So … on with the hairstyle for today! After Goose got her hair cut, I was anxious to see what we could “still” do with it since it was a foot shorter. This was one of those first styles we did and it’s also the style I decided I was still bugged by the “knobby bun” thing and so the next time I did her hair, that’s when we came up with our Double Braided Bun for Shorter Hair.
But – despite the issue I have with her bun (because I know it’s probably just me that that bugs!), the style was cute, easy & quick and so we’re still sharing it with you! Besides, there are so many different ways you can change up this style it hopefully will get your creative juices flowing! I probably don’t need to give you step-by-step, but since that’s what I do … let’s get started!
Step 1 – Part out a long rectangular section of hair
Step 2 – Make a side ponytail
With the rest of the hair, excluding the rectangle section on top, secure a low side ponytail on the right side of the head.
Step 4 – Make rope braids with each small section
I secured each rope braid with an elastic at the end, but you can do whatever works best with the length of hair you’re working with. If you need help making a rope braid, you can watch our rope braid video here. You, of course, could do regular braids, or whatever your preference for this step.
Step 5 – Secure twists to ponytail
Step 6 – Braid the ponytail
I left the twists and elastics in and just incorporated them into my braid. If you’re working with longer hair, they’ll probably peek through the bun a bit which is cool. Secure the braid with an elastic.
