I love finding simple hair styles that look intricate and complicated. The “Triple Braid Bun” is a perfect example that looks can be very deceiving! This style combines two super simple techniques and leaves you with a pretty fancy result. Check out the steps below to master this cute ‘do’!
Step 1 - Start with brushed, tangle free hair and divide your hair into three even horizontal sections. (One at the top, one in the middle, and one at the bottom.)
Step 2 - Take your elastics and make 3 sections into evenly sized ponytails.
Step 3 – Starting with the first pony tail, make a simple 3 strand braid and secure the bottom with another elastic.
Step 4 - Take your braid and wrap it in a circular motion around the base of your first ponytail into the shape of a bun. Then, secure it in place with one or two bobby pins (be sure it’s nice and secure!).
Steps 5 & 6 - Take your second ponytail and follow steps 3 and 4. Once you’ve braided and wrapped your ponytail into a bun, secure it with bobby pins.
Step 7 - Complete the above steps on your third section to complete this look.
And there you have it! This hairstyle is not only simple to do, but it’s also quick, making it the perfect go-to when you’re running late! Once you’re finished, spritz the finished product with a layer of hairspray, and you’re stylishly out the door!
