Easy Braided Bun Tutorial

This Braided Bun Can Be Yours in 5 Easy Steps

Feel yourself quickly falling into a hair rut this Fall? Don't beat yourself up . . . get yourself motivated! We've got this whimsical and beautiful braided bun tutorial, straight from Mario Russo of Salon Mario Russo in Boston, and it's perfect for the holidays.

1. Blow-dry your wet hair until it's completely smooth using a boar-bristle brush and a few spritzes of Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray ($28) for added volume.

2. Give yourself a slight side part, and then start your french braid. It should start on the side with less hair and continue around your head until you reach the point right below your ear on the other side. Tie the end off with a clear elastic.

3. Grab the section of your hair that hasn't been braided, and use a curling iron to curl it away from your face. The curls should be loose and wavy, so tug on the ends if they're looking a little tight. A spritz of Oribe Texturizing Spray ($39) will help roughen up your hair for a textured finish.

4. Twist in the curled side of your hair with the loose end of your braid, and pin it in place. Coil the sections together into a loose bun, and secure with bobby pins.

5. Finish with a healthy dose of MoroccanOil Luminous Hairspray ($24). The finished look is a more whimsical take on a sideswept chignon.
