braids of glory: the double braid.

July 16, 2012

Today I’m excited to share with you part two of the braids of glory series, which includes the double braid and a variation of the double braid with a bun. They are ideal for hot summer days and bad hair days alike, as they keep all of your hair pulled back and in check. Both options begin with braided bangs, so make sure to refresh your memory with the first video in the series if you’re not sure how to do that.

For those of you eager to try the bun variation, all you have to do it turn the bottom braid into a bun for a chic, pulled-back style. Here’s what the end result looks like and three quick steps on how to do it:

  1. Do the double braid as shown in the video.
  2. Twist your braid toward the back of your head, and loop it around until it forms a cinnamon-roll sort of bun.
  3. Grab some bobby pins and secure around the bun to hold it in place.

P.S. Catch up on the rest of the series here, or by clicking on “braids of glory” under the posts by series section in the sidebar.
