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.

You can even wear it as a simple half-up, half-down, twisted, headband hairstyle.

All you need is a snug headband of your choice, and a few bobby pins.  The products I list below will help you achieve this look, but it’s not necessary to use.


SexyHair Play Dirty   (dry wax in spray form).  

 Use this on your ends only for this hairstyle.  This product creates piecy texture in your hair, while smoothing down unwanted fly-aways. 

  Don’t spray too much, use sparingly.

This spray has no hold whatsoever, however, it settles down flyaways. 

Super SOFT, no hold, hold.. know what I mean?

You guys always ask so here is the  Nail polish I’m wearing… lol

Cute Messy Bun | Quick Everyday Updo Hairstyles | Hair Tutorial Videos

Hair tutorial : big, messy bun with braids video | everyday hairstyles & updos for medium long hair

This week’s hair tutorial video, by popular request, is an everyday, braided, big messy bun hairstyles for medium or long hair.  If your hair is short, you will need to incorporate a sock or a donut to make the bun.

I had some trouble showing my braids on top of my hair in this video, as you’ll shortly see, due to how sparse my hair is on the crown.  My hair started thinning out in my early 20s, and I, well, blame my mother…It runs in the family.  Anyhoo, so this is the reasons why I don’t do many, “braided” bangs hairstyles tutorials, although I truly do find them cute and easy to do.
To make this voluminous, braided messy bun, basically, after doing the correct sectioning in the beginning, simply half-Dutch braid – also known as the inside-out French braid, or a lace braid –  all the hair left out of the section, before incorporating the braid with the ponytail to make the messy bun.
Watch how I did it below
