We’ve already told you that braids are back in a big way, but we can’t stop gushing over the creative styles that we keep seeing. Not on ourselves of course, all we’ve been able to master is the fishtail. But, since we’re going full force into a season full of braids, we’re trying to pick up a few pointers. Below, 
Kelly from Cutler Salon shows us how to create a braided updo for a boho twist on the chignon.

Step 1:

Use Garnier Fructis Style Body Boost Root Booster spray over hair and blow dry into hair.

Step 2:

Part the hair down the center of the head and French braid the hair along the side of the head. Repeat on the other side and secure braids against the head with bobby pins.

Step 3:

Pull hair into a braid at the nape of the neck. Secure with a hair tie.

Step 4:

Loop braid into itself and pin when you’re happy with the appearance of the bun.

I like it. I would never part my hair in the middle of my head though...not a good look on me. I would part it the way I normally do and try it that way though.

It is cute and very simple. I have done this to my dd's hair many a times. I also will do this but instead of a bun I will do a loop pony tail the keep the extra hair up and tease it. Or I will do a braid on each side then do then make 2 loops. It is hard to explain...gonna look for old photos.

Ok..these are from about 5 years ago. I can't find one with the bun but here is the double loop version.

Hehe, I love this one. She was (and still is!!) such a cutie! My little ham!

It's just o.k, your right about adding a flower.
I would have to part my hair for this because if not it would look messy!
