This timeless low bun exudes quiet luxury. To create this hairstyle, start by sectioning off hair from each side of your face and securing it with clips. Gather the remaining hair into a low ponytail and tease it gently for added volume. Next, roll the ponytail inward to form a bun and secure it with bobby pins.

Now, release the clipped sections of hair from each side of your face, twist them towards the back, and wrap them around the base of your bun.

2. Low Ponytail With Tendrils

Create a whimsical bridal look with a waterfall braid. Begin by making soft waves with a curling iron. Then, take a small section of hair from one side. Braid it from your hairline toward the back of your head, leaving strands dangling and adding new ones to the braid as you go along to create a waterfall effect.

Continue braiding until you reach the other side of your head and finish with a regular three-strand braid. Secure the ends with an elastic and spritz hairspray for a neat finish.

5. Headband Braid
