Braided Updo

To be honest, I don’t have the best skills when it comes to doing my hair. I usually keep things simple like letting my hair down or clipping a piece to the side. After discovering a lot of hair tutorials through blogs, Pinterest, or YouTube, I’ve gathered up the courage to try different hairstyles. It has been fun experimenting with my hair, but I’m still just a beginner haha. It can be frustrating at times, but practicing does help. Without further ado, I present to you this easy braided updo inspired by this picture I found on Pinterest. I hope you enjoy it!

Step 1: Separate your hair into three equal parts. Start doing a french braid to one of the pieces on the sides, either the right one or left one. Remember to maintain the direction of the braid a bit towards the central hair piece, towards the back of your head kind of. Continue the french braid up to the lower part of your ear (the ear lobe), then switch to the normal braid technic until you finish. Secure your braid with an elastic band. Repeat this process to the hair strand on the opposite side, either the left one (if you started with the right one) or the right one (if your started with the left one).

Step 2: Once you have done the braids, twist the central hair strand into a bun and secure it with hair pins. Because I have a lot of hair, I used four hairpins.

Step 3: Grab one of the braids and twist it around the bun, passing first under the bun and the around. Secure its correct position with hair pins. I used about four hairpins. Do the same with the other braid. Remember that it has to pass under the bun first, then you fold it around the bun. 

Step 4: You can use hairspray to secure the updo.
