Today, Brooklyn agreed to teach us how to create her new “go-to” hairstyle.  She says this is her favorite she has ever done! It’s quick (which is why Brooklyn loves it) and cute making mornings a bit easier.  We’ve shown you several bun hairstyles over the years. Messy buns and twisty buns galore, but Brooklyn taught me a new hack/twist that makes this hairstyle super simple. You will LOVE it!

Brooklyn started with soft wand curls, but you can use this hairstyle with just about any base. It is perfect for medium or long hair! To see your own photo recreations of this style featured in our app, feel free to tag your photos on IG with: #CGHDoubleBunHalfUp

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, hair elastics, 6-10 bobby pins, dry shampoo, and hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 3-5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Step-By-Step Instructions:

  1. Brooklyn started by adding wand curls to her hair.  But you can wear it straight or even use second day braid waves.
  2. Part the hair down the center.
  3. On one side of the part, pick up a section of hair from about an inch above the ear and back about the center.
  4. Twist the hair into a bun and secure with bobby pins.  (watch video for Brooklyn’s Hair Hack!)
  5. Repeat steps 3-4 on the other side.
  6. Finish with hairspray {if desired}.
