3 Braided Bun Updo


 I really wish I could say I was one of those gals that loves styling their hair in the Summer. Do they really exist? Because in my house curling irons and blow dryers are basically a dirty four letter word during these scorching hot days.  Anyway if you're looking for a lazy girl hairstyle that looks cute, keeps you cool, and gives you pretty waves, then you must try this 3 braided bun updo. The best part is that it actually works really well with wet hair in case you want to sleep in it or have no time to blow dry air dry your hair.
You need:
3 plastic rubber bands
6-10 bobby pins


1. Grab a third of your hair for the first braided bun. I pulled the hair back leaving no part.
2. Doing a 3 stranded braid, braid the section of hair directly in the back middle. No need to be perfect. Tie off with rubber band.
3. Take the braid and wrap it in a bun.
4. Secure the bun with bobby pins.
5. Grab half the remaining loose hair and braid.
6. Take the second braid and wrap in a bun shape.
7. Secure braid with bobby pins.
8. Take the remaining hair and create the last braid.
9. Wrap braid into a bun and secure with bobby pins.
And DONE!

Pretty hair in under 10 minutes and then you have nice wavy hair the next day. #twofer

  2. What a pretty updo! My hair isn't quite long enough for this, but since I'm slowly but surely growing it out I hope to get there and try it!

  5. What a pretty up do! I would never think to braid different sections like that but I'll have to give it a try! I hate drying my hair in the winter so I've been doing buns recently, as in everyday haha!

  7. Oh, I love this! And seriously, sweating up a storm while blow drying your hair is the worst.
