Triple Braided Bun With Flower Crown

Barefoot BlondeBarefoot Blonde Well I am just sitting here at the hospital waiting and waiting for baby – who knew this was such a long process?! Anyway, figured I would schedule this post while I am bored sitting here (already been 8 hours!) so by the time you guys see this I will be a new mama!!! Can’t wait – it feels like Christmas right now!! :) :)

So about this post though, I had a flower crown for my wedding and love the feminine feel of a flower crown! Now I feel like so many people do flower crowns (still so cute though!) but wanted to come up with a new idea for brides looking for something a little more unique and fresh and loved the idea of putting a flower crown around a bohemian braided bun! Since there aren’t many mini flower crowns that are the right size for a bun you may need to make one, I made my flower crown with just some flowers, wire, and floral tape and it was such a sinch and cost around $9.

Here are the step by steps for the braided bun:

1. Pull hair into three ponytails in the back of your head.

2. Braid the ponytails and make sure they are pulled apart to help create a thicker bun. (you can also use a mousse to help!)

3. Wrap each braided ponytail in an oval, pinning as you go along to secure it in place. You can be creative with how you pin these braids, totally up to preference. Just make sure you end up with a bun! And then you can wrap your flower crown around that bun.

5. Finish with TRESemmé TRES Two Climate Control Protection Spray for extra hold during the day. And if you need to smooth some pieces in front for a more polished look, I love to use a bit of the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Crème Serum to smooth the front pieces.

Hope you guys are having a good week and stay tuned for baby updates!!! :) xoxo

    Love this! Unfortunately, I don’t think I can pull it off since my hair 1) is medium length and 2) very fine. Can you do this look with extensions? Doesn’t seem possible, but you are the hair guru, so maybe you have some tips?! Gorgeous as always, and congrats on your little bundle of joy!

    Love the hair.. as always, it is perfect. I wish you would do a video on this tutorial. I can’t understand what to do after you start wrapping the braids around. There are a few other picture tutorials you have done that I can’t understand either. I have to watch someone do it to fully understand it. I hope you make a video soon!
