Someone on instagram asked about it being possible to achieve this look with short hair, shoulder length. In case they read this..
My hair is right above my shoulders and the original photo is of my hair. It’s possible :o) The trick is to use a few more bobby pins. The bun will be smaller, but will have the same over all effect.

that is adorable! I always have trouble braiding my own hair (its blonde, fine and medium length) so it always needs to be just right. I do love the look and am going to try. (if not my stylist will have a new trick to learn and practice) love it!

Just tried this this morning with dry hair (my hair is about 2/3 of the way down my back) and this worked great! I put an elastic around the bun too, since my hair is really heavy and long bobby pins wouldn’t keep it together alone. It only took me about 5 min to do on myself! :) Lovely!
