What Do I Need to Achieve This Look?

- A spare few minutes
Steps to Getting an Easy Braided Updo
Step 1: Section the front and clip away
Divide the front of your hair into two sections and clip away.
Step 2: Backcomb to add volume
Add volume by backcombing the roots at the crown of your head.
Step 3: Go for a low bun
Pull all of your hair at the back into a ponytail and then twist it around the centre to create a classic low bun. Secure the bun with pins.
Step 4: Dutch braid the front sections
Unclip one section at the front and start braiding it into a Dutch braid (swapping the hair under rather than over), finishing with a plait. If you want to level up your Dutch braiding skills, take a quick peek at our tutorial. Loosen the braid for a bigger three-dimensional look. Repeat the steps on the other side.
Step 5: Wrap the braids around the bun
Take each braid, wrap it around the bun and secure with pins. If you are keen on a more relaxed look, pull some hair out at the front and using a pin tail comb, pull the hair at the crown up.
Step 6: Fix with hair spray
To make sure the look lasts all day – fix with hair spray.
