You may recognize the first few steps in this video tutorial (below) from our pinwheel bun shortcut video that we posted a few weeks ago. Although both hairstyles are started the same way, the end results are completely different. We love that both of these buns are fairly quick and easy to make, with minimal braiding skills required!
This textured updo has an elegant, romantic, glamorous (almost Audrey Hepburn) feel to it and would be great for many formal or special occasions; Weddings, Prom, Homecoming, dances, church, recitals, communions, baptisms, holidays, etc. I'm thinking this would also be an adorable hairstyle for Valentine's Day!
