In the morning after you shower, get dressed and do your makeup, we never have enough time to do our hair. However, a pretty bun in a few minutes, that's possible. You just need to know how. Here are the 7 simple steps for making a trendy braided bun yourself.

Every morning you have the same question: what can I do with my long hair? Especially since we are not all styling and bun experts, we don't necessarily have many accessories, or much time to spend! So that your original style does not feel as hard as climbing Mount Everest, we have a solution: The Braided Bun! 

Tools needed: hair brush, pins, hair conditioner
For impeccable results, you have to have smooth hair that is easy to style. We have chosen a product range that is just right for this: Pantène Lisse et Soyeux.

Apply Shampoo and conditioner for perfect, shiny, really smooth hair, the once-a-week mask to strengthen the treatment effect and a really clever product: soufflé (a light mousse that nourishes hair) for hair texture that is ideal for styling.
Your hair is enhanced! Now we get to work!

Step 2: Start on one side. Take a strand near the ear and twist it to make a coil. Take it round behind the head and make it tight so it stays in place. 
With one hand hold the first coil. With the other, twist on the other side.

Step 3: Bring the two coils together, like for a low ponytail. Watch out! You have to tighten the coils so that they don't sag!

Step 4: Then we braid. Depending on how thick your hair is, you braid loosely or tightly for a thick or thin style.

Step 6: Attach it with pins. To avoid the bun looking too severe, tease out a few strands on the sides. That makes the look more natural.
