Steps to Tie Upside Down French Braid Bun

Step 1: Part the hair from your ears forward and clip it up.

Step 2: Flip the remaining hair upside-down and begin doing a French braid. Separate a triangular section at the nape of your neck and split it into three equal sections. Cross the right section over the middle. Then cross the left section over the middle. Then from the right, cross the remaining section over the middle.

Step 3: Now before repeating your crossover motion on the left side again, gather additional hair from the left side and add it to the left section. As you continue to braid, keep adding hair to the right and left sections. Keep in mind, the braid will have more detail if the sections are smaller. And the closer your fingers are to the scalp, the tighter the braid will be.

Step 4: When you get to the crown, fasten it with an elastic band.

Step 5: Remove the clip from the top section. Combine the hair with the end of the braid to make a high ponytail. Secure it with an elastic band.

Step 6: Pull the pony tail through a styling donut. Fan the hair evenly around, and slip an elastic band over the top of it.

Step 7: Wrap the remaining hair around the base of the styling donut and secure it with hair pins to finish the bun.

A little styling tip - As you wrap the hair around, stick hair pins directly into the bun to hide them and further secure the wrapped hair.
