Hair 101: French Braid To Bun

The bun hairstyle is so popular now, but there is a time when it needs a little spin! The french braid up to a bun is so beautiful and can actually begin from the side, front, or wherever your heart desires. This hairstyle may look better if you have someone else french braid the hair and if you use the "sock bun" method for the bun.

  1. Begin with your hair detangled and a part seperating 1/4 of the back of your hair from the front.
  2. Tie the front of your hair away and begin french braiding the back. Secure the braid with 2-3 bobby pins.
  3. Bring back the front of your hair as well as the back and pull it into a ponytail.
  4. Create the bun by wrapping your hair in a circle or use the "sock bun" method.
  • If you don't know how to french braid or just don't have the time instead of french braiding, just braid a big sectionn of hair and clip it into the bun.
Wear this look to give a new element to your a bun. A lovely pair of studs or even big, dangly earrings go perfectly with this hairstyle. You can even go more dramatic with your make-up and add special clips in your hair.


  1. Since I saw this hairdo I want it so badly but I can´t do it with my own hair :/

    1. You could always try a fake bun that matches your hair color and see if you can achieve the look that way?

  2. My hair is thick, shortish and curly and I can actually do this! Haha I love this hairstyle :)
