Step-by-Step: Braided Bun

Festival season is upon us, and no look is truly complete without a boho-chic hairstyle to match. The perfect festival-ready style combats frizz for all-day wear and works just as well on freshly-washed hair as it does on second- or third-day hair. Just in time for Coachella—the first of many major music festivals this spring and summer—Moroccanoil created a style that fits the bill perfectly. 

Step-by-Step

  • Combine a small amount of Moroccanoil Volumising Mousse and 1-2 pumps of Moroccanoil Original Treatment and massage through towel-dried hair.

  • Blast hair dry with a blow-dryer on medium heat, using only your fingers to separate the hair.

  • Create three sections, two on either side of the head and one at the back. Massage 1-2 pumps of Moroccanoil Treatment Light into your hands to help you create three loose braids. Secure each braid with an elastic. 

  • Spray braids with Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray.

  • Cross the braids over one another and pin in place. Repeat this technique until you end up with a loose braided bun.

  • Once you are happy with the shape, ensure you have secured the buns with enough pins and start to loosen the braids with your fingers for a softer look.

  • Spritz Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray over the hair and gently tease out some fly-aways with your fingers for a more effortless look.
