Braided Pinwheel Bun

Braided Pinwheel Bun

Many of you guys may have noticed that buns are crazy huge this year. Dancers, gymnasts, students, moms – everyone loves bun! And we’ve been coming up with lots of buns lately including pinwheel bun. But today, we want to make pinwheel bun with a twist. Well, it’s not literally a twist because the original pinwheel bun have a lots of twist already. So instead of twisting, we will be braiding! Something new, eh? Yes! Let’s do this awesome bun.

 

1. Make a ponytail. It’s up to you whether it’s low or high but I suggest the high one.

2. Insert a donut bun maker over the hair tie. If you don’t have one, here’s how to make a sock donut.

6. Create the first twist of the pinwheel by wrapping the braid under the bun and over its hole.

7. Connect the end of the first braid to the next strands that you’ll get, do a new three-strand braid and wrap it around the donut bun maker.
