1. Divide your hair in two, pinning the top to give you room for your braid.
2. Next, start your braid as you normally would by sectioning out two pieces. Tip: lower your head forward to allow a semi-flat surface to construct your braid.
3, 4, & 5. Continue braiding until you have braided up the entire section and secure with bobby pins; you will remove them later so it doesn’t matter if they show at this point.
6. Now, gather your top section into your desired bun, either a perfect ballerina bun or a messy bun and secure them with more bobby pins–this time hiding them efficiently.
7. Fix up any flyways and you’re done
