Tutorial 2: Double Braid Bun Twist
When it comes to bun hairstyles, we love that trends like space buns are back. However, many haven’t jumped back on the space bun trend because they feel the look reads a little childish. What if we told you that there’s a way to wear this hairstyle without looking like a kid? We found a stylish way to sport this throwback hairstyle with a mature twist: the double braid bun twist.
For our Style Setters Street Style series, we’re taking a look at how blogger Louis Roe sported the look during NYFW. Her overall look was a style statement that any adult can try. This double braid bun tutorial, as demonstrated on Roe, is a great way to double the fun with space bun hairstyles in an elegant and stylish way. Read on to learn how you can recreate this trendy street style look at home.
Step 1: Blow-dry and prep.
This double braid bun hairstyle can be created on freshly washed hair, or you can opt for styling your second- or third-day hair into this look. If you’re beginning on freshly washed hair, apply TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Firm Control Gel to damp hair and blow-dry. For second- or third-day hair, opt for using a dry shampoo like TRESemmé Fresh Start Basic Dry Shampoo to refresh hair before styling.
Pro tip: Use a flat boar-bristled brush to help spread product through. This tip is ideal for those who want to create a smooth, neat and sleek finish.
Step 2: Create pigtail ponytails.
Use your hands to create a barely-there hair part, then gather each side into a low ponytail secure with a hair elastic.
Step 3: Create your braids.
Braid the lengths of each ponytail all the way down to the ends, roll them into a bun and fasten with bobby pins. Set your style with TRESemmé TRES Two Freeze Hold Hairspray to finish your double bun twist with a strong hold.
Step 4: Final look.
Strut your updo on the streets in a fashionable ensemble, or wear it to a special event!
