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.
