Low Bun with Braids

Happy Thursday, friends! It’s almost the weekend and for whatever reason, this week just feels extra long. But I’m in a wedding this Friday of one of my dearest friends & I get to wear fabulous gold shoes. I can’t wait to show you guys, they’re just gorgeous. Although I am something like 6’5″ when I wear them, but oh well!

I’m back with another hair tutorial today! Continuing with the 12 days of holiday hairstyles for you. This look is actually very simple ¬†and yet looks more intricate. If you might have noticed, most of my hair tutorials — if not all — are simple. I want moms and busy women to feel like they can look fabulous too and in not a lot of time. I hope you’re inspired to try one of these looks! Here are the past tutorials from the 12 days:

Today I have the braided bun. Check it out:

Braided Bun

These pictures were taken after the whole day of wearing my hair like this, so there’s a little frizz going on. This style is also very good for second or third day hair, when you just haven’t had the time to wash it. It stays put and it’s out of your face.

Add a pretty headband and you’re ready to go. This can be dressed up a bit with a nicer headband or more casual without a headband at all or just a more casual one. I have made a video tutorial for this, I hope you like it!

    Hi, just watched some of your hairdo videos and loved them! You mentioned in this one that you were wearing a headband from an Etsy shop. Just wanted you to know I have an Etsy shop and have a lot of ADULT items available included hand beaded bobby pins, wonderful large snap barrettes that are great for pulling back to one side or holding one side back for an upsweep. Also have lots of pretty headbands and bling clips. Oh, and I have a Glamour Gems section with beautiful bead and a pet friendly section with unique bling for your furry friends too.

    I hope you will check me out and would love to hear from you. I do custom orders if you’re looking for something special. Prices are low and right now use the code ILOVEGLITZ to save 20% off.
