Accent Braid into Messy Bun | St Patrick's Day Hairstyles

This is a very simple hairdo that takes literally five minutes to do.  For St. Patrick’s Day I used a green ribbon in the braid, but you could use any color of ribbon for any occasion.   I show that there are a few ways to finish the style, one being into a soft side ponytail and the other is into a cute messy bun.

Items Needed: Spray Bottle, rat-tail comb, ribbon (any color), small elastic band, hair band, hairspray (if needed)

Time Requirement: 5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

This hairdo is also subtle enough to be used on tweens, teens, and moms.  Please view the video below for the tutorial.  Enjoy!
