How To: 3 Braids & a Bun

Hey guys, did you hear? Braids are totes in right now! Okay I know they have been for awhile, but like every magazine (ever) writes, they're really versatile & easy to do. Plus braids get my hair out of my face, which is always a plus.

Worn here, I often wear my hair like this to go hiking or to run errands...why?
1. Day-old hair = I don't need to wash my hair that morning
2. No heating products = saves my hair from additional damage
3. Relatively quick to do (depending on how many braids you want to do)
4. Did I mention it gets my hair out of my face?

The lighting in the bathroom was terrible, the backlight made it look like a ghost was standing right behind me, and even though it was broad daylight, I was scaring I had to turn the camera around. Also, apologies for the video being longer than normal - I know you guys know how to braid, I just couldn't figure out how to fast-forward certain parts without the whole clip being fast-forwarded. In addition, I'm wearing this super comfy Nike sweatshirt (similar one found here)...I know, SO FASHUNS YOU GUYS.

What You'll Need:
+ 3 small elastics
+ 2 medium / large elastics
+ hairspray
+ glossing spray (optional)
+ rat-tail comb (optional)
