  1. On one side, take a strand near the ear and twist it to make a coil
  2. Take it round behind the head and make it tight so it stays in place.
  3. Hold the first coil with one hand
  4. Do the same on the other side of your head
  5. Bring the two coils together, like for a low ponytail (tighten the coils so they don't sag!)
  6. Braid the coils together (Depending on how thick your hair is, braid loosely or tightly for a thick or thin style)
  7. Once the braid is finished, turn it in on itself, into a bun
  8. Attach with pins
  9. Keep the bun natural looking by teasing out a few strands on the sides

And there you go! A romantic, feminine style in just a few minutes. This hairstyle is all about minimum effort for maximum effect — perfect for any mom.
