I’ve been mesmerized by the Small Things Blog hair tutorials for awhile now. Pretty sure everyone is. This one has 12 million views on YouTube, so, I think you’re in good hands with this one.

3. Bubble Bun Tutorial

Super fun, short video to watch on how to make a “bubble bun” and I think she also calls it a “fan bun” in the video.

Makeup Wearables is a great YouTube channel full of super easy, useful beauty and hair hacks.
