Here is my tribute to her romantic braided chignon on the front cover.
Take a section of hair from your side and braid it. Repeat with the other side.
Wrap both braids around to the other side and secure with bobby pins to create the braided headband.
Add volume to your hair by back-brushing the section behind the braids.
This is a great place to stop if you want to leave your hair down.
Gather your hair into a loose pony tail, pushing up to add extra volume.
Divide the pony tail in half.
Loop the top half up and the bottom half down and secure with another elastic.
Tuck the ends back into the elastic.
Tuck, pin, and play with your hair until it lays how you like it.
Now you have a finished bun!
And of course, I love to embellish everything, so you can pin your favorite flower to the side of your bun for a romantic effect! Mine here.
