In this week's hairstyle tutorial we are showing yet another variation of the "multi strand pull through braid ponytail" which we posted a few weeks ago. While working with this braid, we noticed the pretty "sideways fishtail" design that was created when each layer of the ponytail was opened up and turned inside out and thought this woven pattern would be beautiful incorporated into the center of a bun.
This updo has an elegant look to it and would be pretty for a Prom, wedding, Homecoming, recital, communion, church, dance, figure skating, etc.

Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
- 1 medium size hair tie or elastic for the top of the ponytail.
- 2 clear elastics to help hold in layers while you are rolling up the bun (optional.)
- Several bobby pins.
- Pomade, gel, finishing hairspray, etc. (optional.)
I remembered seeing something kind of similar on a fellow hair vlogger "sweetheart hair designs" instagram account a few months ago and went digging for their photo after I filmed this tutorial to look at their bun again. Our hairstyles turned out quite different from each other but the concept is very similar, so if you like this style... you should go check out their woven bun as well!
P.S. Yes, this is the third week in a row we have used this braid! I thought it was just so beautiful, so I wanted to do a few things with it. I promise we will be posting something different next week. ;)
