How To Do A Braided Bun
Some Useful Tips:

Usually, each braided bun is defined by the type of braid you use, so make sure you choose the right braid to combine with a bun.
Most types of braids can be easily turned into a bun by simply twisting the hair at the end, and secure it using accessories like hairpins, hairclips or hairbands.
It is always a good idea to tie your hair with an elastic band to help your bun last longer, and also to make the process easier. You can do this before you start braiding (by grabbing your hair into a ponytail) or after you finished braiding, just before you start to twist your hair into a bun.
Braided Bun Tutorial
The easiest braided bun can be done in three simple steps, and it starts with a simple braid ponytail.
Follow these simple steps:
Step 1. Grab your hair into a ponytail, after you’ve carefully brushed it. Tie it with an elastic to secure. Depending on your desired look you can do a normal or a side ponytail, and you can also choose the desired position for your bun: upper or lower.
Step 2. Divide the ponytail obtained in three equal parts. Start to braid by passing each hairpiece one over the other. Use a thin elastic band to tie when you finished.
Step 3. Twist the braided ponytail into a braid, starting at the base of it. There are two ways to secure it:
- As you go, each time you have rolled a part of it, use a couple of hairpins to secure the bun to your head.
- Or, when you finished twisting your hair onto a bun, use a hairband to tie the bun.
