Braided Bun Inspired by Princess Charlotte

Looking for a pretty bun hairstyle? Here is a braided bun hairstyle that was inspired by Princess Charlotte. The second I saw her hair during the Coronation, I knew I wanted to try it on Victoria.

When it comes to bun hairstyles, I feel like there are dozens that you could do in your hair. They can range from simple to messy to elegant to fun! I’ve always loved a bun hairstyle because it’s so easy to toss your hair up and GO! 🙂

When I saw Princess Charlotte’s gorgeous bun, I knew I wanted to try my best to recreate it in Victoria. Then I remembered that he had done a hairstyle just like it not too long ago, so I pulled that one and improvised a little to make it more royal looking. 🙂

If you’re looking for a pretty bun to wear for a special occasion or just to create a fancy hairstyle on your hair, try this one out. You will fall in love with it!

How To Do This Hairstyle

Here are the steps:

  1. Create 2 low pigtails.
  2. Braid each one and loop them through the hair elastics
  3. Take the braids and interloop them together
  4. Bobby pin into place

I just love this one and think it’s so elegant and so pretty! If you’re heading to a dance or a prom, this is a beautiful one to try on your hair!

Favorite Hair Products To Use

When it comes to hairstyles for kids, I feel like I could write a book! 🙂 We do hairstyles together almost every single day.

1. I know that it’s not always easy to have Victoria sit still, but a book, a device, or just talking time helps. Sometimes we play a game and that will help keep her still (although if you know my girl, she doesn’t like to sit still!).

2. I love using a leave-in conditioner spray on Victoria’s hair before I start. I just like to make sure there aren’t any tangles before we get going.

3. I love using hair oil, too on Victoria. It makes her hair nice and shiny and smooth to work with. I feel like this has been a huge game-changer for her when it comes to flyaways and keeping it healthy.

4. I love using hair elastics that don’t damage the hair.

I will continue to recommend the products we use and love because I think it’s important to share what people use that works.
