BUN WITH BUILT-IN BRAID
Rainy or hot days call for a hairstyle that protects the strands from moisture and sweat. To be impeccable in the morning until the end of the afternoon, it is worth opting for a charming look that ensures that the locks do not move.
A braided bun is a great option for owners of long strands and all textures, from super smooth to curly.
The hairstyle principle is similar to that of the side braid close to the scalp: owners of skinny strands can apply a small amount of hair wax before beginning the braiding so that the locks are more full-bodied.
BRAIDED BUN AT HOME
FOLLOW THE STEPS TO MAKE A BRAIDED BUN AT HOME THAT GOES FROM WORK TO INFORMAL PARTIES:
1. Start with your hair loose and washed. Like the model, it is worth applying a little capillary wax on the strands to give more texture and firmness for excellent hair.
2. Split the wires in the middle of the head.
3. Separate a lock from the front of the head and divide it into three parts.
4. Make a traditional braid and pull a lock from the temple. Incorporate it into the strand in the middle of the braid.
5. With each braid, a lock of the temple or the braid’s top must be attached to the middle of the hairstyle. Once, a strand is pulled from the temple (bottom part of the braid already made) and, on the next braid, a strand that starts from the other side of the braid; in the middle of the head. In image 8, it is easier to see the traces of the upper part of the head.
6. Continue incorporating strands on both sides of the braid (“feeding” the braid always in the middle strand) until it passes the back of the ear.
7. From the ear, finish the braid normally, with the strands already incorporated previously, and secure the tip with silicone elastic. Repeat the process on the other side of the head until you have two braids embedded in the head’s sides.
8. Pin the rest of the hair in a ponytail.
9. Use a very tight silicone rubber band.
10. Make a normal bun with the ponytail, wrapping the hair in the elastic that holds them.
11. Attach the bun ends with hairpins of the same color as the hair for a more natural result or, if you prefer, end the bun with a larger silicone elastic.
12. Take one of the side braids and wrap the bun with the braid counterclockwise. Depending on the angle at which the braid was made, it will be necessary to twist the braid so that the finish is better.
13. Secure the tip of the braid around the bun with the help of a few clips.
14. With the braid on the opposite side, wrap the bun in a clockwise direction. The idea is that the two braids involve all the angles of the base of the bun.
15. Hide the second braid under the first braid and secure it with a few clips.
16. Apply a little fixing spray to prevent any new or unruly wires from getting out of place, and you’re done!
