Hairstyle: Asymmetrical Boho Bun

Today I'm wearing an Asymmetrical Boho Bun.

I did a rather loose Dutch lace braid from my right temple to my left ear. Making a lace braid is just like making a regular French or Dutch braid, except that I only add new hair to the outermost strands as I go.

And to be honest, the term "Dutch braid" is really a misnomer, but it seems to be the common terminology for an inverted French braid. With a Dutch braid, the centre strand is always braided over the other two strands rather than under as in a usual French braid.

After I finished braiding, I just twisted a bun under my left ear and pinned it into place. It has a bit of a messy look, but it just doesn't look right to me if it's too perfect. It should look as though it's just thrown together.

I hope that everyone's week is off to a good start.

'Til tomorrow, my friends. Much love to all.


  1. I love this 'do, Franny. It is so pretty. :D

  2. Wow!! That style looks so pretty on you!

  3. Well I wouldn't know a Dutch braid from an Afghani braid and wouldn't be able to make any braid on the back or side of my head. Hats off to you for the wonderful styling expertise you possess.

  4. That's so pretty! I'll definitely be rocking this style soon!!


I love hearing from you.
