This gorgeous braided bun makes Amanda look like royalty—Hollywood royalty. Get the Look: Blow dry your hair and put it into a ponytail three fingers below where the crown starts to slope down. Separately, take a fat weft of hair and braid it. Make sure it's really tight, then braid your ponytail. Place your hand like a pillow to wrap your natural braid around it in an 8-shape. Pin it down (making x's with bobby pins), but leave the end out. Take the weft braid and stick it up into the bottom/center of the figure 8. Pin the braided weft in a circle around your natural figure-8 braid. Pin as you come around every two inches. Go around and then past the bottom center where you started. End the weft braid to the left. Now you'll have two ends sticking out (your real braid and the weft braid). Fold those over (so you can't see the ends) and pin them into the center. Spray all over with hairspray, smoothing the front of your hair so there are no fly-aways.
