The hairstyle trend of the moment is the braided bun. Both simple and sophisticated, this is the perfect hairstyle to wear all year round. Find out how to create a magnificent braided bun in just a few easy steps.
Braid or bun? Bun or braid? What a dilemma! But why choose when you have the opportunity to have both and these two hairstyles are ultra trendy this spring/summer 2021? The braided bun, at the crossroads of the bucolic braid and the chic bun, is an elegant hairstyle and accessible to all. It gives off the head, is out of the ordinary, and allows you to sublimate any outfit. It is not for nothing that the queens of the elite like Kate Middleton adore it.
If you want to complete your trendy outfit this season, there's nothing like the braided bun to give your look that extra chic and glamorous touch. The braided bun can be done in different ways, in "combed-disheveled" hairstyle mode or more strictly according to the desires and the occasions. The braided bun trend is particularly popular with future brides but also adapts very well for any type of event and even every day.
If you have long hair and want to break out of your usual hair routine, or just adorn yourself with a cute, quirky hairstyle, you are going to love the braided bun. This hairstyle requires certain know-how, but does not require special equipment and is done in just a few minutes. Here is the list of what you will need to make your braided bun: bun pins · a fine comb; a round brush; several small rubber bands; lacquer and flat tongs.
The realization of a braided bun is done in several very distinct steps. While this hairstyle requires focus and precision, it can definitely be done at home. Here are the steps to follow for a successful braided bun:
Part your hair into three sections and gather your hair into a very loose ponytail, keeping two sections of hair on either side of the head out of the elastic. Separate the right strand into three or four, then braid part of it, without going to the ends. Then secure it to the side of your head using flat pliers. Step 4: Make other partial braids with the rest of the strands. Gather all the small braids into a big braid, and attach this braid to the back of your head with a flat clip, above the elastic of the ponytail. With the strand to the left of your head, make a single full braid, up to the tip. Then, come and fix it above the elastic of the ponytail. Then make several braids with the hair of the ponytail and each time bring the braids on the elastic by fixing them. Finally, by gradually raising the last braids, the bun will take shape.
The braided bun has a big advantage: it is very versatile! As effective for going to the office as it is for a wedding, it really adapts to all occasions. The braided bun is a fairly flexible hairstyle, which can be more or less elaborate depending on the look you want to achieve. It is both spring and winter and adapts as much to a summer dress as to a New Year's Eve outfit for the end of the year celebrations.
For a cocktail, a professional lunch, a dance party, or even for everyday wear to change a little from the ponytail or the classic bun, the braided bun is a simple and refined hairstyle that brings originality. Made with many small braids gathered together, or faster with a few thicker braids, it will be more or less sophisticated depending on your desires. In short, you can decline the braided bun in multiple ways!
