Hair Bun with Micro-Braid Accents | Updo Hairstyles

As the second video of my collaboration with EveliniCutza on YouTube, we wanted to share with you the style we did on her channel!

Hair Bun with Micro-Braid Accents | Updo Hairstyles

It is a bun hairstyle, and one that you are likely very familiar with from Pinterest and Tumblr!

{My girls call this the “Pumpkin Bun” since it looks so much like a pumpkin and with a very “Fall-ish” feel!} We aren’t sure who created the original hairstyle, but Evelina wanted to show us all her take on how to recreate it. ┬áThis technique incorporates the braids into the bun, instead of on top of it…

You will need a bun maker, which you can pick up at Claire’s or Sally Beauty, but you can also use pipe cleaners as Evelina shows us.


Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1 hair band, 6-10 small elastics, a bun maker, 2-4 bobby pins.

Time Requirement: 5 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Happy Hairdoing!
