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.  This 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!
