Analysis (whoo, scientific): The hair is pulled back into a bun comprised of tons of braids, at least some of which are multiple-stranded (looks like 5). The hair in the center of the bun is unbraided, while a rope braid from the hairline is pulled across the bun in the center.

Directions: Take out a small piece of hair from each side of your head, just above your ears. Gather the rest of your hair into a ponytail. Take small sections out of the ponytail and braid them, either into 5-strand braids or just regular braids, depending on how fancy you want to get. Coil the unbraided hair into a bun, leaving the braided sections out. The unbraided hair serves as the foundation for the braids. Wrap the braids around the bun, pinning it all very securely. Now take the hair you left out at the beginning and braid both sections into rope braids. Pull them over the entire bun, crossing them in the middle and tucking the ends in under any of the other braids. Pin the whole thing a whole lot more, and that's it!
