Star Bun - 4th Of July Hairstyles

Another star shaped hairstyle!

Star Bun Hairstyle Tutorial
For today's hair tutorial, we are creating a "star bun."  This would be a cute and patriotic hairstyle for the 4th of July. I could also see this working as a "dance bun" for ballerinas & figure skaters. 
Star Hairstyle Tutorial
This style is sort of a combination of our braided bubble bun and our star pigtails.  We actually filmed this style quite awhile ago and have been waiting to post it for the 4th of July.  Along with this star bun... we filmed another cute variation, which we are both in love with!  So... watch for another fun and unique bun coming next week.  ;)
Star Updo Tutorial
As you may have guessed by looking at this style, we have used our Bun Maker or "hair donut" to create the base of this bun.  If you do not have a bun maker, you can always use a sock to create a sock bun instead.  There are many tutorials on YouTube showing how to do that. If you are wanting to purchase a bun maker, they are pretty common and fairly inexpensive.  We found ours at our local Sally Beauty Supply.

Star Shaped Hairstyle
We have used regular 3 strand braids to create our star.  Of course, you can use any type of braid or twist you want.  I'm thinking rope braids would be a super cute variation. 

Supplies needed:
  • 2 hair elastics or hair ties
  • several bobby pins
  • a Bun Maker or sock bun
  • finishing hair spray (optional)
