Hold the section of your hair outward with one hand. Don't leave too much hair down, or your final look will look sloppy.
Detangle your hair. Secure the bun.
And the best part is that this is the kind of look you can practice a bunch of times before your wedding with relatively little effort. This will widen the braid and create texture.
