Braids look different on everyone, so using a simple braid to spice up your regular ponytail or bun can be a great way to stand out from other gymnasts!

Follow these steps from MissySue.com to achieve the Perfect Simple Braid into a Bun for your Gymnastics Meet!

  1. Find the spot where you want to start your braid, and take a 2″ section of hair right at the hairline and divide it into three pieces.
  2. Begin the braid by crossing the back piece over the middle then the front piece over the middle.
  3. Next, cross the back piece over the middle and bring it in to the larger section of hair to create the french braid style.
  4. Cross the front piece over the middle, bringing in another larger section of hair.
  5. Continue braiding until the braid reaches a point you’d like it to end at, and finish braiding the hair into a regular braid.
  6. Tie off the braid with a clear elastic band.
  7. Next, you can gather the rest of the hair into a low ponytail, messy bun, or high and tight “Aly Bun”!
  8. Pin down any loose pieces to create the look you want.
  9. Finish with a few spritzes of hairspray and swipe on your favorite lipstick and glitter eyeliner!
