Sharing my secret (well maybe not so much anymore) on how style an easy braided updo that looks and is effortless.
Since I work in the restaurant business (just through school, thank the Lord) I have to wear my hair up basically 85% percent of the week.
Alas, I’ve gotten pretty crafty at finding ways to avoid getting incredibly bored with it. And this is one of my favorites.
Literally, every time I wear my hair this way someone asks how I do it.
So I thought I’d share a tutorial with you on how easy this really is (despite my better judgment telling me to keep letting people think I actually put effort into this).
A Braided Updo is a Great Summer Hairstyle
The best way to keep cool and enjoy a beach-like hairstyle all day long is by wearing an elastic band.
This will stay in place no matter what you do, whether it’s running errands, a date night, or going out with friends for the evening!

Materials Needed for Easy Braided Updo
Steps in Creating an Easy Braided Updo
Step 1 — Braid your hair into one strand.
Step 2 — Begin twisting your hair around the base of the braid (kind of like cinnamon bun, which I could go for right about now).
Step 3 — Tuck the end of the braid under and bobby pin into place. Depending on the length of your hair, you may need more than one pin.
