How to Create a French Braided Loop Bun

1.Use a comb to separate a section of hair, from the part down to the left ear. Clip off the front portion with a duck-bill clip.

2.Place a stretchy headband over the center of the head, sliding the back portion down the back of the head at the nape of the neck. If the headband comes loose or pops off, pin it down with some bobby pins, sliding them over the band and downwards towards the neck.

3.Let down the front portion of hair and create a French braid by picking up a 1″ section near the hairline and dividing it into three equal sections. Cross the left-side section over the middle section then the right-side section over the middle section. Pick up a section of hair, adding it into the left-side section and cross it over the middle section. Now pick up a section of hair, adding it into the right-side section and cross it over the middle section. Continue braiding, incorporating hair into the braid until it reaches the left ear. Then continue braiding this section down into a regular braid and tie off the end with a dear elastic band.

4.Wrap the braid around the headband, pulling it back down towards the neck.

5.Pick up a section of hair, directly underneath the braid, and wrap it around the headband as well, following along the braid.

6.Take a section of hair on the right side, near the face, and wrap it around the headband.

7.Pick up a section of hair, at the back of the head directly under the headband, and wrap it around the headband, tucking in the ends. Spray the roll with hairspray and smooth down any stray hairs.

8.Pick up the remaining hair and twist it together.

9.Wrap the twist clockwise into a bun and pin it down with bobby pins. Hide the pins under the bun by sliding them towards the center. Then set the style with hairspray while smoothing a hand over the bun to smooth any stray hairs.
