Easy Braided Updo Tutorial!!

Hi everyone! I've had many questions about this look, so here is my how-to!! It's honestly super easy and only takes minutes to do :) I wear it whenever I'm in a rush in the morning and don't have time to straighten or curl my hair.

The finished look ^-^
Start by creating a deep side part.
Next section off a two inch piece of hair.  If desired, you could
section off more hair to create a bigger braid :)
Gather the rest of your hair into a ponytail and secure it with an elastic.
Wrap the ponytail tail around itself to create a bun.  Secure with more elastics.
If desired, you could skip this step and wear your hair in a ponytail :)
Braid the section you left out.  Just a regular three-section braid,
no fancy-french braiding required!!
Using a bobby pin, secure the braid to your head.
Depending how long your hair is, you may need more bobby pins to make the look neater.
I tuck the extra hair under my bun by securing it in the same elastic.  I also add a
second bobby pin to smooth everything down.  Add some hairspray if desired
to prevent flyaways and make your updo last all day!!
And you're finished!!
I hope this tutorial helped you! Thank you for reading :) xo


  1. Gah so easy! I will have to give this a go! Your hair is so shiny and smooth - mine will probably go all frizzy when I try it but I will try!

    1. Haha thank you!! My hair is smooth from applying lots of hairspray ;)
