BRAIDED WRAPPED BUN

I had a few concerns from you guys after posting this picture on Instagram, that I took the plunge and chopped my hair. Don't worry my friends. Here is proof that its still long as ever. I am for sure in need of a nice trim and an updated color. The holidays is making it difficult for this to happen though. Where to put your money.

Well today I have a little hair tutorial for you all. It's super simple, but LOTS of bobby pins are required. At least for all my heavy haired sisters out there. Also, Eric and I are heading off to DC for the holidays tomorrow. I've never been so I am super excited to explore historical site and see pretty holiday decorations. Any suggestions out there for places to see/do/eat are much appreciated!! Make sure to follow along on our adventures over on Instagram!

Forewarning, I'm not quite sure why these pictures came out so fuzzy. It's a shame, because this braided wrapped bun was a masterpiece, if I do say so myself. You don't want to know how many bobby pins were in there. Curse you thick, heavy hair. But looks like someone needs a new camera for Christmas. That or lighting equipment. *cough cough*


To Create
step one: Part hair down the center and create two french braids. Secure with small elastic.
step TWO: Here is where the bobby pins come into play. Take one braid and start to create a low circle with the braid. Secure with as many bobby pins as possible.
step three: Repeat with other braid in opposite direction. Make sure to fill in the whole bun with your braids!
step Four: Go around and secure with more bobby pins until it feels completely secure.

  6. I've been loving your hair posts. During November I blog everyday and the theme is "What I Love Most" in honor of you a "What I Love Most is Braids," is coming soon. I think I will have time to shoot my daughters with braids this Saturday and I will for sure be looking back at all of your hair posts. I have them bookmarked. Thanks for the inspiration. Love,

    I'm coming to Utah for Thanksgiving. Do you live there? Anyhow, it's going to be basically going to be a high of like 24 the entire time we are there. It's going to be a humbling experience for the beach going Californians.....ahahahahahahaha!!!

    1. Aw, that's amazing! You are just the sweetest! Can't wait to see how all the braids turn out. I no longer live in Utah, we are back up in our home state of Washington! But we will actually be in DC over this upcoming holiday!

      Keep your California bodies warm!!

  8. I was in DC this summer for a weekend - my friend keeps on interning there, so I made a visit there finally and she took me on an epic food tour. Some musts -- Founding Farmers for brunch (crab cake benedict and the french toast OMG OMG), Ted's Bulletin for their famous pop tarts, Baked + Wired for their cupcakes. Can't tell you too much about the historical sites bc I insisted on eating the whole time / only did a cursory tour of the monuments, but I have heard the Newseum is amazinggggg!!

  10. Love this look so much!! I'm gonna have to go out and buy more bobby pins so that I can try it. I live just outside of DC and love it. Of course you have to go and see all of the historical monuments but you should also check out the Willard hotel- it's beautiful this time of year! As far as places to eat go I love Ted's Bulletin and Georgetown Cupcakes is a must! Hope you have a great trip!
