  • elastic hair bands
  • hair spray
  • bobby pins


  • Begin by sectioning hair from the ear forward on both sides, leaving small face-framing sections for the braids.
  • Pull the rest of the hair into low pony close to nape of neck , pinch and pull to tease the top of the hair, for a messier undone look.
  • Add another elastic a couple of inches down from the first one, tease the hair on the bottom out of the elastic, tuck it in and roll up to give more fullness in bun. Bobby pin the bun on the sides - the messier the better for that effortless look.
  • Using a classic three strand Dutch braid (where the hairs go under instead of over), braid remaining side pieces of hair, then pinch and pull at braids to make them fuller and messier.
  • Wrap braids across the top of the bun to the opposite side and bobby pin underneath bun. Lightly spray with hair spray to hold.
