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
- Part hair in the middle.
- 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.)
- Section off the last fourth of hair from step 1.
- 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.)
- Secure Braid with a small ponytail holder.
- Repeat steps 5&6 on the remaining three fourths.
- Repeat steps 2-6 on the left side of head.
- Gather all the hair that is not braided into a ponytail but DO NOT secure.
- Add all braids and ponytail all the hair including the braids. Make sure the braid lay flat against the head.
- 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.
- 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.
- Turn the ponytail into one big braid and bun normally.
- Leave it as a ponytail.
- Braid the rest of the ponytail in little braids and bun it as above.
- Or braid it and leave as a ponytail.
