Braids and Bun on imgfave

So, my mom used to do the first four steps on our hair when we were little girls. I think I can go all the way and actually replicate this one...

One of those wonderful “oh, yeah, I just threw this together” buns.

So I only have 3 hairstyles: bun, ponytail, or (when I have an hour to kill) straight as possible. I actually tried this today and I now have faith that I can do other things with my hair! I did it in a hurry because of the kids but it still came out decent. Love!

Make two dutch braids with hair. Fatten out the two braids by pulling apart the outer edges. Line up the two braids so they begin to look like one big fat braid. It's important to make sure the middle section of the mermaid tail lines up--don't worry if the ends of your braids (the hair that is sticking out underneath the elastic) are uneven. Pin the center of the two braided sections together. Start with the pin facing horizontally, then as you push it into the hair, you direct it vertically

I have extremely unruly hair so I appreciate a hairstyle that takes very little effort but still looks pulled together. Here are the simple steps I took to achieve this style: 1. Part your hair down the middle 2. Make two pigtail braids and secure with an elastic 3.Take one pigtail and bring to the oposite side, use a bobby pin to secure. 4. Do the same on the other side, I used four bobby pins to hold the braids in place 5. Tuck in the ends so they don’t show. You're finished!

Love this blog, full of ideas for medium length hair!!
