The braided side-bun is an easy hair-do that can be glammed up with a fancy hair clip, and still looks good at the end of the day when it’s all falling out.
Braiding around the back of the head might take a couple of goes to get the hang of, but the best tip I have is: when you’re swapping over from braiding with from lthe right side to braiding from the left (or vice versa) just try to remember if the last move you did was top to middle or bottom to middle (I hope that makes sense!).
P.S. I just bought a pack of those swirly bobby pins from Priceline, and they are rocking my world. I have super slippery hair, and normally I’d need a good handful of regular bobby pins to keep this up-do in place. I can do it with one carefully placed “spin pin”, and it won’t budge all day.
