A few months ago I shared a fun Summer updo featuring these oh-so-classic Chignon Clips gifted from Seattle-based France Luxe. If you’re a regular MCLV reader you’ll know that I’m a big fan of a chic updo. I rarely have the time or inclination to “do” my hair so it’s hardly ever worn down without expert intervention.
Another thing that I adore? Braids!
My childhood love affaire with braids actually began after roughly two dozen viewings of Street Fighter – One of the characters wore her long hair in two French braids and I begged my babysitter to teach me how to braid. I braided my hair daily for MONTHS after that.
Since I’ve moved on from pigtails – Most of the time anyway – Here’s a quick & easy four-step braided updo for you to try!
[1.] Part hair in the middle and French braid one or both sides,
[2.] Finish the braid by pulling in all of your hair, fasten with a clear elastic if you need to,
[3.] Twist your braid around into a bun,
[4.] Secure your twisted bun with a hair stick!
Do YOU love braids as much as I do?
