Life is full of special moments, but getting married is one of the few that little girls dream about. The fairy tale event has to be just right. Ask any bride, and she'll tell you that every single detail, from the music to the dress to her hairstyle, was chosen with painstaking care.

1. Brush the hair until smooth, and create a ponytail at the nape of the neck. Secure with an elastic band.
2. Gently loosen the ponytail so that it's no longer tight against your head.
3. Braid the ponytail into a simple three-strand braid and secure the ends with another elastic band.
4. Loosen the braid by tugging slightly on each portion to create a fluffy appearance.
5. To make the bun, lift up the braid and twist it around the top elastic.
6. Tuck the ends under and use bobby pins to hold the braid in place.
7. For the finishing touch, slip the headband into place. If it doesn't fit snugly, use a few more bobby pins to keep it from slipping.
8. Smooth down any loose hair around the face and finish with hair spray if desired.

There are a few combinations in this world that were just meant to be: peanut butter and jelly, chocolate and peanut butter, Batman and Robin, Han Solo and Chewbacca, and these braids.
