How to Do an Upside-Down Braid Into a Bun {hair tutorial}

How to Do an Upside-Down Braid into a Bun is my absolute favorite Up-Do style for the summer.  My thirteen year old daughter started doing this style on herself this spring and then tried it on me this week and I’m hooked.  If you know how to french braid, you’ll be able to do this style with ease, if not, here’s a video tutorial (you just have to do it upside down).  It just takes 3 steps and you have a gorgeous up-do that’s not fussy and lasts all day.

How to Do an Upside-Down Braid Into a Bun

Step 1: Flip your hair over and brush out all your hair. French braid your hair while it is still flipped over so that it is “upside down” Once you braid to the height you want your bun at, secure with a small elastic.

Step 2: Gather all of your hair and secure with a bigger elastic right over the small one. You can flip your hair back to normal now.

Step 3: Now just make a bun from the hair you just put into a pony tail and secure with an elastic or bobby pins. (I use both)

Step 4: Make sure it looks right, then spray with hairspray and enjoy your upside-down braided bun. 🙂
