1. Lace braid bun (h/t Style Better Bella)
A donut bun helps get the perfect bun shape. As you braid around the bun, you'll get a pretty look that's practically perfect in every way. The look is just a basic lace braid using the bunned-hair as your pickup section. Easy and cute!
2. Weaved bun (h/t Jem Hair)
Ths detailed twists in this beautiful bun are fun. The skinny piece work makes the braid look a little harder than it is. Make sure to have some bobby pins on hand to keep everything in place.
3. Upside down Dutch braid bun (h/t Annies Forget Me Knots)
I love that this looks casual and dressy all at the same time. This style is a bit tricker as you will be braiding from the bottom of your neck up to the top of your head. It's a simple dutch braid, so if you can get your handwork right, this look is an excellent quick, dressy option.
4. Double braided bun (h/t Scunci Hair)
Working a simple lace braid from the bottom to the top creates a gorgeous hairstyle. The double buns are a fun way to be a little more playful with your look. It's a great summer look that keeps your hair out of your face with a bit of pizazz.
5. Bohemian braided bun (h/t Aquamarinemakeup)If you have 10 minutes to spare, try this simple French-braided bun. Pro tip: You'll need to brush your hair all the way out because tangles will make the look a little more difficult to finish.
6. Tuxedo braid bun (h/t Makeup tutorials)
This fun look starts formal and tight and ends up a little more carefree. If you have highlights or low lights, this braided bun is the perfect option for showing them off. The delicate braiding at the bottom is such a stunning texture that you don't need anything else to dress the look up.
7. Waterfall braid bun (h/t Missy Sue)
The waterfall braid and messy bun let you get a little structure into your hair without too much extra work. (You'll look like you got ready even if you only had a few minutes between scarfing down breakfast and running out the door.)

Some of us have trouble keeping our arms up for long, or working with backward mirror reflections -- the answer to this problem is the reverse braid.

When most people think of braids, they picture thick, full-headed jobs that take a ton of time and serious finger strength. But, these trendy styles are just as cute and a lot less work than the traditional full braid.
