Double Braided Bun for Back to School

What I like about this Braided Bun hairstyle is that the buns keep your hair out of your face, which really makes them a perfect hairstyle for school. You can even keep some of the hair accessories for styling your DIY Braided Bun Hairstyle at your desk or in your locker at school. That way you can easily make a perfect hairstyle when right before your first zoom class or for P.E. No need to wake up early just to fix your hair. This hairstyle is very easy and very fashionable at the same time, so get into your hairstyling spirit and let’s get started!

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 2 ponytail holders, 2 small hair elastics, 8-10 small bobby pins, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 3-5 minutes

No-Heat Plopping Curls

These are called Plopping Curls {or Plunking Curls}, obviously because you plop your hair into a t-shirt, and then tie them up. I use a little product to help define the curls as they dry, so be sure to watch the video to get the full process. What I love about no-heat curl tutorials is that you are using absolutely zero heat in creating them. For this tutorial, it is a t-shirt creating the curls. Be sure to start with your hair slightly more than damp, not “dripping” wet. If the hair is too wet, your curls will not turn out. As a reference point, be sure to notice how wet my hair is when I begin the plopping.

Items Needed: Damp hair, curl defining mousse, 1 t-shirt, dry shampoo if desired.

Time Requirement: 2 minutes plopping & styling {not including overnight drying}

Skill Level: Easy
