Your how-to guide: Achieve the hottest updo of 2018
Want to be one of the first to wear this popular style? Perfect: Let’s get braiding! All you’ll need for this style is five minutes, a couple of hair ties, hairpins and hairspray. Ready? Here come the instructions for this trendy braid-bun:
- Gather your hair into a high ponytail at the crown of your head, secure with a hair tie.
- Braid the ponytail to the ends and secure with a hair tie. Tip: For more volume, gently pluck the braid width-wise to loosen it up a little.
- Wrap the braid loosely around the hair tie at the base of the ponytail, and fix the end of the braid to the bun with hairpins.
- If you prefer the trendy messy look, loosen a few strands. Finish with hair spray – and that’s it. You’re now sporting the most stylish updo of the year!
