Street Style: Braided Updo

Okay, so this isn’t so much street style as it is office style …

Earlier this week, I noticed an insanely adorable braided updo on one of my coworkers and just had to stop her to snap a couple of pics!

Turns out it’s totally simple to do, too —

  1. Part your hair as you usually do (Michelle here did a side part) and split your hair into two main sections.
  2. Do french braids all the way down your head with each section. Rubber band them.
  3. Cross them over each other, and then tuck the ends up inside.
  4. Secure with bobby pins.
  5. Hairspray to create hold. 

Voila!  The perfect summertime ‘do.

How cute is that?
