This updo is a slight variation from our Simple Dread Bun tutorial.
First take 3 dreadlocks from each side underneath and make 2 plaits. Leaving the 2 plaits out put the rest of your hair up into a simple dread bun.
To create a simple dread bun start to put your hair in a high ponytail but don’t pull the hair all the way through, so it’s doubled up with the ends hanging out. Then wrap the ends of your hair around the elastic and tuck them in wherever they reach around. Watch the video tutorial below
Once your hair is up wrap the 2 plaits around the bun, one from each side and tuck them in.
The key is a good stretchy dread elastic. You can find the one we use here.
