Need to put your hair up in less than a minute? Try this easy braided bun hairstyle that works in both curly and straight hair.
I’m trying to get over my fear of making videos (and total lack of technical ability!) with a series of curly hair videos that I made while I was staying on Hayman Island.
In the tropics, the weather can be a little bit wild as you’ll see in the video. My hair is blown around and is pretty frizzy, but if I can do this style in a storm, you’ll master it in no time at home.
Don’t worry, the storm didn’t last long and a few minutes later the sun came out as you’ll see in my next video tutorial.
1 minute hairstyle – Braided bun in curly hair
- Split your hair into three equal sections.
- Do a basic braid (plait) – cross the left section over the middle, then the right over the left and repeat to braid your hair to the end.
- If you prefer a side bun (like I do) angle the braid over your shoulder.
- Twist the braid up and around to form a bun. Pin in place with bobby pins.
Curly hair stays in place easier than straight hair. If you have straight hair, I recommend finishing the braid with a small clear hair elastic before twisting it into the bun. This will stop your braid unravelling and make it easier to pin in place.
