If you’ve never experimented with this oh-so-cool hairstyle before, we’ve got you covered with an easy-peasy step-by-step guide to recreate the look effortlessly.

how to make a braided bun

Step 01: Smoothen out your hair by running a wide-toothed comb through it. Make sure you get rid of tangles or else you won’t be able to perfect this hairstyle.

Step 02: Gather all your hair into a ponytail at the spot you want the bun to be. For a low bun, place the ponytail at the nape of your neck, whereas, for a top-knot, place the ponytail at the centre of your head. Once you decide on the placement, secure your ponytail with an elastic hair tie.

Step 03: Now, start braiding the ponytail in a regular three-strand braid.

Step 04: Continue braiding till you reach the end of your hair. Secure the braid with another clear elastic.

Step 05: Now, it’s time to bun it up! Wrap the braid around the hair tie to make a braided bun

Step 06: Pin the braided bun with the help of a few bobby pins. Spritz some hairspray so that the style remains in place. To add more oomph to your hairstyle, wear a delicate studded hairband to finish off the look
