The Easiest Braided Updo in the Universe


You have your go-to party outfit at the ready and your night-out makeup routine down to just five minutes, but what about your hair? You could pull it back into a chic chignon, or you could use those same three minutes to try the easiest braided updo ever. Watch and learn.

Step 1: Run your fingers along your scalp and behind your ears to split your hair into two parts, a top section and a bottom section.

Step 2: Braid the top section and secure it with a hair tie.

Step 3: Braid the bottom section and secure it with a hair tie.

Step 4: Tuck the end of the bottom braid under itself and pin it in place.

Step 5: Tuck and pin the end of the top braid under the bottom one.

Done! You’re out the door in a flash and ready to dance the night away.
