Braid Combo into Messy Bun | Hairstyle Videos

Here is one of a few hairstyles that we filmed awhile ago, but have not yet posted here. It uses a cornrow on the top with two standard braids on each side. Then you combine the braids on the back of the head, braid them down a bit, and form a messy bun. (On the video tutorial below, I used a low messy bun… but it would look even better if you bring it higher on the head by not braiding down so far.) The best thing about a combo hairstyle, is that you can use any combination of braids to make the style your own!

    I did this braid on my daughter yesterday before we went to her brother’s baseball game. We had SO many comments on how cute it was! And super simple. Thanks so much for this website. I am not creative, and it’s nice to leave that part up to you 🙂 (btw, ADORABALE family!)
