Twisted Maiden Braid Bun // Hair Tutorial

Today's hair tutorial is taking the beautiful maiden braid style to a whole new level. Take a look:


Supplies: small elastic hair bands, hair pins. 

1// Begin with your hair down and parted down the middle into two sections.

2// Braid each side into french braid pigtails. I braided mine into a reverse braid so that it would pop out more. To do this, when braiding simply move each strand under instead of over. To create a crown look, braid it on the side of your head instead of directly back.

3// Repeat this step on the other side.

4// Once you're finished, move the braids behind you. You might double check in a mirror to make sure they are even. 

5// Next, take the braids and cross them over to the other side.

6// Repeat step five by bringing the braid back over, twisting them together in the middle, creating a twisted bun.

7// Lastly, pin the ends of the braids towards the top of your crown, tucking the ends underneath the start of the braid. 

8// Continue pinning the bun and braids in place until it feels secure on your head. 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
