    Default Double Rose Buns Tutorial




    I've had some lovely comments in my album about this style and a request for a tutorial (capelli lunghi!) ... so here it is.


    (Assuming prior knowledge of rope braids and rose buns!)

    *Part hair in the middle
    *Make two small rope braids using front sections of hair - one on each side. Braid each to the end.
    *Divide the rest of the hair into two (or extend the middle parting down the back of the head).
    *Make two more rope braids at the back - one on the left and one on the right.
    *Coil each of the back rope braids into a rose bun and secure with a hairstick - try and get them symmetrical!
    *One at a time, bring the small front braids down the side of the head, and wrap around the rose bun from the middle to the outside, weaving under the hairsticks - be careful! In other words, wrap the left braid around the left bun clockwise; and wrap the right braid around the right bun anti-clockwise.

    I think this would look better if you used a lacing technique with the front braids. You know, adding sections of hair from the side as you braid down. You could also try wrapping the small braids around the rose buns in a figure-8 style.


    Have fun!

    Wow, gorgeous!! Thanks so much for the tutorial!! I totally understand the concept, but yours are just shockingly perfect! I'd love to see pictures of anyone else who tries this style!

    Edited:
    To the others who have been asking questions - I believe a rose bun is pretty similar to a regular bun, as far as I know the only difference is that it's done with a rope braid rather than a 3 strand (english?). Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    When I do a rope braid I don't do the twirling of each section all at once. I do it with each cross over. So it's like wind, wind, cross, wind, wind, cross (did that make any sense at all?) Also someone else, I wish I remembered who....could it have been Ccheck? gave a tip on rose buns that *really* helped me. When you wind it, sort of tighten it as you go. Otherwise mine will sort of unwind as I go.

    Here's my attempt. I added the lace braid as you suggested and I think it worked pretty well. I also sorta wrapped a figure 8 with the small braids

    It just that a single one of your double buns is a tad larger than my one and only bun. Baby fine hair compresses to nothing!

    Your hair is stunning so glossy! That style is lovely, very classic.

    Very nice!

    I can't do many of these fancier updos with my current length but I sure do admire them! (Someday . . . someday.)

    But when I see a new technique that I just can't wait to try until my hair grows longer, I simply take a smaller section of my hair, with less volume one doesn't need all the length. So even though I can't possibly wear my hair like this right now, I can apply some of this to a half-updo. Can't wait to try it out!

    So pretty. I'm all thumbs when it comes to braids and updos. Thanks for sharing.
