Luana Braids, Civil War Variation

More secure than a regular bun, braided buns are great for reenactments. This is an adult variation on Luana braids.

1. Make Luana braids.

  1. Both styles are beautiful! I think I like the second variation better – but I’m not sure! :p I think I am going to start trying some more styles on my own hair now – I’m tired of the braid bun at the back of my neck or just clipping some of my hair back with a clip! 😀

    • I’m glad you like it! That’s why I started this blog, to “boredom-bust.” If you try one of my styles, could you post a picture? I’d love to see some results.

      The final variation of Luana braids is up. I love that style because it is for long hair, but definitely not a bun!

  2. Sure! Where do you want me to post it?

    • You could e-mail me the picture; I think that would work best. I’ll do a “reader results” post sometime this weekend. Thank you!

  3. I did the second variation today and I have changed my mind – I like both but the first is my favorite!! I’ll probably do it for church tomorrow. 😀

  6. Your hair is beautiful and so much longer and thicker than mine. I hope someone someday has a blog for the longish, fine-haired woman who loves historical and pretty styles. But I won’t hold my breath.

    You could wrap your hair in a grocery twistie and still look beautiful.

  7. Such braids have been a gift from above as mentioned in 1 COR. 11:15. I plan on having a bride from the UKRAINE with truly lengthy tresses, and above all else will wear simular braids thanks to a widowed cousin of mine who was a professional hairdresser a great deal of her life until she settled down to being a common American housewife.
