DIY Braided Bun Hairstyle

Hi, loves! We’ve received numerous requests from our dear readers that you want to see more hairstyle diys for your wedding. You asked… we listened! Now we’ll be bringing you plenty of awe-inspiring hair-spiration every week at EB! (P.S. Are you following our Pinterest boards yet? Be sure to follow our hair board!) Today we’re sharing the DIY braided bun. This style is great for medium-to-long tresses and can be worn with or without a veil. I spotted a few Real Wedding examples of a bride rocking the braided bun hairstyle in the images below (with photos by Leslee Mitchell. What do you think of this hairstyle?

DIY Braided Bun Hairstyle

I know how to get the perfect top knot using a sock (or one of these), but wrapping a braid around the bun adds a new level of dimension and texture. And, wouldn’t you know it… the time when I find this braided bun hairstyle is the week AFTER I decide to cut four inches off of my hair (and add bangs. Yes. Bangs. I guess I’m bolder when I’m pregnant!) According to the DIY image below, my hair is still long enough to try, so I’ll try this one soon. If your hair is long enough — and you’re willing! — please do me a favor and try this style. Send me the photos! We’d love to share them in this post.

To give you some inspiration, I found two DIYs to help with your style. The first is very similar to the bride’s style, shown above, but with bangs.
