We showed you how to create the classic baby bun hairstyle. But now, it’s time to up the ante with a new challenge: braided baby buns. In this tutorial, we break down the step-by-step process so you can create the look at home.
Step 1: Part Hair & Create the Left Side Braid
Part your hair down the middle, creating two (temporary) low pigtails.
Flip your head upside down, remove the left pigtail and create a French braid, starting with the base of your head and advancing towards your crown.
After you’ve braided the entire left section—from root to tip—secure the braid with clear elastic bands at the crown and at the ends.
Step 2: Create the Right Side Braid
Repeat the directions from Step 1 above to create the second braid on your right side.
Step 3: Twist the Left Side Braid into a Bun
Take the left side braid and twist it around the elastic band at the crown to create a bun. Use bobby pins along the way to ensure the bun is secure.
