 2:

I like to just basically fold my hair in half and secure it with a hair tie. Then with the extra piece sticking out, I tuck it over where the hair tie is showing and secure it with a bobby pin. It looks like it’s really complicated, but it really isn’t. For this hairstyle, I left a couple inches out in the front that I’m going to be braiding them.

Step 3:

Last, just take the extra pieces and braid them and then secure them at the back of your head and under the bun. And ta-da! You have a low-bun that looks like you also made an effort!
