Styled In 5 Minutes: Easy Tucked-In Braided Updo

8:30 AM

I am pretty useless when it comes to styling my hair (though I have recently mastered beachy waves....booyakasha), but this simple messy updo is basically fool-proof and, therefore, my new go-to now that it's heating up here in Austin.

To get the look:

1. Loosely part hair into two sections - the looser in the back, the better. Try not to have a really hard part line in the back of your head.
2. Braid the two sections however you like - regular or fishtail would both look great.
3. Bring one braid across the back of your head, and then curve it back around. Tuck in the loose ends, and pin. Repeat on the other side, positioning the second braid over the other one and tucking in the end under the first braid.
4. Pop in a few extra pins to make sure it's secure, and you are good to go!

That's it. It's basically milkmaid braids, but reversed. So easy, even a caveman could do it.
