Dutch Braided Side Messy Bun {For SHORT hair!}

Hello Everyone!

Today I am going to show you how to do one of my favorite hairstyles. This one is great if your hair can be a little unruly and wild, like mine, and you just need a quick and simple hairstyle to make it look nice and put together.

This works great on short hair, however like always, it also works on long hair too. (:

Let’s get started!

********************

Items needed: 2 small hair elastics, 1 hair tie, 5-6 bobby pins as needed // Difficulty: easy-medium // time needed: 5-7 minutes.

********************

1.) Start with your hair parted in a side part. (A middle part works too, so just part your hair where you like it.)

2.) Started on the side where your side bun will be, begin to dutch braid straight back. One you start to reach the end of the crown of your head, finish the braid without adding in any more strands and secure with an elastic. (I like to leave some hair strands down in the front to frame my face)

3.) Now do a dutch braid in the same way on the other side, except instead of going straight back try to curve it slightly around your head. Once you reach the end of the crown of your head, continue braiding down without adding any more strands and secure with your second elastic. Then go back and pancake both braids.

4.) Now gather all your hair to one side for your side messy bun. I did mine on my left side. Now do a messy bun. I feel like everyone does their messy bun differently, but this is the way I do mine. I start to wrap it around like I’m doing a ponytail, but twist your elastic when your hair is about halfway through, then wrap it over. So it almost looks like a pull through ponytail. I hope that makes sense, and here’s some pictures of the steps, which should help a bit.

5.) Now grab random strands from your pull-through messy bun and bobby pin them down so you’re messy bun looks more messy and full.

And that’s it!

Boho Rosette Bun Half-up Style

Hello Everyone and happy March!

I have a really cute hairstyle to show you all which works on both short and long hair. This hairstyle is inspired by a request made by ‘Mia Tinuviel’ to do a tutorial on the rosette bun. Thank you so much for requesting this tutorial!

************************

Items needed: 3 small hair elastics (preferably ones that match your hair color), 10-15 bobby pins as needed // Difficulty: Medium // Time: 10-15 minutes

************************

1.) Part your hair in the middle (you can part it to the side too if you would like but I think that middle parts look more boho). You want the part line to end just a few inches away from your hairline because you are going to gather the back.

2.) Gather the back part of your hair just like you would do for a regular half up, then divide that into three sections and secure two of them with elastics to keep them out of the way.

3.) With the one loose section you have, do a regular three strand braid.

4.) Now pancake the braid, however only pull one side of the braid. (it is easier to make the pancaking on one side more dramatic if you have longer hair, but it will still work with short hair.)

5.) Repeat steps 3-4 with the other two strands.

6.) Using one of your braids, coil it in the opposite direction of the pancaked side. Since I pulled the left side, I coiled it to the right. Secure each bun with bobby pins.

I used clear elastics because I didn’t have black ones, but if you have ones that match your hair, they will be more disguised.

So that is how you do a rosette bun! You can do this as a half up with only one bun, or gather all your hair and do one rosette bun, or you can even do double rosette buns. ^_^

But to finish this style….

7.) Gather a piece from the front, loosely twist it, and bobby pin it back. Repeat on the other side.

And there you have my boho rosette bun half-up style!
