Half-up, half-down flower braided bun tutorial
Tip: Curl your hair outwards for a neat, uniformed style.
Section hair and plait.
If you don’t know how to plait, don’t worry! All you have to do is take the left section of hair and weave it over the middle section (it will become the new middle section). Then, take the right section of hair and weave it over the middle. Keep repeating this process until you have plaited the whole length of hair.
Create your flower bun.
Final look: Finish with hairspray.
