Never Ending French Braid Bun

French Braiding, Circular Style

I'm not exactly sure of the "official" name of this braid, or if it even has one. I've seen it done before, but I've never seen the name. So, if you know... please tell us in the comments. :)

We're calling it the Never Ending French Braid Bun because it's hard to tell where the braid starts and where it ends! This could also be called a French Braid crown or a Halo Braid. Well, whatever you want to call it... it's a fun and unique french braid hairstyle that probably isn't done very often!

You could do this hairstyle in several different variations. We actually did a hairstyle using this same concept awhile back in a half ponytail. You can see that one here: Rays of Sunshine Hairstyle.

Here is the hair style using one single braid/bun:

circular french braidsIn pigtails, this actually reminds me of a Princess Leia Hairstyle. ;)

Of course if you wanted to, you could add some flowers or ribbons to this hairdo. I think it would be an adorable Hairstyle For Easter Sunday!

  20. We always do this hairstyle for Christmas since it still looks really good even after they have slept in it (we don't want crazy hair for Christmas pictures) My mom used to do this in my hair too when I was little, and we always called it a crown braid.

  32. that is amazing my daughter had just seen this in a picture in one of our church board books and asked me to do it, so I hopped online to figure it out- our first attempt came out ok, but I think I will try it your way since it was a booger adn a half to do the way I found directions for. You are an answer to our prayers! Thank you.

  36. Hi! I'm 20 and don't have any kids yet, but I just love this blog! It's so great to get ideas for my own hair ^_^ I learned to fishtail braid from you :) So thanks! On a side note, I've been to quite a few Renaissance-period faires where they pretty much call this beautiful braid a French crown. Or a Dutch crown, if you use a Dutch braid rather than French.

  39. Your blog is my "go-to" source for great hair. I am inspired and in awe by your creations and talent. Your videos and photo tutorials are very helpful and the key to our success. I needed a fancy "do" for my little bridesmaid daughter at a wedding and this "do" just might be the ticket! Thanks for such a great resource for creative, interesting, fun hair. I love it!!!
