Pull Through French Braid & Messy Bun Tutorial

Pull Through French Braid and Messy Bun Tutorial

I don’t know why I do this to myself, but I always decide to film hairstyles that I have never tried until the camera is rolling.. duh Kirsten, you should maybe practice first…. but this time it really worked out and  I am now obsessed with this style. The pull through braid part is so stunning I can’t wait to incorporate it into other hairstyles – a full side braid using this technique, a half up style, a mohawk – the options are endless! ;)

And if you want a good tutorial for a messy bun, this probably isn’t it because I kinda just throw it together but this is what I do so I thought I would just tell it as it is!

Hope you guys like it and make sure to tag me in all of your braid photos on insta – I love seeing them and get so much inspiration from all of you!

  1. part your hair on the said and take a 2-3 inch section from right next to your part, leaving about an inch section in the front. and secure with a small clear elastic to make your first ponytail.
  2. take the piece you left out in the front and a piece from behind the first ponytail, join them together over the first ponytail, and secure together to create the second ponytail
  3. take a piece from the front/under the ponytails and a piece from the back, join them together over the second pony and secure
  4. repeat again, taking a piece from the front near your ear and a piece from the back and securing with an elastic to create a fourth ponytail
  5. take a second and pull apart the first four ponytails to make it look like a thick braid
  6. do one more ponytail joining a piece in the front and back
  7. start the messy bun by taking a larger elastic and making a ponytail/looped bun – then scrunch up the bun and use small clear elastics to create a bubbly messy bun
  8. once it is as messy or put together as you want it, use bobby pins to secure in place
