QUICK RUN-DOWN | STEPS

  • Tie your hair in a side ponytail.
  • Split your ponytail in 2 – as if you’re doing a normal fishtail braid.  We’ll name it Section A & Section B. Take a “thin strand” of hair from the outside of the Section  A, and cross it OVER the Section A, but UNDER the Section B (use your thumb to wrap the hair under the Section B).
  • Create an opening where the thin strand passed under the Section B, and insert 2 fingers through it so you can grab the “thin strand” of hair and pull it through.  This will create a knot.
  • Once it’s been knotted, return the “thin strand” back to the original section.  In this case, it should be placed in Section A again.
  • Repeat on the opposite section.
  • Rinse and repeat all the way down and tie it with an elastic band.

Please note, because this braiding method requires “knotting” this will make your hair slightly shorter than a normal fishtail braid.   You’re giving up “some length for thickness.

Your choice; long, thin as pancakes but cute, fishtail braids, or slightly shorter, but lush and full fishtail braids.

This low bun hairstyle is part 2 of my headband hairstyles hair tutorial video series.

 

In this second headband hairstyle tutorial,  I go over how to make the low bun hairstyle in 2 different ways:

  1.  for people with very thick, and long hair
  2.  for people with normal, medium hair (few inches past the shoulders).

 

You should try it both ways because it creates 2 completely different hair bun looks.
