Easy Braid Wrapped Bun

More Homestead Hair High Fashion! Who says you have to be boring “pony tail mom” everyday? Dress up your ponytail or bun with this cute braided twist to an all too common up-do. This one is much like the Braided Headband, and you can even combine these two and have a pretty cool looking up-do! Here is how you get started!

1. Grab a section of hair (It can be as big as you want really, as long as you can wrap it around the bun. The bigger the more noticeable. I like this size, but sometimes I like bigger sections) and braid it down. Secure with a small elastic. Try to grab the hair that is more directly behind the bottom of your ear close to your neck. This helps keep the start of the braid discreet.

 

2. Braid Each Side and Use Small Elastic to Secure

3. Twist your pony tail and then wrap into a bun. Secure with a Big Elastic Over the whole thing. Or leave as a ponytail Messy is fine b/c we are not posers! We actually work hard 🙂
4. Wrap one braid at a time whichever direction you are comfortable with around the bun. You can secure with bobby pins in the bun or I used a small elastic and just plopped it over the whole thing when I was done. When you wrap the first piece, you can use the second piece to secure the first one by starting off tightly criss crossing it.

 

5. From the Top! Looks like your bun/ponytail is held together with your own hair. So Pretty!

Easy Ponytail With Headband Braid

Grab a section of hair from the top of your ear to behind it and braid down. Secure with a small elastic. Do the same for the other side. Pull rest of hair back into a bun or pony tail and secure with elastic. Take one piece of braided hair and pull over top of head, secure with a bobby pin on other side. Do the same for the other braid, keeping it behind the first one you did. This makes it look wide and as if it were one piece. Voila! Homestead High Fashion :)

Don’t mind the roots! This is a simple hair style anyone can do with medium to long hair. of course a plain old boring pony tail will work on a homestead, why get pretty just to get gross? Well, even though I hang out with chickens and clean poop most days, I like to look as nice as can I can be! Doing this simple twist on a ponytail or bun is sure to give you a cute style that makes you feel good even when you are a chicken/turkey queen:D.

You can add bobby pins where you need them..I added one more b/c my braid on one side was not tight enough at the base and it popped out a bit. I just flattened it with the pin and it acts as an extra security measure.

Voila! Homestead High Fashion 🙂

I wore this today when doing my chores outside and inside and it was so nice to not have flyaways in my face! I never want to touch my hair when I am doing chores outside b/c who knows what I have on them! 🙂
