Hair 101: Braided Bun

Nicole Richie
Summer is a time to get your hair out of your face, try out new hairstyles, and transform your hair to being healthier.Nicole Richie always sports the cutest hairdos and I am especially loving this braided style that goes back into a sidebun. It so easy to recreate especially on a bad hair and all you need are bobby pins, a comb or brush, and a ponytail holder.
  1. Begin by detangling your hair and  all to one side.
  2. Make a thick french braid on the side of your head close to your edges going to the ends of your hair. Be sure to braid loosely.
  3. Take your hair and swirl it into a loose, messy bun at the back of your head. Secure with bobby pins.
  4. Create a more messy look by playing with the bun and the braid. A carefree look is perfect for summer.
French Braiding Quick Tips
The best way to french braid is to take three medium sized peices of hair and cross them over each other in equal amounts of time. Add in an extra piece of hair to the original three sections to make the braid into a french braid.

Remember practice makes perfect and to be patient when trying new hairstyles. Rock this look for a carefree and fun vibe, even on the worst hair day!
