How To Style Festival Braided Space Buns
To begin, part your hair down the middle and grab a 2-inch section of hair about an inch from your hairline on the right side of your part.
Working with the hair from the section, begin to craft a standard French braid. Once the braid reaches the crown of your head, secure it with a small elastic.
Grab another 2-inch section of hair about an inch from your hairline on the left side of your part.
Repeat the same steps on the left side of your head, crafting a standard French braid and securing the braid at the crown of your head with a small elastic.
Once both braids are secure, pancake them for a voluminous effect.
