Half up Bun with Braids

The half up bun look is really popular at the moment and even though I have posted this look before, I decided to add one of my favourite elements to it: Braids! Here is my Half up bun with braids look.

Before I share with you on how you can create this gorgeous style, I would like to introduce my new hair colour to you guys! I have been wanting to go completely blonde for a few years now and last week I finally did. Once again the lovely Courtney from {Esteem Hair} has done a spectacular job and I am so happy with how my hair came out. Here is a before and after photo to show you the drastic change!

New Hair Colour

Now back to this weeks look. I really love this half up look so much and it’s my go to style for when I’m in a hurry or too lazy to straighten all of my hair. Instead of just creating a bun at the top I wanted to add something to it so I decided on two small braids on the sides. This really creates a different effect and takes it from plain to a little bit more fun!

Step 1 – I prefer to create this look with straight hair as I love the sleek look of it. Once my hair is straight I decide where I want to place the braids for the top of my hair.
Step 2 – I then create two thin braids on the sides of my hair and tie them off with an elastic at the ends.
Step 3 – Once I’m done creating the braids, I tie my hair up at the top and leave it in a ponytail. Remove the elastics from the braids and then twist your hair into a bun.
