An excellent look when you want to look like you put a bit more effort into your bun that most days (you know, to fool people into thinking you totally didn’t wake up late or anything), the upside down braided bun is easy, simple and can be done in less than five minutes. The best thing about this braid? Shorter-haired girls can rock it, too. (Note: I used the fishtail method for my braid, but I am sure it would work with your standard three – its all experimentation.)
1. Divide your hair in two, pinning the top to give you room for your braid.
2. Next, start your braid as you normally would by sectioning out two pieces. Tip: lower your head forward to allow a semi-flat surface to construct your braid.
3, 4, & 5. Continue braiding until you have braided up the entire section and secure with bobby pins; you will remove them later so it doesn’t matter if they show at this point.
6. Now, gather your top section into your desired bun, either a perfect ballerina bun or a messy bun and secure them with more bobby pins–this time hiding them efficiently.
7. Fix up any flyways and you’re done!
