Whether you’re looking for a way to tame your unruly hair, or to add a touch of elegance to your evening outfit, braids are the perfect solution for both. From an off-duty French braid to red carpet-worthy fishtail, braided hairstyles are very versatile and highly successful in achieving looks of admiration.
You may be thinking, “Yup, I’ve seen models rock sophisticated braids, but they seem way too complicated!”. Trust us, we thought so too, until we realised that achieving a breath-taking braid is a lot simpler than it seems. All you need is a good step-by-step tutorial!
Don’t believe us? We’ll show you. Simply follow our easy video tutorials, and you’ll master these creative braided hairstyles in no time.
1: Braided Updo with a Side Bun
You’ll have to trust us when we say that, even if this hairstyle looks a little intricate, it’s probably the simplest side braid bun updo you’ll ever encounter. The braid that defines this hairstyle is often called the ‘Dutch’ braid, and the main difference between this and the French braid is the you are braiding under rather than over.
Once you know how it’s done, you’ll be able to achieve the look in just a couple of minutes. Perfect for those mornings when you need to be out the door quickly (without compromising your hairdo)!
2: Braided Updo with a Low Bun
This messy, braided updo bun looks incredibly cool and works for any occasion – from a slightly uneventful day at work, to hitting the bar with friends. For this hairstyle, your hair should be parted on the side. We prefer the left side, but feel free to change things up. We’ll use a French fishtail to create the look (don’t panic – we’ll remind you how that’s done!).
