Heatless Hair #1

In attempt to make my hair more healthy I have been seriously cutting down the amount of heat that I use to style it, which has lead me to find new and interesting hair style to try out this fall.
This first style simply involves dutch braiding your hair into a bun.

1. Part your hair into a deep side parting.
2. Dutch braid (or french braid if you prefer) the front two sections following the line of your head and ending at the ear. Finish each braid off by plaiting the hair to the tips. To dutch braid simply separate the hair into three sections and do a normal plait but taking a little bit more hair to the outer two sections each time you cross it under the middle section
3. Gather the rest of your hair into a bun and secure with bobby pins or a hair tie.

TIP: For an easier and neater looking bun try using a bun donut. Simply place the donut around your pony tail and ensure all of the donut is covered with hair before securing with a hair tie and wraping around the lose ends.
DIY: A bun donut can be made yourself by using an old, clean sock. Simply fasten your sock into a loop and place over the pony tail, then continue as you would with the donut.
