How to: EASY Effortless Bun w/ Braid Detail


hey guys today’s hairstyle is this
really beautiful and effortless low bun with some chunky braid detailing this
look was inspired by Emma Chen artistry on Instagram I absolutely love
everything she does but I was so drawn to this look because of how effortless
and chic it was and although braids are usually
associated with summer hairstyles I think this would look so great paired with
like a chunky turtleneck for fall I’m going to break down this hairstyle for
you guys and make it nice and simple so let’s get started for today’s hair
tutorial I will be using two of my 1 clip weft from my Luxy Hair extensions
these are in the color ash blonde and what I like to do is just clip the one
extension to the other right underneath the clip like this that way when you put
it into your braids there’s only one weft which is really easy to hide a deep
part is necessary for this hairstyle and the best way to do this is line your
part up with the arch of your eyebrow use the back of a comb and just draw a
line straight back now I find it easiest to a section away all of the hair that I
won’t be using so place your comb at the back of your part and part your hair
across the back of your head and tell your it about your temple and then you
want to part your hair down to the middle of your neck so it should look
similar to this and go ahead and clean up your lines and you just want to
tightly secure all of that hair out of the way for now with that clipped away
we can section off the front section if you want that swooping bang so place
your finger about an inch back from the front of your face and just trace down
until you reach the top of your ear and then just twist and clip this out of the
way for now now time to braid so grab a one-inch section right at the top of
your part and I’m just going to sneak in my extensions to help make this braid
nice and thick from the top to the bottom and I’m just joining them into
that top section now divide this section into three very equal pieces that we can
begin our braid starting with the right strand you
want to do one full pass of a three strand braid going underneath the middle
and this just helps to create the foundation now time to Dutch this time
when you bring the right side underneath the middle you want to grab a go to
half-inch size section and join it in once it’s joined in bring that
underneath the middle and then repeat the same step with that left strand grab
about a half inch size piece of hair and join it in and then bring it underneath
the middle keep Dutch braiding down the remainder of this section and the trick
to this braid is to keep it nice and tight also grab smaller sections than
you think you should you want this braid to be detailed so the smaller sections
will help you achieve that once you reach about the temple height you want
to begin directing your braid towards the middle of your head to help give it
that pretty curved appearance and I remember trying to keep it as tight as
possible once you’ve reached your neck could go ahead and stop and then secure
your braid with a clear hair elastic now to make the braid pop even more you’ll
want to pancake it but not too much so just use your index finger and thumb to
tug on the outside of each section to help it appear thicker the step is great
especially if you didn’t use hair extensions because it just helps to give
your braid that nice full appearance now an easy part
secure your hair into a low side ponytail leaving out that front section
for now and you want your ponytail to be sitting directly underneath your
braid then anchor your ponytail with one hand and pull up in small sections
around the crown of your head this will help to create that effortless
appearance while giving us more volume without having to tease our hair and
lately I’ve been using this medium hold hairspray from Kerastase and I find
adding hairspray really helps to give the hairstyle that texture
appearance while holding those lifted pieces into place plus this hairspray
smells so good you can see here the difference that this step makes now time
to create the bun have fun with this let’s put together the better so I like
to wrap my hair counterclockwise completely around my ponytail keeping
everything nice and loose and once I’ve wrapped around in a full circle I like
to kind of wrap it underneath itself and then tuck my ends through the center for
this hairstyle I left my ends poking out at the bottom I thought I just gave it a
more lived-in appearance next bobby pin your bun into place I like to secure the
outside of my bun first and then I like to go in and bobby pin any of those
loose pieces kind of wherever I think looks best I think creating different
directions in your bun and having it be less perfect helps to create that
effortless appearance that the inspiration hairstyle had so just have
some fun with it and keep pinning it until you’re happy with it now those
front pieces move them over your ear and you just want to pin them right where
your braid meets your bun and then tuck your ends underneath your bun and pin
them out of the way and then you just want to lock it all in with one last
spray of hairspray there have you guys that is how to achieve this effortless
braided bun you guys I am so in love with how this hairstyle turned out I
can’t get over it look at it I think it looks so nice it’s definitely going to
be my new go-to and I want to get my hair like up and off of my shoulders I
wish I had somewhere to go right now I just have plans to go play some tennis
in like 20 minutes I guess I could leave it in and I’ll just look super extra on
the tennis court also stay tuned to my channel on the next couple of months
because I will be reintroducing some really great lifestyle makeup fashion

exciting Content comment down below if there’s anything in particular that you

  1. Love love love this video!!! It is SO GORGEOUS, will certainly try it! Could I ask, could you make a video explaining how to do your bangs or how to ask for them to a hair dresser, and of course how to style them? I love your bangs, I want to explain your bangs to my hair dresser because I want your kind of bangs but Im not sure how! Thank you!

  2. I love all the hairstyles you do!! My sister is getting married in December and she wants me to do the bridesmaids hair. The pressure is on. Do you have any ideas for wedding hair? Braid, buns, anything at all will be a huge help! Thank you for making me better at hair!

  3. This is what my daughter wants for her wedding! Thanks. I will try it and bombard you with questions if I can't get it right.

  4. I don't know how you make it seem so effortless but to me it is like a workout 😄😆😁😂

  5. That is really hard to do with my hair, bobby pins refuse to stay in my hair as well as hair ties 😥, but it is in now and I hope it doesnt fall out because it is really cute.

  6. I have very very long hair that's thin, it reaches all the way down to my butt crack and watching your hair tutorials are AMAZING but…can u possible show how to do beautiful braids with very very long hair

  7. All these women who do the "easy & effortless" bun/hair tutorials are RIDICULOUSLY incorrect. My hair will not effortlessly do anything. I've tried these videos so many times and none of them work out.

  8. Girl your hair is way too preety but i don't have such hair and always don't have spray to set up the hair especially when in it pure black the hairstyle doesn't look so well anyway you look gorgeous

  9. hola😘😘😘😘chica linda👸me encanta fascina mi peina trenzas bonita.😚💅👄👡👠👜👚👗🎀👩💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖👏👏👏👏👏👏👏yo vivo país costa rica pura vida😙😙😙😙
