Start with dry hair. Divide your hair in half across the back of your head from ear to ear and gather the hair together. Secure with a hair elastic.
Divide the hair in the band into three even sections.
Make a simple three-strand braid until you get to the ends and secure it with a hair elastic.
Pull on the right side of the braid gently to create a “pancake” braiding effect. This will plump up the side of the braid that will form the outside of the flower bun.
Create a bun, with the side of the braid that you pancaked on the outer side, and secure in place with bobby pins. Use a medium-hold hairspray to finish.
