A hairstyle tutorial inspired by the Disney movie "Frozen." This is our take on the bun and braid Anna was wearing at the coronation ceremony.
How many of you have seen Disney's latest animated movie (Frozen?) We watched it over this past Thanksgiving weekend and loved it. Of course, beyond the cute story, I couldn't help but notice all of the adorable hairstyles throughout! This particular hairstyle (on Anna) was my daughter's favorite. And since "our Princess" has pretty much the same reddish brown hair color and length as Anna, we just had to try and re-create this bun!
Trying to create a hairstyle that was originally drawn for an animated character can sometimes be quite challenging. Human hair tends to have a few more issues than cartoon hair. ;) So, keeping that in mind... this is obviously not an exact replica of the original style, but just our interpretation. Also, Anna has bangs (or fringe) and "our Princess" does not. If you have bangs, all the better for this particular style! I think my favorite part of this hairstyle is the darling braided headband placed directly behind her bangs. Super cute.

I was waiting for a good view of the back of her bun the entire time I was watching the movie and there were a couple of good shots. But of course, I couldn't find a picture of the back of the hairstyle online. So, I kind of had to go off of memory. There are also many different ways you could go about creating the bun and depending on the length of hair you are working with, you may want to change things up a bit. For example, if you are working with layered hair, you might have more luck with a rope braid instead of simply twisting the hair like we did. And, if your hair is just too short to wrap up in a circular shape, you could really just create a standard bun instead. Whatever works, right?
The main character Elsa (Anna's sister) also wore several cute hairstyles in the movie. I noticed an elegant twist updo at one point, as well as a darling French braid. Disney really did a great job with the braids and hairstyles in this movie!
