Two the Hard Way (braid n bun) - HOTW

I love the styles KLP chooses for her pinspired link-up and this one is no different. I thought it'd be a good style for my HOTW stint, so I got to recreating it after my last wash. I thought it was going to be pretty easy but my 10-weeks-post hair just did not want to cooperate. I usually prefer styles that allow me to work in smaller sections when stretching, so this style was a little bit of a challenge. Anyway, I got it done and I am enjoying the finished product. Check it out:

HOTW - braid & a bun

  • Section the top right (or left, whichever you prefer) side and set it aside.
  • Secure the rest of your hair into a ponytail holder.
  • Twist the ponytail into a bun.
  • Braid the aforementioned section (I started my braid with a cornrow to anchor it to my head better) and cross it over to the opposite side of the bun and secure.
  • Enjoy.

Be sure to check out KLP's interpretation of this style as well!
