Today’s hair tutorial video features 2 of our favorite bun hairstyles that we thought would be perfect for Homecoming or Prom. If you are looking for a unique and fairly easy updo, either of these sleek and glamorous buns will do the trick.
We originally posted these hairstyles 5 years ago when my daughter was only 11. She’s 16 now and will actually be going to her own High School Homecoming in a few weeks! We are assuming many of you have never seen this video, so we wanted to resurface it again.

This tutorial shows how to create these bun hairstyles using a knotted braiding technique. These 2 styles would not only be great for formal dances, but many other occasions including: Weddings (bridal hairstyle, or flower girl hairstyle) communions, baptisms, recitals, church, Easter, etc.
