Side Braid into Lower Braided Bun

Step-By-Step Tutorial


Summer here is getting hot and muggy!  I’ve been wearing my hair up almost always these last couple of weeks.  While I was on vacation a month ago, I created this gorgeous updo for you to try out.  It’s a great everyday style, or you could dress it up with a pretty clip and wear it on a special date night.


To begin, take a small section of hair from the side of your part with the most hair (mine is on the left, which looks right in the picture).  Braid the section by crossing the right side over the middle, and then the left side over the middle.  Pull apart the braid to loosen it and make it look fuller.  Then, pin the braid onto the side of your head with a couple of bobby pins.


Next, take two small sections of hair on either side of your head right by your ears.  Bring them towards the back of your head and secure in place with bobby pins.


Braid the rest of your hair in a regular braid crossing the left strand over the middle, and then the right strand over the middle.  Once you have reached the end of the braid tie it off with a clear elastic.  Pull on the braid to make it fuller.


Wrap the braid into a bun, pinning in place with bobby pins.  Tuck the ends of the braid inside the bun and pin with a few more bobby pins.
