Easy Braided Updo 

This updo is much easier to achieve than it looks!

YOU WILL NEED:   A teasing comb, some texture spray or powder, bobby pins, elastics and hair spray.

STEP 1: Add the texture powder/spray to the hair for grip and texture and go ahead and establish the volume that you want by teasing. Divide the hair into 4 sections; 2 in the front and 2 in the back. Braid each section of hair into a standard 3 strand braid and secure the ends with elastics.

STEP 2: Starting with one of the back braids, gently pull the edges of the braid out to EXPAND the braid for a looser look.

STEP 3: After you have loosened the braid, roll it up toward your scalp at the napeof your neck and pin in place. Make sure you check for balance; if a loop look out of place simply pin it down.

STEP 4: Repeat on the opposite side in the back.

STEP 5: Take one of the side braids and slightly pull the edges out to loosen. Then, simply drape it over the pinned hair in the back and pin on the opposite side.

STEP 6:  Repeat on the opposite side. Finish with hairspray.
