So, here is the most detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to achieve the lace rose bun.
What You’ll Need:
- Small clear hair elastics
- Hair gel
Gather everything you need for the lace rose bun before you start. Let’s get this show on the road!
- Comb your hair and apply hair gel to make the hair shiny and sleek.
- Carefully divide your hair into two parts.
- Leave a bit more in the top section of your hair than the bottom.
- Put the bottom section of your hair in an elastic band to keep it out of the way.
- Brush the top section of your hair and divide it into two sections, left and right.
- Weave the upper part into a loose french braid. The braid should be positioned at the left side, carefully add hair that was divided into the upper side.
- While braiding your hair, to create a lace effect, pull the sides of the hair, loosening up the parts of the braid. This will give it the lace effect you want.
- Make sure you have picked up all the left part of the hair and it has been pulled into the braid.
Great job, you’re more than halfway done!
- Ok, when you are done braiding that part, use a hair elastic to hold the braid while you start braiding the tail.
- Once you are through with the braiding, comb the hair.
- Secure using an elastic band.
- Now, roll the end to form the rose inspired bun.
- Adjust the bun to your liking, making sure the hairpins are not visible. Optional: You can also loosen the braid on the right side if you want.
- Loosen all your hair including the lace rose braid in the bun creating a voluminous and messy appearance.
- Wrap the bun with the tail of the braid and secure using hairpins to complete this unique style.
