Braided Updo

This look is perfect for an elegant night out, bridesmaid up do, or even the bride! As a hair stylist, I must confess that I have done different variations of this up do on multiple brides over the past year, and it’s just beautiful. It fairly easy to do if you can french braid on yourself.

Start on one side of the head and begin to braid, moving toward the other side of the head. Make sure you’re pulling bigger sections of hair into the braid in order to make it look a little relaxed. once you reached the nape of the neck on the opposite side of the head you started on, finish the braid and secure with a hair elastic (my preference is always a clear elastic so it’s not seen). Wrap the braid around itself into a bun shape and secure with pins.

Voila! You’ve got yourself a beautiful elegant up do!
