The 4th of July is a big celebration in the U.S. It mainly is a time for me though to do new hairstyles that are great for the holiday. If you haven’t already guessed, yes this is gonna be a 4th of July hairstyle that is fun to express your excitement for this holiday.
I never would have come up with this idea if it hadn’t been for Pinterest. (BTW if you are not following me, then just simply click that button over on the right to do so) I love using Pinterest to find ideas for hairstyles and there were a ton of ways people were doing their hair with one thing, a bandana. Except most of the time, all they were really doing was using it as a headband. So what I decided to try was, why not mixing it in a braid?
This hairstyle literally turned out a lot cuter than I imagined it to be. It’s things like this when you really discover hairstyles. You just experiment!! That is really all it took to come up with this hairstyle and look how awesome it turned out! Who knew that just taking a bandana and braiding it in hair could turn out as something fun and easy to wear on the 4th.
Now you know what to do. Try this hairstyle out and take a picture and tag it with #BandanaBun. I would love to see how many of you try it out. Comment below if you have a favorite thing to do on a holiday like this and as always, Keep Styling!
Step by Step:
- Pull hair up into a high ponytail
- Take your bandana and fold it up as a triangle (corner to corner)
- Then take the end of it and stick it through your elastic you used for your ponytail
- Pull your bandana up until it reaches the desired length of your hair
- Now divide your hair in half, leaving the bandana in the middle as your third strand
- Begin to braid a regular braid down until you run out of hair
- Next, tie off the bottom and wrap the braid around to create a bun (make sure you hide your extra bandana we pulled through at the beginning)
- Use bobby pins to secure it off (if that extra bandana is still showing just tuck it up under the rest of the hair)
