My bathroom is finally back to normal (yay), and so I was able to film that, cute, butterfly braid bun tutorial for you guys. However, as you’ll see from the hair tutorial video, the “self-tutorial” didn’t “quite” come out the way I wanted.
Scroll down to the bottom to see the, step-by-step, butterfly braided bun tutorial video.
Updo styles are best for medium or long hair lengths.
This braided hairstyle, although still very elegant and more wearable than the blonde-doll version, came out looking more like a hair bow updo. Apparently, my hair is just too dang thick and long to do “delicate” braids that looks like wings on my own hair.
I won’t lie, if you’re thinking about doing this complicated, braided hairstyle on your own hair, your arms are gonna hurt!
To tame flyaways, apply matte hair wax before braiding your hair. I used the TIGI matte wax for men. I LOVE this wax for hair braiding, but it’s going to smell like a dude’s hair product, which I don’t mind at all. It’s does what it says, a “workable” wax. :)
Whatever you do, don’t wet the hair, then apply gel thinking it will work with this hairstyle. Even for little girl’s hair.

If the steps confuse you, please refer to my original tutorial down below (part 1~2).
Since the blonde doll version came out too long, I split them.
