How to put braids in a bun

Step 1: Curl

Start by loosely curling your hair using the Undone Waves 1″ straight barrel from the Whirl Trio on a low heat setting. Curl each section in alternating directions and leave the ends out of the curl. This will give the style texture and more hold. 

Step 2: Braid

Divide your hair in half vertically, so you’ll have a section to the right and left of your part. Tuck your hair behind your ears and braid each section from the nape of the neck to the ends. Secure with a small elastic and then pull the braid apart by tugging at the outside strands of the braid.

Criss-cross the right braid on top of the left and pin in the middle of the braid leaving the tail out. 

Step 4: Cross Left
