The Braided Dolly Bun

It's easier than it looks


By Amy Lawrenson

Yesterday Goody sent me this small drawer unit packed with all its ingenious hair accessories which inspired me to try out an up-do today.

Thanks to the rain my hair was a frizzy mess and this pretty up-do has disguised that, thankfully!

Follow this step-by-step to recreate this Braided Dolly Bun at home - it should take you no more than five minutes:

Give your hair a good brush to detangle.

Tip your head upside down.

Take an inch-wide section of hair at the nape of your neck and split in to three.

Start plaiting upwards, taking pieces of hair from each side to create a reverse French braid.

Once you reach the top of your head, gather all the leftover hair and twist it into a bun on top of your head.

Secure with a Goody Ouchless Elastic, from £2 at Boots.


UPDATE: The draw pictured above is from Muji, £7.95 and the drawer dividers are from £1.50. Genius! Click here to visit Muji now...
