4. The Braid Bun
a. Part your hair on one side and create two sections, one for the braid on the top section of your head and another for the bun.
b. If you know French braiding, you can try that or tie a normal braid in the top section. Tie it with a small rubber band.
c. Now braid the lower section of your hair as shown below.
d. Tie the upper section with pins and twist the lower one into a bun. Secure with pins.

5. The Rainy Day Bun
Having a bad hair day in the humidity? Simply tie this high bun instead of a low one for an instantly chic look.
a. Gather all your hair at the top of your head.
b. Twist it like a regular bun and tie it. If you have short hair, tie a high ponytail and then twist and secure with pins.
