After I did that lovely Bamboo Braid, I felt compelled to grab my favorite hair-comb, Maza by Nikki Jacoby (Available in the HTHG boutique!) an bun her up. This took the hairstyle to a new level from casual pretty to high-end fancy lady gorgeousness. I think this would be an absolutely perfect bridal hairstyle for a simple, natural bride. I see a cream-colored sheath dress with a bold neckline in a japanese garden.
As usual with braids, start by prepping the hair with Masterbraider braid and wave spray. This will add lots of grip to your braid and help the bamboo ends stay put all day long.
Begin by doing a Bamboo Braid.
Begin gently wrapping the braid into a bun, slightly to one side.
Try and situate the braid so that as you wrap it, it lays flat against the head. This will show more detail in the bun.
Continue wrapping, and tuck in the end of the braid. Use your hair comb, or some large bobby pins, to secure the bun into place.
Tuck in any loose pieces and pin with additional bobbies if needed. Don’t be afraid to really get in there with the bobby pins, this bun can be a bit heavy!
