Jedi Braid Bun and Variations

Say hello to Sarah, everyone! With December here, I'd like to show y'all an easy hairstyle that works all day. It's a beautiful bun with a story behind it. 

Sarah's dance studio was having a costume day one Friday, and Sarah was going has a Jedi. I had the wonderful privilege of braiding her hair for the event. However, we were pressed for time, and I didn't get to do it quite the way I'd envisioned it. Today I'll get to share some variations.

The Jedi Braid Bun

  1. Part hair in the middle.
  2. Run finger up from behind the right ear up to the part and section off the hair in front of the finger. (Optional: Secure loose hair out of the way.)
  3. Section off the last fourth of hair from step 1.
  4. Divide the the fourth into three equal pieces and braid down the length. (Left piece over middle; right piece over new middle. Repeat till braid is done.)
  5. Secure Braid with a small ponytail holder.
  6. Repeat steps 5&6 on the remaining three fourths.
  7. Repeat steps 2-6 on the left side of head.
  8. Gather all the hair that is not braided into a ponytail but DO NOT secure.
  9. Add all braids  and ponytail all the hair including the braids. Make sure the braid lay flat against the head.
  10. Wrap the braids around the rest of the hair, and twist into a bun by making a slightly twisted loop of hair and pulling the ends thru.
  11. Tighten the loop by pulling on the ends. Then Tuck the ends under and pin in place. Make sure the ponytail holders on the braids are hidden.
  1. Turn the ponytail into one big braid and bun normally.
  2. Leave it as a ponytail.
  3. Braid the rest of the ponytail in little braids and bun it as above.
  4. Or braid it and leave as a ponytail.
Well, there y'all have it. One hairstyle five ways. Hope that meets all your holiday hair needs. As always if you need help, just leave a comment.
