Braid Wrapped High Bun

IMG_0372Hi loves! Easter is coming up and I can’t wait to celebrate! I love Spring and am so glad the holiday is in April this year! I am sharing my favorite updo- a braid wrapped high bun that is so easy to do and can be casual or dressy. I have long hair but if you have short or just want extra volume- you can add extensions or a donut bun maker. The denim jacket I’m wearing is from f21 last year- it was under $30! Let me know if you plan to wear this updo to any upcoming events!

Braid Wrapped Hair Bun Supplies:


  • Step 1 / Begin by brushing half of your  hair up into a ponytail and tie it off with a hair band. Then add the remaining hair to the ponytail to give more volume.
  • Step 2 / Grab the hair bun and place it underneath the ponytail.
  • Step 3 / Slide bobby pins around the edges of the bun to pin it against the head.
  • Step 4 / Combine all the hair together at the base, twisting it together and pin it underneath the bun with spin pins.
  • Step 5 / Next combine all the hair from the ponytail. Leave a piece out and braid it into a regular three strand braid.
  • Step 6 / Go back over the braid and pull on the edges to make it wider.
  • Step 7 / Wrap the braid over the top of the head, in front of the bun, and pin down the ends making sure to hide them underneath the bun.
  • Step 8 / Spray any flyaways with hairspray and smooth them down with a comb.

Floral Bloom

Happy Spring everyone! My favorite part of this season is the blossoming flowers everywhere. That’s what makes this floral dress so perfect! It was so fun taking the photos with my adorable little Yorkie, Kaylee for the recent Lulus pet selfie contest- wish me luck!
My pretty floral dress is from CR and was such a steal! It is such a fun and flirty chiffon shift dress. The elastic around the neckline and wrists creates a comfortable off the shoulder top and flowing long sleeves. There’s nothing better than a dress that’s both cute and comfy! I paired this look with my new favorite CR Lace-Up Slingback Wedge Sandals. My accessories are also from Charlotte Russe- just love my pretty pink velvet choker (came in a 5 pack of chokers)! I hope you enjoyed this post- subscribe if you’d like.
