Tutorial :: Holiday Bun

Happy Holidays! I've put together another quick and easy holiday hair tutorial. I love doing my hair in buns and this is a simple way of changing the classic look. Happy holiday partying!

1. Flip your head over and rake your fingers through your hair to make it all go towards the top of your head, leaving out a bang section.

2. Once all your hair is smoothly going up, tightly gather it in a fist at the top of your head.

3. Secure it with an elastic.

4. Split your pony tail in three sections. If your hair is fine you can lightly backcomb each section to make it bigger.

5. Hold one section up by the ends and then bring it down so it sits on your head. It will naturally fold onto itself.

6. Pin at the folds.

7. Repeat with the other two sections making sure to hide your hair pins and bobby pins.

8. Pin your bangs back so they connect to your bun and everything flows together.

What a great tutorial! I thought this was actually two braided buns together from the first photo - glad it see it's even easier than that. Can't wait to try this tonight!

cute! I love seeing you do one on you. That is what I like seeing, then I believe I can actually do it. (Its more realistic this way...)

I did a variation on this theme for my NYE hairdo, with a low bun behind the ear opposite my normal side-part. And with a beautiful, glitzy barette. It was such an easy hair-do but it looked so pretty!

I got many compliments. Thank you for the inspiration!
