Braided Donut Bun Tutorial

Braided Donut Bun Tutorial

The bun is a timeless hairstyle. It is glamorous, simple and classic. Nowadays, the donut bun variant is so popular, even little girls are sporting this kind of hairstyle.

It was last month when I bought my first ever donut bun maker at Pretty Nothings, an online shop based in Bacolod City. I decided to buy as I was eager to try what the fad is all about. I got fascinated with the results! It’s so perfect for special occasions, or even if you’re just having a bad hair day.

You might be wondering how to wear and make the perfect donut bun. Below is an easy hair bun tutorial with a twist. I decided to braid and wrap the extra strand of hair around my bun, so I came up with braided donut bun!

Here’s a quick tutorial on how to create this amazing look:
